All our sofas at The Chesterfield BrandTM are characterized by the highest quality of materials and their extended lifetime. Our sofas and chairs are completely handcrafted. Our sofa frames are made from solid hardwood (glued and screwed) which guarantees a high level of firmness and withstands tension due to the solid suspension. The exterior of the sofa is made of the highest quality leather. As a result, we are able to offer you our unique Platinum 12 years warranty which cannot be found anywhere else on the market.
Highest quality bovine leather
Our furniture is made of the highest quality bovine leather (and not like other, non-original Chesterfields, that have artificial leather on the sides 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 has only a light layer of pigment. The leather is still well protected against dirt and grime. This leather is not the cheapest of 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 our tannery for three weeks. The leather will be tanned and dyed and eventually it will be solid and stable enough for our purposes.
The other type of leather is Wax leather. We use this leather for our Vintage model. This is a type of leather that has been made to look old by means of a unique procedure, which allows the leather to obtain this Vintage look in a short period of time. This leather constantly develops the “wear and tear” look in its appearance. The more it is used, the older it looks.
Through the use of our buttons the distinctively familiar Chesterfield pattern arises, enhancing the renowned checker pattern, the stitching and the comfortable upholstery. These buttons are pulled inwards with strong rope and are 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. We use Nosag springs, which are the so-called zigzag springs that create the stability of the furniture. Contrary to other materials such as elastics, straps or bands, the Nosag springs have a much longer life span and comfortable sitting pleasure.
The handcrafted bovine leather cushions use Dacron as filler along with polyether and pocket springs. Because of the layer of springs and polyether flakes, a “sandwich” construction is created that perfectly 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 used in our Vintage model. As a result the latter has a more Shabby look that fits the appearance better.
