If you’re thinking of buying a Secretlab chair… do NOT. Winter will come.

Just realised that my 20-months old TITAN chair is also peeling in places already.

Noticed that the Carousell rewrapping/reupholstering service has an option for "Premium PU leather". Is this the same quality as the one on the Secretlab chairs? i.e. it is probable that the peeling will occur again within two years?

Now have to consider whether to re-wrap the chair or to just throw it away eventually & get a Herman Miller to replace it.

PU will definitely peel. "premium" maybe last a bit longer that's all. But I'm quite sure Secretlabs uses "premium" PU too haha.

i used his service changed napped leather. get a free Logo design. look cool for me. Nappa leather feel great. Less hot than PU leather.

Secretlab offer me lousy trade in to get new chair.
How is his service and quality of leather? How long have you been using and any issues so far? Am looking to rewrap my chair. Peeling in more places already. I can more or less peel off big patches of PU leather from my chair.

these chairs are garbage, my omega peeling after a year, and the parts that peel doesnt even come into contact with human skin.

their marketing gimmick about 'upgraded' warranty for old pu is also another trash tactic - u need to pay them/trade in which is a garbage deal. they only do that to make themselves look good and trick users that they 'care' - yea they want you to shelve out hundreds more for a trade-in LOL.

never buy a secretlab product again - complete garbage

Singapore very humid, that's one of the main factors of peeling.

Very true. It's not like Secretlab is a Singaporean company that makes chairs for the humid Singaporean weather.


Oh wait....

That's just an excuse; they could use better quality stuff that doesn't peel. It's not like thier chairs are cheap. This is just a case of maximising profit.
