Thank you for considering Duresta Hand Made Upholstery. Duresta has been making high quality upholstery for 70 years. Our 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 our furniture making combines these skills with the best materials available to produce long lasting sumptuously comfortable upholstery. For more detailed information please view our Quality and Craftsmanship page.
We 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 our 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.
We offer a very large range of fabrics which we source internationally to ensure the widest choice of styles and colours. These are individually hand cut and expertly sewn with separate valances applied by hand slipstitching. All undergo rigorous quality testing to reduce the incidence of premature wear and tear and to guide you as to suitability.
Duresta has had a long working relationship with The National Trust. For more details please see The National Trust page.
We hope that you find something which suits your taste from our ranges.
