Why Choose Custom?

The Beauty of Personalisation

Opting for a custom coffee table allows you to personalise every aspect, from the choice of sustainable materials and design to the size and finish. This personal touch ensures that your coffee table is not just a piece of furniture but a reflection of your individual style and personality.

Quality and Craftsmanship

Melbourne's local artisan and furniture makers are celebrated for their dedication to quality and craftsmanship. Choosing a custom piece means investing in something that's built to last, using superior materials and techniques that mass-produced items can't match.


Custom furniture often emphasises sustainability, using locally sourced materials and reducing waste by producing pieces that are exactly what the customer wants and needs. By choosing a custom coffee table, you're making an environmentally conscious decision.

Designing Your Custom Coffee Table

Material Matters

The choice of material for your coffee table plays a crucial role in its appearance and functionality. Popular options include timber, known for its warmth and durability; glass, for a modern, minimalist look; and metal, for an industrial edge. Melbourne's furniture makers can also incorporate mixed materials for a unique look.

Shape and Size

Consider the shape and size of your coffee table in relation to your living space. A large, rectangular table suits spacious rooms, while a round or oval table can soften a smaller, more intimate space. Your table should complement the room's layout, allowing for easy movement and interaction.

Style and Features

From sleek, contemporary designs to more intricate, traditional styles, your coffee table can be tailored to suit your home's aesthetic. Consider adding functional features like drawers for storage or a lift-top design for versatility.

Where to Find Melbourne's Finest

Melbourne is home to numerous bespoke furniture studios and skilled craftsmen workshops. Explore local galleries, attend design markets, or visit the workshops of local craftsmen to find the perfect match for your custom coffee table project. Engaging directly with artisans not only gives you insight into the process but also ensures that your vision is perfectly captured.

Care and Maintenance

Once your custom coffee table has found its place in your home, proper care and maintenance are key to preserving its beauty and longevity. Use coasters to prevent stains, avoid placing hot items directly on the surface, and follow the maker's advice for cleaning and upkeep.
