Place a piece of history in your living room: the Chester

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word “chesterfield” was already used in England in the 1800s to describe a leather couch. It is believed that Lord Phillip Stanhope, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield (1694-1773), commissioned the first leather chesterfield, mostly known as “Chester” sofa.


The original purpose of this symbol of elegance was to allow a gentleman to sit upright without wrinkling their garments. So, the Chester has remained as a mannerly way of siting. He went from the finest English clubs to the homes of the wealthy families and continued to evolve until today.


It could not be otherwise: at Maranda Furniture you can find this piece of history ready to be moved to your living room.
