Staverton has a long history of high-quality bespoke office furniture design and craftsmanship.

Staverton Joinery arose out of the rebuilding of the 14th century medieval hall at Dartington in South Devon. The restoration needed to be executed by skilled craftsmen, who were at that time in short supply and had to be recruited from further afield. Upon completion of the Great Hall project three years later, measures were taken to prevent the team of craftsmen from dispersing. An old flour mill at the nearby village of Staverton was refitted to provide new works and house the gifted set of joiners, cabinet makers and builders. Thus a new company was formed called Staverton Builders Limited.

During the Second World War large contracts for the Ministry of Defence were undertaken but in 1946 a fire destroyed the original factory. The adjacent site was then adopted as Staverton’s home.
By the 1960s, Staverton had developed a reputation for high quality craftsmanship and securing major contracts for specialist joinery in the Middle East. This period also saw Staverton manufacturing furniture ranges for the Crown Suppliers and this developed into many contracts for Crown Court Buildings and major London hotels.
