We start to imagine a new Chesterfield Sofa that keeps style and shape of the classic model having a completely new coloured look.

The decision that helped to keep a vintage appearance was to use the antiqued rub-off leathers since they are durable, with a darker base colour which over time will start to reveal itself and gives the leather a true antiqued old patina we were looking for.
After choosing the antiqued leathers we knew that there were mainly four colours: oxblood red, antique green, antique tan and an antique blue.

We started to draw almost every different combination among the leathers.
The greatest efforts came at this point, when moving a colour near the other changed completely the rest of the colour scheme. Even the shape of the sofa was influenced by the most used leather in the scheme and in some ways the perspective was too narrow.
In addition, each piece of leather is patiently sewn together, which is something never done in a chesterfield sofa and it complicates the manufacturing process.
All this time spent on searching for the best colour scheme combination was the key for having a patchwork sofa completely different from the others.
After working with colours we started making lot of sketches that helped to have a final view of the product.
Before the production we used some real prototypes of chesterfield to see what result came out from the combination chosen and the best matches were used to create Harleq.
