It's a very soft fabric that is easily cleanable (says the reviewers). I am still waiting for the skirt parts to settle down, they had padding all around it and they just won't lay down yet.
We are working on getting some vinyl for the walls, I'll keep ya posted, but we are looking very bare on that wall.
Here is a close up of the material. I really like the little balls that go all the way around the edges. It's a nice touch. I sit in the chair daily already and it's so comfy. David fits very nicely as well. I can see us spending a lot of time here.
