Supportive Springs

The frame and springs are the most important elements of luxury sofa manufacturing - the individual application of the springs is where your piece of furniture will really begin to take shape. Ensuring the use of high-quality springs provides both longevity and the support you desire. This is a painstaking process of applying individual coil springs or serpentine springs to the frame to ensure a long lasting shape to each piece of furniture.

Our finishing team ensure your suite is assembled with the desired foot polish and shape, stud colour and border. Lastly, each stud on your Chesterfield suite is painstakingly hand-studded into the frame, ensuring the intricate detailing stands the test of time.

Loved by our customers

Excellent service from start to finish. We first met Olivia at the shop in Huddersfield. She was friendly, and knowledgeable, answering our questions and offering relevant advice as necessary. There was no pressure and we had all the time in the world to make a decision about, what was for us, quite an investment. The information regarding completion and delivery was accurate, and when our sofas arrived yesterday we were delighted. They are beautiful and ooze quality! The delivery team were in the timeframe quoted the previous day, and made l the whole experience easy. I can wholeheartedly recommend Distinctive Chesterfields in Huddersfield. Thank you to the whole team.

Kathleen

We bought two sofas from Distinctive Chesterfield the staff was really helpful with both sizing and colour nothing was too much for them. When they were delivered the two men was great and so careful they unwrapped the sofas and took all packaging away. My sofas look great in the royal blue velvet so classy. Thank you all at distinctive chesterfield. From Brian and Sandra.

Sandra Mecalfe

From my first telephone call and visit to the Clapham showroom, the service was exceptional. The staff helped and advised me with the order and kept me updated as the sofa was being made. The delivery was also smooth and professional. The sofa itself (blue leather) is beautiful and well made. A very satisfied customer here.

John Linnell

Well-made Chesterfield sofas with some adaptions to the design. All went smoothly and the turnaround time for production was as stated. I looked at many companies before taking the plunge, I am very happy with the result.

Robert James

DC matched a sofa for us in colour & style perfectly to armchairs we already had. Very patient & helpful in the ordering stage & after sales. Am very pleased with our purchase, good quality items. Would definitely buy from them again.

Sue

We are overwhelmed with the beauty and quality of the sofa and chairs. They are solid. The leather finish is beautiful, smooth and soft. The colour is perfect. We expect the covers will last for the remainder of our lives. Delivery was expert and efficient. Yes, the furniture is expensive, but we are delighted with it. The entire experience, from purchase to delivery was fine. Everyone, most especially Christina, has been enormously helpful. Thanks to all at Distinctive Chesterfields.

Jack

Recently brought a sofa & club chair. Both chairs are absolutely fab! Great material. Well informed delivery. Time schedule of the items being made was so much quicker than some bigger names stores. And actually what we brought would of been a little more expensive elsewhere. Had one of studs pop out slightly, and the customer service & service having it resolved was fantastic for such a minor issue. Fabulous!
