Once we redecorate and upgrade our current house before putting it back on the market and hopefully moving onto a more "forever home" both John and I have agreed that we would both love to have a big bold Chesterfield sofa in either our reception or living space, something we see as a real investment piece that has longevity. Even though sometimes they can seem quite heavy in appearance they are a classic piece of furniture that is a lot more versatile than you think.
They fit perfectly into a lovely bay fronted victorian property as they do into a hip loft style apartment and they often look better with age and are an item that really stands the test of time, something you could even past down to your children. I always remember the amazing chesterfields in my fathers office at work and there is something very comforting about them. Vintage or new they hark back to the old British country lodge style and are strong enough to endure many toddlers antics as well as teens and adults and almost become apart of the family.
There are very few styles of sofas that are as iconic and timeless as the Chesterfields and they can be as much a statement piece as also a workable piece of furniture that really does fit into any style of home. You can dress them up with various pillows, textiles and throws or leave them bold and beautiful and now you can also get them in different colours and fabrics. If your looking for some inspiration check out Distinctive Chesterfields who are having a 40% off sale (I love a bargain!) and they have a large selection of styles and shades to suit any taste. What is your favourite type of sofa?
