Of all the types of leather, this is the one that offers the best quality. It has kept the top layer of its hide intact. Thus, it is the thickest, brightest, silkiest and most resistant leather. The grain is the part of the animal’s skin where the top layer of skin, the dermis, is located, where the animal’s hair was implanted. In contrast to “top leathers” or “corrected grain” leathers, full grain leather has not undergone any treatment. Its surface is pure and raw, it has not been sanded to remove major defects. This means that each full grain leather is unique and has small characteristics that give it its charm and personality.
For the upholstery of our chairs, we use exclusively full grain sheep leather called “basane”. This is one of the best leathers on the market: it is soft and shiny, breathable, pleasant to the touch, resistant and extremely durable. We buy our leather from the Basane d’Or leather factory, located near our workshop in Toulouse. They treat their skins with vegetable tanning to guarantee their quality and longevity.

Creativity and advice
Used to working with an eclectic clientele, we know our products, but also your questions and needs. Don’t hesitate to tell us what you want, we will be able to advise you.
Patina is a subtle method of colouring leather to give it an aged, raw and more authentic appearance. It is common for leather to discolour in areas exposed to repeated contact and rubbing. Other factors that contribute to the natural wear and tear of leather include perspiration and moisture. Most often, these ageing marks are found on the armrests, backrest and seat. So when we patina leather, we are reproducing an aged effect that is usually acquired with use and the passage of time.
It is largely the patina that gives antique sofas their charm. To achieve an artificial patina, we use a colouring cream which we apply in successive layers to give subtlety, intensity or depth to selected areas of the upholstery. Patination has become a real art that gives the furniture an authentic look and cachet. We then apply a protective wax to the entire leather. The patina depends on your personal taste. Some of our customers prefer not to apply any and let time do its work.
While they are more difficult to install than standard Nozag springs, they are also much stronger and more comfortable. They offer a soft and supple seat that earned it the name “comfortable chair” in its early days. Installing bi-conical springs is a choice of tradition, but also of quality.
This is an ancestral and artisanal process which aims to transform a raw animal skin into usable leather. Conventional industries use chemical ingredients (notably chromium), which attack the skins and make them fragile. In addition, they release toxic compounds into the environment.
In contrast, vegetable tanning takes its time to produce quality. Thus, the skin is bathed in different baths to purify it, remove the layers of fat and then soften it. One step after another, the hide is transformed into a rot-proof, hot-water resistant leather, ready to last for many years. As the name suggests, vegetable tanning uses compounds based on plants such as chestnut, mimosa or oak. This natural process makes the leather hypoallergenic.
They both share a number of features; basane leather upholstery, solid wood frame and legs, inimitable seating comfort, wide armrests and the use of upholstery nails applied to the back. These are two types of high-end furniture that are extremely well known and much sought after throughout the world. Timeless armchairs with a history of prestige.
The chesterfield is distinguished primarily by its upholstered leather with large buttons on the backrest and the regular diamond-shaped armrests. The armrests also have a very sophisticated curved shape that is characteristic of the chesterfield style. Usually the armrests and backrest are at the same height. This highly refined piece of furniture requires a high level of technical expertise. Its silhouette and buttoned leather, reminiscent of a coat collar, have quickly become a symbol of social success. Its British and retro look makes it particularly sought after by large hotels and business centres, where it immediately gives an image of luxury and prestige.

an upholstery in full grain sheepskin with vegetable tanning (basane)
a solid beech frame
a back decorated with nails placed one by one
