THIS CHESTERFIELD SOFA WAS A TOTAL LOSS BECAUSE OF
DRY ROT, SO WE REMADE THE FRAME PIECES FROM CURLY MAPLE, CARVED NEW MAHOGANY FEET, THEN REBUILT THE WHOLE UNIT TO ORIGINAL
SPECS USING ONLY SPRINGS, ANIMAL HAIR, COTTON BATTING AND DOWN FILLED BAGS MADE FROM MUSLIN PRECOVER CLOTH. FINISHED IT WITH
A WAVERLY BROCADE AND THE CLIENTS HEIRLOOM SOFA IMPORTED FROM IRELAND WAS MADE WHOLE AGAIN.
With this clients permission we
were able to keep the frame patterns, so this unit and its companion Love Seat and Arm Chair are available for anyone who
wants the very best that money can buy.
These units are made just like the original antique pieces, so will last for generations,
and come with a lifetime guarantee against damage from workmanship
error. They will be repaired at no cost to the client if the frame fails in any way or any materials including the cover fabric
THESE ARE PHOTOS OF HOW WE FABRICATE THE SOLID MAHOGANY
First we begin with the finest Mahogany available,
then our craftsman will sketch out what needs to be carved away, and after several hours of work we have genuine antique looking
reproductions of what was originally on the actual imported piece which was dated to be 200 years old.
Note that it takes as long to hand craft these
feet as it does for a typical mass production facility to generate a whole sofa. Just so you have some idea of why these pieces
cost what they do, it takes 320 man hours [ eight work weeks] to hand craft each one of our top of the line reproductions.
We use only the finest materials such as African Mahogany for the feet and American Native Curly Maple for the frames.
Now the whole unit is built out of hand tied coil springs covered
in 20 oz burlap. Then the springs are covered in animal hair, cotton batting and finally with down filled precover bags. There
is no foam, cardboard or plastic to be found in our pieces. They are remade just like the original sofa we repired for a client
that was brought over to America from Ireland.
And just like that one, our units will last for hundreds of years, which is why we are so
bold and generous with the "lifetime" guarantee ! Each sofa weighs 370 pounds and can support one half ton
of weight or five adult men without breaking.
We had restored one sofa that survived a fire which destroyed completely a Five Star stove, Sub Zero
refrigerator and all the rest of the modern furniture in the building. But because of the materials we used to cover the unit
[cotton batting] that acted as a "fire proof blanket", we were able to save the frame, all the springs, and the
solid Mahogany front and rear feet to bring the piece back again under the articles of our "lifetime guarantee"
that we proudly stand behind 100%
the client had no insurance, we did it all for free.
