About Mister Chesterfield
About Mister Chesterfield, who we are and the history of our company
In about Mister Chesterfield we tell you about who we are and the history of our company. Our passion for this furniture is our biggest reason to setup our own label. Therefore our brand and trade-name is more than just another supplier on the market. When you experience our shop, you will discover that it is so much more than just the furniture in this style.
In 1945, just after the 2nd World War, my grandfather started to restore traditional seating furniture in the traditional way. This work was carried out using traditional materials such as crin, horsehair, bone glue, polish etc. Through this work, the love for furniture grew with a distinctive and, above all, unique appearance. In addition to the Chesterfields, he had a weakness for furniture from the 1920s. Later he developed himself further by designing and realizing his own furniture line. This was made entirely from the frame in-house and fortunately we have some of his items in our private collection. Indestructible!
Since 1958 my father has continued to work on these developments in the company. He is an idolat of his profession and full of interest in everything related to this profession. The traditional way of upholstering gives him the most satisfaction. He has worked for very reputable antique dealers and trade fairs. He still daily with his passion and he has of course a lot of experience. I really appreciate it.
Since 1992 I have been mainly occupied with restoring and restoring furniture. Partly due to my education in fine-woodworking, furniture upholstery, I have a good eye for beautiful and durable materials. Restoring beautiful old Chesterfields is still one of the most beautiful aspects of this profession. You give a beautiful, often intensively used product a longer life. This piece of craft gives me relaxation in a hectic society. The enthusiasm of the owner makes this course a lot of fun. People quickly notice that this is my passion. There are many prejudices in the world because of improperly built Chesterfields and I prove with our label that a Chesterfield is still well built and comfortable. In my profession, my perfectionism comes in handy.
