Chesterfield sofas are a particular type of sofa or couch normally upholstered in rich leather that is overstuffed and then affixed to an underlying frame that is usually made of wood. The distinctive feature of Chesterfields that gives them their distinctive look, style and their name is the method that is used to affix the leather to the frame that makes sure the upholstery and the stuffing stays in place. This is done with leather covered buttons that not only make these couches very smart looking but also make them one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture that you can sink into when you come back home after a hard day’s work.
These days as people are spending as much money and time on decorating their homes as they do on picking out clothing for their own wardrobes; Chesterfields are coming back into vogue like never before. Chesterfields have always been a favourite of older people looking for luxurious and comfortable furniture that looks classy and timeless. Look in a large rambling country house in most places in the United States for instance and more often than not you will see a Chesterfield sofa in rich, earthy hued leather. But nowadays as a new and younger generation of stylish hipsters discover the Chesterfield and tries to add class and an air of sophistication to their homes. Chesterfields are now the sofa or couch of choice of people in urban cities as well.
The great thing about Chesterfield sofas is that, with tweaks to the design and size they are equally at home in a large rambling countryside home as they are in a cramped city apartment or a studio. Add to this the right colour of leather and you can either have a discrete and old school sofa in rich, earthy tones that looks like it has been used and loved for a long time. Or one in bright colours like a red or a pristine white that looks like the coolest thing and is the centre of any room that it sits in. When buying Chesterfield sofa it make sense to make sure you know exactly what you are looking for before you go out shopping. Know the exact size and the kind of leather you want your Chesterfield to have. A well made example will not be cheap but it will last you for many years so it is best to make sure you get one that you will be happy with. Also a good place to buy Chesterfields these days is online as the choice is simply endless and you can customise every little detail to get the perfect sofa delivered right to your door step.
