The waste factor for good leather hides used for upholstery is only 10% to 15%. You are figuring 25% waste, which would be a worst case scenario with a lower quality hide.

Yes, I know there are hides larger than 45 to 55 square feet, but 70 square feet is not normal. That's why I said "average".

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
