The Duresta Story...
Skilled craftsmanship, combined with both traditional and modern techniques, means that Duresta can proudly offer you a bespoke service with several unique benefits. At Barker and Stonehouse, we are proud to stock some of the best Duresta furniture that this prestigious company has to offer.
Duresta has been making high quality upholstery for 70 years. Their factory is in Long Eaton, a Nottinghamshire town renowned for the skill of its people in all aspects of furniture making, from the traditional joinery of frame makers through to all kinds of fabric cutting and sewing expertise and, of course, an unrivalled understanding of upholstery. You will find that their furniture making combines these skills with the best materials available to produce long lasting sumptuously
Duresta always bear in mind that sofas and chairs are not merely functional objects for seating. They also play an important part in establishing the character of the room they are set in. Although their designs naturally respond to changing tastes, at the heart of each lies Classic English Style, which throughout the world is generally considered to have a flavour of understatement, subtlety and fine proportion.
For many years Duresta has held a unique licence which enables them to study closely the myriad design details and original pieces of furniture found in the collections of The National Trust.
