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.
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. While this does not completely eliminate these, it slows down this process considerably.
