The trailblazing Chesterfield style has been at the forefront of elegant, luxurious style for over two hundred and fifty years. Today, the name is synonymous with quality, beauty and craftsmanship, and the furniture most people associate with it has never fallen from fashion.The origins of the Chesterfield involve a story of ostentatious glamour, and a desire for something truly unique, impressive and custom-made.
Way back in mid-eighteenth century England, Philip Dormer Standhope - Count of the English town of Chesterfield - felt that the furniture he’d inherited for his stately home lacked a certain something, and did nothing to reflect his individual sense of style and flair. Wanting to impress his noble friends with his exquisite taste, modern outlook and eye for detail, he hired the services of a leading craftsman, and together they set about designing a new style of sofa for his parlour. It was to be a vision of modernity at the time: combining practicality, durability and exquisite elegance, it featured pronounced stitching, oversized buttons, round-headed visible nails and a sturdy yet refined shape alongside sensual, rounded armrests.
It was an instant hit, becoming nothing short of a symbol of quality, high-class English design and an icon of success. The Chesterfield was a veritable game-changer; this timeless trendsetter has lost none of its impact, and continues to provide inspiration for luxury designers to this day.
