8ft Braxton Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Pewter Leather – 43 inch depth
This Braxton Twin Cushion in Berkshire Pewter Italian Leather headed to Portland, Oregon recently. Berkshire Leather is a cousin of our popular Brompton Leather, just without the extra wax impregnation that gives Brompton it’s shine. Berkshire could be thought of as a matter version of Brompton, made from the same European hides at the same Italian tannery. These leathers are finished with Oil and Soft Waxes, then slightly polished and milled for an authentic vintage leather look.
90 inch Braxton Leather Sofa in Brompton Cocoa Leather – 43 inch depth – LAF Side Angle View
This beautiful Braxton Italian Leather Sofa in Brompton Cocoa was recently delivered to a customer in Cincinnati, Ohio. Brompton Cocoa is a Full Grain, Full Aniline Leather made from European hides with celebrated natural scars and markings. It’s been a top leather with us for years and as it distresses over time it develops a rich patina with a ton of character.
There are several different types of suspensions used in the construction of leather furniture. We’d like to cover some of the most common for you here:
8 Way Hand-Tied Coil Suspension - Before being tied
8-way Coil Suspension refers to a drop in coil unit with a comfortable yet supportive feel. This suspension type minimizes the load on the frame.
Sinuous Spring Suspension is comprised of S-shaped wires also known as “S coils”, which are fastened with clips and nails to the frame. These “S coils” are aligned every few inches from front to back under the seat cushion, or top to bottom under the seatbacks. This is a durable suspension that provides a somewhat firmer support for your leather furniture.
Pocketed coils are inside the bottom seat cushions of some of our leather furniture. These are pocketed coil units, or “marshall” coil units. Each coil is encased in high density, specially designed fabric which is ultrasonically welded to the other encased coils in the unit. These units are used in the seat cushions of our flagship products in addition to 8-way or S coil suspension to enhance support and stability.
