Sterling Chesterfield Chair in Red Antique leather
Characterised by his hand-rubbed antique leather, Sterling is our take on the traditional leather Chesterfield that was originally designed right here in Britain, and has since become a worldwide style icon. His most recognisable qualities include polished antique upholstery, which creates a truly opulent feel.
** Our Sterling is unlike any other antique hand rub Chesterfield you will find - as he comes with our exclusive S.W. James Signature Comfort Blend cushions and is hand finished by our team that have been making these Chesterfields since the 1970's. Each Sterling is a true one of a kind.

Allow us to introduce the esteemed business partner you’ve been searching for – our very own Sterling. Much like his name suggests, Sterling is a timeless S.W. James 1 seater Chesterfield of the first order. Majestic, with the reputation to match, Sterling boasts scroll arms and lavish proportions. Wrapped in polished, hand-rubbed antique leather that provides an authentic vintage look – along with a soft, natural feeling – and buffed using a wax pull-up to ensure gradual, natural aging, Sterling is one stock market investment you won’t regret.
Sterling’s scroll arms allow him to command a room, and his lustrous, hand-rubbed antique Red leather serves to ensure he’s never underdressed. Throughout history, Sterling’s elegant, curved Chesterfield design has been an essential addition to public houses, hotels, and businesses alike – with his immediately recognisable silhouette indicating premium quality. Sterling takes great pride in continuing this legacy today.
When he’s not bringing a masterly, vintage edge to your décor, you’ll find Sterling in the Big Smoke – shaking hands on multimillion pound corporate deals, with a cigar balanced deftly in his other hand, complemented by a single match Scotch whiskey on the table. And since each of our sofas are handmade by the S.W. James upholstery team, he stands unique – you’ll never meet the same Sterling.
Dreaming of the good old days? Inject an air of opulence into your home by investing in a universal talisman of traditional, refined British style today. And for a classic, cohesive look, why not partner Sterling with Clementine - our stunning Georgian wing chair?
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.
