Splurge vs. Steal: The Chesterfield Sofa

I am really passionate about finding great deals (and who isn’t, especially with today’s economy)!  It is so much fun to hunt for treasures at bargain prices and with the money saved, to afford the more pricey items you absolutely love!  I am so very lucky to be surrounded by 1.25 million square feet of the world’s best showrooms filled with beautiful furnishings and accessories, all at different price points!   From sofas, beds and entire dining rooms to accessories and rugs, there are always fabulous finds at different price points!

Ahhh … The Chesterfield sofa… that quintessential element when a vision comes to mind of a room perfumed by the heady aroma of fine tobacco…and you expect magic–the likes of Holmes or Churchill to join you for a lively conversation.  It’s a classic, devoid of a fixed time period and always in style.

And of course, where else but at Furnitureland South will you have lots of options to fit your budget! Today I will feature the “Brittany” sofa, by Ralph Lauren/EJ Victor and “Cigar Club” Sofa by Curations Limited.

The Splurge:

E.J. Victor’s upholstery is considered the highest achievement in the art of furniture making. Each piece is handcrafted to perfection and is a tribute to those who appreciate excellence. Quality is assured by the painstakingly thorough process, with minute attention paid to every detail, seen and unseen. Understanding the designs and craftsmanship of the past, E. J. Victor’s craftsmen pride themselves on building heirloom quality furniture for future generations to treasure.

Ralph Lauren Brittany Sofa by EJ Victor

Ultimate in style and quality, this 101″ Ralph Lauren sofa features a tufted bench seat, back and arms, peppered with leather buttons and nailhead trim. With its flared arms, this sofa is a slightly “French interpretation” of the traditional Chesterfield. You will be thrilled with the many fine leather choices that EJ Victor has to offer: from buttery soft to waxy pull-ups, all in classic colors, or choose from the countless designer fabric options, sure to satisfy the most discriminating of tastes.  You can further customize it with the choice of throw pillows, nailhead or welt and wood finish options to create a luxurious sofa, that is uniquely yours, for years to treasure.

The Steal:

Curations Limited is a new partner for Furnitureland South and is quickly gaining tremendous popularity!  Curations Limited features fashionable styles with traditional sophistication, quality construction, all at prices that are hard to resist! I should mention that most of their items are in stock in their High Point, NC warehouse so your treasures can find their way to your home quickly!

Curations Cigar Club Sofa

Each product in this line has its own distinct personality. This is because every item is a reflection of the people who have created it. From the founder to the customer service team, the Curations Limited brand has been shaped by the passion, creativity, and dedication of the personalities behind it. It stands alone in its approach to the design and manufacturing of high-quality furniture and accessories that are value-priced.

Created from the highest quality raw materials, each Curations Limited’s heirloom piece is designed to be a classic fixture in the home that provides beauty and comfort day in and day out, year after year.

The Cigar Club Sofa is a true-to-life reproduction of the timeless classic Chesterfield, the staple of fine smoking rooms of the past 200 years.  Curations Limited offers it sheathed in rich leather or crisp linen, secured with hand-hammered brass nails.
