Looking for drool-worthy Australian-made furniture? We have rounded up a bunch of trailblazing companies.
Furniture that’s designed and made in Aus is getting a bit hard to come by – mass produced and imported is the norm. Not only is Australian-made likely to be good quality, but by buying it you’re supporting Aussie designers, craftsmen and businesses and contributing to a sustainable future, too. It’s a win win. Here are some pieces and brands I’m coveting…
Tuckbox started in Melbourne by Dan, brother Ant and wife Prue. Their beautiful pieces are designed to respond to increasingly compact urban environments – so many pieces are stackable and easily transportable. I’m in love with their minimalist style with beautiful highlight features.
Outside Envy sprang from the realisation that outdoor furniture is often pretty uninspiring. Pieces are made in Melbourne by local craftsmen, with the focus on durability, comfort and style. I’d love to put this chair on my balcony.
The Arthur G range is created with great respect for material and process, and they promote and maintain sustainable work practices throughout all aspects of the design and manufacturing process. All products come with a 10 year structural guarantee, too.
Senkki furniture is made with mid-century design preferences in mind. Their pieces feature a lot of wood, white and pops of bright colour. I like design that walks the line between fun and classy.
Mr and Mrs White make products that come from their desire to live life simply and live life well. Their simplicity of design and attention to detail is obvious. I like their ethos about getting the foundations of your home right first (a table, a chair, a bed) before building it up.
