1 – Note down the size specifications of your new S.W. James.

These details can be found on the product page and throughout the online order process. The details will also be emailed to you when you complete your order.

Each product on the website has an illustration to show you width (arm to arm), height (floor to top of back), and depth (front to back). By using these details you will be able to measure the space in your home and work out if your new S.W. James will be a good fit.

2 – Measure your home

The next step will be to make sure your new S.W. James is going to fit snuggly in your home so it’s time to get the measuring tape out! Work through the dimensions of the S.W. James taken from our website (or order email). We have found a simple way to picture how your S.W. James will look in your room is to mark out the footprint of the Chesterfield using masking tape or pieces of paper.

3 – Small home / apartment

If you think you might have a challenge fitting a standard S.W. James into your home, please take a look at our S.W. James No. 5 Chesterfield. No. 5 has been deliberately designed and sized a little smaller all round for apartment lifestyles.
