The Classic Chesterfield

sofa_1

This summer, we have rediscovered our attraction to a classic piece of furniture: the Chesterfield sofa. There’s a good reason the Chesterfield has remained an interior staple throughout the years. Traditionally upholstered in leather, the shape and design of these time-honored sofas integrate into nearly any aesthetic. We’ve teamed up with Distinctive Chesterfields to show how three sofa styles can fit into your home.

Inspired by this graphic botanical pillow, we paired a traditional tufted Chesterfield in dark tobacco leather with a bold pop of color. This look feels organic, yet refined.

The cognac and caramel colored leathers are some of our favorites this season. Their warm tones feel natural and we especially love this sofa, sans tufting, paired with vintage or bohemian elements. Here’s our take on an updated Chesterfield:

Style three focuses on comfort; this seat and back cushion style is perfect for cozying up on the sofa. We were inspired by dark and rich tones that show plenty of depth. The casters and nailhead details dress this option up, but doesn’t sacrifice comfort for design.

Nothing says luxury like a Chesterfield. The deep tufting, soft cushions, and quality leather are are achieved by an age old process. Distinctive Chesterfields is a family-owned business based in West Yorkshire. Each piece that goes out their door is made to order and constructed by one of their talented craftsmen. You can specify leather color, finishing details, feet, stud work, and even shape. If you’re looking for an investment piece of furniture that won’t go out of style- this is the piece to purchase.
