Making the Harlequin Sofa we decide not to use fake string line studs. Most of the factories nowadays choose them to decrease working hours and craftsmen's ability to insert them correctly. The individual studs are harder to put them all in line but the final result is absolutely unique: the arm is attractively embellished and this gives to the sofa a higher value.
The Harleq Chesterfield sofa has the traditional solid mahogany standard bun foot to create a low comfortable feel while for the Queen Anne we use the classic mahogany legs that named the chair. In addition to this all our Chesterfield Sofas are delivered with the standard bun foot to prevent any damage to additional legs.
By request we can also provide the brass caster leg that comes with all our traditional antique sofas. This leg gives a vintage classy feel to any of our Chesterfield Sofas along with the solid mahogany wood top.
Each spring is hand inserted into the seats and backs of our furniture with each spring working independently of the others. Serpentine steel spring system with interwoven webbing belts on the seat, springs on the back and arms. We use either the interwoven elastabelt system, metal serpentine springs or coil sprung units dependent upon the individual furniture shape and the sitting posture required.
Our new design for the Harleqin Sofa requires four different leathers rubbed lightly by a professional leather worker with a special solution to reveal the lighter colour below. Only the finest quality leathers are used in the making of our furniture. All leather pieces are covered exclusively in select top grain leather procured from the finest tanneries without using PU, splits or Bi-cast leather.
We decided to use the rub-off Antique italian Leathers in the classic hides of Oxblood Red, Antique Green, Antique Tan and Antique Avion Blue to give the appearance of an old vintage sofa but with the benefit of being a brand new piece.
These leathers are then sewn together and hide in the way that the seams are not visible.
The result is Harleq, a new vintage patchwork look for a classic Chesterfield sofa.
