Each of these beautiful pieces exudes class and style, which is reflected through each unique characteristic and eye for detail.
Due to their many distinctive features, the Chesterfield has become a household name, with a desired look and feel. Being primarily made of leather or velvet enhances the refined, luxurious style and composition behind the brand, - another reason why they are so prominent within the world of sofas.
Traditionally made of leather, they are usually brown but come in a wide range of colours. The sofas and armchairs have specific tufting details, high arms and low back. This creates a very rectangular silhouette where the back and arms are at the same height.
