1. Mulhouse Furniture Garcia Chesterfield Sofa — Check Price
Best Linen Upholstery
This loveseat features deep button tufting and bun couch feet, which give it a more traditional look. This aesthetic is balanced by its gorgeous crosshatched linen upholstery (available in beige, light gray, charcoal gray, and crimson), and its deep-set seat cushions allow users to luxuriate with or without throw pillows. Though users do note that the high-density foam cushions can be on the firm side, they tout the seat’s easy assembly, sturdy frame, and lightweight build (it's just about 96 pounds). It’s available in the loveseat size pictured, as well as a three-seat sofa size in the same colors. Plus, it comes with free shipping.
2. Edloe Finch Green Velvet Chesterfield Sofa — Check Price
Best Velvet Upholstery
This 7.5-foot chesterfield sofa’s jewel-toned velvet is made even cozier by its two removable foam cushions. The silhouette features classic rolled arms, and its upholstery is lightly channeled along the back and sides. This three-seater sits on a slim-leg, eucalyptus-wood base that's simple to assemble and provides a solid foundation for everyday enjoyment. This is not only one of the more affordable options on our list (at under $1,000), but the shipping is also free!
3. Massoud Davidson Tufted Seat Chesterfield Sofa — Check Price
Best Leather Upholstery
A pick befitting a home library of Beauty and the Beast proportions, the antiqued-brass nailheads that dot the arms and base of this chesterfield beautifully complement the sheen of the buttery leather upholstery. Available in 6-, 8-, and 10-foot widths, its fixed, button-tufted seat cushions can comfortably fit numerous sitters at once. This sofa also comes in dark gray, deep teal, oxblood red, chocolate, and saddle brown. White glove shipping and in-home assembly are included in the $150 shipping cost.

It’s a made-to-order piece, in which every component, from the couch width, to the material type and color, to the leg and nailhead finish, can be customized. Select on the site from a rainbow of options in velvet, slub velvet, wool, leather, or basketweave and Belgian linen to create your perfect centerpiece seat. The sofa is available in either a 7- or 8-foot-long silhouette, and it features generous button tufting along the back, arms, and front. Users adore its luxe look and sturdy build.

5. Pottery Barn Chesterfield Upholstered Sofa — Check Price
Best Material Options
This pick, with its low-profile back and button-tufting, makes it a luxurious home base for all living room-centric activities. Choose from a 6-, 7-, or 8-foot-long design, with numerous color-and-material combinations available. The upholstery materials range from twill, velvet, Sunbrella, organic cotton, linen, and even denim — but we especially love that many are available as performance-grade materials, which are easier to clean and more practical for bustling households. (Fabric swatches are available for free!) Though it arrives quite firm, the foam in the sofa cushions will soften up over time, but their innerspring construction will ensure that they won’t sag. Though the sofa's shipping fee is upwards of $100 (exact costs are determined by zip code), Pottery Barn does offer white-glove delivery and in-home assembly.

Best Chesterfield Chair
Complete your reading nook with this chesterfield armchair, with its low arms perfect for propping up your elbows with a book or a beverage. The dapper upholstery is 100% leather, which only gets better with regular use, and users comment that the seat is actually quite cushy — a departure from other rigidly tailored models. The legs are the only pieces that users have to be concerned with assembling, and though this model is available in loveseat, sofa, and even ottoman forms, we're partial to the chair version for small-space dwellers. It's also eligible for free shipping.

Best Chesterfield Sectional
Because of its symmetrical design, this chesterfield sectional can be placed at either corner of a room, and it's a more casual, family-friendly alternative to the sofa’s traditional look.

Users like that though it’s a sectional, it doesn't look or feel too bulky, and that the assembly is relatively easy and quick (though it takes two people to put together). Plus, there are no extra shipping costs included.
