By hearsay a truly classic quilted leather sofa with armrests and back located on the same level is the fruit of imagination of a British Earl Chesterfield. He was a famous politician and trendsetter of the 18th century. And though historically the earl’s participation in the creation of the sofa is not affirmed, this piece of furniture is definitely related to English aristocracy. Two centuries ago it was a must-have of men-only one-class clubs, in which the country’s destiny was frequently decided. Probably, that’s the reason why the Chesterfield sofa was meant to become one of the most recognizable national symbols.

This sofa undoubtedly smacks of a mannish atmosphere. Though, a girl would look great on it as well – as a contrast. But it’s surely not the item, which can be put in a cozy family living room to watch TV or take a nap after a heavy Sunday dinner. And it’s not for receiving relatives coming by. It’s sooner meant for business meetings, a chat of two buddies by a glass of whisky or, for instance, for talking with a policeman.

These functions are predestinated not only by the history of the sofa, but also by its construction and appearance: it speaks of self-mastery, businesslike air, and sobriety. Durable and secure, with its timeless design and high-quality materials, it will apparently be good for your grandchildren as well.
