How Your Barrymore is Made

Barrymore sofas are the best-made sofas in the world. Every detail has been refined and adjusted to ensure maximum comfort and durability. The following diagram illustrates the quality and integrity that goes into every Barrymore:

1. The Frame. 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.

2. The Springs. 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.

3. The Arms. 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.

4. 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.

5. The Back Cushions. The finest Dacron fiber available is used in a channeled cotton casing to ensure longevity and comfort.
