Chesterfield armchairs in the home

Chesterfield armchairs are undoubtedly a luxurious addition to your, no matter whether you are looking to bring in an antique piece from the early days of the style or a more recent chesterfield model. While we do, of course, love antique and vintage chesterfield armchairs, even modern reproductions carry some of the history of this iconic chair design and instantly help to elevate an average living room into an cool, chic and attractive one.

Originally only found in the homes of the wealthy, it was during the 20th century that chesterfield armchairs became more commonplace in homes around the country. The eye-catching button-back look of the chesterfield is commonly found in leather, brining a sense of sophistication and beauty to a relaxation space. Chesterfields are also surprisingly common in workplaces, used in offices for casual meetings or in break-out spaces.

One of the things that is most appealing about the chesterfield armchair is that it can be used both in isolation and in tandem with other chesterfield pieces – such as the sofa. Indeed it is quite common today to see chesterfield armchairs used in a mix and match living space, contrasting with a different style of sofa, whether it is used in a reading corner or as a statement piece in the centre of the room.

Chesterfield armchairs: the style

The shape of the Chesterfield armchair can change depending on the size and amount of padding added. There are two common designs of Chesterfield armchairs. One is where the height of the arm rest aligns with the back of the chair and the other is the more conventional design where the back is taller than the arm rests.

A Chesterfield armchair is then covered in quality leather and covered in a symmetrical pattern of buttons or studs. The armchair is then made even more durable by being buffed and sealed. You can buy these pieces of furniture in a range of subtle and neutral colours as well as more bold colours such as shades of red and green.

Benefits of Chesterfield armchairs

Chesterfield armchairs are a great way to separate your interior from those of your friends and neighbours. These items can propel your home’s aesthetics to a more refined and sophisticated level. They are unique items that will stand out immediately. Across the generations, a broad range of leathers have been used in chesterfield sofas – from black to grey, brown to beige, and even red to green.

They aren’t just beautiful but also extremely comfortable and a convenient choice. These armchairs can be cleaned effortlessly. Instead of scrubbing fabric armchairs trying to remove daily marks and spillages with difficulty, you only need a damp cloth to clean the leather on these chairs. Buy a heritage chesterfield and you will, of course, find that there are inevitable signs of wear and use on your armchair but given the explosion in popularity of the shabby chic look this can certainly be seen as a good thing for an informal and welcoming interior.
