WHO WE ARE
The inception of our story began in the mind and heart of a 19-year-old Alfred Yow Song Vooi. He began as an apprentice in a small furniture shop when he came to know about the British Chesterfield sofa.
The cradle of the Chesterfield began in Great Britain by the request of the Fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Sir Philip Stanhope. He was a British statesman, diplomat and an acclaimed wit — best remembered for his comprehensive tome published by his son’s widow, entitled Letters to His Son on the Art of Becoming a Man of the World and a Gentleman. He was also looked up to for fashion, as he once requested for furniture which would allow him to sit upright without wrinkling his suit.
The beauty and elegance of the classic Chesterfield captured the heart of our young founder, who immediately began the strenuous journey of mastering his craft in artisanal furniture. While he embodies the spirit of a Craftsman, our Founder has also gone out of his way of learning the trade in the furnishing industry.
In 2009, A&A Chesterfield was established in Selangor, Malaysia. With over 30 years of experience in designing, crafting and manufacturing high quality furniture in Malaysia, we are now the leading leather sofa manufacturer in Malaysia, specialising in authentic Chesterfields.
After an extended time working in the furnishing industry and speaking with our clients, we found that fitting quality furniture, within a certain space for a reasonable price posed a significant problem. At A&A Chesterfield, we find joy in the task of building a quality sofa that perfectly fits your space, whether it’s in the home or office, without compromising on comfort, style and quality.
The hallmark of A&A Chesterfield furniture lies in the vigorous workmanship and attention to detail in each piece. As we began expanding, we searched high and low for the people who would join our workforce. These were people with passion, meticulousness and skills. Today, each of our craftsmen are highly trained leather specialists with more than 5 years of experience.
The leather Chesterfield sofa in Malaysia has been part of the English heritage since the 1800s, and is the epitome of elegance and sophistication in a designated space. Whether you choose to make it the centrepiece or an ornament in the home or office, rest assured your Chesterfield will stay with you for generations to come.
In a typical book, the story ends with a conclusion. However, at A&A Chesterfield, we prefer to leave the ending at the hands of our customers.
You get to pick and choose the design, size and style, and leave with satisfaction.
Because you’re not just buying furniture; you’re inviting a piece of history with unparalleled comfort and style into your space.
