The distinctive features and precious processing details of the Chester are all present, revisited here in a lighter form in the quest for an informal elegance achieved by subtraction: the historic capitonné remains on the backrest while the base of the sofa disappears; the metal feet are almost invisible to further emphasise the beauty of the seat; compared with the classic two-seater sofa, there is just one large cushion which is even more comfortable. The elements without armrests and backrest also make it possible to add accessories like the Fidelio side tables and lamp, enhancing the functionality of the various configurations.
The supporting structure of the Chester Line sofa is made from solid seasoned beechwood. The seat, backrest and armrest spring system consists of hand-tied biconical springs on jute belts. The backrest and armrests are padded with hand-shaped vegetable horsehair. Seat cushion in goose down with the addition of a polyurethane foam stabilising insert. The upholstery is in Pnz® leather, which can be matched with the Pnz fabrics in different combinations. Wooden feet covered with leather or blade-shaped aluminium feet with brushed-burnished finish; alternatively, classic version feet, high or low, in beech with dark walnut stain or lacquered black.
HOW TO CARE FOR FURNITURE WITH FABRIC UPHOLSTERY
Whether or not your upholstered furnishings are purely decorative or both functional and stylish, careful cleaning and maintenance of the fabric grants long term satisfaction.
To fully enjoy your fabric seating and ensure its longevity, please follow a few basic rules:
- Don’t place your seating near a fireplace that’s in use.
- Avoid exposure to excessive sunlight.
- Be careful with jeans that can transfer colour onto the fabric: this may be unfixable.
- Don’t expose your seating to scratches from pets or sharp objects (e.g. studs, buckles).
