Individual Nails 

All of the furniture we produce is made with individual nails not strip studs

Leather Types

Aniline leather is the most natural looking, with natural surface visible, but is less resistant to soiling does tend to show marks which adds to it natural appearence

Semi-aniline leather is somewhere in-between on both counts, having a light surface coating making it slightly harder wearing than the Full Aniline leather.

Pull-up leather
 A leather with a natural appearance which lightens in colour when stretched giving the leather a natural aged effect which will lighten alot more during wear to produce a unique worn-in effect with time.

Antique Rub Off Leather A special temperary surface colour is added to the colour which is then antiqued (Rubbed off) by hand using a soultion which only removes the top coat which gives the perfect look for a traditional piece of furniture that has a 'worn' appearance. this leather is then lacquered to give it a sealed top coat this is a very hardwaring leather that is easy to look after.

Chesterfield Sofa Bed

When Chesterfield sofa were designed three hundred years ago nobody at the time could imagine that one day this beautiful sofa would be fitted with a bed inside but the progress of technology and invention of folded bed actions made this a reality.
Nowadays for people who live in apartments in the city centres with a limited space or people who are looking for a temporary comfortable bed for their overnight guests have the advantage of having a Chesterfield sofa which serves as a elegant and beautiful sofa during the day time and will turn to a comfortable bed at night time.
Our Chesterfield sofa beds are fitted with high quality three fold slated bed and sprung mattress. The Chesterfield 2-seater sofa bed is fitted with a single bed and the 3-seater sofa bed is fitted with a double bed.
We have made various sofa beds for high class hotels and the bed actions that we use are what are used on many high class cruise ships so this gives you some idea of the quality of the bed actions we use.

Our Bespoke Chesterfield Sofas

The early leather Chesterfield sofa had a rather rigid and uniform design with low back, same level arms and low seat but during years and decades the design and form of Chesterfield sofa evolved and diversified and sofas with wider arms or higher backs or with sloped arms or with legs appeared under the name of Chesterfield with some resemblances to the original design. Also the early Chesterfield sofas were made in very few distinct colours such as two toned brown, red or green but with progress in dying techniques leather Chesterfield sofas entered the market in large verity of leather colours and leather finishes and later on in various types of fabrics such as velvet and faux leather.
As a bespoke furniture manufacturer we offer all these possibilities in designs and colours to our customers and do our best to make sure the end product would be the pride and joy of our customers and suit their individual requirements.
All our Chesterfield sofas are made to order according to the individual taste and decisions made by customer. If you want the sofa wider, deeper, taller we are happy to follow suit. In addition all other details such as type and colour of leather, colour of the wooden parts, type of bun-feet or form of legs, choice of the fillings, colour of studs and so on is determined by yourselves.
If you had the possibility we recommend that you pay a visit to our show-room situated in our factory so we can discuss your requirements in details and show you different models which would be helpful for coming to a decision. In addition you would have access to a large collection of leathers and also fabrics in our show-room.
The choice of the leather for Chesterfield sofa is an important step so when you contact us please make sure you give the accurate description of the colours of your choice and also the type of leather (such as two toned, smooth, shiny, distressed, old looking etc.) so we can send you the right samples for your verification. We always try to send the large samples and as many samples as we can in order to give you a wider collection to choose from.

Apart from the leather quality which you would verify and approve by yourselves before you place an order it would be useful to mention that all our Chesterfield sofas are made with solid Beech Harwood frames (doweled and screwed), full hide upholstered with no splits, fire retardant foams, hand stuffed cushions, webbed base, individually hand studded and all furniture hand crafted by our craftsmen with lifetime experience in traditional and classic furniture.
