Sterling Chesterfield Chair in Red Antique leather

Characterised by his majestic size and 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 his wide-scroll arms and lavish chair proportions –in addition to his polished antique upholstery, which creates a truly opulent feel in any home.

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 in size, with the reputation to match, Sterling boasts wide-scroll arms and lavish three-seat 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 wide-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?
