Seats and Finishes

Acres Farm has 7 standard or stock leathers to choose from. The fender seats may be covered in one of our stock leathers at no additional charge. Other leather colors and suedes are available by special order. We can also upholster the seats in a material that you provide (Customer's Own Material or C.O.M.). We can advise you on other suitable upholstery materials, for example, woven horsehair, which is very hard-wearing and comes in a wide range of designs and colors, as well as kilims, needlepoint, etc.

Standard seat width is 7 inches. Wider seats can be requested at an additional charge. Standard seat height is generally 18 to 20 inches.

Seats on any of our fender styles may be button tufted, but tufting is required on our Bow Front and Straight Curved Front Styles.

Seat Guards can be fitted to the inside edges of the seats to protect the upholstery from the heat of the fire. They are fitted as standard on all Straight Styles, but are especially recommended on seats not covered in leather, or positioned particularly close to the fire.

Seats are finished with nail heads or studs which are available in a variety of finishes to complement your fender.

Protection and Surface Finish

Brass fenders are highly polished after manufacture. If not lacquered or regularly polished, brass will darken naturally over time. Fenders need to be polished regularly if they are to remain bright.

To avoid the need to polish, we can protect the finish with a clear lacquer which is sprayed on and then oven-baked at a very high temperature. This gives a long-lasting finish, but needs to be treated with care as it is susceptible to damage from steel heels, for example. Brushed steel will never tarnish, and our satin black finish on steel fenders is oven-baked.

A further alternative on Brass Fenders is a Bronze finish. Besides satin black, we can paint a steel fender in any color--dark reds and greens being the most frequently requested.
