In the earlier times, it was only the elite class which could enjoy the comforts of this great piece of furniture, but today it is available for anybody and everybody who can afford it. In spite of being commonly used in every other home and office, the sofa still remains the epitome of class, style and luxury. To fit into the modern lifestyle, the sofa has changed a bit. It is less bulky nowadays. In fact, now it is even available in sets. One can easily add chairs with the sofa. Large mahogany wood tables go with them very well.
It is good to have most chairs be covered in leather. Sometimes the chesterfield may be covered with fabric clothes. However, for a long time there has been a change in color on the covering of the chesterfield chairs. Traditionally the common color used for covering the chairs was dark brown. The chairs for a long time have been known to be very expensive and hence they were meant for the rich people. Nowadays the chairs are considered affordable to many ordinary people. The chairs have legs that are made from carved wood. The base of the chairs is very wide with its taper being small in size and contains a rounded feet.
The Chesterfield sofa, however, has a somewhat uncertain history. This icon of the furniture world is widely thought to have been commissioned by, and consequently named in honor of, the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope, in the 18th century. Aside from being a much-admired politician and writer, the suave Earl was a known trendsetter. When the Earl requested a cabinetmaker to construct a piece of furniture that would allow a gentleman to sit upright in the utmost of comfort, thus was the inception of the Chesterfield sofa with its characteristic deep buttoned upholstery, rolled arms, equal back and arm height and nail head trim. There has never been any solid confirmation of this noble beginning. However, this namesake is certainly appropriate. Stanhope was a noted writer of letters to his illegitimate son, extolling all method of manners and morals. The Chesterfield sofa is certainly a refined and mannerly example of seating.
For generations, since the days of crafting, seating arrangements have been initiated in human society there have been several types of sofas and chairs that were popular and they still are. There are however changes that can be seen in the old styled sofas from the ones that are available now. Nevertheless, the basic aspect is always that of comfort and style.
