Ask me what my favourite style of sofa is and the first thing that always pops into my head is CHESTERFIELD! I know I’ll never find a vintage one around these parts so buying new is the only way I have a chance of getting my hands on one, and now I have a great source for this classic style. British furniture and interiors company is known for its creative collections including distinctive handcrafted leather furniture, unique lighting and home accessories. Exuding the perfect balance of tradition and modernity, each piece is pervaded by a passion for traditional handcraftsmanship and a fearless quest for innovation. They take what is typically thought of as traditional and make it relevant for today. “Be relevant or be dead” – Tim Oulton 🙂
Let me give you a little taste of what the Timothy Outlon brand has to offer in the realm of chesterfield sofas:
These give me heart palpitations. That tufting! The worn, vintage look of the leather. That curved arm. So hot!!!
DAMN it is so sexy in black! I should note they have an incredibly broad range of leathers and fabrics (for those who don’t do leather). I counted 7 black leathers! You’re bound to find your dream shade.
Not only do they have a huge range of materials, but sizes too. You can choose from a 1 seater, 2 seater, 2.5 seater, 3 seater, 4 seater and a footstool. That’s not all. The red leather chesterfield above is the that has an added touch of luxury in the form of plump down feather filled cushions. WHOA. If you want something with a bit of femininity, there is the that has a sweet curve at the front. Or if you want something less traditional and more modern, there is the that has narrower arms and the absence of any studs or piping. Looking for something with a glamourous edge? The comes in 4 vintage rug-like velvets – a modern take on faded grandeur. The variety of options are impressive.
Here are a few more photos of Timothy Oulton’s chesterfields in spaces he has designed and some that demonstrate his love of tufting.
