Handmade in Lancashire, England

Every Chesterfields Direct sofa is handmade to order by our expert craftsmen in Lancashire, England. So relax and begin creating your bespoke sofa from our range of the finest antique leathers and colours.

Our craftsmen have over 30 years’ experience of using the highest quality materials and the best manufacturing techniques to create your unique leather sofa. Every hardwood frame is made from solid seasoned beech which ensures a strong and durable base. Each frame is assembled by hand using a traditional combination of glue, screws and dowels to form very strong joints which are designed to last a lifetime.

Classic upholstery

We handpick our range of superior quality leathers to bring you a premium choice of natural finished leather. Every leather covering is made unique by its own natural markings, but every sofa we make delivers the same characteristics - the highest levels of comfort, appearance, durability and detailed finishing.

The traditional two-tone antiquing process has been used for hundreds of years on the finished leather of every classic English Chesterfield. Our upholsters have more than 40 years’ experience of creating luxurious handmade furniture and are particularly adept at the age old skill of deep buttoning, which is perhaps the defining characteristic of a Chesterfield.

You will recognise the meticulous attention to detail in the hand studding that is also a traditional feature of many Chesterfield designs.
