Chesterfield couches of The Chesterfield BrandTM are characterised by the high quality and the long service life. The Couches and Chairs are completely handmade and nailed. The frame of the couch consists of solid hardwood (glued and screwed) which guarantees a high level of shape firmness and withstands the tension due to the solid suspension. The entire outside of the couch is made of the highest quality leather. As a result of the fact that the produced Chesterfields have an excellent quality, we are also able to give our unique Platinum 10 years warranty which cannot be found anywhere else on the market.
Highest quality bovine leather
The Chesterfield furniture of The Chesterfield BrandTM is made of the best quality bovine leather (and not like with other, not original Chesterfields, artificial leather on the side and the back). These Chesterfields are delivered in two different types of leather, namely Semi aniline and Wax leather. Semi aniline leather beautifully displays the structure of the leather. As a result, the leather only has a light layer of pigment. Yet the leather is well protected against dirt. This leather is not the cheapest in its kind, but it is the leather with the highest quality. Only the upper layer of the leather is used. The leather is processed in a tannery during three weeks. The leather will be tanned and dyed and eventually it will be solid and stable enough. The other type of leather is Wax leather. We use this leather for our Vintage version. This is a type of leather that has been made old by means of a procedure, which in any case ensures the leather to obtain this Vintage look in a short period of time. This leather constantly processes the wear and tear in its appearance. The more it is used, the older it looks.
Partly because of the buttons, the typical Chesterfield pattern arises, consisting of the checker pattern, the stitching and the comfortable upholstery. These buttons are pulled inwards with strong rope and tightened to the frame. This is the strongest and most original way of padding.
The furniture of The Chesterfield BrandTM has a standard spring-core. For this purpose we use Nosag springs, which are so-called zigzag springs that create the shape stability of the furniture. Contrary to, for example, elastic materials like straps or bands, the Nosag springs have a much longer service life and a comfortable seat.
The handmade bovine leather cushions have Dacron as filler and the filling further consists of polyether and pocket springs. Because of the layer of feathers and polyether, a “sandwich” construction is created that perfect adjusts to light and heavy loads. The cushions with spring-core (standard for Antique and Uni colour) offer more resistance than, for example, fillings that consist of foam and flakes such as applied to the Vintage, but as a result the latter has a more Shabby look that fits the appearance better.
