We welcome the combination of different leather colors within a sofa set. From the design stand point, we recommend no more than 3 leather colors within a sofa set.

 

´òÓ¡

Size Alteration

Sizes of a sofa, such as, seat width, seat depth, seat height, back height can be altered, within certain limitations, to fit your personalized preference.

Alteration surcharges will apply, and please ask our team for details.

Since sofa is a kind of soft upholstery product, please kindly allow the size tolerance within +/- 3cm.

 

´òÓ¡

Choice of Different Sofa Legs

For selected sofa models only, there are possibilities of changing different style of legs based on the limited options that are provided.

 

´òÓ¡

Choice of Different Wooden Leg Colors

In KELVIN GIORMANI, we have 6 standard colors of wooden legs, namely, Wenge Color (no. 219), Beech Color (no. 019), Cherry Wood Color (no. C02), Dark Walnut Color (no. W01), Solid Black Color (no. R05) and Silver Gray Color (no. 210).

Besides stitching types, you can choose to contract colors on 4 stitching types, namely, Single Stitching (regular), Single Stitching (fine), Double Stitching and Leather Piping Cord.

 

´òÓ¡

Seat Softness Adjustment

In KELVIN GIORMANI, we rate our sofa seat softness from Level 1 to Level 7. The higher it is the Level, the softer it is the sofa seat.

Please note that there is no absolute standard for each Seat Softness Level. In other words, due to the design and structure variance on different sofa models, you might feel slight difference of seat softness for different models even when they have the same Seat Softness Level. The purpose of this rating level system is mainly to let us have a better reference of how you prefer to harden or soften your sofa’s seat comfort from the standard of a particular sofa model.

Also, we don’t recommend this adjustment goes up or down more than 2 levels because that will significantly affect other aspects of seating, such as, feeling of seat height, seat and back pitch, lumber support, etc.

 

´òÓ¡

Personalizing Leather-crafting Features

In KELVIN GIORMANI, we believe that beautiful leather-crafting features, such as, weaving, perforation, special pattern stitching and folding effect, etc., should not only be found in fashion goods like hand bags, shoes or clothings. Personalize your KELVIN GIORMANI sofa sets with a fashionable leather-crafting feature in your preferred leather surface areas.

 

´òÓ¡

Adding Seat-sliding or Head Mechanisms

For selected sofa models only, there are possibilities of adding seat-sliding or head mechanisms to enhance the comfort of the models. Both mechanisms are constructed with key parts that are made in Germany by reputable companies.

 


Leather Stories

Quality Assurance by Name Brand European Tanneries

Why do quality oriented sofa makers always work with European name brand tanneries?

After genuine cow hides have been processed, even professionals sometimes can’t accurately classify the quality standard with bare hands. Also, not all European tanneries are certified by international quality assessment institutions. In order to ensure the quality of leather used, KELVIN GIORMANI always remains quality supply from Mastrotto Italia (of Gruppo Mastrotto spa), Peretti Gruppo and HELLER-LEDER GmbH & Co. KG.

Stories of Genuine Leather

Leather is a natural material. To give sofa users the natural touch of leather , KELVIN GIORMANI always reminds our Italian tanneries to minimize any unnecessary surface correction and chemical process onto a piece of cow hide. As a result, Kelvin Giormani preserve also the natural characteristics which can only be found on genuine leather, such as, healed scars, natural veins and neck marks, natural variance on colors and grains. Kelvin Giormani loves to feel the naturalness of genuine leather sofas, and they also appreciate everything that comes together with natural leather

 


Kelvin Giormani Leather Categories

 1_Orvieto

ORVIETO

Made by the Italian international tannery group, the Gruppo Mastrotto spa, in Asia or South America.

Tannery: Gruppo Mastrotto spa

 

Top grain leather with strong fibers resistant to tears comparing with splits or fabrics. It breathes naturally and regulates temperature when it absorbs and releases humidity through natural pores which cannot be found in splits or artificial leather.

Appearance: Matt

Thickness: 1.3-1.5mm

 

Corrected meaning that the leather has been sanded (or buffed) to reduce the visibility of natural markings of raw hides.

Pigmented (dyed) with protected color-finishing on leather surfaces that serves to waterproof and ensures color consistency as well as high durability. It will just slightly fade under long sunlight exposure and is very well protected against normal household stains.

Embossed with Dollaro Americano Print creates uniform appearance and greater texture on the leather surface. Embossing is a process that re-creates the leather surface pattern and makes it smoother as well as softer by dry milling. Our embossing process preserves the natural elegance and the feel of premium leather.

Most popularly-used leather category for high-end contemporary sofas.

 

2_Euro Soft

EURO SOFT

Made in Italy with primarily South American raw hides.

Tannery: Gruppo Peretti Italy

 

Top grain leather with strong fibers resistant to tears comparing with splits or fabrics. It breathes naturally and regulates temperature when it absorbs and releases humidity through natural pores which cannot be found in splits or artificial leather.

Appearance: Matt

Thickness: 1.2-1.4mm

 

Semi-corrected meaning that the leather has just been slighted buffed to try to keep its natural characteristics. This type of process is sometimes referred to as “half grain,” or “mezzo fiore.” This means that there has been some buffing (correction) on the hides, hence the follicle is not as evident as before but the mechanical friction of the buffing process is not as strong as to strip most of the characteristics and strength of the natural leather.

Slightly pigmented (dyed) with protected color-finishing on the leather surface that serves to waterproof and ensures color consistency as well as high durability. The pigmentation of this leather is done with a very thin, yet, reliable and resistant layer of high quality pigment to try to preserve as much as possible the naturalness of the leather. It will just slightly fade under long sunlight exposure and is well protected against normal household stains.

No embossing has been applied and the grain seen on the leather surface comes naturally and with variation within a hide. Without embossing, by just applying a simple milling process, the natural softness of the leather can be better preserved.

It’s perfect for users who want as much as possible the luxury flair and the natural touch of leather but try to minimize the effort of maintaining genuine leather.

 

SPESSO

Made in Italy with primarily South American raw hides.

Tannery: JBS Italy

Appearance: Semi glossy with silky hand.

Thickness: 1.3-1.5mm.

 

Semi-corrected meaning that the leather has just been slighted buffed to try to keep its natural characteristics. This type of process is sometimes referred to as “half grain,” or “mezzo fiore.” This means that there has been some buffing (correction) on the hides, hence the follicle is not as evident as before but the mechanical friction of the buffing process is not as strong as to strip most of the characteristics and strength of the natural leather.

Semi-aniline based leather which is colored with a transparent dye containing aniline (as a result, color variation within a hide can happen). Aniline is a colorless liquid that helps to open pores of the leather. Aniline leather has very limited amount of chemicals being applied which makes it the softest and finest upholstery leather.

No embossing has been applied and the grain seen on the leather surface comes naturally and with variation within a hide. Without embossing, by just applying a simple milling process, the natural softness of the leather can be better preserved.

This type of leather is at the top of the leather collection as a sofa being made with this leather literally lives with the owner and increases its softness with usage and time.
