Durham Furniture has been designing and building solid wood furniture since 1899. Known for their exceptional quality, distinguished features, and sustainably harvested materials, Durham is an amazing Canadian company.

 

Located in Durham, Ontario, the business employs nearly 200 craftspeople, some of which include generations of families working together, who produce environmentally responsible and beautifully designed furniture.

 

Environmentally Sustainable Construction

 

When you purchase a piece of Durham solid wood furniture, you can rest assured that it was produced in an environmentally sustainable and ethical way.

 

Durham Furniture builds its solid wood products using lumber from replenishing North American forests, and they continually work towards improving their environmental performance and reducing their ecological footprint.

 

Their commitment to sustainable production is solid and has been acknowledged by the following third-party certifications:

  • Sustainable Furnishings Council – Silver Exemplary Corporate Member
  • California Air Resources Board Compliance (CARB) – all Durham Furniture products meet and exceed the CARB 2 compliance requirements of the State of California

 

Ethically Sustainable Construction

 

Durham Furniture is also committed to their Social Equity Code of Conduct (which extends to their suppliers) and includes the following principles:

  • Provide proper wages and working conditions for employees
  • Use sustainable practices in acquiring all products
  • Develop a continuous improvement program for environmental practices
  • Have a strong commitment to health and safety for employees and their communities

They have even set up a liaison committee with local Durham residents to communicate what the company is doing to protect the environment and support living conditions around their manufacturing plant. Durham is committed to being a socially responsible member of their community.

 

Traditional, Contemporary, Transitional

 

Not only does Durham build their amazing furniture in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, but their products are also fantastic.

 

Their line of bedroom furniture comes in a wide array of styles to suit any home.

 

The traditional line takes their cue from 17th and 19th century furnishings and incorporates deeply coloured wood. Styles range from sleigh beds to European style grandeur featuring ornate carvings.

 

The contemporary line incorporates Asian and urban styles with wood and metal in a range of tones and stains.

 

The transitional line incorporates furniture that is a mix of traditional and contemporary with fewer ornate features, clean lines, and contrasting elements.
