There's no way you'd mistake the cover for leather and I can't say yet how durable the faux-leather will be. It's very soft and may not stand up well to things like buckles and zips (I'm not about to test it!) but the stools are certainly easy to assemble (four bolts using the supplied Allen key) and very comfortable. At the price, I'd have no hesitation in recommending them. The trader I used, great-deal-forever, got them to me next working day.
ONE TIP: The gas struts come with little black caps, presumably to stop the struts being activated in transit. The instructions don't tell you to remove them but I'm pretty sure you should do!
UPDATE 8Feb15: It may be helpful to know that, 13 months on, we're still happy with these. I was right in thinking the faux-leather wouldn't withstand scratches very well, so they're not ideal if you have animals that might scratch them, but we've been careful with ours and they're fine, with just one little scuff. They're £2 cheaper than when we bought them, and I'm about to order two more.
