Are Chesterfields comfortable?

There’s no mistaking a Chesterfield sofa, with its rolled arms, low frame and distinctive button detailing. Chesterfields are the epitome of furniture elegance, all rolled into one highly distinguishable sofa package.


They look the part, there’s no disputing that. But are Chesterfields comfortable? Keep reading for the answer to this key question, as well as several other Chesterfield-related queries you’ve always wondered about.

Are Chesterfields comfortable? 

Yes, there are. Don’t let the low back put you off. Many Chesterfields are designed with nothing but comfort in mind. This includes super sprung bases, supple leather that moulds to your body when you sit down and comfortable cushions that make you feel fully supported.


Why are Chesterfield sofas so popular?

Chesterfields are inherently associated with grandeur and elegance. Named after the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Phillip Stanhope, they actually happen to look better as they age, making them well worth investing in. Available in various different sizes, as well as different materials and furniture pieces, such as tub chairs and footstools, the Chesterfield appeal is widespread. What’s more, they look right at home within both traditional and contemporary settings. 


Is Chesterfield a good furniture brand?

There’s no denying the fact that the Chesterfield is a British sofa classic that’s associated with quality, initiated by many pieces being made by hand with the finest wood, leather and fabric. As for whether it’s a good brand, it’s good if you are a fan of the design, and it’s also good if your Chesterfield has been well made. Mass production has led to poorer quality Chesterfields being sold, so if you are in the market for one, make sure it has a strong frame; feathers, fibres and foam are used to fill the cushions, and it’s well-sprung.


Are Chesterfield sofas durable?

They are if they’ve been made with quality materials and to a high standard, as we’ve just mentioned above. Obviously, the amount you use your Chesterfield will impact how it wears and ages, but if you’ve invested in a quality piece – with a hard-wearing frame, ample cushioning and a strong base, springs and legs, there’s no reason why it can’t last you for many years to come. As a general rule of thumb, well-manufactured sofas reportedly tend to last for 25 years or more.


Is Chesterfield sofa old-fashioned?

Are Chesterfields old-fashioned….well, they are classed as being a traditional sofa choice, but that’s no reason to write them off just yet! The Chesterfield dates back to the 18th century, when the fourth Earl of Chesterfield commissioned one to made to provide his guests with somewhere to sit without creasing their clothes. Fast forward to the present day, and the Chesterfield has really come into its own. No longer available in just shades of red or brown or in leather, the design can be found in all sorts of shades and materials, making the Chesterfield just as popular as ever!
