Why buy from Gresham House?

When it comes to upholstery – not only do we care about what we make – we care about how it is made! Our experienced staff uses only the best raw materials from soy based foam, cotton felt to certified hardwood frames.

Interior Designers bring their clients to Gresham House and know that no matter what size or style – Gresham House furniture is built to last.

It all starts with the frame. Five quarter CDN hardwood, corner blocked, dowelled, screwed and glued – only the best!

Gresham House Furniture > Upholstery

Feel our arms, feel our backs, they are padded with cotton felt and green foam to provide comfort that will last. This is not an assembly line .. each piece is upholstered from top to bottom by the same upholsterer.

Gresham House Furniture > Standard Cushion
Standard Cushions

Standard seat cushions are made with eco friendly foam that is extremely durable and wrapped with a soft fibre – channeled so that it won’t move around, finished in a cotton casing to ensure durability. You can feel the weight of our cushions – only the best!

Feather Cushions

For a luxurious sit, try our feather blend. 100% waterfowl feather wrap for seats with a foam core and 60% waterfowl feather, 40% fibre for our backs. For the ultimate luxury, choose our down fill (20% down, 80% waterfowl feather in the backs and envelope wrap seats).

Gresham House Furniture > Cutting

Each piece is hand cut individually in order to ensure that patterns are matched – no lay cutting here!

Gresham House Furniture > Sewing

Our piping is cut on the bias and sewn individually, our experienced sewers sew the welt to the band and the sew it a second time to the casing … we don’t cut any corners!

Having graduated from the Interior Design Program from Sheridan College, Kimberly worked for many years with a prominent design company before branching out on her own. With 15 years of experience in the industry, she joined our showroom sales team in 2015.

Her perfect sit is the 7120 chair, which reflects her modern aesthetic preferences. She would live in the Twilight house, if it wasn’t for her four boy’s ranging in ages from ten-two.  Drop by her house for dinner and not only will you have a delicious meal, but you may also be witness to spontaneous salsa dancing in the kitchen.
