LA Good Question: Fix This Leather Sink Hole?

LA Good Question: Fix This Leather Sink Hole?

I have a set of four padded leather chairs and have noticed that they are starting to develop ripples emanating from the "point of impact." Specifically, the daily application of a heavy roundish object seems to be both compressing the padding and stretching the leather of the chairs, creating a sink hole that threatens their otherwise clean lines. Is there anything I can do to minimize this development? As you can see in the picture, this has just started but I remember having a leather couch ten years ago that became horribly distorted. FYI, the chairs are of very high quality and the roundish object is typical of the genre.

Thanks,

Hmm, Flavorpacket, you can't be the first person to encounter this problem, could it be that this is the natural evolution of a leather chair and should be embraced? Readers! Knowers! Leather aficionados! To the rescue!
