Taking the strain: why are some traditional Chesterfield sofa cushions better than others?

Chesterfield Sofa

Not all traditional Chesterfield sofas are created equally. The best Chesterfield furniture is hand- made by time-served finest craftsmen, using only the finest materials to guarantee the Chesterfield furniture will last and keep its shape. This is a particularly important issue when it comes to seats and cushions. When you buy a piece of furniture you expect the seats to retain their comfort and shape. Sadly, this isn’t always the case: some Chesterfield sofas cushions soon start to sag.

The Expo Leather Company has set some stringent standards for the quality and durability of its sofa cushions. We guarantee only to use the best materials.  In fact, we’re so committed to giving you a quality product, that we source our seat fillings (Duratech) from one of, if not, the country’s best suppliers of foam and fibre fillings, Drury Adams Limited. What makes these sofa fillings so suitable for the manufacture of traditional Chesterfield furniture? The answer to that lies in the material itself. Duratech contains fibres that are made from 100% recycled polyester bottles. It’s the first, and only, seat to have received a Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) Gold Award.

The unique Duratech cushion has been created using three-dimensional polyester spiral fibres that, unlike conventional saw-tooth formations, offers unrivalled flexibility and movement. The cushion has undergone exhaustive testing by FIRA including replicating the equivalent of five years use by a fifteen stone person, was found to give 95% loft retention and offer exceptional resilience and comfort.

So if you’re looking for a traditionally built Chesterfield sofa, then you really couldn’t come to a better manufacturer than the Chesterfield Sofa Company. Our furniture is not only manufactured to the highest possible standards, and very competitively priced, but it’s built to last.
