London Fashion Week showcased a selection of the latest clothing trends last week, but here at Barker and Stonehouse we’re feeling inspired by a new fashion-forward furniture collection.

For AW16, British Designer Matthew Williamson has collaborated with Nottingham based sofa manufacturers Duresta to launch his first bespoke furniture collection; Duresta for Matthew Williamson.

Tango Sofa in Aurora Fuchsia & Tango Chair in Butterfly Wheel Berry

The collection follows suit from Matthew Williamson’s famous fashion collections, with a beautiful bohemian feel full of fabulous prints, eye-catching colours and stunning shapes. Drawing inspiration from across the centuries, the designer has worked with Duresta to reinterpret classic and contemporary furniture styles and combined them with a range of exclusive fabrics in his signature aesthetic.

Sumptuous Designer Sofa Ranges

The Minnelli Sofa Range, above, features clean lines and square arms for an architectural appeal. Available in a range of sizes and fabric choices, it sits on stainless steel legs for a sleek look that will fit perfectly within a contemporary home.

Likewise, the Minnelli Day Bed features a modern modular design that can be configured with other pieces to suit your living space. It comes in an array of amazing fabric options, including this stunning marble butterfly raspberry effect.

For a retro-inspired feel, the Tango Sofa & Chair embody the elegance of mid-century design. Vintage curves and button detailing heighten the aesthetic whilst splayed ebony and brass legs complete the look.

Eclectic Occasional Tables

The Duresta for Matthew Williamson sofa range is complemented by an eclectic selection of occasional tables. From the elegant wine table to the statement console table, each piece is hand crafted and stands proud on flamingo-inspired legs for a cool and quirky look.

The range of occasional tables each feature a laquered or printed top and are available in a pink or green colourway.


Barker and Stonehouse is delighted to stock selected products from the Duresta for Matthew Williamson collection online as well as in our London, Leeds, Newcastle, Knaresborough and Teesside Park stores.
