I don’t know about you but my Mother always refers to a couch or sofa as a chesterfield. Maybe it’s her British roots?
So if you haven’t guessed, today’s post is all about the Chesterfield Sofa.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, chesterfield was used to describe a couch in the 1900′s.
Isn’t it a handsome piece?
The theory is that Phillip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield (1694-1774), commissioned the first leather chesterfield with its distinctive low seat and deep buttoned, quilted leather upholstery.
Here’s a lovely gray one.
It looks just as good in a minimalist setting,
I love it in this soft green, it is just so fresh.
But it’s also lovely in cream.
But my absolute favourite, is it in navy.
Or how about in an olive green?
