The Derby Chesterfield Sofa

The Derby Leather Chesterfield Sofa is highly reminiscent of the turn of the century study sofa and is based on the classic Chesterfield shape.

It has a low seat and relatively high back, compared to other Chesterfield Sofas, which gives it real depth. The Derby looks very traditional and wouldn’t look out of place in the drawing room or living room of a stately home. But it would also look equally as good in a study or office.

The Derby Chesterfield is built onto a solid beech frame, which is hand-screwed and dowelled for long lasting and superior quality. It has a very firm hand-sprung base and back, complete with deep buttoning. It has flat-faced arms with scroll top, which are also deep buttoned.

The Derby Chesterfield Sofa can be made in a choice of leather types and colours, to suit your individual taste.

The Cumberland Range consists of a foot-stool, club chair and 2, 3 and 4 seater sofas. This magnificent Leather Chesterfield Sofa and Club Chair combination can be seen in some of the grandest sitting rooms all over the world.

This classic adaptation of a contemporary Leather Chesterfield Sofa features a fully sprung back, built on a hand sprung frame, and has charming flared arms. Rich mahogany legs, with solid brass castors, and deep buttoned seat finish off this delightful sofa perfectly.

Chesterfield Sofas – A Variety of Choice

Chesterfield Sofas come in many different shapes and sizes. From the traditional and formal Essex Sofa to the contemporary and flamboyant Cumberland Sofa – the choices in finish detail, sizes and shapes are almost endless.

But which Chesterfield Sofa is right for me? And what do I want out of it?

Different people require different characteristics in their Chesterfield Sofa – whether it be the traditional firm sprung and webbed or the informal soft and squishy. There are practically dozens of different styles of Chesterfield Sofa to choose from but there are only a few different basic designs. These are:

  • Straight or Crested Back:
    The profile of the back gives the Chesterfield Sofa it’s shape. Straight backed Chesterfields are more traditional in appearance. Crested backs do, however, tend to give more lateral back support.
  • Low or High Leg:
    With regard to the stance of your Chesterfield Sofa, many traditional Chesterfields have plain wooden bun feet. However, many Chesterfields now tend to have a thinner undercarriage and a taller leg gives a more elevated appearance.
  • Cushioned or Buttoned Base:
    It is down to personal preference and taste as to whether you go for the comfort and shape of a stuffed cushion or whether you prefer a buttoned and tufted base instead.

The Chesterfield Sofa – highly sought after due to it’s traditional design and quality parts – is probably the most popular type of hand-made leather sofa you can buy.
