What have Harry Potter, Great Expectations, the Borrowers and the Bank Job got in common? Well, obviously they were all on the TV over the festive period, but they also share another common feature: they all featured chesterfield sofas. In the case of Hogwarts it wasn’t just the one either: the Gryffindor common room had 4 traditional leather chesterfield sofas as far as we could see. You could also throw into the mix Notting Hill, Absolutely Fabulous, Elf, Come Dine with Me and the Queen’s Christmas address for good measure. Every one of these programmes featured a variety of traditional chesterfield sofas, leather chesterfield settees or chesterfield-inspired furniture. All in all it was a pretty good festive period all round for the classic English furniture icon. Chesterfield sofas are all the rage at the moment it seems, and let’s face it, if it’s good enough for the Palace or Hogwarts, then it must surely be good enough for the rest of us.
So what does this tell us about this iconic piece of furniture? Well, let’s just say that it merely confirms what we’ve known all along. Chesterfield sofas are perfect for all sorts of environments and living spaces. You don’t necessarily have to live in grand place like Hogwarts or an upmarket area like Notting Hill to justify owning one: a traditional chesterfield settee can look just as perfect in any living room. Whether you’re looking for a classic leather chesterfield sofa or a contemporary piece of chesterfield furniture, there’s a chesterfield that’s ideal for you and will give your home that touch of class and refinement.
They are infinitely versatile and can blend in to any decorative living scheme. Chesterfield sofas are the perfect solution for the centre piece of your living room, whether the look you’re after is contemporary or traditional. They’ve certainly got the classic lines that all traditionalists require, but because they are infinitely adaptable, they fit perfectly in a modern setting too, however stark and minimal that might be.
