Commanding and inviting—naturally beautiful and purely Wessex. Handcrafted in America, the Wessex Collection encompasses classic Old World British style and workbench artistry. Each piece is draped in the pure comfort and rustic beauty of our hand-distressed Bronco leather and framed in rows of hand-applied nailheads. As beautiful as they are comfortable, additional styling elements include classic rolled arms and diamond-tuft backs with leather buttons.
Each Wessex piece is stocked in Bronco Whiskey, a premier leather that reflects rich shades of chocolate brown; or Bronco Iron, a premier grey leather with brown undertones.
Hand-turned legs are finished in Reclaimed Umber, reflecting the design and finish of a functional antique that has beautifully weathered the toll of time, becoming a modern relic.
The vintage look begins by aniline dying each hide to create a rich base.
Using centuries-old tanning techniques to prepare the piece for finishing, artisans hand-burnish layer upon layer of wax to achieve the patina of the leather.
The natural environment has an effect on how the hides transform from the tanning process.
Dry portions accept more wax, creating dark spots, while hydrated portions can cause the coloring to be lighter.
These markings, just like variations in wood, should be cherished and celebrated.
A final protective coat is applied by hand to help preserve the beauty of your piece.
Hand-finished in a multi-step process; each section is aniline-dyed to fully penetrate the hide.
Naturally occurring wrinkle marks, color variations and distinctive graining are characteristics of top-grain leather.
Built with benchmade craftsmanship, the frame is constructed from 1-1/4” solid hardwood and is corner blocked and double-dowelled to remain strong and stable through years of use.
Strong, durable and earth friendly, the frame is constructed entirely from wood that has been certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative.
The seat cushion is supported by a sinuous, no-sag spring system consisting of multiple rows of durable “S” shaped springs, delivering firm yet flexible comfort for years.
The seat cushion features rows of steel coils, which are interconnected by flexible steel wires to bend and move with you while delivering firm yet cozy support. Known as a Marshall Unit, each network of coils is individually pocketed in a nylon casing and completely encased in a thick layer of eco-friendly, soy-based foam to provide an added layer of comfort and softness.
The entire insert is enfolded in a sumptuous down/fiber blend that is channel stitched into down-proof ticking to create that irresistible “sink into” feel while maintaining the cushion’s shape through years of use.
For lasting comfort and support, the seat cushions feature a 2.0 density eco-friendly foam core that is partly made of plant-based materials.
Dust legs with a soft cloth and use Guardsman® Wood Polish occasionally.
Do not drag this piece(s) across the floor as this will cause damage or weaken joints.
Dropping furniture onto corners or feet will cause damage.
Toys, buckles and heels will scratch furnishings.
For OIL-BASED spills: Lift excess spill then blot with a clean, soft cloth. The oil should absorb completely into the leather.
For LIQUID-BASED spills: Blot with a clean, soft cloth; wipe spot gently with a solution of one part mild soap and 10 parts distilled water; follow by wiping the entire area around the spill with distilled water and let air dry.
