Crushing on: Chester Sofa from West Elm

While I do like the modern lines and clean-ability of our black leather sofa, which was picked for us by an interior designer, I've always longed for something different.  When we first moved in, I was going for a coastal look, so linen would have been my first choice as far as looks.  However, with pets, linen isn't a very practical choice.

I had resolved myself that linen will never be for me since I know I'll always have pets, but I'm constantly looking longingly when I see lovely sofas in photos.  Recently I was intrigued by a find in my West Elm catalog.  Have you seen their Chester Tufted Sofa?

Chester Tufted Upholstered Sofa in Pebble

It stock they carry it upholstered in either Oatmeal (linen color) or Pebble (gray).  Or you can choose a special order fabric.  They also carry it in leather, too, which is pet-friendly!

I like that the tufting gives is a classic look, but the arms and feet make it contemporary.  That's a perfect blend as far as I'm concerned!  What do you think?  Are you a fan?



  1. Uh Oh..............I see a purchase in your near future!!! Craigs List for the current sofa!

  2. Yes I could be a fan. So much a fan. The cost prohibition may kill the buzz of the fanhood however. So I am routing for you to see your way to actualizing your crush. And then we can all live vicariously through you.

  3. That's gorgeous! My husband actually would have liked leather but long ago learned our cat's nails scratch it(expensive lesson)-do you not have that problem?

  4. The Chesterfield is one of my favorites and West Elm's take on it is amazing.

  5. I'm a massive fan of the Chesterfield sofa (no surprise there) so I am loving the updated look on this classic. The greige-y leather is a gorgeous alternative to linen - love it xxx

  6. Great write-up, I am a big believer in commenting on blogs to inform the blog writers know that they’ve added something worthwhile to the world wide web!.. sofas uk

  7. If people are interested to buy a good product at affordable costs, it would be of advantage for them to get good quality. More appropriately, they can make their purchases from wholesale sofa makers and sellers, to get the good prices and bargains.


I hope you'll stop a second to let me know you were here and/or to share your thoughts!
