One of the most lovely chairs I have seen for a while.
Leather Button Back Chair
It was in bad condition but the frame structure was good and most importantly the owner found it so very comfortable. Indeed we had to wait till after a comfortable Christmas to collect and start the restoration.
Leather is not always leather
Many of us have modern leather chairs – we repair and reupholster a lot of them. Sometimes the ‘leather’ is not actually leather though. Modern factory produced leather furniture can sometimes be a treatment cover to look, feels and smell like leather but its not. Sometimes the leather is only on the parts you touch and sometimes it is very thin rolled leather.
Genuine Leather Tanned Hide
The ‘leather tanned hide’ we use is about 1/4 cm thick, tanned from a genuine hide and will last as long as Sherlock Holmes leather library chair.
