Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This sofa was made from hand carved solid walnut and it has been reupholstered in sumptuous chestnut leather.
The intricate hand carved floral decoration of the solid walnut was the work of a master craftsman and we have cleaned and polished the walnut to highlight the carving.
It has been reupholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued, the beautiful antique patina is achieved by the special walnut based stains that we use in the process.
The studding is achieved with close individual studs not by using strips, and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.
In excellent condition having been beautifully restored and reupholstered in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.

The Walnut woods are probably the most recognisable and popular of all the exotic woods, having been used in furniture making for many centuries. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
