Duresta Sofas: Here’s What You Need to Know

By Darlings Of Chelsea

If you’ve decided that it’s time to change your sofa and have been doing some research online and in-store, chances are you may have already come across a Duresta Sofa.

Known for their luxurious sofas, Duresta is a heritage brand, who have been creating sofas in their workshop in Nottinghamshire since 1938. The embodiment of classic English style, these handmade sofas are created by highly skilled craftspeople, using only the finest materials.

Attention to detail is paramount, with these luxury sofas a long-term investment that can be passed from generation to generation.

If this sounds appealing, then read on – here’s our handy guide to Duresta Sofas: What You Need to Know.


Types of Duresta Sofa

Whichever style you’ve set your mind on having, there will be a Duresta sofa to match it. There are traditional sofas in abundance, sitting alongside beautiful Chesterfields and chic contemporary sofas such as the Domus Soho Range.

There’s also a real range of sizes. From a standard two-seater sofa to a corner sofa, and larger three-seaters to wingback armchairs. There are the more informal deep-seated sofas to settle back and relax into, to classic sofas such as the Beresford, offering a real touch of elegance to your room.

The stylish Sasha combines the classic Duresta style with a modern, refined look and feel – if you want a chair that commands attention, go for the Capuchins Weaves fabric (if that feels a little too overwhelming, choose it for your sofa cushions instead!).

Sofa Fabric

Using refined, traditional furniture-making methods, the fabrics used in making a Duresta sofa are of the utmost quality. For their fabric sofas, they use natural fibre, synthetic fibre and combinations of both. All of the fabric designs are exclusive to their upholstery, coming from the most prestigious and innovative mills.

If you’re after a quality leather sofa, Duresta comes up trumps once again. They use aniline-dyed leather, which is considered to be of premium quality because top grain hides selected for dying are chosen from the best 5% of all leather produced. When looked after properly, a Duresta leather sofa can last a lifetime.

In addition to the traditional fabric sofas and leather sofas, Duresta sofas, such as the Duresta Connaught, are also available in velvet, providing a real richness and depth of colour and a sumptuous look and feel.

How Good are Duresta Sofas?

Artisan furniture-making is synonymous with Duresta – they have been champions of this skill for over eight decades and continue to refine their methods to ensure no stone is left unturned when it comes to producing a piece of furniture unrivalled in quality.

As well as offering a premium fabric, the filling and the hardwood frame also provide the finest quality – ensuring that whichever sofa you invest in, it will provide you with years of comfort and timeless elegance.

Choosing any sofa is a big decision – you’re looking for a piece of furniture that will play a big part in your living space. You’ll curl up there on lazy weekends with family, sit back and relax with friends and spend your downtime there after a long day at work.

If you choose a Duresta Sofa, you’re choosing a sofa that offers longevity, the utmost in comfort, quality and timeless appeal. What are you waiting for?
