This unique Chesterfield is a double drop arm leather sofa made by Dellbrook Furniture Ltd in England sometime around the year 1980. It features two arm rests that drop down to extend the sofa into a very large chaise that is great for napping!
English Leather Sofa
The leather used is a fine red color that has become rich and full of character since being built. All three cushions are soft, comfortable, and can be removed for easy cleaning. Tightly buttoned arm rests give the English leather sofa a classic feel while the shaped bottom and bun feet provide a unique flair. Hidden inside each of the four bun feet are small casters. These casters allow the sofa to roll, but are not so sensitive that it moves when you sit down on it.
Double Drop Arm Leather Sofa
As mentioned, both arm rests drop down. While in the upright position they stay in place by virtue of friction with the back rest. The height at which they lower down can be adjusted with the support ropes on either side. These ropes can be lengthened or shortened to achieve the optimal angle for the arms to drop to. While not sturdy enough to support being sat on while dropped, the arm rests can support either the head or feet of someone laying on the sofa. The sofa extends to 108″ wide with both arms dropped all the way.
You will notice the maker’s label on the middle of the skirt across the bottom. The label reads “Dellbrook, England”. Dellbrook Furniture Ltd started manufacturing in England in the 1960’s and continued to do so until about 10 years ago. They took the classic Chesterfield sofa and added shaped skirts with designs on them. Some Dellbrook sofas also used cushions instead of buttoned backs like you see here.
The interior measurements of the seating area with the arms up are 58.5″ wide x 25″ deep and the seat is 18″ from the floor.
We have rated this double drop arm leather sofa as very good condition. Structurally it is excellent being strong and sturdy. As you would expect from a sofa there are some minor wear marks throughout the leather. One seat cushion as a spot of discoloration shown in the photos. Otherwise there are small (pencil head or smaller) marks here and there. Nothing that detracts from the beauty and character of a lovely leather sofa. Do not miss your chance to own this couch, as double drop arm leather sofas are extremely rare!
