Just delivered to Menominee , MI! This Julien Slope Arm Leather Sofa is impressive at 120 inches long and 42 inches in overall depth. Adding to the sense of scale is the single, long bench seat with 2 corresponding back cushions.
This Julien is dressed in Italian Brentwood Tan, a leather from the same tannery as our popular Brompton and Berkshire leathers. Brentwood stands out from the rest of the oiled and waxed pullups from this tannery in that it is the thickest cut in our selections (1.4-1.6mm thick vs. Brompton and Berkshire at 1.0-1.2mm). This doesn’t make it better, just different. The thicker cut will require more break-in and it won’t have the same “drape” that Brompton and Berkshire get with time (drape = that rumply worn-in look)
Italian Brentwood Leather is a Full Grain, Full Aniline, Oiled Pull-up leather. Full Grain means it has not been corrected (scars have not been sanded, buffed, filled and covered up) and the leather exhibits natural markings and characteristics of the hides. Full Aniline means it is dyed all the way through, and Oiled pull-up means the hides have been impregnated with oils. These oils act as this leather’s barrier against the world, resisting moisture and keeping the leather both supple and strong. This leather will scratch and mark and just get better as you beat it up, burnishing and developing a beautiful vintage patina over time!
When checking out our Julien, keep in mind that there are two arms available:
Slope Arm: shown here, the arm slopes down from the back, with a slight rise again before reaching the front of the sofa
Track Arm: the arm slopes from the back to a flat horizontal plane all the way to the front of the sofa
