Discovering A Craft - Chesterfields
Making Of A Chester's Sofa
The foundation of a Chester’s masterpiece, our frames are crafted carefully calculated dimensions. The superior quality Kiln Dried European Beech and Hard Pine Wood used prevents the onslaught of time on furniture, like warping, bending, cracking and termites. Authentic Mortise and Tenon Joinery is used in assembling the frames.
the SUSPENSION & WEBBING
This is the component which bears the maximum load. Chester’s uses a combination of sinuous steel springs and heavy duty imported elastic webbing. Our webbing and suspension ensures firm support and comfort that last a lifetime.
Frames are covered with many layers starting with natural jute fabrics, coir matting, felts and high resilience polyurethane foam of varying densities. This highly skilled process imparts the distinctively exquisite shape and contour of each Chester’s piece. Padded layers are fastened to the frames with steel staples and water based glues.
Finally the sofas are covered with fine leathers selected from our collection. Chester’s also is able to upholster sofas in fine fabrics on special request.
