This beautiful "Essex Furniture 'Diplomat' Style" three piece suite has been re-upholstered this week in a "Cristina Marrone" best quality flame retardant linen. The three seater sofa and two chairs feature a very distinctive design, which this choice of fabric helps to enhance.
The subtle, plain colour of the fabric really sets off the unusual shape and detailing of the buttoned arms and wraparound seat back. The large, shaped cushions make the suite very comfortable and look so inviting. The texture of this linen fabric adds greatly to the overall feel of the furniture, which has been restored to "as new" condition in our workshop.
For the greatest comfort and longevity, we replaced the existing seat cushion interiors with best quality flame retardant "Reflex" interiors, which carry a ten-year guarantee. These were wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life. We also replaced existing back cushion interiors with turnable best quality flame retardant "Fibre-fill" cushions. All three pieces were totally stripped back to the frame and all interiors (i.e. backs, arms and seats) completely replaced using best quality flame retardant interiors to ensure the suite was restored to "as new" condition. Lastly, the suite was finished with a rolled edge.
We also made a set of armcaps to protect the arms of the suite.
