Sometime in the mid-18th century the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Stanhope, commissioned a new type of sofa. The resulting design, known for its trademark button tufting and rolled arms, has endured throughout the centuries, with variations making appearances in gentlemen’s’ clubs, fancy English homes, and maybe even your own living room.

Given that the Chesterfield is still relevant almost 300 years later, the design deserves to be called a timeless classic…but that doesn’t have to mean it’s still clubby or stuffy. Interior Define’s Ms. Chesterfield Collection, which was designed in collaboration with our very own Maxwell Ryan, is an updated riff on the original that takes it to new heights.

The Ms. Chesterfield Collection includes pieces featuring all the beautiful cozy tufting, with a streamlined design that works in smaller spaces and complements modern design. Take, for instance, these adorable accent chairs, which combine a touch of old-world class with a modern silhouette and will fit into any space, however small.

The collection also includes sofas, sectionals, and ottomans that bring together the best of old and new. And the best part? They’re all fully customizable. Looking for something in classic leather? No problem. Or perhaps a more kid and pet-friendly sofa in a performance textured fabric? They’ve got that too. Interior Define lets you choose your favorite design, then customize it to fit your specific needs.

Interior Define’s Guideshops are the best place to see all of their Chesterfield sofas (and more designs!) in person, but you can also fully-customize and order online with free delivery and a 365-day return policy. That way, you can see them IRL and IYS (that is, in your space) without worrying about a mismatch.
