Bedroom set from Durham Furniture in Canada with turquoise bedspread

Durham Furniture builds solid wood furniture distinguished by exceptional quality, award-winning design and enduring value. It all comes from the little town of Durham, Ontario, where their reputation for quality and value got its start in 1899.

 

The History of Durham Furniture

 

Durham Furniture’s began as a community initiative to provide employment for the Town of Durham’s young people. Their original location was a red-brick factory, which remains the present site of the organization and its 200 craftspeople. The company passed through many hands over the years, before returning to Durham in 1992.

 

Today, Durham is regarded as one of North America’s leading manufacturers of solid wood fine furniture — and one of the best representatives of Canadian Made Furniture.

 

Sustainability

 

The Town of Durham is nestled amid rolling hills, forests and farms, along the Saugeen River. All Durham Furniture pieces are made from sustainably harvested solid wood in the local area. Their commitment to sustainable production is recognized by the Sustainable Furnishing Council and other third-party organizations.

 

Legacy

 

Durham Furniture has developed a storied legacy over the years. In 1948, a furniture set was designed for the London home of the newly married Princess Elizabeth. After her coronation, the furniture was spread across Buckingham Palace and other properties — and a solid Canadian maple desk is used by Prince Philip to this day!

 

From luxury hotels to family homes, Durham Furniture continues to be passed down from generation to generation as a mark of beauty, comfort and quality. When you invest in a piece of Durham furniture, it is with the knowledge that it will eventually become a family heirloom.
