Floyd, I've watched cechaflo before and enjoy just the instruction without sound. Simple.
Sofadoc I agree losing a job to seam type would be virtually non-existent. The person was asking just for their own info, and I didn't want to be wrong. Mostly seam types are used for the best strength in particular apps. Though in the case of the flange that's obviously decorative.

This is confusing and interesting. First, not too worried about the black sofa. Top-stitched, flange, whatever. It's easy to convey what you want (or the customer)

The reinforced stitch on the orange chair is different. The more I research, the more apparent that it is not a French seam. Everyone calls it this, though.

French seams are inverted; the fabric (usually leather) is stitched wrong sides together. Instead of trying to explain, please google search. You will see what the finish looks like.

When buying online or over the phone, it definitely seems that they way the seller ships their product says a lot about their attitude and hence, the quality.

Gene I've not seen the box before. Have seen the roll with double plastic (thick) bags. Was it really expensive stuff?

I had someone asking me about seams.

Respectively, I called these 1)topstitched 2)reinforced or french.

With the chair, I'm not sure french seam is the correct term. Also, what did they do to get that look at the front of the seat?

Thanks Kody

I finished the chair. It annoyed me that I didn't really notice the IB side boxing has some wrinkles. Not sure what I did wrong. I used 1/4" foam and a thin layer of dacron. The foam was 1.4#, maybe I should have used some 2.4# I 'had.

Unless you have a customer that really appreciates real leather, I'd agree with you there.

That's solid advice Darren.

Here's a couple pics of what it looks like now, just needs legs.

Kody that's disgraceful that the dye came off.

I always ask for specs before I buy. If I can't have the info: double rubs, content, uv lightfastness, etc.. Then I won't buy it and will find someone else who is on the up & up.

There are also different grades of leather - a good supplier should be able to explain that to you.

Paul - I got the heat gun out and warmed it just a tad. I then pulled as hard as I could. It's tighter now and does not wrinkle when sat on.

Gene if those are google files you should be able to make a permanent link like I do.
Gdurl.com and you need to first allow sharing.

It's this one. Apologize you can't see too much of the seat boxing, but you get the idea.
