Birdie Chair in Dark brown Vintage leather
100% made in England at our Manchester-based studio, but with classical French qualities, Birdie has spent many a summer in Paris with Polly – a fellow S. W. James chair dame. Her low-slung, Dark brown vintage leather rolled arms – complete with stud detailing and leather piping – are evocative of shoulders supporting weighty shopping bags, the result of hours spent traipsing the ChampsÉlysées.

100% made in England at our Manchester-based studio, but with classical French qualities, Birdie has spent many a summer in Paris with Polly – a fellow S. W. James 1 seater dame. Her low-slung, Dark brown vintage leather rolled arms – complete with stud detailing and leather piping – are evocative of shoulders supporting weighty shopping bags, the result of hours spent traipsing the ChampsÉlysées.
Birdie’s devotion to being ever en vogue is demonstrated by her premium quality S.W. James vintage leather upholstery – the authentic feel and worn-in texture of which resemble her wellused passport, a document close to her heart for its facilitation of many a trip to the Continent.
Her soft, supple exterior encases deep-seat cushions that’ve been injected with S.W. James’ signature comfort blend of layered foam, pocketed fibre, and Dacron fabric. When she’s not jetting off to the home of Yves Saint Laurent and Coco Chanel, Birdie makes the perfect addition to a home that’s longing for an air of chic. Her trademark French design, combined with masterful English craftmanship, mean she’s perfect for both minimal style and making a statement. What we me to say is, in both her design and temperament, Birdie’s happy to sit atop her wooden and antique brass-mix, expertly tapered legs, centre-stage underneath a bay window… or artfully accenting a low-light corner of your room.
Here at S.W. James, infusing luxurious comfort into our Chesterfields and sofas has always been our most important goal. You’ll be pleased to know we’ve succeeded in creating the most comfortable and sumptuous Chesterfields you will find. ...In fact, we’re proud to say we are The Home of the Comfortable Chesterfield.
Our journey to supreme comfort:
The journey hasn’t been easy, but the end result is something truly special – you’d be surprised just how far a dream, dedication, and a whole lot of foam and springs can take you! Now, our team takes pride in infusing our unique, special blend of comfort into each and every S.W. James Chesterfield and sofa that leaves our workshop.
All of our S.W. James products are made perfect with our signature blend of soft, squidgy foam cushioning as standard. Over the years, we’ve taken the time to perfect our exclusive filling to create a plush, ample seat – carefully blended to last a lifetime.
So, how do we infuse the comfort?
1 - Comfort to the core
It’s no secret that strength and great character call for strong foundations, and it’s the same for Chesterfield sofas. For a first-rate piece of furniture that will seat your family through generations, it’s important to know that your Chesterfield is quality to the core.
In addition to a solid oak, kiln-dried frame that’s been dowelled and stapled for maximum strength, each one of our Chesterfields is bolstered with a sprung base. Working together with the frame, the sprung base provides supreme comfort as well as support. Elsewhere in the industry, these are often charged as an optional extra, but the S.W. James team doesn’t believe in doing things by halves, so you can trust all our sofas boast a customary sprung base.
2 - Plush, padded cushions
As we mentioned above, we’ve worked alongside our expert design team to create a unique comfort cushion blend that’s exclusive to S.W. James. Throughout our process of creating the perfect cushioning, we chose to emphasise two factors – comfort and durability.
The result? Our signature S.W. James comfort blend cushions have three separate layers of comfort. While this careful balance of firmness and flexibility is a closely guarded company secret, we promise our unique combination of springs and multilevel cushioning work together to provide supreme relaxation.
3 - Packing a punch
Sometimes more truly is well… more. At S.W. James, we add a little extra to all of our sofas for maximum quality. From each individual arm, right across the length of the back, each handmade S.W. James Chesterfield and sofa has been imbued with generous amounts of foam for premium comfort and increased support. The finished product isn’t just lovely and comfortable to relax on – it’s also a much more grand addition to your interiors, with a solid, regal stature.
