You don’t have to be a connoisseur to appreciate a chesterfield sofa, but you’d be a hard-hearted curmudgeon not to appreciate the timeless beauty and elegance of this classic British sofa icon. It’s the doyen of sofas: the king of the hill, the top of the pile and the cream of the crop of sofa design. Neil, the Gogglebox sofa sloth might not appear to appreciate the intrinsic beauty of the fabled chesterfield sofa judging by appearances, but he’s definitely ploughing a lonely furrow there. The rest of us know better. We know that if you want the ultimate in classic sofa design, then you have to choose the chesterfield sofa, because, well, it’s simply the best by a country mile.
But what lies behind this love affair? What sets the chesterfield sofa apart from other sofas? Well, firstly there’s the history. It’s been around for well over 200 years and it’s still going strong. In fact if you ask us, we think its appeal is stronger now than ever. Secondly it’s British and that should make even the most reluctant nationalist proud. It’s a quality product that built to last and stand the rigours of family life no matter what’s thrown at it, and finally it’s made from quality materials so you know you’re getting the very best money can buy.
So what’s not to like? Nothing in our opinion, but not everyone sings from the same hymn sheet. Gogglebox might be the best thing on the TV at the moment, but its contributors obviously don’t appreciate true beauty when they see it. So forget Neil, forget the Kate and Graham, Sandra and Sandy, Stephen and Chris and Steph and Dom; forget the Moffatts, the Malones, the Woerdenwebers and the Siddiquis, we know better right. They might not see the beauty of the chesterfield sofa, but we do, and we still love it. It’s the perfect family sofa and it looks great in any home environment – traditional or contemporary. If the chesterfield sofa were a ‘gift’, it would definitely be the gift that keeps on giving because it just gets better with age. It’s only a shame the same can’t be said about the rest of unfortunately.
