Walpole Chesterfield : Rich Plum Crushed Velvet sofa
British Prime Minister 1721-1742
The Walpole is a deep, chunky statement making this crushed Velvet sofa offering a great element of grandness to any room.
You may have gathered all our Signature pieces are names after 18th century Prime Ministers and Sir Robert Walpole was the perfect man for this perfect sofa. Walpole was in many senses a pioneer for a government led Great Britain. He was, essentially, the first ever British Prime Minister. Later known as the 1st Earl of Orford, Walpole is thought to have took lead of the country in 1721, however the date is disputed largely because the term ‘Prime Minister’ held no authority through law at that time. He continued to govern until his resignation in 1742, prompted by the Battle of Cartagena disaster, making his administration the longest in British history.
Our Walpole Chesterfield velvet sofa is a design that is equally as pioneering. The chunky frame and blunt angles creates a fantastic dynamic to the fantastic creative piece.
