Sinuous Coil Springs

S-springs are made from two-dimensional S-shaped wires and are also known as “no-Sag springs”, “zigzag wire” or “zigzag springs”. They are fastened to the frame with clips and no-sag nails and are spaced every few inches apart from front-to-back or top-to-bottom on custom seats, backs, etc.

Feather Down

Feathers – It is a two dimensional structure and ideal for use as support in everything from bedding to cushions.
Down – It is structurally different to feathers and used for different purposes. It is three dimensional and does not have shaft, instead it is made up of a cluster of fibres stemming from a central point. Down is the best natural insulator.
We typically use a blend of 25% down and 75% feathers in our products and are the ultimate in luxury and comfort.

Foam

Our foam used meets the standards for content, emissions and durability and has been analysed by independent, accredited testing laboratories.
The most important properties of foam are Density & Firmness:
Density – determined by how much a piece of foam weighs.
Firmness – The sit test or what is your firmness preference.
We choose different foam densities depending on the design of the furniture as well as the customer’s preference.
There are 3 general options – Soft, Medium or Firm.
The foam is also used with a combination of other materials like chip foam & eco fibre to ensure 100% customer satisfaction

Leather

Our leather range includes Cow, Kudu and Oryx (Gemsbok).Our leather range includes Cow, Kudu and Oryx (Gemsbok).

Types

Full Aniline Leather:
This leather has only been dyed in a drum and has no pigmentation on top. It has a protective wax or scotchgard layer. Its appearance is very natural and alive, but with less colour and stain resistance than semi-aniline leather. This leather is not recommended for a room with direct sunlight.

Semi-aniline Leather:
This leather has been drum dyed, but has a very thin pigmentation layer on top as well as a silicone scotchgard layer. Semi-aniline leather has lost a bit of its liveliness and natural character, but is very colour and stain resistant. This leather has the best longevity of all leather types and is recommended for areas with direct sunlight or heavy wear and tear.

 Oil Pull-up Leather:
This leather has been dyed in a drum, but the oils and waxes have been mixed with extra pigmentation and applied on top. Over time this gives the leather a beautiful colour variation. This leather is however the least colour resistant of all types of leather and is not recommended if the furniture will be exposed to direct sunlight or heavy wear and tear.Buffed Leather:The leather has gone through exactly the same process as full-grain full aniline leather, but has afterwards received a slight buffing (like sanding it down with sandpaper) to provide it with an even more natural and rugged look. This effects the stain resistance of the leather as it loses some of its resistance to fluids during the process.

Nubuck / Suede Leather:
This leather has been dyed in a drum and has no pigmentation or scotchgard layer on top. It has a very earthy and natural appearance, but has very little stain resistance. It has to be scotchgarded regularly. Nubuck/Suede leather is not recommended for furniture that will need to endure heavy traffic.

Fabric Canvas

We use fabric canvas for the upholstery of our outdoor furniture range. The canvas waterproof features a plastic PVC backing with a waterproof coating, making it extremely durable and resilient. The fabric also has mold and UV resistance qualities.
Different types and colours are available to choose from.
We also invite designers to provide their own fabrics and will quote you on CMT (Cut, Measure and Trim) prices.

The Frame

A well-built sofa starts with a good frame. Our frames are constructed from solid, dried timber preventing warping and cracking over time.
Our frames are also constructed in manner to make sure the joints are solid so that the frame is strong and stable with corners glued, double-doweled, and reinforced with blocking and a centre support bracket.
