Story

PerfectBalance was designed to meet the needs and expectations of lifestyles today.  This was done by keeping key features that Durham Furniture has built its reputation on since 1899 and adding an opportunity for personalization. Introduced in 2012, PerfectBalance has been a perfect solution for many.

  

Quality solid wood furniture – Solid wood construction, dovetail joints, ultra smooth sanding and rich finishes have always been considered signs of the best quality and durability.  As a manufacturer of solid wood furniture since 1899 Durham is well versed in quality and utilizes the same methods for construction that made us what we are today.

Broad range of styles – Our line of solid wood bedroom furniture offers contemporary, traditional, transitional and classic looks.

Personal choices – Every PerfectBalance piece offers an opportunity for customization.  Choose your finish from our list of maple options, hardware for case pieces and add bed storage where required to meet all of your personal needs. 

Furniture size – Whether you are decorating your master suite, second bedroom or youth abode the dimensions of our collection pieces can meet the design and functionality required in homes today.

Made in North America – Our solid wood furniture is manufactured and assembled in Durham, Ontario, Canada from sustainably harvested trees from North America.
