Buttoned Seat Vs Cushioned Seat

Customers often ask us whether a cushioned seat chesterfield is better than a buttoned seat model.

Some customers prefer the added flexibility of cushions; These can be removed for ease of cleaning and seat interiors or cases can be replaced if a mishap occurs. Cushions also allow you to chose the firmness of the seat. Our standard foam option offers the clean lines commonly associated with chesterfields while a fibre cushion gives a more relaxed “vintage” appearance.

The alternative is the buttoned seat, shown to great effect on the Ludlow.  A more contemporary option offering a firm sit with the piece of mind that comes with knowing cushions slipping or being thrown around is a thing of the past.

While the cushioned seat has been the traditional style of the chesterfield sofa for generations we have seen increasing numbers of customers opting for the buttoned seat in recent years. This trend is being led by the Balston Chesterfield, possibly the most popular buttoned seat model we’ve ever sold.

In the end though the answer comes down to personal preference and customer personalisation is something we pride ourselves on. That’s why virtually all our chesterfields can be made with the buttoned seat or the cushioned seat option.
