The refined softness of the classic nubuck fabric combined with the characteristics of a modern material comes from an interpretation by Bontempi Casa.

Once upon a time there was a sofa made of nubuck, the object of desire for every bourgeois salon. Elegant and refined, with a velvety touch making it cosy and pleasant, while a light lived-in effect gives a vintage allure and a sense of uniqueness.

“How to clean nubuck?” this is the question that often comes out before making this choice, because nubuck in nature is a particularly delicate material, that cannot be treated with oils or detergents of any kind, so any stains are difficult to be removed completely.

Research and development are constant factors in the furnishing industry, and apply to materials used as coatings for sofas, chairs and other accessories as well. The nubuck, for example, is reinterpreted by Bontempi Casa as waterproof nubuck, a synthetic material that surprisingly recreates the soft and velvety finish of the leather with this manufacturing process and lends itself to a decidedly simpler maintenance.

It is in fact subjected to a water-repellent treatment that guarantees easy cleaning, making Bontempi Casa furniture in waterproof nubuck suitable for every use in every room of the house, including the kitchen, without any worries.

It is available in beige and, if combined with a table with a wooden top, it is a truly elegant choice.

How to clean waterproof nubuck if it gets dirty with some fruit juice? Simply use a sponge dampened with cold water. If, on the other hand, the stains are coffee or chocolate, better dab with lukewarm water.

The Clara armchair has a delicate design, a classic structure and a soft seat covered in waterproof nubuck to choose from a wide colour palette, with the details of the border to pick in a contrast shade.

Have you lit some scented candles and a few drops of wax ended up on your chair? To clean the waterproof nubuck, in this case, you will have to gently remove the wax with a spatula or a blunt knife and then remove the last residues with a cloth dampened with a specific solvent for dry cleaning.
