Outstanding seating comfort is just one of the qualities that make for a genuine Wittmann. Alongside good design, delivering the perfect seating experience is the key objective of our painstaking development work. We employ handmade metal or solid wood frames. Traditional, meticulous upholstering and use of the finest materials assure longevity. The carefully constructed sub-upholstery is made up of elastic webbing or
sinuous springs, to which multiple layers of foam are added (often with a sprung core). This multilayered construction, comprising foam with different degrees of compression hardness and density, creates a top-class interior that will retain its superior quality for many years to come. All of the foams used in our products are CFC and health risk free.
One of the key requirements when developing our upholstered furniture is that users should feel as though they are sitting in the piece, and not merely on it. All the materials are carefully matched to provide unique seating comfort that will endure for many years. The harder a piece of furniture is used, the more any piece of furniture will show signs of wear and tear as time goes by. The emergence of creases on the seat and backrest is inevitable and does not constitute grounds for complaint. Certain functions – such as adjusting the positions
of a recliner – tretch the cover. All our models are designed and developed with great care. The form – that is, the design – of a piece usually dictates its appearance. And it may well be because of the design that you opted for a Wittmann, and were drawn to a given model. But there is more to the design than the shape. It also includes the distinctive stitching, the creases that come from the use of large pieces of leather or fabric, or a deliberately informal look.
Here you can find further information regarding care of fabrics and leather.
Depending on the model, we use high-quality Teflon, felt or plastic gliders. All of our chairs come fitted with rubber layered Teflon gliders as standard because of the particularly heavy wear that these items cause. Teflon is suitable for both hard flooring and carpets. The gliders are quiet, slide well and are highly durable.
However, we still recommend checking all gliders regularly and replacing them if necessary. Remember to check the abrasion resistance of your flooring! Replacement gliders are available from your local Wittmann dealer.
Loose Cushions on upholstered furnishings
Soft, loose seat and backrest cushions should be plumped regularly to ensure that the filling is distributed evenly and prevent lumps from forming. This also preserves the springiness of your cushions.
