The Pelham Chesterfield Sofa
The Chesterfield is a sofa that often sparks lively debate. Those who say they dislike them often have memories of a parent’s old Chesterfield, hard of seat, bereft of personality and covered in hard shiny leather. These Chesterfields are different, they don’t divide opinion at all, they are simply loved. They effortlessly woo the doubters, not only are they delightful to behold they are also fantastically comfortable. The Pelham is their most timeless with slimmer arms, a flatter top and luxurious duck and reflex seat cushions. The buttons are deep and the facings can be piped in a contrast colour or nailed with a stud of your choice. Each Pelham takes up to a week to upholster in a fabulous soft leather, hardy wool or lush velvet but it is definitely worth the time and care taken as the result is the one of the most beautiful English Chesterfields that you can buy.
