ID:	14301I have only had this chair about 6 weeks, I am the only one who sits in it and Iím not a large person. There is always a large indentation in the back it never springs out. Iím not in it all day just in the evenings. Itís unprotected leather so it scratches easily which I donít mind I wanted that look. Is this normal? I have attached some photos. I expect this to last for years but am afraid it wonít or I got a lemon. Click image for larger version.

    You have a pull-up pure aniline leather on that chair, its a VERY nice hide. Pull-ups are designed to show color bursts when subjected to pressure (ie., scratches easily). That's the sign of REAL leather, embrace it. Now, this class of leather has very little topcoat on it, just a waxy finish. You want to make sure you keep it cleaned and conditioned regularly and not put in direct sunlight to avoid fade. I have the pull up care kits in my store @ $ 83 per kit, or the Giles and Moore # 33 Conditioner (my personal favorite) 2 oz is $ 30,6 oz is $ 65, and make your own cleaner with plain soap and water.

    Readjust your back core. Recline the chair with you out of it, remove the seat cushion and you should see a zipper on the bottom of the back casing. Open the zipper, pull out the fiber core cushion, and fluff it briskly like you are throwing a pizza into the air. When fully fluffed, reinstall. If that doesn't fix it, request your selling dealer to order a extra full core from Bradington Young to put in the back. That should be at no charge.

    Your photos are sideways because you are using an iPhone. To get them to post correctly, you MUST edit them after taking the shot. The easiest way to edit is in the phone and simply press EDIT and then CROP and once you make a crop, save it. Then when you post it will display as you expect.

    Will it be difficult to get the cushion back in? The leather really is beautiful and just what I wanted itís a little darker than I expected but still wonderful. I may consider your cleaning kit. After seeing this I have been wishing I ordered the Hancock and Moore that I really wanted but was about $2,000 more. I will try taking the cushion out and see if that helps otherwise I will contact the store. Thank you so much. I wish I were closer to your store I'm originally from Maryland living here near Chicago itís so hard because few carry these lines and have very few on the floor especially Hancock and Moore. Thank you so much for your prompt response.

    It can require some sweat equity to get the core back in. Most stores won’t send someone over for that, we certainly would not. It’s normal usage, not a defect. It doesn’t work well to try to fluff it in the casing (many do), has to come out and really be tossed.
