Chesterfield Sofas are the epitome of classic style. They are to furniture what Bentleys are to automobiles, Cartier is to watches and James Bond is to women. In a word; STYLISH. Their sleek, distinctive look oozes sophistication, and Chesterfield Sofas, with their rolled arms and buttoned tufting, command a place in any home that considers itself even the slightest bit chic.

I once got turned away from a German nightclub by a bouncer for not dressing “Klassik” enough. If only I had my Chesterfield with me.
With them being so aesthetically pleasing, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Chesterfield Sofas must be uncomfortable to sit on. Not only is the couch like lounging on a cloud, it is one of the few sofas that is genuinely good for your back. A large number of ‘C-shaped’ sofas encourage slouching, positioning your tailbone in a way that puts significant pressure on your lumbar discs. The traditional Chesterfield’s firm tufting and cushioning promotes more of a ‘S-shaped’ seat, supporting the lower back and aiding one’s posture.

It Really is the George Clooney of sofas. It gets older, it gets scuffed and inconceivably, it becomes more attractive as it does so. A sofa is alledged to have an average lifespan of just under eight years. However, I’d go as far to say that Chesterfield sofas are just beginning their lives at the eight year mark.

It baffles me how a piece of furniture with its massive history can still be widely used in modern society in such a vast range of places. Chesterfield Sofas, first made in the 18thcentury, now appear in homes, offices, gentleman’s clubs, bars, shops, snooker halls and TV talk-shows to mention a few, all the while remaining completely fit for purpose. It is the one item of furniture I know that can look beautiful in both a young hipster’s gritty Brooklyn flat and also my Gran’s terraced house.
