The 12ft Palmerstone Chesterfield Sofa – Rich Walnut
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 hand dyed rich walnut Chesterfield is ultra modern and stylish. The arms arch beautifully in almost celebratory fashion, pleading to be embraced. Made in our Manner 3 style (scroll down to our crafting menu for more information on crafting manners), this is a great sofa! The fully buttond back and arms are complimented beautifully by those splayed arms giving supreme elegance to the piece. The frame, as with all of our Signature pieces, is made from solid beechwood and the piece is filled with high quality cotton felt stuffing.
