The Chesterfield sofa is much more than a piece of furniture. It's a true classic of British craftsmanship and history.

Legend has it that Phillip Stanhope, the 3rd Earl of Chesterfield, commissioned the first low, deep-buttoned sofa design, with arms and back at equal height, in the early 1700s. The Chesterfield's classic look has since become a fixture in luxurious studies, parlours and lounges the world over, oozing sophistication and style.

Today, we are proud to keep this British tradition alive from our workshop in Blackburn, England. Named after Stanhope's birth year, our 1694 range is a nod to the original designs, while modern variations, like the Milano range, mean we have something to suit any room.

Whether it's velvet, weave, fabric, or one of our classic leather sofas, you can rest assured that each piece is built for all-day comfort without any compromise on quality or style.

Are your Chesterfield sofas comfortable?

Our Chesterfields offer exceptional comfort. We use high-density reflex foam as standard, which maintains its shape well and provides a cosy space to relax.

What finance options are available?

You can buy a Chesterfield sofa using interest-free finance. Payments can be spread over 3-12 months. Simply select 'Pay with DivideBuy' at checkout.

How long do your sofas take to make and deliver?

Our Chesterfield sofas are handmade to order in our UK workshop, which means that delivery does take longer than off-the-shelf products. The build time is currently 5-6 weeks, and then our delivery partner will need 7-14 days to book in and deliver to you. This means it will take between 6 and 8 weeks from order to delivery.

What customisation options are available?

As our sofas are made to order, an infinite number of customisations are available. From sizes to fabrics and leathers, to feet and finishing details, get in touch to discuss your bespoke requirements.

Do you offer a guarantee?

Our Chesterfield sofas are guaranteed for 15 years from the date of delivery. The guarantee covers the frame, the fillings and the material. If there is a problem with your sofa and you need to make a claim under your guarantee, we will either offer you a repair or a full replacement.

How do I care for Chesterfield furniture?

We recommend dusting the sofa every month and lightly vacuuming the buttons to ensure they’re kept free from dust.

Very pleased with my dealings with Portabello, my furniture was ready on the date it was promised & delivered as soon as possible. The sofas I ordered were stunning, thank you.

I bought a 3-seater Milano sofa over a year ago, and it's still in great shape! The Mrs wanted velvet, and to be fair, even with this material, it stood up to a busy household with plenty of visitors. Looks just as good today as when we first bought it. Would highly recommend this company.


⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ( 5 )

We found Portabello's service to be genuinely exceptional - I can't think of many other purchases where we've had such a good engagement from start to finish. They really did go out of their way to make sure we got the product we wanted. The build and leather quality (sofa) are excellent. Thank you.

Absolutely delighted with our beautiful bespoke leather Venetia sofa and scatter cushions. It looks divine, feels really comfortable, and the quality is superb. Fantastic customer service from start to finish and a friendly delivery team. High quality product and high quality service. Great experience.

Mrs Ward

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ( 5 )

I had brilliant customer service from Adam. He sent additional big samples of material to help me choose the colour of my sofa and held the purchase until I was able to have it delivered. As I am due to receive the sofa this coming week, I can’t comment at this stage on its quality or the efficiency of the delivery. I can say that it was a pleasure buying from this company.

Great company with quality products. We ordered the Milano 4 seater in the boutique bottle green, and it came within five weeks! Adam sent us samples and was very helpful in helping us decide on our lovely Chesterfield. We have had many Chesterfields over the years, but the finishing has not been as good as this one! The Mrs loves it, and we couldn’t recommend Portabello enough! Thank you, guys!

We love our new sofa! It came faster than planned, by a week, which is amazing! We had a little hiccup with the legs of the sofa; we received 4 (slightly damaged ones) by mistake instead of 6 (for a 4 seater). Adam from Customer Service was very kind, and he arranged a new delivery of the correct sofa legs. We recommend Portabello 100%!
