There's something intrinsically luxurious and old fashioned about a chesterfield. All that tufting! Those curved arms! There's just so much to love, which is probably why the chesterfield has remained a furniture classic decade after decade. We rounded up 12 options of the sofa silhouette for every budget, from low to high.
Note: Many of these come in a variety of sizes, fabrics and colors so explore until you find the chesterfield of your dreams.
A deep green velvet option in a modern silhouette adds a fresh twist to the classic style. Also available in sapphire blue and light gray.
The most budget-friendly option on our list, the classic color and shape would fit into just about any decor scheme, and with a 4.5-star average customer rating, you can't go wrong.
From Interior Define, the Ms. Chesterfield is a sexy new take on a classic. Designed by our very own Maxwell Ryan, it's available in 64 textiles with 18 leg options in nine lengths (74" through 106").

At 94" wide, there's plenty of room on the Canal sofa for guests, napping and Netflix bingeing. The gray shown here is a nice neutral option, though you can jazz things up a bit with the available blue color way, as well.
Three sizes and dozens of color and fabric options let you tinker away until you have just the sofa you want.
Chesterfields have a reputation for not being the most comfortable, lounge-y sofas on the market as the back is perfectly upright, but Rogers+Chris added a slight angle to the back rest to solve this issue. Plus, they get a thumbs up from us for being made in the USA.
The SoHo made our list for a few reasons: its single cushion eliminates that awkward "sitting in the cushion crack" dilemma, it comes in 4 sizes (up to 118"!) and has wider tufting than some of the other sofas on our list.
Good luck deciding on one of the Lyre's 19 available colors; they're all so luscious and rich! Coming in at 100" wide and 41" deep, this beauty is definitely for a larger living or sitting room, but offers plenty surface area for snuggling and lounging.

The Chadwick isn't technically a chesterfield, as its arms are lower than its back. However, its a great choice if you love the chesterfield style but are looking for a more traditional silhouette.
This chesterfield from Restoration Hardware feels plucked straight from an uberchic flat in Milan. And because white linen isn't for everyone, chose from a plethora of fabric textures and colors. The sofa shown here is quite long, but it's available in a variety of sizes (from petite to rather grande).
Four reasons to love this sofa: it offers 13 leather colors (with free swatches), a lifetime warranty, free shipping and delivery, and is made free of harmful chemicals.
This handcrafted chesterfield has a hardwood frame made in the USA, multiple support rails, reinforced corner blocks, mortise-and-tenon joinery, and suspended coil systems, so its sure to last and last.
