4 - In the next phase the sofa is closed again, and therefore the intervention phase on the interior ends. Let's finally settle the stability of the sofa by applying hand-polished wooden feet.

5 - Leather cleaning operations begin with specific detergents suitable for Chesterfield sofas, operations that are calibrated to remove any imperfection and at the same time respect the delicacy of the leather.

6 - Finally the final finishing touches that bring the sofa back to the splendor of the past: we perform the coating and waxing, using dyes that bring it back to their original state and a neutral balm to restore the shine and the peculiar scent of the leather.
