Stunning example of an English made Leather Sofa by Connolly Leather from the mid century This particular sofa is very high quality example of Mid Century furniture. It is made by Connolly leather company who are renowned for making high end leather items. They used to make the leather for high end car brands of Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce. And also rumoured that they made the leather benches for the House of Parliament. So with an impressive history it makes this a very nice original item with very strong providence. The sofa has very nice Chesterfield style with button back cushions. The colour of the leather looks black but under close inspection it’s a very dark brown. The shape of the sofa is very similar to a parker knoll eggs sofa and has a very striking teak edging frame. A very heavy item and comfortable to sit in.
The sofa has been cleaned down and the leather has been and rubbed in a leather care cream polish. The sofa fabric is in very good condition with two small repairs. (One on arm and one cushion,both shown in the pictures) very nice supple soft leather that’s great quality and condition. There are wear marks and some rub points but this adds to the character of the item. The Foam and cushions are all in very nice shape and the sofa doesn’t feel worn when sat in. The teak edging has been re polished and overall the sofa is a 8 out of 10. It’s very hard to find mid Century leather sofas let alone in this great condition and quality.
