About Distinctive Chesterfields

Like each and every one of our sofas, it took time and hard work for Distinctive Chesterfields to get to where it is today. Built on strong family values, our company started life as a modest-sized team. With dedicated husband and wife duo Steve and Clare Laidlaw at the helm, the brand expanded to offer worldwide customers luxurious handcrafted furniture that's built to last.

We've been making traditional leather furniture from our Honley (West Yorkshire) base for over seven years – and we've been thrilled to supply pieces to a host of homes.

With a huge range of hand-selected, Italian leather hides to choose from, along with a wealth of sofa styles, our furniture is Distinctive. From its solid hardwood base, right through to it feather topped cushions, iconic studding and detailed piping, when you buy from us you can be sure of a luxurious end product.

We work hard to bring you exactly what you want; our bespoke service means that if you can't find what you're looking for in our range, we'll manufacture it for you.

When you choose a chesterfield from Distinctive Chesterfields, you're not just buying a sofa, you're buying an experience. From the moment you step into our showroom to the minute you take delivery of your beautifully-crafted piece, we'll not only meet but exceed your expectations.

Our 15-strong workshop team puts care and attention into each and every piece, and it's not before careful and thorough inspection that your sofa leaves our Honley premises to become the focal point in your home. It all starts here.

About Our Furniture

Chesterfields mean different things to different people. For some, the iconic chesterfield sofa – with its comfy corners, deep seat and distinctively buttoned back is the absolute heart of the home. You may yourself remember sinking into the luxuriously upholstered seats of a chesterfield, taking in its nostalgic, leathery scent while kicking back and watching your favourite TV programme. Maybe you recall curling up in the comforting arms of a huge wingback chair, a captivating book in hand.

Or perhaps, like many, you're a recent convert to this traditional, yet surprisingly contemporary classic. Enjoying a revival in recent years, the chesterfield has graced many a home – and it's testament to its instantly recognisable, Great British design that it continues to do so well elsewhere, too.

With customers from as far afield as the US and Japan, it's true our elegant designs captured the hearts of interior fans everywhere. But it's the craftsmanship that makes our pieces stand out, each created by skilled artisans in our Honley workshop.

Our Friends

We are incredibly proud to be friends of S.S.A.F.A: the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association, a charity that offers assistance to serving and non-serving members of the armed forces. They operate with families in mind helping with some of the most important parts of family life including locating required accommodation and offering assistance and support when circumstances change.

We understand that a friend isn't always someone you see everyday, as a friend can be someone you've never even met. The volunteers of S.S.A.F.A understand this and dedicate their time to helping those in need whether it's face to face or over the phone.
