We all love dimples; they make us smile, and we associate them with being attractive and happy. The traditional leather chesterfield sofa is covered in them. We hear lots of incredible words people use to describe the traditional tufted sofas. I like to think of them as full of dimples!
What does a dimple represent?
Beauty and Youth.
Many of us associate dimples with being young, people with dimples are often referred to as having a “cute baby face”. In our Western culture we perceive dimples as being an attractive feature on both women and men alike. In Shakespeare’s ‘Venus and Adonis’, Adonis, the God of beauty and desire in Greek mythology was described as having “in each cheek a pretty dimple”.
Good Luck and Prosperity.
In other cultures, dimples are seen as a sign of good luck and prosperity. Cleopatra is deemed to have had dimples. In the Indian culture, dimples that are seen on a woman when she is smiling, is an indication that the woman is well liked by her husband. In both Asian and Greek cultures dimples are looked upon as a as a sign of attractiveness and truthfulness.
Chesterfield sofas have enhanced and beautified our homes of families since the 18th century. Philip Dormer Stanhope, the fourth Earl of Chesterfield wanted a sofa that was designed to allow a gentleman to sit upright and be depicted as honest and noble whilst remaining comfortable. Apparently Phillip Stanhope didn’t want to slouch on a couch!
