Why Go Custom in Melbourne?

Unmatched Personalisation

Opting for custom furniture means you can tailor every detail to your needs and preferences, from dimensions that perfectly fit your space to materials and finishes that match your existing décor. This level of personalisation ensures that each piece is not just furniture, but a reflection of your personality and lifestyle.

Support Local Craftsmen

Melbourne's community of furniture makers is known for their craftsmanship and attention to detail. By choosing custom furniture, you’re not only getting a unique product but also supporting local businesses and keeping traditional skills alive in the community.


Custom furniture is often more sustainable. Local production reduces the carbon footprint, and the high quality and timelessness of bespoke pieces mean they last longer than mass-produced alternatives, reducing waste and encouraging a cycle of use and reuse.

Finding the Right Furniture Maker

Research Local Artisans

Melbourne is teeming with talented furniture designers. Start by visiting local galleries, artisan markets, or checking online portfolios to find a maker whose style resonates with yours.

Check Reviews and Past Work

Once you've shortlisted a few craftsmen, look at their previous projects and customer reviews. This will give you insight into their quality of work and customer service, ensuring you choose someone who is reliable and well-respected.

Discuss Your Vision

Meeting with your chosen designer to discuss your needs and ideas can help refine your vision and ensure you're both on the same page. It’s also a great opportunity to touch and feel the materials, understand the production process, and get a true sense of what the final product will look like.

Trends in Melbourne’s Custom Furniture Scene

  • Eco-Friendly Designs: There's a growing trend towards using sustainable materials like reclaimed wood or repurposed items to create stylish and environmentally conscious pieces.
  • Functional Art: Furniture that doubles as art is becoming popular. Think sculptural pieces that serve as focal points while offering practicality.
  • Hybrid Spaces: With more people working from home, furniture that can seamlessly integrate work and living spaces, like desks that turn into dining tables, are in demand.

Care and Maintenance of Custom Furniture

To ensure your custom furniture remains beautiful and functional for years to come, consider the following tips:

  • Regular Cleaning: Use the right cleaning products for the material, whether it’s wood, metal, or fabric, to keep your furniture in top condition.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade and damage materials, so position your furniture away from direct sun where possible.
  • Protect Surfaces: Use coasters and placemats to protect surfaces from scratches and spills.
