Your Chesterfield was lovingly built by experienced craftsmen from high quality materials. However, now that you’ve had it for a good few years and it’s starting to look a bit tired, it doesn’t mean that it’s ready to go in a skip. Far from it.
A top quality British built, hand crafted sofa like a Chesterfield could quite literally last a lifetime such is the quality of its internal construction. A Chesterfield is an icon of British style and over recent years has come right back into fashion. Its classical lines compliment both modern and traditional interiors. It really is timeless design classic.
It can be tempting to look at the adverts from the High Street sofa retailers and think that your current sofa really needs to be replaced. However, it will probably only take a few months with your new suite before you see that all sofas are not created equal. And very few give you the quality and style that as a Chesterfield owner you are used to.
Unless you buy at the high end, most of the sofas available either online or on the High Street are now built in the Far East from cheap materials such as chipboard, low density foam and bonded leather, which is basically scraps of leather glued together to resemble real leather. It is NOT proper leather, it won’t feel as nice as the leather on your Chesterfield and it certainly won’t last as long.
Your Chesterfield sofa will have been hand crafted in Britain from top quality materials. Rather than chipboard your Chesterfield frame will be made from a quality hardwood and rather than being nailed together with a nail gun, it will be tightly screwed together. The cushions will be proper high density foam too, which keeps its shape and resilience for years.
Most modern sofas start to lose their shape and comfort after only two or three years. Leather sofas become baggy as the low quality foam loses shape and compresses at the same time as the cheap leather stretches and frames start to creak and squeak as they gradually lose stiffness due to poor materials and sloppy assembly.
Bring your Chesterfield sofa or chair back to life!
Your Chesterfield sofa or chair is more than likely in as good condition under the surface as it was the day it left the factory, such is the quality of its construction. All it probably needs its recovering in a modern quality leather to be ready for another 10 or 15 years service.
We can even recover your Chesterfield sofa in a high quality fabric. We have a massive selection of quality fabrics in an amazing range of colours and finishes. Your sofa will look completely different, unrecognisable in fact!
Unlike some reupholsterers, we always strip sofas right back to the frame to check for any loosening of fixings or any damage that may have occurred during its life. If we find any, we’ll fix it, replacing any rails or springs with original quality parts.
You can choose from a huge range of high quality leathers and fabrics and our work is never anything less than first class, you’ll be 100% satisfied and that’s a guarantee.
We cover the whole of Central Scotland and offer a completely free no-obligation quotation. You could save a fortune on buying new.
If you have a high quality sofa like a Duresta, Chesterfield or Natuzzi don’t throw it away because it’s looking a bit worn around the edges! Get it recovered instead. It will cost around the same as a standard High Street sofa but will last much longer, be much more comfortable (and for a lot longer) and it will retain its value too. And at less than half the price of buying a new quality sofa, it’s a real bargain too!
