The seat cushion is handcrafted beginning with a Marshall coil spring unit inside the center of the foam core. The foam core is high resiliency 1.8 density polyurethane foam. An additional 1″ thick foam is layered on top providing additional cushion crown. The cushion is then inserted into a channeled down proof cover that is filled with Dacron fibers. The Dacron fibers add comfortable softness without flattening out over time. This is a cushioin that will be enjoyed for the life of the furniture.
Like the seat cushions, all backs are constructed according to the unique style of the piece of furniture. Some backs will require hand tied coiled springs, some use Marshall Coil spring units, these are referred to as “tight backs” as they are built into the backrest. Other styles will have bustle, semi- attached, or loose cushion backs. All are hand constructed by craftsmen to ensure a level of comfort that will meet or exceed the demands of our customers. Each is hand cut, filled, weighed and sewn with generous amounts of Dacron polyester fiber into channeled bags (to prevent drift), which are then inserted into zippered leather casings. All of this attention to detail results in the most comfortable and durable seat possible!
CUSHION FOAM and CHEMICALS
Recent regulatory changes in California and media attention has prompted a number of customers to inquire about the chemicals used in furniture. The primary interest revolves around flame retardant chemicals in the polyurethane foam used in furniture. Classic Leather has removed all flame retardant chemicals from their polyurethane foam as of August 2012. Chemicals that were of particular concern were TDCPP, TDCEP, TDCP, and Penta Bromine’s. These chemicals haven’t been used by Classic Leather for a number of years.
