OK, I understand
Ok so I admit it, I have a few favourites. No surprises there. What can I say? I just get a bit excited about beautifully designed, great quality product - and if it's made in Australia, even better. As you may know, Melbourne-based furniture designers and manufacturers Jardan are way up there on my notorious favourites list (hey, at least I admit it!).
Jardan make the most stunning furniture right here in Melbourne. You may remember I once visited their incredible and very busy workshop in Mount Waverley... I was so thrilled to see their full range, from upholstered chairs and couches to coffee tables, dining tables and cabinetry, all being expertly produced locally. (And GECA certified too!). A rare and beautiful thing. I've been a fan every since. I highly recommend their beautiful custom-made pieces (if you 'like' TDF on facebook, you may recall I finally splashed out on a proper 'grown-up' couch from Jardan a few months ago! Aghh soooo special!)
Like all the very best design companies, Jardan doesn't sit still for very long. No sooner have they launched one new range, than another appears! Recently they launched a bunch of new product at Saturday in Design in Sydney - including the gorgeous 'Bandy' range pictured above. There is something so brilliantly retro about this turned timber range - I love the weighty solid timber and those killer curves!
ALSO, this year Jardan are dipping their toe in the retail market with a brand new retail showroom in Brisbane - exciting times! Until now Jardan have worked only in the wholesale market - dealing directly with architects, interior designers and retailers. Brisbane customers, however, now have the opportunity to shop in Jardan's first ever retail store... and it looks amazing! A massive warehouse in Fortitude Valley, styled to perfection with all Jardan's signature pieces in store (plus a range of Loom rugs!), this fab new showroom is sure to gather a loyal local following before long!
Please note that Jardan does not currently sell direct to the public in any other capital cities - purchases can be made elsewhere in Australia through an interior designer / architect, or retailers listed here.
