Customer Results: Restoring a White Leather sofa

Posted on June 29, 2017

by Furniture Clinic

We recently asked you to send us photographs of your damaged furniture for your chance to win all the products that you would need to restore it! Simple.

Photos were sent to us Facebook and Twitter where we saw a range of problems including a tear in a Chesterfield arm chair, colour faded sofas and damaged leather car seats.

After carefully assessing each photograph and listing the specialist products needed to restore each item to send to the entries, we randomly selected our winner as Wanda Victores.

Wanda’s small dog had scratched the seat cushions and removed the colour from the leather on her white leather sofa.

With the help of our products, Wanda wanted to restore the leather and completely re-colour the sofa to match her recently changed décor.

She explained that she often had to apologise to her guests for the look of her sofa so she was very excited to get started.

What did we recommend that she used?
1 x
250ml Leather Binder to strengthen the leather
1 x Large Colourant Kit with custom colour
