Dog chewed my Chesterfield!

Posted on June 17th, 2015

What a nightmare!
You come downstairs in the morning to find a sheepish looking spaniel with a bit of leather in its mouth… Look at the state of this!

Help! Dog ate my Chesterfield!

Help! Dog ate my Chesterfield!


This sofa now requires a bit of a re-build…
The eaten foam will be carefully removed and matched, new foam will be inserted and drilled for buttoning. Old leather will be carefully removed and new russet aniline leather will be applied, folded and buttoned before being hand dyed and sealed to match the rest of the sofa. We are also going to replace the cushion tops while we’re at it.
It will be great again in a couple of weeks!

Here’s an update on progress!

Work in progress!

Here it is with the leather refinished to match…
