Regardless, this now-classic sofa has several characteristics that are always present: The back and the arms are both of one height and the back is deeply tufted with buttons. Traditionally, the arms were always rolled and the sofa had nailheads, however, modern styles are taking slight design liberties. This green Chesterfield from Abbyson Living has the suggestion of a roll from the interior side of the sofa, but still maintains a clean line from the exterior side.
It’s pretty difficult to say what makes cool chairs look cool in the first place, mostly because there are so many different possibilities and so many little details capable of giving that impression. For the Fringes armchair it would obviously have to be the fringes. However, not any chair could pull off such a look which means that it’s important to look at this design detail in the context of the design as a whole.
As you can see, curved sofas can be quite tricky to work with but don’t let that discourage you. In a proper environment, each of the designs we showed you here can look amazing. Look for ways to make that happen. Let the curves of the sofa soften the harsh and angular lines of the surrounding decor and let it become a statement piece. You can reiterate its curves in a variety of forms in order to create a harmonious interior design. For instance, pair the sofa with a round top coffee table or with a circular area rug.
The name alone — Chesterfield sofa — carries a certain air of distinction and even royalty. Rising to popularity in the in the 18th century, historical websites note that this iconic sofa has a slightly murky history. It is thought that the fourth Earl of Chesterfield commissioned it when he wanted a comfortable seat that allowed him to sit upright, however, there is no historical confirmation of this.
