The Chesterfield sofa is much more than a piece of furniture. It’s an icon of British craftsmanship.

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

Today, we are proud to keep this British tradition alive from our workshop in Blackburn, England. Meticulously tailored to the classic design with opulent scrolling arms, deep buttoning and mahogany feet, each of our handmade Chesterfield sofas offers a unique take on a timeless masterpiece.

Named after Stanhope’s birth year, our 1694 range covers every taste and colour palette. Whether it’s velvet, weave, fabric or one of our classic leathers, you can rest assured that each piece is built for all-day comfort without any compromise on style.

Are Chesterfield sofas comfortable?

We're sure you'll agree that our Chesterfields are beautiful - but they also offer exceptional comfort. We use high density reflex-foam as standard which maintains its shape well and provides a luxurious level of comfort.

What finance options are available?

Interest free finance is available with DivideBuy. Payments can be spread over 3, 6 or 12 months. Simply select 'Pay with DivideBuy' at checkout.

How long do Chesterfield sofas take to make and deliver?

We make all of our Chesterfield sofas to order in our UK workshop, which means that delivery does take longer than off-the-shelf products. It currently takes us 5-6 weeks to build a Chesterfield sofa. Our delivery partner will then need 7-14 days to book-in and deliver to you. This means that from order to delivery, it will take between 6 and 8 weeks to receive your new Chesterfield.

What customisation options are available?

As all of our Chesterfield sofas are made to order, an infinite number of customisations are available. From sizes, to fabrics and leathers, to feet and finishing details - all of our Chesterfield sofas can be customised to meet your bespoke requirements.

What is the guarentee on Chesterfield sofas?

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

How do I care for a Chesterfield sofa?

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

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's 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

We found Portabello 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. Build and leather quality (sofa) are excellent. Thank you.

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 and it came within 5 weeks! Adam sent us samples and was very helpful in helping us decide 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%!
