I've never really been much of a fan of the Chesterfield sofa. I suppose I've always associated it with stuffy dark gentlemens' smoking rooms, very heavy, very old-fashioned. Yes, the leather is wipe-clean, but think of all those buttons that can collect dirt and fluff!


But you know what? Slowly, but surely I think I'm warming to them, whether it's a velvet fabric version:

...or whether it's a quirky modern twist on the traditional leather...:

...or whether it's just a slightly more battered version of an original...


Done properly, I'm starting to think they're actually quite perfect for my perfect mixture of old and new. Are you a Chesterfield fan?

  1. They were all the rage in the 1970's. Even with a new twist they don't do much for me.

    Why? Well I guess I like good retro design, but in this case it would be retro of a 70's retro concept.
