A chesterfield sofa is definitely one of the classiest couches of the furniture history. This sofa is known for its rather large built and upright armrests that are upholstered. It can be associated to a gently giant since with its big frame and intimidating looks, it can be the softest and most comfortable chair you can sit in. A chesterfield sofa is usually featured in leather upholstery and is very often buttoned.
In England, a davenport with arms and back of the same height in buttoned leather is also referred to as a chesterfield sofa. The origin of the name might also be from the fourth earl of Chesterfield who is Phillip Stanhope who was honored by the commissioning of a fine piece of furniture which is the leather sofa.
Achieving the Finished Look: The process of French polishing is favored for fine wood finishing. Any exposed wood, such as the legs or ends of sofa arms will have several coats of color rubbed in by hand. The color is allowed to set and harden for at least two days before it can move on to the next stage of production.
