What Houzz contributors are saying:

Scheer & Co. added this to 7 Sofas With a Story
One of my personal favorites, the Chesterfield, is a deep buttoned sofa, with arms and back of the same height, usually made of leather. Chesterfield sofas evoke dark, gentlemanly smoking rooms of the 1900s, but can look fresh in less traditional settings — and in highly colorful ones, as architect James Crisp proves here. More: How to Choose the Right Sofa Browse: Find sofas in the Products section
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to A Study in the Classics: The Chesterfield Sofa
In its most popular setting, a Chesterfield sofa sits handsomely in a library. Outfitted in a rugged distressed leather, its form still remains both stately and proper.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Get More Bang From Your Bookcase
It may seem like a small detail, but lighting can make or break any room. Don't settle for shelves that fade into the background when gorgeous bookcase lights can not only add to the décor of the room but also illuminate your reading collection. Plus, any avid reader knows that good light is essential to curling up with a book.
