What is a Chesterfield Sofa?

Chesterfield is one of the most popular classic designs of sofas, the style has been around for centuries starting in Britain and becoming a global trend.

Originally the sofa was rich in brown leather with deep button detailing and high arms, but throughout the years it has been modernised into different versions adapted from the original, so there are a lot of styles to choose from.

Starting off in the homes of the elite and the likes of gentlemen’s clubs across Britain, the Chesterfield sofa is now a very popular choice in homes across the globe!

Deep Button Detailing

(The Savanna)

The first thing that springs to mind when thinking of a chesterfield styled sofa is the deep button detailing. This very traditional look is iconic really does make chesterfield styled sofas a real statement piece.

High Arms

Another key feature of the chesterfield is the high arms. Traditionally, a chesterfield styled sofa has the arms the same height as the back of the sofa. At first, this may not look very comfortable, but with the low seat base and the arms and back at a good height, this offers lots of support for your back proving the Chesterfield style to be perfect for relaxing in.
