There's different grades of PU leather. Cheap ones peel really fast because the leather feel layer is very thin. Think car seats are also PU leather most of the time, but I have not seen many cases of peeling car seats even when exposed to hot sun. From the sounds of it, this product is not good, especially with a hefty price tag.

For a durable and comfortable chair, I feel a good mesh type seat is still better for me. No peeling, and cooling because of the mesh.

Wear and tear not equals to faulty.

I've been using a $200 Vhive PU leather chair for 8-9 yrs already but no flaking issue at all. Just one of the arm rest loose only.

Even those who got cheaper mesh chair.. Try to top up get herman miller aeron or other model.. The build quality is still heaven and hell. I tried cheaper mesh chair from hwz MO also.. The build totally not as good.. Mechanism will have squeekling sound. Parts get loose easily.

That is interesting, could be environment also. Do you use it in an air-con room, my is non air-con. Could contact with sweat also cause it to deteriorate? I'm not sure.

But from that experience I did not buy any pu leather chair ever again hahaha. It's fabric or mesh for me.

That would be one of the reasons. But in short, good PU leather tend to last longer just like the ones used on car seats. They go through hot sun and sweat/ water, but I don't usually see the PU leather peeling.

Car ones won't peel, but they do crack.

It will come in the form of your chair peeling. It will Snow white and black flakes all over your room. For $500, it’s advertised as the ‘crème de la crème’ of chairs. When buying it, I figured to pay a bit more for a quality one that would last me.

This ‘Premium quality’, ‘durable’, made with ‘High quality core materials’ chair lasted me 15 months before it started to peel simultaneously in multiple places including the sides. Usage may Varys, but It’s probably not just a super abrasive butt mistreating the chair. It hasn’t seen direct sunlight, just regular ol’ Singapore humidity, like every other chair for home use.

Support offered to replace the seat and backrest leather for $150, about 30% of the chair itself. Plus a very generous complimentary bottle of ‘premium’ leather cleaner. $150 for another brief 15 months before my chair turns Greyscale and my room Castle Black? Not today.

It’s not all doom and gloom. It’s a comfortable chair for sure, and the mechanisms have held up well. It’s just that if you’re expecting it to last you for years to come, I implore you - don’t get Littlefingered.

U nv ask them why like tat?

Just get a Herman Miller, i got one from unwanted many years back, now still perfectly fine. And I don't take care of that chair at all, sweaty, dirty just sit. If need just use wet cloth to wipe. Don't even need to maintain.
