Support the Australian made furniture industry and contribute to a vibrant Economy
The history of the Australian made furniture industry stretches back to the birth of our country. Initially, furniture was imported from Britain, but by the 1830s the Australian made furniture industry had officially commenced operations in Sydney.
Today, the Australian made furniture industry is an important contributor to the economic stability and wealth of our country. With an estimated value of $27.4 billion, its main areas of production are residential furnishings, commercial and hospitality. The Australian made furniture industry is also a key manufacturer employer, with direct manufacturing accounting for approximately 100,000 jobs. The industry also contributes to thousands of jobs in upstream and downstream industries, such as the retail sector.
The ingenuity of the Australian made furniture industry is reflected in its diverse product range. From bedroom and dining furniture, to quality made lounge suites, functional office furniture and stunning occasional furniture items; Australian consumers are spoiled for choice. Each piece is crafted by dedicated designers and manufacturers that have perfected their skills over many years.
The Australian furniture industry has a reputation around the world for producing beautifully crafted durable products. Our indigenous timbers lend themselves to innovative and enduring designs, uniquely distinct from the masses of generically produced furniture.
The Australian made furniture industry is also committed to using sustainably sourced timber products, thus ensuring the continuing health of our environment.
