Traditionally English, hand-tufted, hand-built chesterfield sofas have made something of a comeback over recent years, particularly here in the US. Here at Distinctive Chesterfields, we make our buttoned, leather chesterfields – from beautiful two, three and four-seat couches, to wing back chairs and ottomans – in our UK workshop, ready to be shipped to our US-based franchise partner in High Point, North Carolina. Are you looking for something specific? Our sales lady Ruth can order it in for you, to be delivered directly to your home.
Distinctive Chesterfields is a West Yorkshire-based company built on a solid foundation of family values. Our customers' requirements are always met; we can make products to your exact specification so do get in touch for a chat. We offer a made-to-order service, which means you can choose leather colour, size and even alter the dimensions of our couches to meet your needs and complement your home.
All our chesterfields are handmade in England, using only the finest leathers and hardwood frames. Buy your chesterfield couch or chair from us and you can be sure of a truly British product; we even add a plaque to the back of each piece which states its authenticity as a hand- built piece of classic English design.
A quintessentially British product, the chesterfield sofa has earned its place as a real design icon. The deep-buttoned, leather-covered couch is thought to have taken its name from the Earl of Chesterfield – a public speaker and fashion expert of the day. The story is that on his deathbed, with his servant and friend, Mr Dayrolls, in attendance, his last words were: 'Give Mr Dayrolls a chair', according to a piece in the British newspaper The Independent. The Earl of Chesterfield passed away just after, it's reported, and the servant was apparently confused as to whether the Earl had meant he should sit down, or indeed keep the chair as a gift.
The story has, as expected, lived on, although it is believed the Earl would have been referring to a couch and not a chair. In the late 18th century, deep-buttoned, furniture was fashionable in velvet, rather than leather, and here at Distinctive Chesterfields we offer couches and chairs in both materials, including any other fabric of your choice.
Symbolising a certain style, the chesterfield remains popular today and velvet chesterfield couches in general are highly sought-after. And thanks to their beautiful studded detailing, comfortable cushions, and stunning distressed or aged appearance, it's not hard to see why.
We stock a small range of Chesterfield couches, love seats and chairs in our US showroom, but if we don't have what you're looking for, please contact our US sales lady, Ruth and she'll discuss your specific requirements. Why not book a time slot to visit Ruth and see some of our gorgeous handcrafted furniture for yourself?
