After previewing all the wonderful furniture by Jardan this week, today is your first chance to come on down to The Design Files Open House and see it all in REAL LIFE! Yippee! Take a seat on the Milo sofa or have a coffee and enjoy the new turned stools out on the roof deck. And be sure to say 'Hello'! -Jenny

Jardan is best known for our comfy sofas and chairs, it is where we started and remains a huge part of our business. Our sofa range is still expanding as we develop new product to meet our client’s needs.

Today we’d like to introduce to you a couple of fellas in our dedicated upholstery team, who have been in the trade for many of years.  Each design starts in our R&D department, where the new designs are sketched-up, prototyped and tested for comfort. Our awesome team of cutters, sewers, frame-builders and upholsterers hand craft each and every piece that leaves our factory. It is all about the love, care and detail!

When it comes to timber, we like the natural beauty of each species to shine through. For our new range, our team have selected recycled timbers with a rustic grain and natural cracks, which will weather well in the outdoor environment. During The Design Files Open House event you will get to see our brand new turned stools. We’ve used a traditional wood-turning method to create a collection where each piece is unique and distinctive.
