This style has gone well beyond the boundaries of the mansions of the upper middle class and the English nobility, and there are models all over the world.
The Chesterfield sofa has become one of the most desired pieces of furniture over time. But when was his creation? How did this style spread ?
There is no official story, but this mythical sofa was commissioned by Lord Philip Stanhope, Earl of Chesterfield, in the 18th century.
This pure gentleman possessed a code of conduct and impeccable manners, as attested by the Letters to his son on the art of becoming a man of the world and a gentleman. He wanted a couch that would help him avoid crumpling his clothes, a sign that he was a man of quality for whom style and appearance were the first mark of distinction of a true lord.
The real Chesterfield is characterized by its buttoned leather and its shape reminiscent of the collar of a coat. After his death, this sofa was bequeathed to his godson, Solomon Dayrolles, who made it available to visitors.
Soon, his guests wanted to get a replica. This way, this sofa returned to the homes of the families of English high society. This style of sofa spread quickly throughout the world thanks to the expansion of the English Empire until the beginning of the 20th century.
It’s found in Canada, India, and even Australia.
