11 Places To Shop Australian-Made Furniture

Shopping for furniture is equal parts exciting and draining. It’s always fun to upgrade your home with something new, but there are so many options out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

That’s why today we’re shining a spotlight on some of our favourite Australian-made furniture brands! These brands and stores are prioritising transparency, sustainability and innovation in the local design industry – and doing it with style!

Pop & Scott

We often see Pop & Scott’s beautifully designed and well-crafted pieces in the homes we feature on TDF. For good reason too, the small, family-run business makes furniture specifically for the Australian lifestyle; simple, practical, timeless, and able to be placed among many different styles and trends.

Partners in life and business, Poppy Lane and Scott Gibson, started out making all the furniture themselves in their own workshop. Now, they outsource the bulk of their production to a small Melbourne furniture maker and upholstery house, but continue to make the lighting and unique furniture pieces in their own workshop.

Idle Hands

Idle Hands is the brainchild of metal fabricator and former ship-builder Kieran Meegan, and artist Rickie-Lee Robbie. Their pieces are distinctive in their look, often proudly colourful and strike the cardinal balance of function and form.

The duo make all their furniture in Melbourne. ‘As a tradesperson, it was natural for me to want to make the pieces myself here in Australia,’ says Kieran. ‘And, over time we’ve seen a lot of benefit from this approach, for example, the ability to customise our pieces for clients. This process also supports other local businesses, and, when we make things ourselves, we don’t need to have everything made in large quantities, which means there is less waste overall.’

Another creative doing beautiful things with metal is Nicole Lawrence, whose softly curved, smooth-edged pieces are also a frequent feature in our TDF homes.

The Melbourne creative launched her studio three years ago and has been producing her made-to-order pieces ever since.

‘I wanted to be able to work closely with my suppliers to realise my pieces,’ says Nicole. ‘I really value being able to drop by and chat through ideas, complications and standards.’

Billy Furniture

Billy Howard cut his teeth working with Melbourne’s Nick McDonald of Made by Morgen until 2017, when Billy Furniture was born.

Billy’s pieces are hard to forget – and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. From flower-shaped side tables to elegantly formed bed frames and dining suites, his ‘devil may care’ approach to design sees him channel ‘the attitude of a rocker and the vibrant flare of an artist’ in his work.

You can find a small range of pieces on his website, however the furniture maker admits he finds custom orders more fulfilling. ‘I enjoy involving the client in the design process,’ Billy says. ‘It makes a piece a little more special if they feel they had some sway in the design.’

Tradie brothers Jack and Mark Fearon launched FEARON in 2019 and it’s been a cult favourite in the Australian design scene ever since.

Now joining the beloved ‘Chub’ – a rounded, colourful stool made from aluminium – are even more playful pieces including the ‘Drew Drawers‘ (a playful set of drawers with big smiley face handles), ‘Float‘ (a sturdy, simple bed frame in their signature chubby style and bold colour), and ‘Bonnie‘ (a bench with zig-zag legs) – to name a few!

Jack says there’s more new designs in the works, including a playful take on lights, desks and rocking chairs coming soon.

James Howe

A self-professed minimalist, James Howe’s furniture designs draw inspiration from what he observes in nature, city landscapes, and ‘utilitarian’ man-made objects. Some of his most impressive pieces include the Rushcutters Bench that features a beautiful hand-woven, hand-dyed Danish paper cord, and the telescope-style Hubble Lamp.

James’s goal is to create ‘beautiful and innovative furniture,’ and says local manufacturing is the best way to achieve this – which also explains the intimate attention to detail that’s embedded within every piece.
