The Chesterfield style is the most famous and recognizable furniture in the world. With its luxurious leather, deep buttons, low back and high arms, this characteristic style has graduated from gentlemen's clubs in the ancient British Empire, to become a popular home furniture in all corners of the world.

Between the 16th and 19th centuries, British territories and colonies conquered the world, forming what would become known as the British Empire. Wherever the British went, they also brought their favorite Chesterfields. The sofa became firmly linked to luxury and quality for designers worldwide, and continued to appear in homes, offices, clubs, restaurants and other places where a hint of upper class was needed.

The style is named after Lord Philip Stanhope, the fourth Earl of Chesterfield (1694-1773), who was one of Britain's wealthy aristocratic classes. The Earl was widely known as a trendsetter of his time, some looking at the latest styles and styles. In his home, these special sofas were widely admired, to the point where many guests had their own versions made. Since this style didn't have the name that time, people gradually began to mention the "Chesterfield sofas".

But in Victorian times, both frameworks and materials were radically changed, and many of the luxurious features we saw today were added. Finally, Chesterfield had developed into the exclusive, durable and cozy couch we know today.
