Shuttled down deep into the Florida Keys, this Braxton was built with cushion option 2, in the 43″ depth and dressed in Full Grain Italian Berkshire Leather (Burlap is the color)
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.

One of our customers in Raleigh North Carolina recently received this beauty! They opted for our 43 inch depth option with no ears and selected Italian Berkshire Chestnut as the leather.
These are great photos of Berkshire Chestnut when it is just been pulled from a stack of hides, cut and upholstered. Berkshire is Full Aniline leather, so the color of these hides range from darker to lighter from batch to batch. When brand new, the color of Berkshire Chestnut is at it’s deepest and most intense, but even as it travels on the way to you the color will mellow a bit and it will continue to do so as you use the furniture.
The Braxton Sofa Chaise sectional can be made with the chaise on either side, but we do offer a variety of Braxton Sectionals that can be made in any configuration you can imagine.

Dressed in one of our team’s favorite leathers, Italian Berkshire Cocoa, this Braxton Corner Sectional measures in at 105″L x 105″L x 43″D and was made in Cushion Option 1 without Ears ( see image below about ears 🙂
Berkshire Cocoa is a very natural leather, un-corrected and aniline dyed, with color variation, natural markings and scars present. This soft, matte finish leather scratches, marks and distresses, developing an amazing natural patina that can only be earned with time and use.
Adding the matching storage ottoman provides some added functionality in a small, beautiful package (see image further down).

Customers love our Arizona, and it’s easy to see why. All of the same great specs we use in all of our furniture, but the Arizona features tufted seat cushions. The tufting makes the seats just a bit firmer than our non-tufted models, but the Arizona still has loads of feather and down comfort in both the seats and backs.
The cover chosen by this customer was Italian Berkshire Cocoa Leather. This leather is just like our Italian Brompton Cocoa (made in the same Italian tannery, using the same hides), but without the extra step of wax impregnation that makes Brompton shiny. Berkshire has a more matte finish, and as it scratches, distresses, and burnishes it will develop loads of character over time. Natural markings, scars and color variation are all a very real, natural characteristic of these full grain (un-corrected) leather hides.

It was great working with this customer in Iowa to select her perfect combo; a Braxton Leather Sofa paired with a matching Braxton Leather Storage Ottoman, all dressed in beautiful Italian Berkshire Chestnut leather.
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 🙂
