Decor and Design Melbourne 2019, July 18th – 21st

For Interior Designers and Decorators, the Decor and Design Exhibition is a very significant event. In its 16th year, this year’s event promises to be very exciting.

The event attracts design and retail interest from across Australia. Last year over 11,500 attended the exhibition and its events, showcasing 350 exhibitors, providing inspiration and innovation to an industry now firmly following global trends. It is a TRADE ONLY event, and for those participants attending admission is free. Pre-registration is required.

The Vivid design competition, an event showpiece, is now in its 15th year. It is Australia’s longest running design competition and award program. It is presented as a vehicle for young and emerging designers to profile their creativity and direction in interior design, lighting and similar endeavours.


This year’s International Seminar series is sponsored by ‘Australian House and Garden’. The theme is ‘Global Village’, largely driven by changing technology altering the manner in which we communicate; and the different groups emerging via Technology that challenge traditional media and association.


On Friday the 19th of July Luciana Walls, Warwick Fabrics’ Design Manager, and Tigger Hall of Tigger Hall Studios will be speaking as part of the International Seminar series.


The focus on the ‘Global Village’ will explore the manner in which we now communicate and how here in Australia we are far more responsive and greatly influenced by such Global Trends. With Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and YouTube, what is happening in Europe is now immediate – it can’t be ignored.

The Decor and Design 19 exhibition is located at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre along with the year’s largest furniture trade show – The Australian International Furniture Fair adjacent. This show features a wide range of International and some local furniture.

‘Some local’ because frankly much of what is available via retail in Australia is in fact imported.

For Sulfaro this is quite significant. The Sulfaro Collection is 100% Australian made – right here in Melbourne at our Mitcham factory.


Our methods, craftsmanship and design skills are founded on European and Italian traditions going back centuries. With a modern workshop you can be totally confident that each item of Sulfaro Furniture is genuinely hand made. We select fabrics, leathers and materials from the world’s leading fabric houses and suppliers. The end result is absolute quality, comfort and finesse. Design excellence coupled with true luxury.

It’s simply the best option in selecting Sulfaro. With a lifetime guarantee you are in fact purchasing the very best upholstered furniture and accessories available. Whether it’s a lounge suite, sofa, armchairs, ottoman or dining setting, when it’s from Sulfaro you can be confident you have truly made the right decision.

Visit our showrooms 7 days per week at 650-652 Whitehorse Rd Mitcham (Cnr of Cochrane St). We are 1km west of the Eastlink Ringwood. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday whilst Sundays we open between 11am until 4pm.

Take the time to come out and visit us. Select your favourite sofa or armchair and be seated. Touch, feel and admire, total comfort, exquisite design – it’s simply the best.

Sulfaro – It’s an experience.

Refresh and Renew with Sulfaro – Timeless Classics, Superb Quality.

Every now and again it happens. One of our customers has asked us to recover and restore one of our lounge suites. In this case it was purchased from Sulfaro in 1990. The framing and springs are still in good condition but as part of our service in restoration we check all aspect of the furniture’s upholstery. In a few weeks time, the sofa and armchairs will be returned re-covered in selected fabrics with foam, cushioning and fabrics as new and the pieces are well on their way to being genuine classics, reupholstered and refreshed.


This is possible because at Sulfaro our furniture is handcrafted and constructed to the highest quality standards. A Sulfaro sofa, armchair, or occasional chair is built to last you a lifetime – and our team of artisans, craftsmen and seamstresses are here to make sure it does. As can be seen even up to 30 years later!


Sometimes it’s just time to recover your Sulfaro furniture. A lady returned this week to arrange the re-covering of her lounge suite she purchased 12 years ago. Sales Manager and Design consultant Amelia Sulfaro demonstrated a range of fabric suitable to suit both the customer’s budget and taste.

A classic Sulfaro sofa or lounge setting is timeless, it simply never goes out of fashion. You can view our range of Traditional/European and Classic/Hamptons here . Sumptuous, luxurious and supremely comfortable, handcrafted with real quality and finesse.


Many people have family heirloom pieces of classic and antique furniture, often in need of restoration and refurbishing. Loved and cherished, the owners often face a genuine dilemma – who can they trust to care for and restore these beautiful yet fragile pieces of upholstered furniture? Occasional Chairs, Chaise Lounges, Sofas, Armchairs, Ottomans – often built and crafted by skilled artisan up to 100 years ago.

For this task it is imperative you choose the right company to restore your valuable antique or classic furniture, a workshop where the artisans, upholsterers and seamstresses understand both the framing and specialist methodologies utilised in creating such exquisite furniture.

At Sulfaro, you can be completely confident that the team are both competent and experienced in the skills required, and that they have the knowledge and expertise to faithfully and correctly restore your cherished heirloom. Nunzio Sulfaro, the family patriarch who established the business in 1962 was trained in all such techniques as a young man in Italy. Over the years he has guided both his son Santo (now the factory and overall business manager) and the many tradesmen, upholsterers and seamstresses in those valuable techniques and methodologies.

Sulfaro will select the right fabrics or leathers to maintain the unit’s authenticity – framing, webbing, hand tied steel springs and cushioning, as well as piping, casters, and timber finishing.

Our team will apply the same diligence, care and ultimately love for your furniture piece as was applied when it was first manufactured. To be truthful, probably just that little bit more.

Using the finest materials and applying absolute attention to detail, your favourite piece of furniture will be returned to you as good as new – ready for another 100 years of comfort, luxury and style.


And if, in the most unfortunate of circumstances, your cherished lounge, sofa, armchair or occasional chair is beyond redemption, let Sulfaro recommend a suitable replacement from our extensive collection.
