Chesterfield Pigmented Leather Sofa

Chesterfield Pigmented Leather Sofa

Chesterfield leathers are created by processing a secondary darker color over an existing lighter color.  A typical coloring would be black on maroon to create an aged visual appearance, especially on chesterfield design furnishing.  Other creative antiquing effects may be created by uneven application of color, e.g. patchy padding, badly fanned spraying, low-pressure spraying, etc.  The darker secondary or old English coloring is subject to rubbed off from regular use and will require a translucent color refinishing to renew its appearance.  A rub-resistant protector with a buttery feel is recommended to prolong the finish from rubbing off.

Antiquing leathers common problem is the wear out of the secondary darker coloring.


Antique color restortion is by application of Antique-27, a translucent dyestuff by random spray with an airbrush.
