Why restore your leather sofas? There may be several different reasons; for example, it may be that your leather sofas are still in good structural condition, but have some wear and tear and damage such as scratches to the surface of the leather.  Many of our customers say that they love their worn leather sofas, but simply can’t find new ones that suit their room size, decor or that they actually like.

However, the best reason of all is cost.  A new leather suite can cost many thousands of pounds.  Restoring an existing leather sofa will cost significantly less, whilst leaving a surface essentially the same as the original factory finish, giving you many more years of use.  Contact us for more information on our professional Leather Sofa Restoration service.

Our customer had purchased a pair of well worn Leather Chesterfields from auction. Originally semi aniline, they were so worn and dried out that they were now effectively aniline.
Our brief was to carry out a sympathetic restoration, whilst sealing them to make them more child and dog friendly to maintain.

We worked with our customer to agree a new two tone colour that matched some dining chairs they had just bought.
The end result came out very well indeed. If the leather had been allowed to dry out and deteriorate for much longer, it would have gone beyond the point of no return.

Our customer asked us to deep clean her sofa. Unfortunately, what she thought was soiling, was actually worn leather, scratches etc etc

To restore the leather sofa, we stripped the affected panels down to stable surface, recoloured to existing ivory and then resealed whole sofa.
The result - many more years of use and a sofa as good as new.

This is a very common problem we see all the time. This two tone sofa is wearing unevenly - the top (dark) colour is wearing off revealing the base (light) colour. Not a great look!

We can usually restore most types of leather.  The most common leather restoration that we come across is for pigmented leather (the most common leather used for car seats and domestic leather upholstery). It generally responds extremely well to being restored.  Another, less common leather finish that we see is called aniline or semi-aniline finish.  Because the surface of aniline leather is essentially unsealed and porous, it tends to get damaged by spillages and soiling, leaving it unsightly to look at and difficult, if  not impossible to clean.

If this has happened to your aniline leather upholstery, we may be able to help with our Leather Sofa Restoration service.  The process essentially turns your aniline leather into a pigmented leather.  It will change the look and feel of it (and so we will need to discuss your expectations in some detail), but may be an option to consider rather than having to replace it.

When we initially speak with you, we will discuss and identify what type of leather you have and advise accordingly on what professional leather restoration results are achievable, based on the extent of wear and damage to your leather that is currently present. 

What Types Of Leather Sofa Can We Restore?

Most of our customers who discover our Leather Sofa Restoration service tell us that they didn’t even know it could be done.

Results of any leather sofa restoration will, of course, depend very much on the current condition.  Before we can quote, we will always need to look at some photos and even sometimes visit to inspect the items.

Can we restore any damage? No! Sometimes, the surface may simply be too worn or damaged for a repair to be worthwhile or economical.

We will always give you an honest opinion of what is achievable and what you can expect.

Our Five Step Leather Sofa Restoration Process...

Step 1. Deep Clean And Prep Surface

Before any leather restoration can take place, an essential part of any leather restoration project is the preparation. First we deep clean all surfaces and remove existing seal finish to provide the best surface to work with.

Step 2. Repair Existing Damage

There is nearly always some pre-existing damage to the surface of the leather from general use and wear and tear. Scratches, scuffs and nicks etc are inevitable. Before any colour is applied to the leather, we will repair and fill as necessary* (*results of repairs will of course vary depending upon the severity of the issue - we will discuss this with you prior to any work taking place).

Step 3. Apply New Colour

Now for the best bit! Applying the new leather surface colour. Depending upon the logistics of the area where we are working on your item, we will use a combination of methods to apply leather colour, including spray, roller and sponge.

Step 4. Apply Factory Seal

Once several coats of leather dye have been applied, it is vital that the surface is then sealed to protect the leather. The seal is identical to that originally applied at the factory. You can choose anything from matt to gloss finish.

Step 5. Customer Sign Off

Once completed, we will invite you to inspect our work and ensure that you are satisfied. Please also remember that even after we leave, you are covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee and 12 month warranty. If you are not satisfied with any part of our service, we will happily return and put things right until you are!
