S.W. James - Chesterfield Makers

We Love Chesterfields, So Our Goal Was Simple. Create A Range Of British Handmade Chesterfields That We Would Love For Our Own Homes.

We wanted to take all the features that have made the classic Chesterfield so famous and inject some fresh character and S.W. James personality. We have created a deeper, chunkier Chesterfield that is perfect to come home to after a long day, and we have made a more relaxed and comfortable Chesterfield, with our ‘super sprung’ base and sumptuous feather wrapped foam cushions, perfect for lounging on lazy days. We have even designed a slightly slimmer Chesterfield with the smaller home or apartment in mind.

S.W. James is home to some of the most sumptuous and comfortable Chesterfield’s that can be found. We put our heart and soul into hand-making Chesterfields and vintage leather sofas to love for a lifetime. We aim to create pieces of furniture that will become part of your family.

Every S.W. James is handmade just for you.
We want you to be proud to say you have an S.W. James in your home and know its a piece of unique furniture you can truly call your own.


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.
