Perfectly crafted chesterfields built in the UK

Chesterfields created just for the Kids

the story of how our children’s Chesterfield sofas were born

One evening George and I were reading our bed time story when George decided that he was no longer interested in his book and instead wanted to talk to me about redesigning his bedroom to ensure that it looked cool when his friends come round to play.

The Idea was Born

introducing the s.w.jnr’s – childrens sofas

Its not unusual for George to break away from what he is supposed to be doing at five years of age I guess its your prerogative to want to do anything other than what you are supposed to do. Normally an exhausted and rather impatient No would follow his request for a diversion, however this evening I was intrigued, so I let his imagination run wild.

The Lightbulb Moment

All little boys want to be like their Daddy

Like a bolt of lightening I realised that he is really just a Mini me and wants the same things that I want.  Straight away I could imagine how a scaled down version would look and I just knew we had to make one.

When I called the design team the next day, the brief was simple – Find a way to make the S.W. Jnr’s exactly the same in every respect as our full size S.W. James Chesterfields.
