design inspiration: chesterfield sofas

The color of this couch is exactly what we want. Love the eclectic styling here.
Chris and I are currently doing some serious couch hunting. We need a new couch desperately. Since our two dogs practically live on the couch, buying a leather sofa is non-negotiable.

Who would’ve though a Chesterfield would look so good in a Scandinavian style home? Further proof of its versatility.
Choosing a couch style was hard, but we knew for sure that we did not want the typical plushy, oversized styles that flood the market. We decided a Chesterfield sofa in a caramel or tobacco color (like the one pictured above) matched both of our preferences.

The perfect marriage of dark, moody modern with classic elegance.
Chesterfields are traditional style sofas with masculine elements and classic details like rolled arms, nail head trim and tufting. It’s the streamlined, sophisticated version of those awful “puffy” couches. We both like well-worn vintage items and a Chesterfield will fit the best with our eclectic home.

I love the French rustic feel happening here.

But right now, it feels like we’ve exhausted every possible resource. I don’t know where else to look for an affordable couch. So, for the time being, I’m going to drool over these beautifully styled living rooms with Chesterfield sofas and glean inspiration.

Here, a more traditional pairing with a Chesterfield style chair, is balanced with a mid-century style coffee table and bohemian rug.

The Chesterfield style is so versatile. Here it’s mixed with mid-century elements in utter harmony.
