Vintage Leathers

Our vintage leather is a rustic, natural, full grain leather with a subtly distressed surface. This finish gives a rugged touch to any Chesterfield covered. Bringing out the natural beauty of the thoughtfully selected hides.

Dark Brown

Heritage Leathers

This, beautiful leather is our very finest leather. It is distinctive due to the fact the carefully selected hides are in their most natural state. These natural features add individuality and personality to the finished chesterfield.

Red Wood
Midnight Blue

Antique Leathers

The S.W. James antique leather is a fine, but incredibly resilient leather. It can be found on all our traditional antique look chesterfields in four bold and moody shades that lend a real character to the piece they adorn.

Herringbone Wools

A more modern and contemporary twist on the classic chesterfield look - our British sourced wools are of the finest quality and provide the perfect blend of comfort, longevity and style that help bring a new angle to our sofas and chairs.
