The latter half of the 20th century witnessed the downfall of traditional furniture designs that featured ornate carvings, labour intensive wood working, handmade designs and artisanal craftsmanship, in general, the demand for ostentatious and conspicuous furniture saw its demand tapering off.
Instead, the demand for minimalistic, funky & unconventional designs and styling came into being, the art deco, art noveau and industrial design movement began around this era & designers, architects and established big box retailers abandoned vintage style furniture to make way for these designs
While these furniture styles are special & there are legitimate reasons as to why they became popular in the first place, today, these designs have become largely standardized and they seem to lack character.... this has also resurrected the demand for antique & vintage furniture not just among residential buyers but also from commercial businesses
The quality of antique vintage furniture is also inextricably linked to the skill & crafting techniques of the artisan. Recreating well-known vintage designs and making them in bulk quantities is not particularly easy, it takes multiple trial and error attempts before we are satisfied with the strength, rigidity & finish. Moreover, keeping costs low while not relying on machinery for key tasks is crucial, this is also why we outsource monotonous workflows to the robots and allow only the finest, skilled workers to work on the intricate crafting tasks
To ensure that our customers here in Australia do not end up with characterless furniture that has flooded in the market today, we've made buying wholesale quantities of antique furniture absolutely seamless and cost-effective through our network of local partners, sister import agencies and a state-of-the-art off-shore manufacturing facility
