Marilyn Roberts is the driving force behind Gresham House. She pairs her unfettered enthusiasm with a passion for building fine furniture to create the successful formula for what is Gresham House. Along with her father, Max, Marilyn and staff work to construct by hand the highest quality of finely crafted custom upholstered furniture.


….beautiful fabric cloths. Marilyn had an idea to offer well priced fabrics in an assortment of velvets, linens, cottons and so much more. Paired with any Gresham House frame, creates a wonderful piece of fine custom furniture.


Quality is most important….quality in materials, quality in craftsmanship, quality in customer service. Gresham House sources only the best raw materials. Certified hardwood frames, the highest quality soy based foam & real cotton felt. They hand build each piece, paying close attention to detail. Gresham House proudly stands behind their furniture.

The Frame

Web and Coil

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

Sinuous Springs

You thought that sinuous springs won’t last? The way they do it – they will last forever!


Arms and backs 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.

Standard & Feather 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 their cushions – only the best!

For a luxurious sit, try the 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 their down fill (20% down, 80% waterfowl feather in the backs and envelope wrap seats).


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


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!
