Tillie’s large 1 seater handmade frame is exceptionally strong, with a comfortable seat base – built to survive decades of lazing, lolling, and luxuriating. To ensure this, the S.W. James design team opted for a solid hardwood frame that’s been carefully kiln-dried to remove all moisture – preventing cracking and warping in the years to come, and promising a long life. When you choose Tillie for your home, you’ll gain a dependable, devoted friend.

As suggested by her hardwood roots, Tillie is a seaside regular – demonstrated further by her S.W. James worn Dark brown vintage leather upholstery, which offers a slightly weather-beaten, beautifully rugged look. Like all of our S.W. James leather, Tillie’s exterior is superbly soft and supple – the perfect finish to our signature thick, three-layer cushioned filling, designed for maximum comfort.

Whether she’s combing the shore looking for shells, or at one with the waves, Tillie’s free-spirited 1 seater nature means she’s incredibly low maintenance, and her cushions rarely need plumping as a result.

If like Tillie, you spend your spare time rambling, wandering, or strolling, then this S.W. James sofa is perfect for flopping into after an eventful day. Her ample, plush cushions overflow into her low, pleated arms – which have been completed with hand-studding on the sides to create the mark of a classic sofa. Finally, the S.W. James design team has rounded off her lived-in, vintage look with delicate, twinning stitching and leather piping to match her quality, hand-turned wooden legs – with polished antique casters. 

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.
