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!
