FAQ Frequently asked questions to Mister Chesterfield

On this FAQ page you can find the most frequently asked questions to Mister Chesterfield. Our answers are based on our many years of experience, which we have gained for three generations.

QUESTION: What is an original Chesterfield?
ANSWER: Chesterfield is not a one factory brand as many people think. Due to the legal aspect, a piece of furniture as an (old) design is almost impossible to register as a patent. Chesterfield is more of a public original. You buy a Chesterfield as a style but that says nothing about the country where the furniture is made or the quality. See also our About Chesterfields page

QUESTION: Does Mister Chesterfield (the publicly known) sell original English Chesterfields?
ANSWER: Mister Chesterfield believes that we provide as original as possible Chesterfield. Together with the comfort, which was not always so good, this is the main reason why we started our own label in 2006. As restorers of origin, we know how the furniture is offered in this style. We can simply be transparent about our products and therefore always declare in black and white the country where the furniture is manufactured and all materials used that cannot be seen from the outside. Slightly stronger frames, better suspension and fillings are part of this. Sitting comfortably, also in the long term is important. See also our About Chesterfields page
