The Original Chesterfield
There are many different stories about the origin of this typical English furniture, of which the following story is most plausible:
In 1773 Philip Dormer Stanhope - English writer, the statesman and 4th Duke of Chesterfield - received a visit while on his deathbed. He spoke to his faithful servant: "Give Mr. Dayrolles a chair ". The clerk, confused by the approaching end of his master, insisted that the visitor, upon his departure, take the chair where he had just been sitting upon. This chair is probably the forerunner of the Chesterfield style that we know today.
Below the answers to some frequently asked questions about Chesterfield:

Must an original Chesterfield come from England?
No, the story that only English Chesterfield is good quality, is a decades old invented myth. The Chesterfield style is after many centuries very popular and it is therefore evident that the number of producers have increased rapidly worldwide.

This was a very clever marketing ploy at the time, but now it’s completely obsolete. there are manufacturers in the UK who produce furniture of very low quality due to cost savings. Today, The country of origin says virtually nothing about the quality delivered.
How do I see the difference between a real and an imitation Chesterfield?
