The wooden frame on this collection is composed of beech wood and ash. These woods are selected at source and seasoned for a minimum of 2 tears 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 9 gauge sinuous spring steel. These S shaped steel springs are fastened to the top of the front rail and run from the front to the back of the piece two inches apart. These springs are attached to the frame using heavy duty clips. Two firm rods are used to hold the springs in place which offers additional durability to the sitting area, both on the front and 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 five 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 runs 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 - 3511 Bomber Tan (ALL TOP GRAIN ALL OVER):
The leather on this model is semi aniline. This means that the leather is colored thru and thru and does possess a light 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. The grain texture on this leather is DISTRESSED and ANTIQUED. This leather is designed and marketed to resemble an OLD WORLD, DISTRESSED look. You will notice some color variations and grain variations between each piece and sometimes within the same piece. These are natural characteristics and should not be considered unusual.
Cushions & Seating:
The seat cushions are composed of polyurethane foam cores with a high quality Dacron topper on the surface for comfort. The density of these cushions will vary from 2.0 to 2.3. This is a unit of measurement of the number of porous holes in the cushion. The standard quality in our industry would be 1.8. The back cushions are composed of Dacron fiber which is blown in to vertically and horizontally channeled bags. This ensures that the proper amount of Dacron is blown in the same every time. The POCKET COIL seating is also present here, as this enhanced seating comes standard in all Luke Leather products and adds years of durability to the seating.
