Our Top 3 – Chesterfield Sofas For Sale

By Darlings Of Chelsea

An icon of furniture design and a cornerstone of British style, Chesterfield Sofas are a classic leather sofa that has truly stood the test of time.

For decades, Chesterfield Sofas have adorned living rooms with elegance – delivering comfort and style in equal measure – and their understandable popularity has continued in recent years in spite of pressure from more modern designs.

Indeed while our range of contemporary designer sofas gets plenty of attention from our customers, there are few styles that can rival the Chesterfield sofa for popularity.

Chesterfield Sofas

When it comes to such an icon of design, they say you should accept no imitations – and that’s certainly our belief here at Darlings of Chelsea. That’s why our Chesterfield sofas are handcrafted (right here in the UK) by skilled and experienced craftsmen, using only the finest leather hides.

Cromwell Chesterfield Sofas

Cromwell Chesterfield Sofa

One of our most exceptional Chesterfield Sofas, already proving popular since its recent addition to our range, is the Cromwell Chesterfield Sofa.

With its glamorous curved armrests and expansive, deep seat, the Cromwell epitomises the luxury of a Chesterfield sofa. Studded detail, often a feature of this particular style of furniture, adds a neat detail.

Like so many of our sofas, the Cromwell Chesterfield is available in a range of high-quality leathers. For that authentic, vintage lived-in look, we offer an antiqued leather – hand-rubbed for a two-tone effect that looks stunning in a traditional living room setting.

We also offer naturally distressed leathers, which are given a wax coat for durability while retaining the beautiful natural look on the surface.

Also available are hand coloured leathers, whereby dyes are massaged into the leather before being allowed to dry. We repeat the process as many as six times, creating an entirely unique effect on every piece as the leather absorbs the dye at slightly different rates throughout.


Stanley Chesterfield Sofa

Another of our Chesterfield sofas to benefit from a range of leather and colour options is the popular Stanley Chesterfield Sofa. The Stanley is one of the most comfortable Chesterfield sofas you could ever wish to experience, making it perfect for everyday use.

It is arguably less dramatic in style than the Cromwell, with a somewhat more understated, angular appearance – but the scroll arms and studded detail are there, as are the other classic telltale signs of a Chesterfield. It’s a beautifully simple, elegant piece and lends itself to all kinds of living spaces.

Available in all manner of sizes from a single-seater to a family sofa for four, this is the Chesterfield sofa for all occasions.


Austin Chesterfield Sofa

Austin Chesterfield Sofa

Our best-selling of all though is the Austin Chesterfield Sofa. Exceptionally stylish, the Austin offers tremendous value and comes in the full range of leathers.

It’s a range brimming with choice, with single-seat chairs, high back chairs, footstools and of course sofas all available – in a distinctive and classic style.
