Thanks for your recommendations. I especially like the one listed on Decorati's website. It's a happy marriage between the chesterfield and the international styles for a measely $1000...a true bargain!
The 1950s Florence Knoll sofa was yet another modern interpretation of the Chesterfield style. A vintage Florence Knoll three seater in the orginal black leather that is well-weather with a faded and crackled would be ideal.
