Chesterfield sofas: putting the ‘great’ in Britain

Chesterfield Sofa

Here’s a question for you? What makes Britain great? What have we got as a nation that sets us on a pedestal and makes us stand out from the rest of the world?

Well, it’s certainly not the weather, that’s for sure. Yes it might be sunny at the moment, but we just know that won’t last. So, what else is there? Well, we’ve got a truly green and pleasant land with some spectacular and dramatic scenery. We’ve got a relatively stable economy, a nation full of entrepreneurial spirit and get up and go, we’re a tolerant and multicultural society and we gave democracy to the rest of the world.

Yes, we’ve got a lot to feel proud about. But we think what truly puts the ‘Great’ in Britain is our manufacturing industry. We’ve given the world the jet engine, the computer, life-saving medicines and best of all the most iconic piece of furniture to grace any living room – the traditional chesterfield sofa. As a design classic it’s peerless, but best of all it’s British.

So what makes this classic piece of furniture so special? Well chesterfield sofas are remarkable because they have the ability to seamlessly combine style and functionality: a quality that few other pieces of furniture can match. Traditional Chesterfield sofas are also timeless, and have a wonderful pedigree and history. They’re built to the most-exacting standards by time-served craftsmen using traditional methods that have stood the test of time. From the sturdy and resilient hardwood frame to the quality fine grained leather upholstery; traditional chesterfield sofas are built to last.

They are also infinitely versatile and will look stunning in any living scheme, be that contemporary or traditional. Chesterfield sofas have certainly got the classic lines all traditionalists require, but because they are so adaptable, they fit perfectly in a modern setting, however stark and minimal that might be.

So, the next time someone asks you what puts the ‘Great’ into Britain, just tell them it’s the ubiquitous chesterfield sofa. A Chesterfield sofa is a style icon that’s been around for over two hundred years and just oozes class and sophistication. They are comfortable and welcoming, practical, hardwearing and resilient, stylish and adaptable and offer incredible value for money. What more could you possibly ask of a sofa?
