We recently visited the Arthur G factory to check out their full range ahead of the upcoming sale this Saturday and Sunday (1-2 June). We were so excited to visit their Huntingdale factory and get a peek behind the scenes of this 35+ year old Melbourne institution. Not many businesses can boast that their works have been hand crafted in Melbourne since the 1970s, and that’s something that makes Arthur G truly special. We’ve put together a range of mini collections to showcase some of our favourite items that are going to be on sale this weekend (up to 70% off!), but you’ll have to check it out in person for the full range!Read More

We welcome ‘Studio’ the newest collection by Jardan. A thoughtful collection designed to be practical and flexible in a home-office environment or professional studio.
The collection offers a great range of options and and customisation such as different finishes and configurations.

These design choices bridge the gap between work and home environments creating durable and functional furniture that also looks beautiful and feels great.Read More
