A Canadian tradition since 1919. Handmade sofas, chairs, and sectionals of the finest quality.
Barrymore has been a Canadian tradition since 1919. Barrymore craftsmen produce outstanding custom-made sofas, chairs, sectionals and beds in their Toronto factory. Welcome to a place where furniture isn’t manufactured. It’s made by hand, made for generations. Barrymore is committed to quality you can see: you can watch cutters, sewers and upholsterers with years of training, experience and dedication at work through the large windows in the factory.
Something not quite right? No problem. Due to Barrymore’s hand made nature almost every aspect of the piece can be customized!
We start with a 100% Canadian kiln-dried hardwood frame – maple, oak, ash or birch. All key joints are double-dowelled as well as glued and screwed. Corner blocks are used to disperse weight equally along the base and side. Try lifting a Barrymore sofa and you’ll see the difference.
Eight-way hand-tied coils are the gold standard for high-quality upholstery, expensive and labour-intensive as they are. Barrymore has replaced the traditional burlap base and hemp twine with ultra-strong polypropylenes — an ideal marriage of tradition and technology.
A layer of cotton felt carefully wrapped over the hardwood frame, then sturdy polyurethane foam for shape, then another layer of cotton felt – all combine to give a luxurious feel.
The Seat Cushions. Barrymore Signature Seating uses convoluted foam with 2.2 lbs density. Each foam core is pre-stressed and covered with a luxurious envelope of high-loft polyester fibre. This seating construction – perfected over several decades – provides an ideal combination of support, durability, and softness.
The Back Cushions. The finest Dacron fiber available is used in a channeled cotton casing to ensure longevity and comfort.
