delicate hand studding, which are carefully applied by hand for the highest level of fi nish. These studs come in an array of colours from brass and silver to pewter and copper, each having different fi nishes and allowing you to decide on even the smallest of features on your Chesterfi eld. More contemporary Chesterfi elds have minimal


or no stud detailing, creating an unfussy and smooth fi nish with as little detail as possible. Beautifully combining the style of a traditional Chesterfi eld with the fi nish of something a little more modern, many contemporary Chesterfi elds feature piping detail along the edges for a touch of traditional style yet still retaining the clean and simple style that signify a high quality Chesterfi eld. From traditional styles with deep


buttoning and hand studding to contemporary designs with sleek and smooth lines, each authentic Chesterfi eld is just as beautiful as the next regardless of its style.
