Undoubtedly the Chesterfield bed originates from the iconic Chesterfield sofa. So where does the Chesterfield sofa originate from? Over 300 years old, this style of sofa has long been associated with opulence. It is said that in times gone by they were generally owned by men of standing. Such men often had a number of people who wanted to see them. It has been argued that the buttoned back design was to discourage people from staying too long! There are also anecdotes that the sofa was named after the Earl of Chesterfield, who was at the time considered a fashion icon. Regardless of its origins the chesterfield style is synonymous with classic good taste.
