Chesterfield furniture is an English-style seating furniture dating back to the late eighteenth century. They can be recognized by the padding (deep knots) on the back and seat and often have nails at the front.
The Chesterfield style quickly grew into an English icon and is known all over the world and recognized as such.
Padding is a technique in which a fabric or piece of leather is knotted in such a way that a layer of cushions is created between the fabric and the background.

The rococo is a European style period in the visual and applied arts, which has its peak between 1730 and 1760. The name is derived from the French word rocaille, an asymmetric shell motif that was widely used in the 18th century baroque, especially in applied art.

The upholstery has minor signs of wear.

The chairs are 101 cm high, have a width of 48 cm and a depth of 57 cm.
