“Chesterfield Sofa”, which takes its name from Phillip Stanhope, the fourth Earl of Chesterfield in the 18th century. It is also known as the gentleman’s sofa because the shallower depth of entry and low backrest not only restrains the gentleman’s sitting posture but also minimizes the wrinkles produced when clothes and sofa come into contact. At the same time, the backrest as high as the armrests, can make the gentleman’s arms, showing the most comfortable and elegant state. The sofa’s back and armrests are rounded with a rolled shape instead of all the angles and decorations.
