Comfort as standard

creating a truly comfortable chesterfield

Infusing luxury and comfort into our Chesterfields and sofas is our most important goal. We aim to create the most comfortable and sumptuous sofas you will find.

At S.W. James, comfort comes as standard.

Our standard filling

Signature Comfort Blend

Every S.W. James comes with our signature comfort blend cushioning as standard. Using only the finest foams, dacron and textures, our exclusive filling has been perfected over the years to create an incredibly comfortable sit.

Blended to last a lifetime, our signature blend cushioning actually improves with time as it matures.

Classic Cushioning

Duck feather filling

On selected lines we offer 100% duck feather filling, to create an authentic more classical sit. Requiring the odd "plump up", our feather cushions are firmer than our foam options - but offer great support and longevity.

Should you want full duck feather cushions on your new S.W. James we can add them for a small charge. Don't hesitate to ask and we can include them for you.

Serpentine springs

Sprung base as standard

Every S.W. James is built using serpentine springs attached to our solid hardwood frames that provide the underpinnings to our incredible comfort.

Covered in a unique upholstered finish for a touch of personal class, our sprung bases set the foundations for your seating experience and when combined with out signature blend cushions are very very comfortable.

Our 'Super sprung' bases are included as standard on flag ship Chesterfield Huxley, but are available on other models in our range - please call or email for more information.



Comfort starts with the framework

Sprung Base

Every S.W. James comes with a sprung base as standard. Connected to our solid hardwood frame, these 2 elements underpin the comfort in all S.W. James sofas and chesterfields.

Often charged as an optional extra elsewhere in the market - at S.W. James they are standard.

Comfy Cushioning

The Softest Cushions

As standard, our range of sofas, chairs and chesterfields come with our signature comfort blend of cushions. We use a sumptuous blend of foam layers and dacron textures to make what we believe are the finest cushions around.

Comfort as standard, that will also last a lifetime.

A little extra

Oversized to Pack More In

Each S.W. James we hand make has more generous amounts of foam added on the arms and back, making them not just lovely and comfortable to relax on, but also grander and more sumptuous than any standard Chesterfield or sofa.

Not convinced?


We know comfort can be subjective, and people have different tastes.

As a result, if you would like to come and try one of our chesterfields before you decide to buy, please contact us to organise a visit.
