Nevner man Chesterfield for noen så kan alle umiddelbart se for seg hva man snakker om. De Vakre møblene med det karakteristiske utseendet som har gitt de ikonisk status.
I motsetning til hva mange tror så er ikke Chesterfield et varemerke, men i utgangspunktet heller en beskrivelse av dypt knappestoppede møbler laget etter gammel engelsk tradisjon .
Dette har dessverre medført at det opp gjennom årene har kommet mange kopier masseprodusert i lavkost land, ofte Asia, som overhodet ikke holder den kvalitet, finish og ekslusivitet man bør forvente av denne typen møbler.
Hos vår Samarbeidspartner Springvale ltd er derimot de gamle tradisjonene holdt i hevd slik at alle deres møbler produseres etter teknikker nedarvet i generasjoner av håndverkere med dyp respekt for deres arbeide.
Frames are supremely important because they form the foundation on which everything else depends. Solid hardwood beech frames are built with joints that have been screwed, glued and doweled for maximum strength and reliability. (in a few instances, where strength is not an issue, some 13mm plywood and other types of board are also used solely to give shape or for tacking off to hold the cover in place)
Springvale occasional chairs and office chairs are also built from solid hardwood and polished to the colour of your choice: eg. Mahogany, Yew or Oak
Springs & Suspension
Springs and suspension are further vital elements in furniture construction.
Springvale seat platforms are fully sprung with double tempered no-sag springs which are all supported and linked together with silent wire to create a suspension system which gives longer-lasting strength and durability.
In Chesterfield suites the back springs are also linked together in the same way to give extra strength and comfort. Coil sprung units are also available on certain models
Only the highest quality foam and fibre fillings are used. Seat cushions are state-of-the-art foams, which combine fire-resistance with a sumptuous feel to give exceptional comfort with strength and durability. These foams are known as reflex foams. Because reflex foams are so versatile you can choose the type of seat support which you prefer:
- Super soft ( yellow foam )
- Soft to medium ( pink foam )
- Medium to firm ( grey foam )
- Very firm ( green foam )
and for that loose floppy look we can combine foams with fibre to create
your own perfect choice
Castors & Bun Feet
Springvale offer a selection of feet for most ranges. Only top quality castors and glides are used as an alternative choice to hardwood. Wooden feet can be polished to customers choice of colour: eg. Mahogany, Yew and Oak
The choice and preparation of hides is the most visible factor in leather furniture. Springvale use natural cowhides because they provide the finest fibre structure and strength. They are also more supple and versatile. A maximum thickness of 1 to 1.3mm is ideal - any thicker makes it difficult to work with and almost impossible to deep button; any thinner and strength and the required 'feel' is lost.
