Barrymore Furniture – Beautiful Furniture
Barrymore Furniture is Canada’s leading upholstery line of fine furnishings.
In the history of upholstered furniture, which dates back to Ancient Egypt 2000BC, the gradual evolution of upholstery as it now stands was quite a development. Most prototypes had been designed by Architects and Engineers. Even back then ergonomics was considered.
The actual sofa design was created in late 16th to beginning of 17th century. The interior components were stuffed with horse hair and birds feathers before the application of fine brocades and silks as final coverings. Morris designed the pocket spring in 1828 hence another development in the comfort factor of upholstery.
Barrymore Furniture’s history is based on the same qualified historical principals, comfort and quality. Originally known as The Toronto Rattan Company, situated on King St. West and Atlantic Street, the name was changed in 1930 to its present title and location was moved to Caledonia Ave in Toronto.
