Why People Love Chesterfield Beds?
Although Chesterfield has been around for a while, not everyone is familiar with its history. Continue reading to learn more about this style and how it can be used in modern and classic homes.
What’s Chesterfield Furniture?
The Chesterfield sofa is the most popular choice for this type of furniture. The Chesterfield sofa is a British style that has been around for over 300 years. It was popular in country homes and gentlemen’s clubs, before it saw a revival and many people choosing the Chesterfield design for their homes.
The Chesterfield sofa is easily recognisable due to its large dimensions and rolled arms. These sofas can be made in either fabric or leather and have deep button tufting.
“Chesterfield” is now a term used to describe furniture that has many of these key characteristics. This shows that true style never goes out-of-fashion.
The classic Chesterfield is often associated with scroll beds, with their beautiful curves and smooth lines. Bedroom furniture with deep quilting or button detailing is also a common choice. This style is a great way to give your home an elegant touch without spending a lot.
Why are They Called “Chesterfield Sofas”?
Legend has it that Lord Philip Stanhope IV, Fourth Earl of Chesterfield was the first to commission furniture in this style in the 1700s. The piece was displayed shortly after his death and became very popular with his contemporaries.
Lord Stanhope wanted a piece of furniture that would support him and allow him to sit straight without his suit getting wrinkled. We think the design is perfect for the task. The Chesterfield’s appeal is now more about style and comfort rather than keeping your favorite clothing wrinkle-free.
