Made to Order Sofas

Duresta have been making high-quality upholstery for over 70 years. Their factory is in Long Eaton, a Nottinghamshire town that has become renowned for the skills of its people in the fine furniture industry. They have an unrivalled understanding of upholstery, the techniques of traditional joinery of frame makers, all types of fabric cutting and sewing expertise. Each of Duresta’s beautiful pieces combine practicality with luxurious comfort, achieved by the symphony of this high quality craftsmanship and the outstanding caliber of the input materials.


Duresta source their fabrics internationally, to ensure the widest choice of styles and colours. Each one is not only individually hand cut, but also expertly sewn with separate valances applied by hand slipstitching. Rigorous quality testing is also a key part of the process, to ensure the duration and impeccability of each inch of material. The end result of this expert craftsmanship is long lasting, sumptuously comfortable seating.


At the forefront of everything they do, Duresta maintain that sofas and chairs are not merely functional objects; they also play an important part in establishing the character of the room in which they are set. Although Duresta designs naturally adapt to changing tastes and trends, an enchanting feature of each product created is that they consistently boast timeless English style. This entails elements of understatement, subtlety and fine proportion. Examples of this can be viewed most clearly in their Classic Collection, comprising their most traditional designs. The Waldorf and Trafalgar Collections perhaps showcase this English style the most prominently of all the sofas. 


For more unique and modern designs, they also boast a beautiful International collection, which is highly exclusive. We at Pavilion are proud to be one of only a small number of outlets in the UK that has access to this.


Duresta’s full range of sofas, chairs and fabrics are supplied to order, whether you are looking to shake up your interior with a statement piece such as a sofasuite, or you require a smaller Arm Chair, or you simply wish for an old favourite to be reupholstered with a more specific colour scheme or fabric type. Our interior designers will be on hand with you through every stage of the design process, providing advice on how to integrate your stunning Duresta sofa into your room setting, and helping you source the precise fabric you wish to use according to your own preferences.
