The Indigo Build Handcrafted Leather Sofas
Distinct leather Sofas and Armchairs crafted in Indigo’s own workshops.
Indigo Furniture presents an inspired collection of handcrafted leather sofas and armchairs. Defined by bold style lines, ultra tactile 21 day heritage finish leather and kiln-dried hardwood frames; designed to provide a strong aesthetic yet with comfort and luxury at their heart.
Drawing upon the collective experience of time-served cabinet makers to build the frame, leather cutters, seamstresses, upholsters and finishers. Each frame is expertly built, hand finished and upholstered with sumptuous fillings, completed with bespoke solid wood hardwood feet.
Read on to discover more about the artisanal skill behind the Indigo build and why each piece is sealed with the renowned Indigo 10 Year Guarantee.
Craftsmen use traditional techniques alongside cutting edge technology to ensure unrivaled comfort and build quality in the creation of handcrafted leather sofas. Staunch and unyielding hardwood frames are precision cut, fixed, glued and hand finished; providing the framework for tensile woven webbing; a foundation for upholstery for over 250 years.
This steadfast frame is then finished with layer upon layer of luxurious fillings – a foam foundation provides the base structure topped with soft, giving fibres which ensure a relaxed yet supporting sit and a maintained shape which will only require plumping from time to time.
Double stitching lends texture and strength to seams; Indigo’s signature 21 day process heritage inspired leathers in either Aged Saddle or Conker Saddle finish the piece, crafted to develop a unique patina in your home.
INDIGO’S OWN HANDCRAFTED LEATHER SOFA WORKSHOP
To ensure continuity and longevity of Indigo products each sofa, armchair and footstool is made in our own workshops. Each stage of the make and build process is overseen and finally signed off by the hand finisher and given the Indigo Ten Year Guarantee.
Indigo handcrafted leather sofas and armchairs are sent with a swatch of the actual leather it was upholstered with – so we can match the shade and hue as closely as possible if you wish to make a purchase in the future. This is a sizeable swatch of around 8″ and can be found underneath the base cushions of your Sofa.
“It’s paramount to Indigo that our handcrafted leather sofas exceed expectation. By making each one in our own workshops we know that quality and comfort is at the foremost of each piece crafted. The Indigo Ten Year Guarantee carried by all leather sofas and armchairs is testament to the passion and knowledge my team and I put into each piece made.”
