It’s no secret that we take sofas seriously. We’ve researched and tested sofas of all types, from the affordable and small-space friendly to the extra large and ultra cozy. And when we know about a sofa that combines style, comfort, and quality, we can’t just keep it to ourselves. Enter the Ms. Chesterfield, which was designed by our very own Founder & CEO Maxwell Ryan for Interior Define.

A modern update to the classic Chesterfield sofa, the Ms. Chesterfield has the same signature tufting without the heavy, ultra masculine shape. No cushions are necessary, so you can really stretch out and relax—but we definitely recommend adding some cozy throw pillows to make it even more inviting. Like all of Interior Define’s options, this sofa is totally customizable, with 55 fabrics (plus leather!) and 20 leg styles to choose from. If you’re feeling indecisive, you can order up to ten free fabric swatches to feel and see for yourself. Once you decide, there’s a 100-day return policy, 10-year warranty, and unlimited furniture delivery.

Love the design but don’t need a sofa? The Ms. Chesterfield is also available as a sectional, accent chair, and ottoman. And if you’re looking for something with a deeper seat and lower profile, don’t forget to check out the popular Maxwell sofa as well. If you’re ready to buy, take note that starting August 23, Interior Define will be offering 15 percent off everything—including sofas!

To help you visualize your own Ms. Chesterfield sofa, we rounded up some of our favorite examples of the Ms. Chesterfield in the wild. Although it’s definitely a distinctive statement piece, it’s also pretty versatile and can work with many different styles. Check them out below and see for yourself.

If your style is clean and sophisticated, look no further than Lee Motayed Mayer’s space for inspiration. The CEO of interior design site Havenly chose to upholster her Ms. Chesterfield in a dark blue cloth fabric for a classic feel. Paired with the gold accents, white decor, and cozy knits, the entire space feels totally fresh and inviting.

Who can deny the appeal of a tan leather sofa? Megan Schlachtenhaufen of Undecorated Home opted for the leather Ms. Chesterfield sectional, and it’s everything our boho dreams are made of. Comfortable and classic, this seriously inviting look is perfect for movie nights and lazy mornings reading the paper.

For a much moodier style, you can’t go wrong with dark velvet. The mother-daughter duo behind design firm DahliasDay Interiors chose to upholster the Ms. Chesterfield in a dramatic gray velvet, turning the sofa into a gorgeously luxe statement piece. The brown and green accents throughout the rest of the room keep the vibe warm and down-to-earth, while making sure all eyes stay on the sofa.

Keep things organic and casual with a clean white linen paired with earthy decor. White furniture can feel like a risk if you have kids or pets, but the effect is worth it: calm, laidback, and anything but boring. The Ms. Chesterfield in white fits in with just about any style, but we love how the Hommeboys turned into into the perfect complementary piece for a nature-inspired haven.

Velvet is always a good choice for upping the drama, but there’s something about blue velvet that feels a tad more relaxed (in the best way). Alina Tsvor chose the corner sectional version of the Ms. Chesterfield, turning her space into the ideal spot for both afternoon naps and entertaining. The plants and minimal accessories surrounding the sofa (plus that neon sign!) prove that the Ms. Chesterfield is anything but traditional.
