The winners will go into the awards Gala night to be held in W.A. on August 23rd.

Its great being one of the first to see some of the best and newest furniture available in the country and I hope to have some of these designs in my showroom in the near future.

thankyou Mark Mortelliti.

Timber seat chairs

Timber seat chair Timber Seat chairs are hard to find.

We have a few models in messmate and Victorian Ash.

These can be stained various colours to suit the table of your choice.

Its a great option for people with young kids as you don’t have to worry about food spills spoiling fabric seat chairs.

There is one trade off that the chairs are much heavier than padded fabric seat chairs because there is a lot of wood volume in the seat which adds weight.

If your after timber seat chairs and like these designs get in touch for more details.

Thanks Mark Mortelliti




Corner TV Units

Corner TV Units are hard to find, especially ones which will accommodate a 42″ flat screen TV.

We custom make them to suit our clients, but we also stock some standard models also. I’ve usually got 3 or 4 models on display at any time.

This one features ruff sawn timbers and the addition of 2x side module drawer units to store your DVD collections,remotes and TV guide. It can be made to measure to suit your home and the corner your working with where windows and doors may be part of your lounge area and where the corner is the only place to put your TV.

Our locally made products can be stained to suit your existing furniture and we are happy to sit down with you and design and quote on the perfect corner TV unit for you home.

Stocktake Sale Time

Its on again the mid year stocktake sales.

There has never been a better time to buy Australian made timber furniture.

There are some great deals currently available in showrooms right around Melbourne, including my store Lifestyle Furniture Nunawading.

Of course on showroom floors there are some absolute bargains on floor stock furniture that must be cleared because the designs have changed, range is superseded and just to make room for new ranges and designs.

Some items will be as much as 50% off but these wont last and will be a one off and its first in best dressed.

So get out there and take a look and find that special furniture item for your home and enjoy the hunt for a bargain.

If you can, support one of your local independent retailers where you will get great service and advise and please choose Australian made, locally made furniture to support over 120,000 people working in the local furniture industry.
