We cannot imagine a classic English living room without a Chesterfield sofa inside. Although most Chester sofas are leather there are also some that come out a bit of the norm as they are traditionally made of brown leather, but the velvety fabric looks fantastic to give a cozy touch to your classic living room. A way to slightly reinvent your English style interior.
But although the material of the sofa is different, the essence is the same as that of the classic canapés, with buttons that create a backrest and armrests full of class and distinction. Of course, these two elements (backrest and armrest) have the same height, another characteristic of the Chesterfield canapés.
The first time the Chester fabric sofa appeared was in the year 1830 where it was transformed into a sofa wider and more comfortable turn making it the first choice of the rich and famous.
In England, in the year 1930 became very popular mainly by the upper class since it symbolized elegance and status. It was among the most expensive fabric furniture.
If you want to give the color touch to the living room and break with the classic image of the Chester, you can opt for brightly colored pieces such as fuchsia, blue or red, thus breaking the monotony of rooms full of white and providing an aspect of sophistication to the stay.
If the style of your house is a classic, or even romantic chic, you can put a Chester chair in dark shades, or beige and nude so that they do not detonate too much, both in leather and velvet if you want to give a more modern touch. A pair of well-placed cushions will also give the necessary color touch to the living room.
On the other hand, if your house is more minimalist, you can choose a sofa in white or black to stand out from the rest of the decoration, you can even combine a two-seater sofa in white and another two or three squares in black. These colors can also look great in case your red is a predominant color. Combined with a table of straight lines and other decorative elements avant-garde, the bet is sure.
In the case of interiors decorated in an industrial style, the Chester sofa can become the center of the decoration. To choose it, you could opt for clear colors and above all, that bring some quality to the coldness of the rest of the room.
