Simple Aftercare for Your Chesterfield Sofa

27th August 2008

Your Distinctive Chesterfield was made with care by time served craftsmen and we want it to look as good in the years ahead as it did when it left our workshops. You do not want your leather to dry out prematurely so try not to place it next to hot radiators as an example. Never use abrasive materials as these will damage the finish, nor leave denim on aniline leathers as the colours may well run off and always regularly dust your chesterfield sofa or club chair, reducing the ingress of grime, treating the leather with one of our approved leather clean and feed products.

Naturally your leather will over time age and you will see it form its own patina, a characteristic of quality leather. You may notice colour variance on high traffic surfaces of the chair or sofa creases, and changes in suppleness of the surface leather. Sensible precautions will ensure that your leather sofa or club chair will continue to look good. Avoid studs on jeans and trousers, responsible for more scratches and damage than most others. Spilling wine and other such liquids can be problematic, but blotting the spill with a lint cloth and sponging off with warm water followed by leather feed and clean will minimise the effects.

Take care of your Distinctive Chesterfield and it will give you years of service and continue to look good.
