Matthew Hilton Balzac Chair Restoration

Posted on December 19th, 2018

The Balzac Chair was produced in a completely unsealed aniline leather called “Utah”. Unfortunately although totally beautiful when new, the wonderful leather has proved extremely susceptible to staining through absorption of body oils and other contaminants.
