80 Years of luxury handmade furniture

Duresta has made luxurious upholstery in Nottinghamshire since 1938.

We provide handmade furniture created by highly skilled craftspeople, using the best materials and offering the highest levels of customer service.

Our designs are constantly evolving and are considered to be the embodiment of classic English style, with a unique and individual touch. We have mastered and refined traditional furniture-making methods to ensure every piece of upholstery we produce is perfect in every detail; we are proud of our history and dedicated to preserving the Duresta legacy.

We’re also extremely proud of our long-standing relationship with the National Trust, which allows our design teams to study and be inspired by unique pieces of furniture held in the National Trust collections. Our furniture is created from hardwood frames that are hand-assembled by our highly experienced craftspeople and guaranteed for 25 years. The hardwood frames are dowelled, glued and screwed providing a stable and robust foundation upon which we create our designs. We only choose and commission fabric designs from the most prestigious and innovative mills and all are exclusive to Duresta.
