The Braxton Leather Sofa in Italian Berkshire Chestnut (90″ x 46″) – Perfection

Berkshire Chestnut is one of our more popular leather selections. This leather scratches easily (they blend easily too) but the accumulation of those scratches becomes part of the character as this leather burnishes and polishes, developing its patina over time. The first few scratches can be alarming, but it’s part of the process, and the end result is part of what people love about these oiled pullup leathers. Berkshire is also a full grain, which means it’s not corrected or mechanically altered and it will feature natural markings and scars, which are again part of the character. Berkshire is also Full Aniline, so all of the color is achieved by soaking and tumbling the hides in drums of translucent aniline dyes. These dyes do not paint or cover up natural color variation and markings inherent across natural leather hides, they merely lend color to the natural beauty of the hide.

Our Braxton Leather Storage Ottoman is a popular add on option for customers buying our Braxton Leather Sofas and Sectionals. Struts assist with opening the lid to reveal storage, and also slow the closing of the lid for a soft landing. Customers love to use these ottomans as coffee tables, simply placing a tray on the ottoman, and with the tray removed, the ottoman can be used to extend the sofa seating, or even independently off to the side as extra seating in a pinch.

This customer opted for the 46″ depth Braxton Leather Sofa, boasting approximately 29″ of seat depth, and with the ottoman in front of the sofa the chaise effect is hard to beat ­čÖé

Italian Berkshire Chestnut is easily one the top leathers with customers here at LeatherGroups. Full Grain leather, with natural characteristics and markings intact, telling the true story of these European Bull Hides finished in Northern Italy. Berkshire is an oiled pull-up leather, with a softer matte finish that distresses and burnishes with time.

This customer’s Arizona Leather Sofa Chaise Sectional was made with a small custom option…no tufting!┬á These feather and down filled seats and backs are built for comfort and will soften as the leather breaks in, allowing you to truly experience the feather and down conforming layer.

This Braxton Leather Sofa made its way safely to San Mateo California where the new owner is surely breaking it in!

This customer started with our 84″ Braxton, in the 46″ depth and selected our Italian Berkshire Chestnut leather. ┬áTo add another element of style, they opted for us to apply nail head trim in antique brass finish. After selecting their own specific placement for the trim, our craftsman hand applied each nail as a part of the last step of the production process.

Italian Berkshire is an interesting leather that begins it’s life essentially as Brompton, but the tannery then tumbles the hides in drums to distress and open up the hand of the leather, creating a thick, soft feel without the shine of Brompton.
