Started by nature and finished by hand, AFA Member, Christian Cole Furniture Makers design and hand craft beautiful furniture in their Melbourne factory using sustainable timber and age-old techniques.
Owned by husband and wife team Christian and Fiona Cole, who have built their business based on their life values: You should love what you are doing every day and make life enjoyable and rewarding for the people around you.
Christian Cole pride themselves on their sustainable practices to create their timber furniture.
The timber they use is sourced from either sustainable commercial plantations, bought from farmers who reclaimed the timber years ago, saved from flood waters or is salvaged from existing structures like bridges and old houses, which would have otherwise been destroyed.
Each piece has its own story and Fiona and Christian take the time to learn about the individual heritage of each tree. Indeed, Fiona often photographs the timber when it is found so you can be sure that it has been sourced in a sustainable way.
