    Lightbulb Theatre reclining seats and reclining sofa, vinyl or leather

    We just took delivery last week of our 369 rl and were looking at the tags for the furniture and can't tell if it's vinyl or leather...... Anyone have the answer? There is no mention....

    Thanks, Jeanette

    I do not know about the Solitudes, but under Reflections on The Grand Design home page for Interior Standards it list leather for the recliners and the sofa.

    I was curious, so I looked up both. Yes, the Reflection line says "Leather". The Solitude line is non-specific.

    They must have misspelled it in the Reflection brochure as sofa, theater seating or recliners are leather-ish but not leather!

    Here's a link to the Lippert - Thomas Payne Furniture Collection that's used in Grand Design RV's...no mention that they're leather. http://www.lippertcomponents.com/tho...ure-collection

    The Grand Design website does not say "synthetic leather," it says "leather." It is really lame of them to mislead potential buyers and buyers with incorrect information. I don't mind the vinyl, so far it is good, but they need to remove that information from the Reflection standards. Better just to omit any mention as they do on the Solitude standards.

    They look a lot like leather but they definitely are not as we now have several small visible holes in them where our cat's claws much too easily poked through when we picked him up. I wish they would find a different material (maybe bonded leather) that is more rugged. Actually going to real leather would be more appropriate in an RV as nice as the Solitude, especially since the recliners are otherwise so nice.
