The wooden frame on this collection is composed of Beechwood and European Spruce in all load bearing areas and MDF in all non load bearing areas. These woods are selected at source and seasoned for a minimum of 2 years to ensure long term durability. All of the corners and load bearing areas of our frames are additionally secured with heavy duty corner blocks to add to the strength and durability of the frame. Upon completion of the construction of the frame, we encase the entire structure. This process ensures the strength and integrity of the frame. We the put one inch of foam around the frame before upholstery so that when you touch the sides and backs you notice a firm/soft sensation not four inches of play between the leather and frame as you would find with most of our competitors.
We incorporate in our suspension unit, heavy duty nine gauge sinuous steel. These S shaped steel springs are fastened to the top and front rail and run from front to back of the piece 2 inches apart.These springs are attached to the frame by using heavy duty clips. Two steel rods are used to hold the springs in place which offers additional durability to the seating area, both on the front and the back of each individual seat. We also attach a canvas barrier between the foam and the steel springs.This does not allow the foam to wear. We use 5 steel springs per seat to ensure the strength, comfort and durability of the foam cushion core. In addition; we use two solid wooden stretchers that run front to back to stabilize and strengthen the frame against the tension of the steel sinuous springs. This adds to the strength of the frame itself.
Leather - 2511 Havana:
The leather on this collection is semi aniline. This means that the leather is colored thru and thru and does possess a light protective coat of polyurethane finish on the surface of the leather. This gives the consumer versatility in wear and use. The most common household stains can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth and mild soap if addressed within minutes of the spill, spot or stain. Please notice how the color moves throughout this leather. You will see dark tones and light tones all over the furniture. These are characteristics of high quality leather. This effect is called sauvage Genuine Italian leather may vary slightly in color, shade and tone. This is a hallmark of genuine italian leather.
Cushions & Seating:
We use a POCKET SPRING seat cushion in the seat of the Andrew group. The pocket spring system is created by turning high tensile steel individual springs, which are then wrapped in their own singular pocket of fabric. You will find that each individual seat cushion contains a matrix of individually wrapped coil springs encased in a specifically designed foam shell that is covered in Dacron fiber. The system has many benefits. The fabric pocket used allows each spring to slide up and down independently of it s neighbors allowing for maximum comfort for more than one person on the sofa. The ultra high coil density allows maximum conformity to body contours. The POCKET SPRING system will allow each seat cushion to keep its uniformity over the life of the furniture. You will find the seat cushions to be loose which adds to the versatility of the frame.The seating components of the Andrew Group are composed of DOWN, DACRON AND FOAM BLEND. We wanted to offer a collection with a different story and comfort level. You will find that the comfort of this collection will be like none other. The seating will be slightly more firm but soft and very, very comfortable. The cushions; both seat and back are welted beautifully and have a very clean and artistic look and feel.
