This J. Robert Scott chair was in a home office in Beverly Hills. I had to “Promise” she would love our work or I would refuse to take her payment.
Needless to say, not only did she insist on paying we also did the matching chair and 9′ sofa right behind the finished chair in the picture to the right. This fading was due to an overhead skylight.
Leather only takes about 450 hours of sunlight to begin its fading process. Collectively, this is not much time at all.
There are window treatments which can cut down on the UV rays. Not completely, but slow down the process considerably.
