The history of Chesterfield armchairs

Originally commissioned by the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Lord Phillip Stanhope, the Chesterfield armchair first manufactured in the mid-18th century. Used to seat guests at grand house parties in the Georgian era, the trend for leather Chesterfield armchairs soon caught on among British nobility. The humble Chesterfield wingback armchair soon became a status symbol among the aristocracy. Eventually, the manufacturer of the original chair branched out and released Chesterfield sofas, office chairs and footstools in a now iconic style that has fans worldwide.

Why choose a vintage Chesterfield armchair?

Although still in production to this day, a vintage Chesterfield armchair offers a one-of-a-kind character to any space. As it ages, the leather takes on an arguably inviting patina and softens with use. Whether it’s a tan-toned triumph or a coveted oxblood colour you’re after, a second-hand Chesterfield armchair paired with a footstool offers a way to buy into the brand in a sustainable way.
