Sofas to Love: Chesterfield

We love great design and Chesterfield leather sofas are intrinsically timeless, but each generation sees something different in each period, and Chesterfields can be dated from their particular styles.

Chesterfield armchairs and sofas are hand built by skilled craftsmen using only the finest materials: premium leathers, brass castors, solid beech fames, mahogany feet. We could go on: it is sufficient to say that none of the process is mass produced or outsourced. The components of each piece of Chesterfield furniture are made the traditional way: hand formed and also assembled by hand, using dowels, screws, and corner blocks for added strength. Unfortunately, many English built leather Chesterfield sofas for sale simply trade on our heritage of skilled craftsmen, but proceed to commit heresies, such as buying in pre-sprung cushions and then placing them on unsprung frames so as to compete on price with Far Eastern manufacturers.
Once the Chesterfield sofa frame has been fully assembled any wood that will be visible in the finished product is French polished by hand using several coats. When this time consuming process is finished the polish is allowed to fully harden in a temperature controlled environment for 2 days. The frame must now be sprung, which is a labour intensive process that involves applying individual coil or serpentine springs to the frame to ensure a long lasting shape to the Chesterfield sofas. 
Once this stage is completed, the padding is shaped to the design applied, panel by panel, until sofa takes its finished shape. 
Chesterfield sofa leather is selected from only those fine grain hides with the required finish. Templates are applied to the leather hides and the panels cut out by a dedicated pattern maker, who on completion passes the finished Chesterfield direct to the upholsterer, who applies it to the sofa. This process can take up to 3 days to complete. 
The final step is the buttoning and studding of your sofa. Between 300 -1200 studs are individually applied, which again distinguishes Chesterfield sofas from many others, who sadly apply strips of studs in long swathes to the upholstered sofa. Finally, the Chesterfield sofa leather is buffed or rubbed off and then sealed to protect the finished look. 
Only then Chesterfield sofa is for sale!

Crucifixos fora das escolas públicas por ordem do Governo

Ministra da Educação diz não querer atacar a Igreja Católoca, mas antes fazer alguma pedagogia e demonstrar igual respeito por todas as religiões. Os ofícios com a ordem governamental já começaram a chegar às escolas onde os símbolos religiosos ainda permanecem visíveis

Embora ache que há cruzes muito mais importantes com que o governo se devia preocupar, e essas sim deviam ser uma prioridade, pois são cruzes demasiado pesadas e estão nos ombros dos portugueses, como é o caso dos impostos, do desemprego, etc...Não posso deixar de concordar com a atitude. Afinal, e embora a população portuguesa seja maioritariamente católica, não nos podemos esquecer que vivemos numa democracia e que temos que levar em consideração todas as outras ideologias religiosas, parece-me por isso uma medida acertada e coerente a de retirar os crucifixos das escolas públicas.
Não há que impôr nenhuma religião a ninguém, há que educar e respeitar a liberdade de escolha de cada um.

Aprender a ser prostituta

Com o objectivo de descrever as ocupações existentes no país, o governo brasileiro criou no site do Ministério do Trabalho e Emprego, um manual de como ser uma boa prostituta. No item 5198 é descrita passo-a-passo a actividade de prostituição, desde a abordagem ao cliente até a satisfação dele.

Este "manual" é de facto "muito pedagógico", já que os conselhos nele fornecidos, vão desde a forma de poupar e aplicar o dinheiro, até sugestões directas de como atender o cliente.

O manual está dividido em sete partes: conseguir clientes, minimizar as vulnerabilidades, atender clientes, acompanhar clientes, administrar orçamentos, promover a organização da categoria e realizar acções educativas no campo da sexualidade.

Para os interessados, fiquem a saber que, e, segundo o manual, uma prostituta, só alcança o pleno desempenho da sua atividade após dois anos de experiência.

Por isso meus amigos, se pensarem em recorrer à ajuda de uma profissional do sexo, a primeira pergunta qu…
