The story of every S.W. James created begins in our production studios nestled just outside Manchester, in the north-west of England. Each S.W. James is lovingly handcrafted there by a small, profoundly accomplished team of Chesterfield makers who have been making Chesterfields and chairs for over 30 years.
We are proud to boast every S.W. James Chesterfield we create is designed and manufactured by hand in our Greater Manchester, UK based production studio. Every element used to produce an S.W. James Chesterfield is sourced in Great Britain. The exception to that rule being our beautiful leathers which are sourced from the finest Italian based tanneries. This decision has allowed S.W. James to provide the very finest, bovine hides for all our Chesterfields. The result is a collection of hand designed and hand built British Chesterfields that wear the S.W. James brand name with pride. Where Possible We Use Natural Materials For Our Chesterfields. Such as; our incredibly heavy, solid oak, Kiln-dried frames sourced in the north west of England, beautiful feather filled cushions, sourced in the north west and chunky, robust turned wooden feet with polished brass casters all from the UK. We wanted every ingredient that goes into one of our Chesterfields to be something special. As a result, our Chesterfields will live with you for a lifetime.
