The Chesterfield leather sofa has always been very popular among celebrities .
Lord Phillip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, was an arts patron and well known for his trendsetting tastes. He first commissioned the tufted leather sofa in the early 1700s. Its main purpose was to create seating that allowed a gentleman to sit comfortably upright without wrinkling his garment. Lord Phillip Stanhope created a piece of furniture that not only outlived him but became a symbol for elegance and luxury.
The Chesterfield sofas are usually associated with a man’s club, a smoking room, or perhaps a mahogany library. Men love them as they help to create a masculine atmosphere in a room.
We recommend Benton sofa in Deluxe Old English Black Leather if you like David Beckham’s look below.
While the Chesterfield sofa was created specifically for men, today those curvy leather sofas can match the most feminine of decors. The leather sofa that Marilyn Monroe is looking so sensual on, can be found in our collection as the Nightingale Chesterfield sofa.
