In Australia today, most furniture is manufactured offshore. Sulfaro are one of the few remaining local manufacturers, with good reason. At Sulfaro, our accomplished team of skilled craftsmen, seamstresses and framers still take great pride in producing the genuine handcrafted and upholstered furniture it has now been creating for over 50 years.
With both bespoke and traditional design – contemporary modern classics through to genuine traditional European iconic style, Sulfaro continues to produce simply beautiful handcrafted upholstered furniture with a tasteful Italian flourish.
What this doesn’t mean is receiving finished or semi-finished product from Asia and branding it. You can be entirely satisfied that your newly selected lounge suite, sofa, armchairs, occasional chairs or ottoman has been entirely created and finished right here in Melbourne, at our Mitcham factory and workshop.
Family patriarch Nunzio Sulfaro first commenced designing and handcrafting beautiful European and Italian style furniture in the early 1960s, when he first arrived in Australia from Italy. Classically trained as a furniture maker, Nunzio specialised in design, framing, upholstery and finishing to a standard seldom previously seen or experienced in Australia.
Nunzio Sulfaro and his family have introduced new standards of excellence and simply exquisite design over a fifty-year period culminating in the simply masterful range of furniture that today is the Sulfaro Furniture Collection. The tradition continues with son Santo Sulfaro and his highly skilled team of artisans and craftsmen. Even today Nunzio oversees all new designs and the finishing and quality demanded of Sulfaro Furniture.
The choice is yours. Select a handmade, artisan crafted and created Sofa, Armchair, Lounge Suite or Ottoman from master craftsmen, offered with a lifetime guarantee from Sulfaro – or simply a production line sofa and armchairs from a local retailer imported from a third world manufacturer.
