Chesterfield sofa is not just a piece of furniture but a piece of history

Chesterfield, as we now know it, is an exquisite leather sofa that incorporates prominent tufting pattern into its back, seat or both. Its recognized design has turned the Chesterfield sofa into a descriptive and highly transcending style of seating thought to be namesaked after the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Lord Philip Stanhope who was looking for a furniture solution that allowed comfort without the sacrifice of mannered personal appearance. The original Chesterfield offered an upright, firm seat, adorned with buttons and nail head trim for added trendsetting qualities and aesthetic refinement.

Today, chesterfield sofas have changed the status quo of formal seating, and are used in all settings and in all styles, not just in traditionally designed spaces. Their old-fashioned stigmas and conventional class barriers have disintegrated, with modern sofa versions designed to embrace the decorative depths of original chesterfields with simplified details and a timeless British imprint on interior design.

Some of our favorite Chesterfield inspired masterpieces include the Aston collection by Gamma Arredamenti that includes a sofa, sectional, chaise, armchair and a bed.
