For more than 60 years Duresta have continued in the English tradition as makers of 'Country House' upholstery and are suppliers to the foremost furnishing specialists throughout the world.
Duresta design and manufacture premium chairs, sofas and suites that are built to last - try lifting up a piece of Duresta furniture and you will see what we mean. To achieve this Duresta use materials and construction techniques of the highest quality. Solid hardwood frames are used for the traditional styling of the Duresta 'Classic' and 'Slipcover' collections and more contemporary leather styles are constructed using more contemporary materials and techniques including laminates alongside the essential solid hardwoods. Duresta's collection of fabrics & leathers are sourced internationally to ensure the widest choice.
All undergo rigorous quality testing to reduce the incidence of premature wear and tear and to guide you as to suitability. At the heart of Duresta is the 'English Country House' style. This style is universally appreciated for its essentially 'Comfortable' character, one where the formal and very grand can sit beautifully alongside the casual, plain and simple. In fact some items in the Duresta range carry the National Trust symbol. Where this is found it indicates that the model is inspired by original pieces and design details found in the collections of the National Trust. Duresta holds a unique licence to reproduce pieces from collections found in its historic houses.
