Returning to the chester sofa, as you well know, it is distinguished by its leather upholstery in capitonné, dotted with buttons, and its backrest at the same height as the arms. Among the theories circulating about the historical origin of this English icon, its relationship with Philip Dormer Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, is often repeated, which would explain its name. According to the story, this English intellectual, patron of Voltaire, commissioned a cabinetmaker to make it. Its structure is due to his interest in having his staff sit upright.

Whether this story is true or not, what seems to be agreed upon is the aristocratic past of the chester, which was initially used in exclusive London high society clubs reserved, of course, for gentlemen. Soon after, this sofa, which dates back to the 19th century, began to “dress” high class English salons until it became part of the decoration. Today its presence continues to go unnoticed.
