There are few items of antique furniture or indeed contemporary furniture that compare with the leather sofa for style and comfort. Here you can choose from a range of carefully-selected antique and contemporary period style leather sofas suitable for daily use in the home, office, or in a commercial setting such as an office, a hotel, a bar, or perhaps a restaurant.
It’s a fact that fine quality leather upholstery has a character and quality feel about it that simply cannot be found in any other material and, if well cared for, these sofas can last for many years, getting more and more attractive the older they get, as the leather develops that lovely “worn in” look.
If you see the sofa you desire then rest assured that we can pack and ship it to your destination anywhere in the world. Please contact us for a shipping quote first however, as this can add significantly to the overall cost as these antique leather sofas are frequently bulky and heavy with very solid wooden frames.
Fancy a Sumptuous Chesterfield?
The Chesterfield sofa is certainly popular and examples can often be found in hotel lobbies, lounges, and in a host of other public and private places. This timeless design is usually attributed to one Philip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield who is purported to have come up with the idea for the Chesterfield sofa back in the 17th century. In fact, it is highly likely that the design back then bears little resemblance to what is described as a Chesterfield today. In fact, almost any sofa may well have been referred to as a Chesterfield, it being a generic term applied regardless of the actual design. In truth, it is not well-documented and we don’t really know for sure but it’s a nice story so we will stick with it for now.
By visiting this category of our website you will see examples of Chesterfield sofas, including both antique and contemporary pieces in a choice of different style sand finishes, however the leather Chesterfield is still the option that most people seek. The more practical among you will be pleased to find that we often offer a Chesterfield bed settee option as well.
Even Chippendale Has Something to Say About Leather Sofas

These high-backed designs are a mainstay in traditional venues such as gentlemen's clubs, golf clubs and the lounges of those better quality hotels where someone opens the door for you.
Offering the ultimate in both style and comfort, these leather armchairs and leather sofas are a must have for those venues who need to offer the ultimate in class whereas they also have much to offer the homeowner, especially those who live in a period home or were the decor is more traditional.
