Chesterfield sofas, once you’ve settled on a model and bought, are very easy to style. These five ideas should help you make great interior design decisions, quickly.
1. Use Modern Color Schemes
Styling Chesterfields is all about creativity. You can place it in a room filled with modern art pieces and furniture and guess what – the sofa will fit right in!
You can place it in a living room designed to be cozy and relaxed, and the Chesterfield will yet again effortlessly become a part of the flow of this space.
Similarly, the sofa will go just as well with loads of color schemes. Some would even be ready to bet that any color scheme you choose will go great with this traditional yet highly customizable couch.
To make a choice more manageable for you, here are some color schemes that go with the Chesterfield and the kind of vibe and effect they give off.
Bold colors: colors like teal, lime-green, matte-black, and canary yellow are bold colors. They give your room an artistic look and make the sofa genuinely stand out.
Textured colors: this type is ideal when designed according to a nature inspired look. Textured fabrics go great with blue or green colors and work best with plants or wooden furniture. All with the Chesterfield sofa, of course.
Pastel colors: help you create a soft vibe and give the bold and imposing Chesterfield a much softer feel. Light art themes, plants, and fur rugs would go well with this interior style.
White: shades of white mainly help create a warm and relaxing ambiance. They go great with golden furniture or golden decoration pieces/art designs.
Dark colors: including brown, black, and shades of grey. Naturally, these tones help create a formal and official look and highlight the power conveyed by the Chesterfield’s timeless silhouette.
2. Color Coordinate Your Chesterfield with The Walls
To create this look, the walls directly behind your sofa, in particular, should be painted the same color as the sofa. This makes it blend perfectly with the walls, the room, and the general theme for the space.
Next, you can style the rest of the place as contrastingly as you want. The artwork hung on that wall can be of any color or style; we guarantee that it will look just as good as it would on any other plain backdrop, if not more.
Furthermore, the other sofas, chairs, or tables that you will place in the living room to go with the Chesterfield can also be of different colors, styles, and fabrics. Essentially, it would be even more effective if the rest of the furniture is different.
Yes, things should match, but they don’t always have to… Differences in styles and types of furniture will only make your room look more unique.
Since we’ve discussed most of the furniture that should go in your living room, let’s touch base on the topic of cushions. While you can add cushions to your Chesterfield, you can also add them to the rest of the sofas or chairs. Afterall, a splash of color never hurt anyone!
There are several things you could do with the cushions. They could be of the same colors, or they could be random. Their designs could vary, or they can represent their very own theme. You could add them to one side of the sofa or place them in a specific pattern. The possibilities are endless!
3. Rug It Up!
Chesterfields have always maintained their reputation as traditional, historic masterpieces. Therefore, they look even better stripped back, placed on a wooden floor with a statement rug. If the carpet has a large pattern, your space can take inspiration from the Victorian era, bringing the historic significance of your Chesterfield to life. You could say this setting enhances the sofa’s true purpose and makes it shine even more than usual!
If the rug is of bold color, it can help you create a more modern look.
Another idea that a lot of people like is placing the sofa on the rug. Or just the front two legs, at least. This also gives a nice look.
So, all you have to do is decide which setting and style of rug would go best in your living room next to Chesterfield.
4. Add more wooden furniture
Is wooden flooring excellent for a Chesterfield sofa? Yes. Will added wooden furniture be even better for it. YES!
Think about it; the mere thought of the Chesterfield sofa conjures a picture of an elegant estate surrounded by woodland, with even more wooden furniture inside. Books scattered on the table and the sofa, the steam of hot coffee filling the air… absolutely gorgeous!
To bring this vibe to life right in your living room, you can add wooden items like a bookcase behind or near your sofa. Other accents could be a lamp or two by the Chesterfield or a wooden table in front of it.
A small wooden side table next to the couch would do too.
5. Floral Themes
This idea is quite the deal sealer for those with a green thumb. If you have a garden that you take care of yourself, you can pick your favorite flowers from there and place them near your Chesterfield sofa or on the tables around it.
And if you are just a regular fan of flowers (without the interest in gardening or growing plants), then you can pay your nearest flower shop a visit once or twice a week and get new flowers to maintain the elegant look of the floral-themed living room.
Other than real flowers sitting in a vase, the floral theme can also be created with floral designs on canvases, paintings, decoration pieces or even the Chesterfield itself. Most manufacturers cater to a vast range of customers and will hand select the best quality patterned materials each year.
Fluffy cushions in the room would also be an excellent addition. This whole combo of flower-filled ornaments to go with your Chesterfield can help you create a wonderfully delicate and sophisticated look in your living room or lounge.
