A vintage, rich brown leather Chesterfield sofa

LJW ANTIQUES
This lovely English Chesterfield sofa is likely to date to the mid-20th century, is a lovely rich brown that has aged well and lightened nicely along the front of the arms and seat. It comes with a deep buttoned seat which is, in my opinion, both more comfortable and visually appealing than examples with seperate seat cushions. The sofa sits on turned wooden feet at the front and square section wooden legs at the rear.

The sofa does show signs of ageing and use with scuffs visible to the leather on the back and sides and wear/cracking to the leather on the seat of the sofa - mainly to the left side (when facing the sofa) - this has been detailed as best as possible in the latter photographs. There is a slight dip to the middle of the sofa - though this actually makes it a little more comfortable and 'worn-in' feeling. The sofa could benefit from some restoration, or is suitable to enjoy as is - with a little more character and no need to worry about little scuffs/scratches etc!

In total the sofa is 2.09m wide x 70cm high x approx. 90cm deep. The seat of the sofa is 1.44m wide x 35.5cm high x 54cm deep.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 70cm (27.56in)
  • W: 209cm (82.28in)
  • D: 90cm (35.43in)

Period: 

1950s/'60s

I'm Louis Walpole.  Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London's renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques.  In 2016, after dabbling in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart (and ignoring the myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time.  Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me.  These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial.  I have a select number of items on display at Atlam on Portobello Road, London.  The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they are at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you.  It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home / bar / garage / pub etc, so they can be fully appreciated in-situ.  Again please just get in touch and we will see what can be organised.
