• Amanda Levette Chester Seating
Chester is a somewhat lateral interpretation of the classic Chesterfield sofa, using traditional upholstering techniques with springs, horsehair and a buttoned leather skin to create a soft, feminine form.

The rich ox-blood colour of the leather has associations with a gentlemen’s club, offset by the anodised aluminium buttons with a dent in the middle (giving the impression that they’ve just been pushed in). The buttoning pattern is triangulated but irregular, stretching over the large curves and contracting around the tighter ones.

Chester takes the aesthetic characteristics of the classically traditional sofa and adds a formal quality that enables more varied and versatile ways in which we can be seated together.
“There is something very nice about being intimate and separate at the same time, so this piece is designed for one person to use as a chaise longue while the other uses it as a seat. Or it can be used as a sofa for four, or you can sit on the floor and use it as a cushion. It has no back or front so it can sit as a freestanding piece in the middle of a room”. Amanda Levette, Future Systems.

Chester is available in leather with various colour options including ox-blood red and House of Lords green. It is also available as a foam based, felt upholstered version with again, various colour options including dark navy and lunar grey.
