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 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 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 five steel springs per seat to ensure the strength, comfort and durability of the foam cushion core. We will continue to use heavy duty European elastic webbing to support the back cushions. This material will hold 720 pounds of pressure per square inch. 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 - 2525 Cherry:
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 on the surface of the leather. This gives the consumer versatility in wear and use; 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. You will notice some color variation and grain variations between each piece and sometimes within the same piece. These are natural characteristics and should not be considered unusual. This leather is a beautiful buttery soft cherry red and it is undeniably unique. 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 Weston 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. The seat cushions are composed of polyurethane foam cores with a high quality Dacron topper for comfort. You will find the density of the seat 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 by computer into vertically and horizontally channeled bags. This ensures that the proper amount of Dacron is blown in the same every time.
