History of the Chesterfield sofa

The Chesterfield sofa has a rich and interesting history which has lead to it's iconic status.

Most likely commissioned for Chesterfield House which was one of the most splendid and magnificent mid-eighteenth-century houses in London.  It was built by one of the most fascinating men of his time, the 4th Earl of Chesterfield, a politician and diplomat, wit and letter-writer.  His house stood on an unusually large plot and was the first large house to face the park.  Its front extended almost from Audley Square to Curzon Street.
