ABOUT US

Why is Grafton Everest such a trusted name in lounge furniture? Is it our large range that offers you variety? Or perhaps it’s the old-school craftsmanship that uses traditional methods and high-quality components? Maybe it’s our reputation for great style and durability built over more than six decades? We think that it’s the unrivalled comfort that our couches provide.

Since 1953, we’ve enjoyed a special place in hearts and homes across the nation and beyond. We’ve been the creators of long-lasting comfort for our customers for as long as we’ve been making lounge furniture. It’s something we’ve done for over 60 years and our master craftsmen who remain today have over 2 decades of passion and experience. With strict standardisation measures, attention to detail and an eye for design, we’ve set the standards for comfort, quality and style!

OUR SPRINGS

Over the years, Grafton Everest has prided itself on the utilisation of an advanced and incredibly strong zigzag shaped spring system that is used for all our lounge suites.

All springs that Grafton Everest use for the seats are zigzag in design and double tempered. This means that the springs undergo a baking process in an oven at over 600 degrees celsius, to strengthen the molecular structure of every spring. This also ensures that each spring retains its zigzag shape and structure through the life of the lounge suite. The tempering process is repeated twice for ultimate durability, thereby increasing the support and structure of every Grafton Everest Lounge suite.

Besides being double tempered, the zigzag springs have 3 silent tie wires running across and clipped to each spring. This allows for the whole spring unit to be to be brought into one complete working system when attached to the solid wooden frame. The spring system used in all our seats is set to handle the pressures and usability, for industry leading longevity and comfort.
