Punchbag Collection

This is our Punchbag leather collection. We understand that open grain aniline hides are not suitable for all, so we’ve scoured tanneries far and wide to bring you a leather that’s suitably family friendly while still holding as much of a soft waxy feel as possible.
Using a special tanning process the punchbag range is able to provide all the attributes of a semi-aniline leather but with the durability of a pigmented hide. The end result is a best-of-both ‘bombproof’ leather, perfect for family life.

Silken Collection

A beautifully soft, distressed leather available in a range of contemporary shades. A full grain aniline leather utilising the more 'characterful' hides results in a finish packed full of natural scars, marks and knicks.
The hand-finished distressing process results in an almost silk-like hand feel strokably soft and warm.

Proceed to Feet Colour >
Choose your FEET COLOUR

We currently offer three foot finishes on all of our upholstery ranges; A light, mid and a dark finish.

In most cases the Dark finish works well with most colours of leathers and fabrics. However, the Light and mid finishes are particularly good with our Willow leather or any other lighter materials.

All of our feet and made in Derbyshire from solid ash offering the very best on which your sofa will stand for many years to come.

If you require a specific foot finish, we can colour match too. For more information please contact us at sales@authenticfurniture.co.uk or call 01629 704 704.

What makes an Authentic Chesterfield?

Heritage

Each and every sofa we make is built without compromise in Long Eaton, Derbyshire which is widely regarded as the home of British upholstery and we very much agree.



Craftsmanship

All our upholsterers have served an apprenticeship to learn the skills needed to make sofas of the very highest standards, each sofa is individually buttoned and hand-tied and then signed off by our two most experienced craftsmen each with over 40 years experience.



  • Design
  • We embrace the traditional Chesterfield design and add our own twists ensuring the original classic style is enhanced and remains timeless. 

  • Time
  • There is no production line in our workshops, each sofa is handmade by one craftsman from start to finish.

  • Quality
  • All the materials we use to construct our Chesterfield sofas are the very best available – we don’t cut any corners on quality.


Comfort

We pride ourselves on how they “sit”, not everyone wants a low back so we offer high-back options such as the Florence and Mr Wallis – why not come and see us and try them out for yourself?!


Delivery & Installation Service

Returns Policy
