A luxurious twist on classic tradition – our velvet Chesterfield sofas are the perfect choice for those searching for a softer finish and dreamlike comfort.

Silky and smooth to the touch, we only use traditional velvets with a short pile and high Martindale abrasion score. This is what gives our material its unique finish and long-lasting durability. From emerald green to deep apricot, we’ve curated our range in striking colours to suit any lounge or study. At Portabello, every velvet Chesterfield sofa is handmade by specialist artisans from our workshop in northern England, using only the finest materials. We’re proud to keep this British tradition alive and will continue to do so for years to come.

Our velvet Chesterfields are available as a two, three or four seater. Don’t forget that all of our sofas come with a 15-year guarantee and are delivered to your front door free of charge!

Are Velvet Chesterfields comfortable?

Velvet is one of the most comfortable upholstery fabrics, with a soft touch that makes for a comfortable Chesterfield sofa. Coupled with our generously filled cushions, velvet is an excellent choice for a comfortable Chesterfield sofa.

What kind of velvets are available?

We offer 3 types of velvet within our standard range. Each has been carefully selected for its softness and durability and has interwoven stain protection. Our Allure velvet is soft with a deep and sumptuous pile, this is a more traditional choice. Our Boutique velvet has a shorter pile which leads to a more modern aesthetic. Our Amalfi velvet is brimming with interwoven textural detail, making for a Chesterfield sofa that is luxurious, modern and refined.

Tell me more about stain protection

We use velvets which have stain protection woven into the fabric itself, making the material a practical choice for everyday life. The velvets are further finished with a stain resistant coating.

Do you have any other velvet fabrics available?

Apart from our standard range of Boutique, Allure and Amalfi, we can offer velvet fabrics from all of the UK's major fabric houses. If you have something specific in mind, get in touch and we'll be happy to discuss this with you.

Are your velvet Chesterfields handmade in the UK?

We build each velvet Chesterfield sofa by hand in our Lancashire workshop. Working like this allows us to meticulously control the manufacturing process, allowing us to guarantee high levels of quality and offer an unprecedented amount of customisation options.

Are your velvet Chesterfield sofas guaranteed?

Yes. Each Chesterfield sofa is guaranteed for 15 years. We are also proud of our aftersales support service which offers tailored advice if you have any issues with your sofa.

How should I care for a velvet Chesterfield?

Velvet can be tricky to clean as the deep pile can trap dust and dirt over time. The key to keeping a velvet Chesterfield in good condition is to lightly dust every month and vacuum the deep buttoning to remove any build-up of dirt. We also recommend keeping your velvet Chesterfield away from sources of heat and light as these can cause the colour to fade.

What customisations are available?

Whether you need to tweak the dimensions or add a unique finish to your velvet Chesterfield, we can do this for you. Our standard customisation options cover feet, stud detailing, piping and the bottom border. We always love a challenge though, so would be delighted to hear your ideas.

Are the cushions reversible?

Yes, we upholster all of the cushions on our velvet Chesterfields on both sides, making them reversible. We recommend flipping the cushions every 6-months.

After months of looking at cheap and nasty sofas in large stores I lost the will to live. I decided to browse the net and look for something of better quality that was affordable. Came across Portabello Interiors when browsing wayfair. Took the plunge and ordered a Milano 3 seater and 2 seater in charcoal. Also ordered a matching footstool. The manufacture took around 6 weeks and the quality is absolutely superb. I highly recommend the products from this company, they are clearly built to last and are far superior to anything you will find lurking in the high street. Customer service excellent too.

We are extremely pleased with our Venetia sofas and scatter cushions. The whole process of buying them was straightforward and they were delivered in 9 weeks from ordering them which given Christmas and New Year was in this period was very good.
