The brand has reached a significant milestone this year, celebrating a long history of business in the UK.
Staverton is delighted to announce its 88th year anniversary in the business of designing and manufacturing high-quality office furniture; a long history of successfully meeting and exceeding its clients’ expectations.
We have a strong heritage, and throughout the years the brand has achieved many unique and significant breakthroughs. Staverton Builders Limited was founded in 1928 when a skilled team of craftsmen restored the 14th century medieval hall at Dartington in South Devon. Large contracts for the Ministry of Defence were undertaken in the 1940s during the Second World War, major works in the Middle East were secured by the 1960s, and later on the company manufactured furniture ranges for the Crown Court Buildings and supplied solutions to prestigious world-class hotels.
In time, Staverton established itself as an award-winning UK manufacturer of office furniture with significant recognition within the architect and design community and amongst many companies and corporations. Over the last decade we secured the FIRA Gold Award, won a Design Prima’s Product Design Award, and received a Design Guild Mark from the Furniture Makers Company.
We have built our name by continuing to evolve existing products, but also by staying ahead of the industry with innovative new designs. To begin our anniversary celebration, we proudly announce the launch of the highly functional Staverton 88 range, a new furniture system which includes attractive desk, bench and table solutions. 88 with its tapered solid oak legs and optional novel solid oak ‘plank’ toolbars, is a range which echoes Staverton’s woodworking history and resonates in harmony with our heritage.
