We shouldn’t really be all that surprised when we see chesterfield sofas on TV. After all it’s only ‘art’ imitating life. You’d be hard-pushed to go into many bars and restaurants these days without seeing a leather chesterfield sofa. It always used to be said that they were ubiquitous: well, the truth is now they really are. What was a surprise, however, were the number of chesterfield sofas and chairs on show in the Gok Wan bar. We counted at least 6 lovely leather chesterfield sofas and probably 4 or more traditional leather chesterfield chairs. Is that overkill in such a small space? Well, possibly but it certainly made us feel at home: it was like another day in our chesterfield sofa workshop. Still, normal service will no doubt be resumed next week when we return to the Costume Drama or Embarrassing Body format, so in the meantime enjoy the moment. Drink in the chesterfield sofa excess and luxuriate in the sight and smell of the soft, sumptuous leather settees like the guests in the bar are obviously doing. Something must be persuading them to stay where they are. The company can’t be that great, so the sofas must be really comfortable.]]>
