Warm and cosy evenings by the fire and brisk, crisp walks in the great outdoors – just two things to look forward to now autumn has well and truly set in. But there’s so much more than that to the brand new season! With Halloween (October 31) and Bonfire Night (November 5) just around the corner, our American Distinctive Chesterfields also have Thanksgiving to get prepared for.
And whether you prefer getting wrapped up to head outside, for a stomp through the autumn leaves and spot of conker picking; or your idea of seasonal bliss is a roaring fire and a mug of cocoa, we bet this autumn’s going to be a belter. We’ve already been treated to some refreshingly crisp sunny autumnal weather – unusual for October – and there’s all sorts of things to get excited about.
Here at Distinctive Chesterfields, the team is looking forward to all kinds of autumn delights. Mark – our international sales manager – tells us that, for him, autumn’s all about fires: warming your toes in front of one and taking in the beautiful sights, smells and sounds of a huge bonfire outside. Oh and fireworks, too. “You can’t beat them at this time of year,” says Mark.
Meanwhile, our German sales executive Maxine says she loves nothing more than ‘snuggling up in front of the fire on her cosy sofa’. A huge chesterfield fan, Maxine dreams of cosying up on a huge leather chesterfield sofa or chair, her favourite shows on the TV and some delicious snacks close by.
Distinctive Chesterfields’ owners Steve and Clare are also huge fans of snuggling up in front of the fire, telling us it’s exactly what Chesterfields were made for on cold autumn nights.
And our Sophie – our MD’s assistant and Distinctive Chesterfields’ sales executive? She says her “favourite part about autumn has to be Halloween – time to dress up, watch scary films and carve pumpkins.” Well said, Sophie. Well said.
