Object History


Object Literature

Chesterfield sofas share a complex history, alongside the elite, the privileged and aristocrats. History reveals that these types of couches have been commonly used in the confines of old institutions, government buildings and luxurious homes for generations. A room, in the 1900’s, would not be complete, unless the master owns a Chesterfield sofa.

Every once in a while, a piece comes along that is so unreservedly and unapologetically kitsch that it somehow convinces us to revel in its own audacity; this is one of those.

Object Condition

The unabashed pink upholstery is late twentieth century, and in pretty good shape with some minor wear, and some very minor stains here and there. The sofa does not require any attention and is ready to use.
