THE PALMERSTON CHESTERFIELD SOFA

British Prime Minister 1754-1756 & 1757-1762

 

This is a hand dyed Manner 1 (scroll down for more information on our crafting styles) crafted piece. It has taken approximately 90 hours of one man’s time to make this stunning piece of 18th century influenced art. The heavily splayed fully coil sprung arms are inviting, almost pleading to be nestled in to. The 3rd generation, solid beechwood frame guarantees it to last for a lifetime. Add to that the fully hand tied coil sprung seat, arms and back, horse tail and ginger fibre fillings and you have the finest piece of furniture craftsmanship ever known. A completely natural way of making furniture with no shortcuts at all.

 

The sofa was paired up with this stunning hand dyed deep wine Wilmington and the pair were so complimentary of one another. Both Manner 1, it was quite a simply the most stunning siblings ever seen…

 

You will see many Chesterfield still circulating today in excess of 100-years-old, and the reason behind that is the crafting… our Manner 1 pieces are complete replicas of these historical antiques and it’s this charming delivery that makes them the envy of all other sofas. Perfect, quality.

Crafting Manner 1

Crafting 1 Diagram

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. This helps the build stay strong and never lose it's shapes.

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 Tenon Jointed frame sits on our beautiful hand turned Walnut legs

Our Manner 1 also comes with the finest hand dyed British leather or an alternative pre-dyed leather or fabric of your choice.*

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

Crafting Manner 2

Our Manner 2 is almost identical to our Manner 1 but not fully band tracked. In this instance we hand tack the seat and outside leathers.

The seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung. With 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs. This helps the build stay strong and never lose it's shape.

Only using natural materials, the fillings consist of horse tail and coconut fibre before being lined with lambswool.

The solid beechwood tenon jointed frame sits on our beautiful hand turned Oak legs.

Our Manner 2 also comes with the finest hand dyed leather or an alternative or an alternative pre-dyed leather or fabric of your choice.*

Our Manner 2 is amongst the world's finest hand crafted furniture and takes up to a month to craft.

Crafting Manner 3

Crafting 3 Diagram

Our Manner 3 option is a blend between the traditionally crafted 19th century pieces, and an ever so slightly modern approach.

Just like our Manner 2, the seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung using 8 point and tied loose coil steel springs.

The key difference between our Manner 2 and 3 is that we use a rubberised hair and loose horse hair to fill. We will also staple the fixings in place of the hand tacked technique. However we do still hand tack the outer leathers.

He beechwood frame is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.*

Our Manner 3 option remains one of the finest crafted pieces of furniture.

Crafting Manner 4

Our Manner 4 offers two options which offer key elements of the various approaches to traditional craftsmanship.

Option 1

The seat is fully loose coil sprung using 8-point hand tied loose coil steel springs, however the back and arms are not. We then use a rubberised hair and loose horse hair to fill.

Option 2

The seat, back and arms are completely loose coil sprung using 8 point hand tied loose coil steel springs. We use a medium density foam and line the inside with pure cotton felt.

We will also staple the fixings in place of the hand tacked technique. However we do not still hand tack the outer leathers..*

The beechwood frame for both options is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with a hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.*

Manner 4 is a great option to blend the elements of the more traditional crafting techniques.

Crafting Manner 5

Crafting 5 Diagram

Our Manner 5 option is the slightly modern approach to traditional craftsmanship.

The seat is fully loose coil sprung using 8-point hand tied loose coil steel springs (not to be confused with the 'sprung units'), however the back and arms are not.

We use a medium density foam and line the inside with our cotton felt.

The beechwood frame is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with hand dyed Italian/Scandinavian leather or a pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice.*

Manner 5 is our modern approach to crafting yet still un-paralleled in terms of the high street of specialists.

Crafting Manner 6

Our crafting 6 is certainly our most modern crating option.

The seat is either webbed or we use serpentine springs. Fillings are a very good medium density foam and line the inside with cotton felts.

The beechwood frame is dowelled, glued and screwed and sits on hand turned beechwood feet.

This option comes with pre dyed leather/fabric of your choice (fabric up to £40/m).
