Leather Recliner

What are your top several recommendations for manufacturers of leather recliners? I'm looking at Hancock & Moore and MotionCraft so far. H&M is twice the price for similar look, but it seems they have earned a stellar reputation for quality and customer service. I cannot find as much information about MotionCraft. I am most interested in quality leather and construction. I don't buy furniture very often, so I want it to last, but I also want to be sure that I'm not overpaying for features available with other manufacturers for considerably less money.

RE: Leather Recliner

Stationary Upholstery will always outlast motion furniture by 3X +, so keep this in mind when purchasing a recliner. Dont go all out on the best top grain aniline dyed leather, or your endup throwing out a recliner with worn-out mechanism but leather still in relative good condition.
Look for the best quality mechanism, exclude any imports from Asia, only buy US made L&P or Hickory Springs. But even some of their mechanisms are imported from China.
