About Fabric Chesterfield Sofa
Chesterfield suites have been a design favourite for decades. But like any trends, their look has changed along with the times. Once, a leather-stitched chesterfield sofa was the very last word in cool, while the 90s saw a surge of interest in crushed velvet models which would have looked right at home in Central Perk.
Fabric chesterfield sofas have appeared on shop floors in many different forms. Patchwork or checked patterns add an individual flair to a classic piece of furniture, while bold or bright colours can really update the look of a living room. Neutral coloured fabrics can be dressed up with contrasting cushions or throws, or juxtaposed against artistically decorated walls.
Old fashioned sofas can be given a new lease of life with a bit of re-upholstering in new fabric. Liberty prints are a perennial favourite of interior decorators, while iconic prints from the likes of Orla Keily and Biba are available in sofa-friendly rolls of fabric. Match your sofa with similar pieces of furniture, or clash them with a minimalist chair.
When choosing a second hand fabric chesterfield sofa, check that the stitching is still relatively tight, and make sure all the buttons are still attached where they should be. You should be able to request spools of thread in a similar colour to the sofa, as well as replacement buttons if need be.
Make sure you have a space to lay your sofa ? three seater chesterfields are usually around eight feet wide, while two-seaters are just under six feet.
