Here’s a question for you: which chesterfield sofa covering gets better the older it gets? The answer, of course, is leather. The more crinkled and creased it gets, the better it looks. Sadly the same can’t be said about musicians. Anyone who saw the coverage of Glastonbury at the weekend will testify to that. Whilst the Stones may still be able to rock and sell out a stadium, age has neither been kind nor forgiving. Our range of finest quality leathers fortunately are rather more robust than Mick and the boys, and can withstand life’s excesses rather more forgivingly. Trust us, our leather chesterfields will not grow old disgracefully, but will look dignified and attractive no matter what you choose to throw at them.
So what makes the Chesterfield Sofa Company’s leather chesterfield sofas so hard-wearing? Well, it’s simple down to the quality of the leathers we use. We’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating, we don’t use demicks – or off-cuts stitched together, if that makes it easier to understand. We only use full hide quality leathers in the production of our leather chesterfield sofas, settees and chairs. We always strive to deliver the best, and as far as we’re concerned you’ll only produce the finest products if you use the best possible materials.
By using full hides, we can guarantee quality and uniformity. This means that our customers know that the colour, lustre, finish and texture will always be guaranteed. What’s more full hides also guarantee strength and integrity. Chesterfield sofas created using scraps of leather may appear to be cheaper, but the fact is they will never have the same kind of resilience to wear and tear as those manufactured using full hides. The more seams there are, the more likely they’ll prove to be problematic. It stands to reason that there will inevitably be issues at some stage with problems like seam splitting, tearing, uneven wear, fading, colour changes and even potentially sagging. That isn’t an issue we have ever needed to address.
So if you’re considering buying a new leather chesterfield sofa, then look no further than the Chesterfield Sofa Company. When you buy from us, you know you can buy with confidence. We’ve built our reputation of quality and longevity, and we’re determined to maintain that reputation. Yes the prices of some of our competitors may be cheaper, but they’re not built to last. What may have looked shiny and new when you bought it will deteriorate quickly, and all you’ll be left with is a saggy specimen in the corner of your living room. What would you rather have in 10 years’ time – an elegant and graceful distressed leather chesterfield settee, or a creased, leathery and worn out sofa? Answers on a postcard please. If you’re still not sure, then watch the tape of Glastonbury again and see if that helps to focus the mind.
