The classic Chesterfield sofa is probably one of the most famous furniture styles in world. The history of this iconic piece is shrouded in rumour. Some people believe the Chesterfield sofa was named after Phillip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield. Others believe the Chesterfield sofa was named after the town in Derbyshire and in Canada the term is simply used to describe a sofa of any style.
Whatever you believe, Chesterfield sofas can come in many different shapes and sizes. From the Classic ‘antique deep buttoned leather upholstery’ style to the more contemporary styles adopting flared arms, fabric upholstery and tubular steel frames. No matter what style they assume, a Chesterfield is usually defined by their very distinctive look of arms at the same height as the back.
Chesterfields are renowned as an icon of Great British furniture design, which have seen a rise in popularity over recent years. This is in no doubt down to their classic shape and reputation for being cosy and comfortable.
