- Quantity Available: 1
An absolutely stunning leather 'Gainsborough chair' in a beautiful antique cognac colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality.
Height is adjustable with swivel/tilt mechanism.
The hand-dyed russet hide bears all the hallmarks of natural leather including scars, stretch marks, grain and texture variation.
They are upholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued. Because they are hand dyed we can finish the leather to any colour requested, and the beautiful antique patina is achieved by the special walnut based stains that we use in the process.
The studding is achieved with close individual nails / studs not by using strips, and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.
The show wood on the swivel chairs is solid mahogany and the frames are made from solid beech, so we only use hardwoods.
The castors used on the swivel chairs are plastic twin wheel socket castors, we can fit brass castors at an extra cost of 30 per chair, these look better but are not as maneuverable as the modern plastic version.
Seats have individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand sewn to the beechwood frame. The filling is canvas, fibre and felt.
The effect can be very pleasing although bear in mind that this hand-dyed leather can fade in direct sunlight.
Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for.
Available in other colours upon request.
Bespoke orders and wholesale enquiries welcome.
