The Lincoln Chesterfield Sofa

The Lincoln Chesterfield Sofa is an original design here at Distinctive Chesterfields. This unique sofa captures the beauty of a true Leather Chesterfield.

Rather hard to actually describe, it appears to be set rather low to the ground, which then pronounces the height of the arms and back of the sofa, when in fact, the height of the sofa is actually no different to our other Chesterfield Sofas! And it is then set on taller than usual contoured polished mahogany feet – bun feet and castored feet being the norm for most of our Chesterfield sofa range. A very palatial looking sofa yet very understated at the same time.

A custom made heavy set hardwood frame is the basis on which this, our largest standard range of Chesterfield Sofas, is built. The Lincoln features a deep buttoned seat and heavy springing. Hand-nailed studs on the facings complete the look of this high stanced Chesterfield Sofa.

This sofa can only be truly appreciated upon close inspection, to understand and take in its understated elegance. The Lincoln Chesterfield Sofa really is a sofa with timeless beauty. And finished in high quality leather, this sofa takes on a whole new look of regality.

Which Chesterfield Sofa is Right For Me?

That is the question most frequently asked in the offices at Distinctive Chesterfields. And the problem in answering it is, there is no right or wrong answer. It depends entirely on the customer and what they want from their Chesterfield Sofa.

The questions to ask are:

  • Are you looking for traditional or more modern?
  • Are you wanting comfort over appearance?
  • What type of setting will your Leather Chesterfield Sofa be placed in?

Different people seek different characteristics in their Chesterfield Sofa. Take the firm sprung and webbed Rutland Sofa – this is never going to be as soft and squishy as the more informal Kendal Sofa. However, the Dorset range of Leather Chesterfields can be seen as a compromise between the two. But why compromise?

So what we always recommend here at Distinctive Chesterfields, when buying a Leather Chesterfield Sofa, is to ask yourself “What do I want out of my sofa?” Then, and only then, can we sit down and decide which sofa would be best for you and narrow down the possibilities.

Types of Chesterfield Sofa

We have literally dozens of different styles of Chesterfield Sofa, and even more choice of colours, but there are are only a few basic different designs to choose from.

These are explained below.

  • Straight or Crested Back:
    This is to do with the back profile of the Chesterfield Sofa. Straight backed Leather Chesterfields tend to be more traditional and are probably what you have in mind when you think about Chesterfield Sofas. Crested backs are increasingly popular, as they still keep the look of a traditional Chesterfield Sofa but they give better lateral back support.
  • Low or High Leg:
    This is to do with the stance of your Leather Chesterfield Sofa. Traditionally, you will find Chesterfield Sofas are mounted on solid mahogany bun feet (low leg). Nowadays, to appeal to a wider audience, many Leather Chesterfields have a thinner undercarriage and are mounted on taller legs (high leg), usually with castors, to give a more elevated appearance.
  • Buttoned or Cushioned Base:
    This is to do with, as the name suggests, the seated area of a Chesterfield Sofa. The more traditional Chesterfield Sofas are made with a buttoned (also known as ‘tufted’) base – purists will always go for this option. Many customers though like the originality of a Leather Chesterfield Sofa but opt for the cushioned base, in which individual cushions are hand-stuffed, which gives greater comfort – ideal for a more relaxed feel.

The choice is yours!
