Your Leather Purchase

It is very important that we point out and that you understand the normal natural characteristics of leather upholstery and that it is quite possible that these unique features will be present on your new furniture when it is delivered to you.  These features are appreciated and enjoyed by discerning owners of leather upholstery.

  1. Healed scars, variations in graining, wrinkles, veining and differences in tone are all quite normal and proof of the natural origin of leather.
  2. 'Puddling' of seats will occur with use, with the stretching of leather and settlement of the interiors, it is recommended to rotate use of seating areas to maintain an even appearance.
  3. Fibre filled cushions require 'dressing' and 'plumping' after delivery, as 'dressed' regularly to maintain the furniture's appearance and prevent flattening of the fibre filled interiors.
  4. In the case of 'Waxed' and semi/full 'Aniline' leathers, these will mark to give an 'aged authentic look.  
  5. Dye transfer may occur from certain items of clothing, which is particularly noticeable on lighter coloured leathers - some clothing nowadays is not as colourfast as years gone by i.e. jeans- this problem is not a fault of the leather furniture.
