The S.W. James Chesterfield range

Welcome to S.W James

“We love Chesterfields, so our goal was simple. Create a range of British handmade Chesterfields that we would love for our own homes”


We wanted to take all the features that have made the classic Chesterfield so famous and inject some fresh character and S.W. James personality. We have created a deeper, chunkier Chesterfield that is perfect to come home to after a long day, and we have made a more relaxed and comfortable Chesterfield, with our ‘super sprung’ base and sumptuous feather wrapped foam cushions, perfect for lounging on lazy days. We have even designed a slightly slimmer Chesterfield with the smaller home or apartment in mind.

Over time your S.W. James will come to feel like a great old companion and at the end of a long day we want you to look forward to coming home to your own luxurious personal retreat.

Our popular vintage leather range complements the warm and friendly personalities of our Chesterfields. The leather is hand distressed by our team before it is carefully applied to the Chesterfield, giving each piece we create its own unique character.

Chesterfields handmade in England

“Where possible we use beautiful, natural materials for our Chesterfields”


Such as; our incredibly heavy, solid oak, Kiln-dried frames, beautiful feathers and chunky, robust turned wooden feet with polished brass casters. We wanted every ingredient that goes into one of our Chesterfields to be something special. As a result, our Chesterfields will live with you for a lifetime.

All our Chesterfields are handmade by a seasoned team of master craftsmen and women. This team have been making Chesterfields for over 30 years and know how to build furniture in the time-honoured manner that will last a lifetime.

As we are a purely digital brand and we sell directly to our customers from our website. Rather than investing large amounts of money into running expensive shop fronts and sales teams, we have been able to focus on what is truly important – producing exceptionally high-quality, handmade British furniture at a price affordable to everyone.

We put our hearts and souls into creating the most authentic, beautiful Chesterfield furniture you will find.

We hope you agree.

S.W. James Co-Founder & Creative Lead.

Thank you Warren and your excellent team of craftsmen

When our sofa maker went bust we searched the internet and found SW James and asked whether they could help us with a Chesterfield sofa bed. The service we received was fantastic...they produced exactly the same sofa for us and even hand delivered it through an upstairs window and it is perfect! We would recommend this company to absolutely everybody we know. Thank you Warren and your excellent team of craftsmen.

Even better than expected

Warren called me as soon as I'd made my order on the site. He was really helpful and informative. I was impressed by his friendly and informed approach, he explained how the order was going to be made for me by hand and how the sofa will be delivered. The delivery team were excellent on the day of delivery and had my sofa in place really quickly. I simply love our new no2 sofa. This is my first Sw James and I'm so happy with it. I recommend this company. I will return again soon.

SW James are fantastic I cannot fault the service

SW James are fantastic I cannot fault the service I received from them. Warren is a Gent and goes that extra mile.

We had oiginally ordered from another company that subsequently went bust. Warren did everything he could to help us from our initial contact and custom made a piece to our specification. He kept in touch every step of the way.

I would never consider another company when buying a chesterfield. Beautiful, handcrafted furniture with faultless service. Thanks for everything

Great service from order to delivery

It is rare in this day and age to receive a quality of product as this ( 3 seater no. 10) with brilliant communication and a delivery team who overcame a tricky obstacle to get this into my home. Absolutely superb from start to finish.

Simply wonderful service and products. The highest of recommendations.

The company has consistently delivered high quality customer support through frequent communication informing me of the delivery and care of the products. They have also maintained a human feel through treating me as a Person and not another number. The quality of the furniture is wonderfully high and every visitor has commented on their finish and comfort. I would highly recommend this company and I hope to be ordering more from them in the future.

My experience of SW James was wonderful from beginning to end. Their customer service, obvious love of their products and dedication to their business was very apparent and made choosing and purchasing my sofas and the bespoke window seat cushion they designed and produced for me a joy. We are delighted with the Chesterfields and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SW James to anyone.

I can't recommend S W James highly enough

I can't recommend S W James highly enough. We've been absolutely delighted with the service from start to finish - professional, transparent and attentive. Warren was so helpful, and either on the end of the phone to answer questions, or would call back very quickly if we couldn't get hold of him straightaway. He made us feel like we were his only customer - not easy when you're as successful and busy as S W James are! Everything that has happened has done so exactly how and when they said it would, including making one of the sofas slightly smaller to fit the space. The customer service has been outstanding. The delivery team also exceeded expectations, and were polite, informed and handled our gorgeous new chesterfield sofas with care. The sofas themselves, and a matching footstool are unbelievably beautiful and comfortable. I can't stop looking at them!! And sitting on them!!! I looked at a lot of Chesterfields before buying, and these are by far the best I've seen. Thank you to Warren and all of the team.
