Palmerston Chesterfield: Cream Linen Fabric

British Prime Minister 1859-1865


The Palmerston is a very beautiful and stylish Chesterfield design with a stunning splayed arm.


The design lends its name from Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston. Popularly nicknamed “Pam,” or “The Mongoose”, he was in government office almost continuously from 1807 until his death in 1865, beginning his parliamentary career as a Tory and concluding it as a Liberal. He is best remembered for his direction of British foreign policy through a period when Britain was at the height of its power, serving terms as both Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister. Some of his aggressive actions, now sometimes termed liberal interventionist, were greatly controversial at the time, and remain so today. He was the most recent British Prime Minister to die in office…


Palmerston’s Chesterfield is grand, demanding and characterising… it’s more than just a sofa. The Palmerston it a piece of art, a ‘different’ style of Chesterfield.


This particular Palmerston Chesterfield sofa was upholstered in a beautiful Jane Churchill cream linen with a flat back and seat. The lovingly splayed arms on this linen Chesterfield sofa were particularly graceful and stylish. The coil sprung seat in this Manner 3 (scroll down for more information on our crafting manners) meant that it also offered mattress like comfort. The turned legs with the brass caster really defined the piece’s feminine touch.
