Budget Chesterfield or Cheap Chesterfield- How to Spot Good Value from Cheap Quality.

The problem with a Leather Chesterfield is that a good portion of the price you pay is for the bits you cant see rather than the bits you can, which is why I decided to write this article to let people know what to look for in a good quality chesterfield sofa.

Firstly, the easy bits to spot-

  • Is it real leather? (the easiest way to find out is to ask or smell.)
  • Is it a demic?

This is also fairly easy to spot. Look at the arm from the front. Is the last button on the top of the arm or the outside of the arm? if the top then the leather is full hide, if on the side then the sofa is a demic. These are much cheaper in price and quality. I will post more on this later.

Other than that, without pulling the thing apart, check the weight- the heavier the better, and check the reputation of the seller – and bear in mind that many sellers DONT have anything to do with the manufacturing process, they just buy and sell
