A Design Classic


For over a hundred years the traditional English made Chesterfi eld has been a sign of quality and a design classic often afforded by only the most discerning wealthy clients throughout the early 19th and 20th century. Here at Chesterfi elds Direct we strive to


supply our extensive range of Chesterfi elds along with a larger selection of traditional handmade English furniture direct to the public at trade prices. Mike Lester the founder and owner


of the company came from humble beginnings in Lancashire. On leaving school he served his apprenticeship alongside timed served craftsmen and learnt every aspect of furniture manufacture and later being involved in the design and development of the Chesterfi eld which is refl ected in the unique designs he now showcases in his Lancashire factory/showroom. After gaining many years experience in his craft in some of Lancashire’s


fi nest Chesterfi eld producing factories, Chesterfi elds Direct was launched starting life in an old farm workshop in a small Lancashire village called Whitworth. After many years of expanding and


moving to larger premises the company now owns a former cotton mill which has been lovingly restored and is an ideal venue to showcase the furniture. Mike commented “Through thick and


thin we have stayed with our craft and not moved into the mass produced or imported furniture market which has paid dividends in the long run. Not only are we now one of the top UK companies specialising in Chesterfi elds, our world market continues to grow including America, Asia, the Middle East and most countries in Europe. I am very proud of what we have achieved as a team especially my wife and business partner Sharon”. All our furniture is hand made from


the fi nest materials here in Lancashire and with over 50 designs and many leathers
