Chesterfield 2 seater sofa is timeless for any home or office

Chesterfield couches have one of the most unique designs in the world, recognisable surely almost anywhere, whether it is 2 seater sofa or 3 seater couch. The model is characterised by high armrests, deep buttoning and leather upholstery, and the appearance of a Chesterfield sofa is called “quilted” or “tufted” style, a kind of a diamond pattern. This quilted pattern is most common on the lounge’s backrest and arms but some Chesterfield couches also have quilted seats. There are few sofa styles as well known as the Chesterfield so it shouldn’t be a surprise that this old-school design is still well and alive – and highly sought after! – even in modern buildings, whether that is at a doctor’s office or your family home.

Chesterfield lounge chair a brief history

To see why Chesterfield lounges are still so widely popular in Australia, it is worth going down in history to look at the origins of this majestic piece of furniture.

The origin of the Chesterfield couch design is shrouded in a bit of mystery, and even though we have a story of its first appearance, it might just be a legend. According to the story, the first prototype of the Chesterfield chair came about in the early 18th century in Great Britain. It was a commissioned piece of furniture by Lord Philip Stanhope, the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, which is where the name of the style is said to have originated.

Lord Stanhope was a gentleman, a writer and a politician, and according to the story he wanted to have a chair in which a gentleman could sit without creasing his suit. A local craftsman then came up with a diamond-patterned design that is thought to have started the trend of Chesterfield chairs and couches.

The style gradually spread to exclusive clubs in the city and became a popular way of decorating gentlemen’s clubs where upper-class men and lords would gather to have tea and discuss the ways of the world. Perhaps the most famous sofa in the world was also Chesterfield style – often called the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud was known to have his patients lie down on a Chesterfield couch. Even if nowadays many of his theories have been put into question, it doesn’t take away from the fact that this is the couch that he chose for the maximum comfort of his patients while they bared their hearts and deepest secrets to Freud.

Chesterfield lounges are still popular these days

Through centuries, the Chesterfield lounge has maintained its popularity. Even though owning a Chesterfield lounge is no longer necessarily a sign of wealthy upbringing, it does evoke the same elegance that comes with nobility. A fabric Chesterfield sofa Australia will likely never be out of style and is a perfect way to create a homely, old-fashioned décor in your home.

With upper-class origins like this, it is easy to see why the Chesterfield lounge is still regarded as such a stylish piece of furniture. From exclusive gentlemen’s clubs in London, this style has over the years become widely available for any Australian families - but while its classic design is now in the reach of anyone, there is nothing commonplace about its aura. The Chesterfield lounge fabric oozes the style and elegance of British upper class and can make anyone feel like the Lord or the Lady of their own mansion… Well, they do say that your home is your castle, and with a Chesterfield lounge you can surely make yourself feel that way.

And if the stories are true, it means that the first ever Chesterfield chair was actually custom made – the perfect excuse to pick it as the style for your customised couch as well!
