AKICILJ: Leather vs. Microfiber

cavandal and I are upgrading our Media Entertainment Center Derriere Support. We've now been to a couple of places looking for a short couch w/recliners and/or loveseats w/recliners. At the moment, our top choices are an expensive but well-made leather couch from Borofka's (near Southdale) or a Maxwell Sofa from JC Penny's that I like better for it's reclining positions... but only comes in micro-fiber or other cloth.

So... anyone have experience/opinions on micro-fiber vs. leather upholstery for couches/comfy chairs? How much of an advantage is leather?
