|Hayden sofa by RL Home|
Chesterfield sofa is a beautiful piece of furniture. It is a deep, low rolled back, tufted/buttoned sofa with arms and back of the same height. All these characteristics give it a very masculine look.
Named after 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip D. Stanhope. It is said the Earl asked his furniture maker to make a sofa for him in which a gentleman could sit upright but comfortably. The result was Chesterfield sofa.
These sofas and chairs feel equally elegant in any room, and give a formality to the space they are in.
