Fully Customisable

Have you spent hours trawling up and down massive store floors stocked full of furniture that isn’t right for you and your home? Only then to find something and it’s not the right size or colour? So much time wasted! Buying WA custom made furniture will mean these nightmares are a thing of the past, providing you with a range of customisable features on all pieces so you get the exact look you want in the exact size you need.

On WA Made lounges and modulars, you not only have the choice of fabric or leather, but your options within fabric and leather are (almost) endless. Australia has a number of fabric houses that bring in fabric from all over the world and from the biggest and best brands. In terms of leather, we prefer to source ours from New Zealand. We believe they produce the best leather in the world, using ethical animal welfare procedures and environmentally sound tanning processes, all very important to us here at Lifestyle. Once you have decided on fabric or leather, you can then customise everything from length, width, the seat height, the seat depth, the sofa arms, choice of leg, even down to the density and feel of the foam in your cushions! You also have a similar range of choice on WA custom Made dining tables, buffets, beds and tv units. A large range of timbers is usually your first decision; West Australian Marri, Australian Oak, Jarrah, and Walnut to name a few. WA manufacturers also give a choice of finish, from matte low gloss, to sandblasted, to high shine, they can produce the look that you desire. Don’t forget to choose your dining table base and the handles and doors on your buffet as well! Did I mention you can have stone table tops as well? So many options!

Price

You may think that for a fully customised piece with the best components and manufactured to the highest standard right here in WA that you would be up for ten, fifteen or even twenty thousand dollars, well here’s the best part, for the quality you receive, WA made furniture is extremely affordable.

Longevity & Design

Good design doesn’t go out of fashion. A well-designed piece of furniture will last through trends and fads and become an heirloom that you can pass down or it will hold its value and allow you to sell for a good price if you choose to. We still have designs that we have been selling for ten years plus and they look as good as they day we put them on the floor!

Lead Times

The standard lead time these days for an imported piece of furniture is twelve to sixteen weeks, with some blowing out to more than twenty weeks! Can you believe that? I can’t wait two minutes for a coffee, let alone twenty weeks for a sofa. When you can get a full customised locally made piece to your door in six to eight weeks, why would you buy anything else!

Environment

The environmental positives that are generated by buying WA custom made furniture are substantial. Our manufacturing processes in Perth are of the highest environmental standard with regard to glues, resins and manufacturing by-products. This is in stark contrast to the chemicals and processes used overseas that are outdated and obsolete, and not only are they harmful to the environment, but could also be harmful to your health. You then need to factor in the negative environmental impacts generated by shipping thousands and thousands of tonnes of furniture through our oceans, and finish with the staggering amount of imported furniture that goes into landfill. All of this for a poorly made and low-quality product that gets thrown out in a year or two. It’s all so unnecessary folks!

Repair

In the event that something does go wrong with your beautifully handcrafted piece of WA custom made furniture, someone will actually be able to fix it! With most imported pieces, repair is just not an option. Poor construction and poor techniques mean that repair will be time-consuming and hence expensive, so furniture repairers will tend to steer clear of your sofa, it will go out on the verge and you’ll have to start all over again!

Frame and Foam

We have been using the same frame making shop right here in Perth for the last twenty years. You know that you are getting a well-constructed piece from the ground up. Same goes with our foams. We use only the highest quality foams and feather wraps, manufactured right here in WA using environmentally friendly processes and chemicals.
