i heart chesterfield sofas....





last weekend, my mother-in-law and i were in an antique shop and there was an old leather chesterfield sofa hidden in the back of the store. i ran over to it and said "i adore these sofas" and gayle was shocked! i think she thought i had lost my mind b/c all she saw was a lot of tufting and some ratty old leather.....but gayle, here are some perfect examples of the updated chesterfield that i would love to have sitting in my house!! i love them in white with nail head trim and how can you not adore windsor smith's feminine take on it, the chloe sofa?? i am on the hunt for one of these at my local thrift stops (which by the way, i haven't visited in over two weeks...remember i am trying to stop shopping for a while)!
*oh, but don't think i don't love the old ones too; i think that the antique leather one we saw would look divine in a house w/ a great library or man room....unfortunately, we have neither.

They are amazing. I love all the tufts! I have something similar in my garage. It was an old piece with a curved wood back and horrible old gold fabric. I'm waiting for the day that I have the money to paint the wood white and and get it upholstered in a chocolate brown fabric.

It amazes me how popular the Chesterfield sofa still is. There are so many designs available like the union jack chesterfield sofa. Although I like this design, I am not that patriotic so I stick to the vintage style.

I love them too, but they are quite expensive. I have heard there is a warehouse somewhere where I can buy them second hand. Does anyone know about it?

I put the heart back into them.....
