Often when viewing adverts, or browsing websites, like ours, you'll see a the same type of furniture called by different names.
So the question is, what's the difference? Basically, nothing. The three most common names pretty much mean the same thing. The different names come from different roots, and tend to be regional in their use.
Strictly speaking, a chesterfield sofa is fully upholstered (no wooden back or arms), and has arms and back at the same height.
However, it's more commonly used these days to describe a large settee, often with deep buttoning (also known as tufting).
As to the question of where the name comes from, no one really knows. Some think it was named for the Earl of Chesterfield, others think it was named for the town in Derbyshire.
It has been in common use since the Victorian times.
