Is this chair from Pottery Barn made with quality leather? I've research it and get conflicting reports about whether top grain leather is good or not. I appreciate the help.

Pottery barn is one of my favorite stores
i have recently bought quiet a few things there for my baby room and the quality is fantastic
Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade because it is split from the top layer of blemished hide then sanded and refinished. This is how they get rid of scars and scrapes and light cow brands. Top grain leather does not age nicely with use. It is strong and durable, but not good enough for Saddleback.

What Is Top-Grain Leather?

As stated above, the top grain is the smoothest, supplest, most natural, and best kind of furniture leather your money can buy. Each hide is as individual and unique as a fingerprint. Real, top-grain is comprised of about 12-14% water. For this reason, top-grain leather acclimates quickly to your body temperature. Leather is a natural product and thus breathes like one.

Top-grain comes in two different grades: aniline and semi-aniline. Aniline is the most natural and has no protective coatings or treatments that alter its natural feel. Because of this, it's the softest but also susceptible to stains, while semi-aniline may be coated with a protective topcoat.

Many people who have experienced “sweating” on leather and are therefore turned off by the idea of leather furniture are referring to a leather product like bonded leather or vinyl. This is especially true in car seats that sit in the sun for hours.

Top Grain Leather: This is the 2nd best quality and is less expensive and more stain resistant than full grain leather. Quoting from Wikipedia, “It’s had the “split” layer separated away, making it thinner and more pliable than full-grain. Its surface has been sanded and a finish coat added to the surface which results in a colder, plastic feel with less breathability, and will not develop a natural patina.” From what we have seen, the coating finish on this type of leather varies with each manufacturer. So the price depends on the thickness of the coat, the less thick the coating the pricier the leather (because it will show more of the qualities of full grain leather). Here are two examples of higher end top grain pieces; the first one is a couch from Hamilton Sofa & Leather Gallery and the second is from Belfort Furniture.

After full grain leather, top grain leather is the best quality leather you can buy.
