Yes, the covers are individually tailored and can be completely removed or replaced. SPNS customers from years past will have their sofas re-covered, changing from fabric to leather, moving to a new seasonal look or perhaps just for a general refresh. The furniture is still as comfortable as the day they bought it. Re-covering makes a change and the furniture is just like new.
Absolutely! You need flexibility in your furniture. Friends come and stay. Your needs change. What is comfortable for one person doesn’t suit another. Or you’d simply like to rearrange the whole look of the room. SPNS designs were created specifically to provide the flexibility you’re looking for.
The engineered steel frame provides the base. Then SPNS’s sofa options step in. You may prefer the modular flexibility of the Delta II, the cushioned comfort and flexibility of Concerto or the rearrangement possibilities of the Jasper. Some models even include clever hidden storage compartments.
And when you rearrange SPNS sofas, they never look ‘unfinished’ because SPNS sofas were designed from the ground up to be infinitely flexible.
Not all leathers are the same and it can be difficult to tell at first glance whether the leather used is high quality or not. Some leather is corrected or split leather where the natural character has been removed. On some leathers, marks are covered up with plastic filler and pigment pain, which can crack.
All SPNS leathers are genuine, top quality European leathers. The colours are tanned into the full thickness of the leather so, with proper care, your SPNS sofa or chair will last a lifetime.
Here is more information on how you can identify your leather:
This leather is the most natural looking of all leathers. Actual surface grain and markings are always present and indicate genuine leather character. These leathers have very little or no protective treatments applied. Aniline leather provides maximum comfort and is luxurious to the touch. Slight colour variance and natural characteristics such as scars, folds or horn injuries are not quality defects – they are markers of top quality leather.
This group of leathers has corrected grain where the top surface of the hide is buffed, like a sanding process to remove most imperfections. A new ‘grain pattern’ is then stamped onto the prepared surface. A uniform colour is achieved through the application of numerous layers of pigment.
The leathers start as aniline but are then brushed or sanded to create a velvet-like texture. The brushing opens up the surface creating the soft texture that also makes it more absorbent and susceptible to external wear-and-tear than other types of leather. Nubuck is not to be confused with suede which is the underside of the hide.
Suede is aniline leather – the underside of the hide. The surface is brushed to create a beautiful, soft, absorbent, surface texture. This treatment, whilst creating a luxurious effect, means most prone of all leathers to external wear and tear.
Of course. SPNS offers an unconditional, written, 25-year warranty guarantee on the steel frame along with pro-rata guarantees on other parts and finishes.
