Wilmington Chesterfield Sofa: Hand Dyed Cowboy Brown Leather

British Prime Minister 1742-1743

 

Our fabulous Wilmington Chesterfield is a more traditional ‘Chesterfield’ design and without doubt the aristrocrat of sofas.

 

The 1st Earl of Wilmington, more humbly known as Spencer Compton, led Britain for just short of 18 months. In 1742 he succeeded Sir Robert Walpole at the helm, however, it was an acrimonious tenure largely overshadowed by poor health. Compton’s illnesses gave his peers plenty of opportunity to overrule his leadership, and it was opportunity that wasn’t wasted. His name, however, strongly lives on today… the cities of Wilmington, Delaware; Wilmington, North Carolina and the towns of Wilmington, Massachusetts and Wilmington Vermont are named in his honour.

 

Arguably, though, his most famous reincarnation is our beautiful Wilmington Chesterfield. Crafted in anything from a Manner 1 to a Manner 4 (scroll down to our crafting menu for more information on our crafting styles), this Manner 3 pair of Chesterfields can be finished with either a buttoned, flat or cushioned seat.

 

This Wilmington brings a Wild West influence to the client’s room. The four-seater Chesterfield finished in ‘cowboy brown’ hand dyed russet leather is sumptuous and striking in its delivery. The buttoned seat presents a traditional vibe to the design with plenty of room to slouch into its arms. Thanks to the light layer of French polish, it’s exquisite to touch, smooth and endearing. The turned legs on the front of this sofa, capped with a striking brass caster, adds extra zest to this charismatic Chesterfield making it one of our most popular sellers.

Crafting Options

From your iconic wing back Queen Anne chairs, to a 12ft deep buttoned Chesterfield, there really is no shortage of options. We offer three different crafting options. Each crafting option differs to meet the requirements that are important to each individual client. Manner 1, Manner 2 and Manner 3.

Manner One

Our Manner 1 is identical to those of the 19th Century. The seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung, with 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs to help the build stay strong and never loose it’s shape. Only using natural materials, the fillings consist of horse tail and coconut fibre before being lined with organic lambswool. Each and every fixing is hand tacked and the solid beechwood Mortise and Tenon frame sits on our gorgeous hand turned walnut feet. Our Manner 1 also comes with the finest hand dyed British leather or an alternative pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.

 

Our Manner 1 is the amongst the finest crafted furniture in the world and takes up to a month to craft.

Manner
Manner Two

 Our Manner 2 option is a blend between the traditionally crafted 19th century pieces, and an ever so slightly modern approach. Just like our Manner 1, the seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung with 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs. The key difference between our Manner 1 and 2 is that we use a rubberised bristle and loose horse hair to fill. We will also staple the fixings in place of the hand tacked technique. This allows us to cut the production time down by around 96hours. The beechwood frame is also dowelled, glues and screwed and sits upon hand turned beechwood feet. This option comes with a hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.

 

Our Manner 2 option remains one of the finest crafted pieces of furniture available today.

Manner
Manner Three

Our Manner 3 option is the modern approach to traditional craftsmanship. The seat is fully loose coil sprung, however the back and arms are not. Instead of using natural fillings we use a medium density foam and line the inside with pure cotton felt. The beechwood frame is also dowelled, glued and screwed and sits upon hand turned beechwood feet. This option comes with a hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.

 

Manner 3 is our modern approach to crafting yet still un-paralleled in terms of the high street or specialists.
