Duresta Loose Cover Range
Duresta Holland Park Armchair
This armchair was made for a customer who wanted a slightly less formal look, and wanted a light airy large armchair for a seaside home. In this instance we also supplied some additional arm covers (not shown) which added to the loose cover look. 
Duresta Holland Park Medium Sofa 
This sofa was made for a customer who wanted a country style, that would remain in fashion. It is a 2.5 seat Nicky Sofa.
Loose Covers
2 Seater Duresta Sofa
This picture typifies the slightly less formal nature of the Duresta loose cover range. Of course you can take the covers off to have them dry cleaned ... especially if you have a Black Labrador who is keen on her comfort! This 2-seater Holland Park Nicky Sofa was designed to match the Duresta Armchair featured at the top of this page.  
Duresta Holland Park slip-covered designs are, to all intents and purposes, identical in construction to their tightly upholstered stable mates with the obvious exceptional feature of having their covers made so as to be removable. Whether you do this for purposes of Dry Cleaning or so as to replace them with a fresh look, it is up to you. Additional Slip covers are availiable from Bennetts.

Duresta Lanhydrock Chair
Height 99cm  Width 73cm  Depth 82cm
At the heart of Duresta is the 'English Country House' style. This style is universally appreciated for its essentially comfortable character. These pieces of furniture have a more formal structure to their design.  However, with the huge choice in fabric you can tailor it to suit any home however large or small.
The particular Duresta chair pictured now sits in a small study in the the South West, with a customer who wanted this wonderful green check fabric. 

The National Trust symbol 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.  
Duresta Stool
This Duresta Stool is inspired by the Duresta Rectory Stool and was made to match the Duresta Lanhydrock Chair above. It was designed to be slightly higher and narrower than many stools as space was at a premium.

The Duresta classic range is what Duresta call their "Country House Style". You do not need a country house to enjoy the benefits of exceptionally well crafted furniture, which will last and last. The Duresta Classic sofa has fitted covers which are gently stretched and fixed to the upholstery. Depending on the style you choose
Duresta Sofa Construction
The frame of upholstery represents nothing less than the skeleton of the design. Just as a beautiful face must have 'Good bones', so it is with furniture. The frame, if it is made correctly, enables the upholsterer to create something of lasting quality. For that essential 'Rightness' of appearance a frame must be constructed appropriately. For 'Classic' and 'Slipcover' collections the traditional styling dictates a solid hardwood frame dowelled, glued and screwed together. Nothing is better, so that is what they do. Some of the leather pieces have more contemporary styling so are constructed using more modern materials and techniques including 9 layer laminates and zinc plated bolts alongside the essential solid hardwoods. Frames give years of trouble free service, they are built  to last, try lifting up a piece of Duresta furniture and you will see what we mean.

Duresta's collection of fabrics are sourced internationally to ensure the widest choice and all undergo rigorous quality testing to reduce the incidence of premature wear and tear and to guide you as to suitability.
