Luxury and Design – Handcrafted Quality Furniture from Sulfaro – Made in Australia exclusively

It’s time to replace your ageing Lounge Suite. With plenty of options to choose from, the only selection really worth considering is of course Sulfaro. The Sulfaro Collection is an immaculate selection of hand built, handcrafted upholstered furniture made right here in Melbourne.

The Sulfaro team are genuine artisans – classically trained tradespeople specialising in Furniture Making – Framing, Upholstery, Fabric and Leather work – true craftsmen and women creating and completing fine furniture by hand – master craftsmen.

Most furniture offered for sale in Australia is manufactured in China or other third world nations such as India, Indonesia, the Phillipines or Malaysia. Generally this involves a robotic process with pre-purchased, pre-made framing, standard fabrics and inferior cushioning, springs and other components. These are mass-produced budget items that unfortunately here in Australia are often priced as quality furniture. Quite frankly it’s anything but. Your choice of colours and fabrics is entirely limited and your suite or sofa is often sold without any realistic guarantee.

So why else should you select Sulfaro? The Sulfaro Collection covers a very broad range of designs, styling and influences.

The ‘Sulfaro Experience’ is entirely unique. Firstly ALL furniture in the Sulfaro Collection is individually hand built. Qualified tradesmen and artisans create each piece from the framing to the final finishing entirely by hand. Our modern Studio and Workshop is extremely well set up with the latest in tooling and equipment. All Staff are traditionally trained in frame making, upholstery and furniture making, and are fully professional and industry experienced.

The Lounge suite you purchase from Sulfaro is individually crafted from beginning to end with passion and skill, in much the same way upholstered furniture has been fashioned for centuries.

You, the customer get to choose the fabrics or leather for your selected Sofa, Armchair or dining chairs. Sulfaro offer a wonderful catalogue and a vast collection of fabrics, materials and leathers from the world’s leading suppliers and Fabric Houses.

Select the colour, the fabric mix, the cushioning, piping, skirting and casters. Custom design your lounge suite to suit your interior design and lifestyle. In the end with Sulfaro’s assistance, it is truly ‘your’ lounge suite. A masterpiece.

What would you prefer? A truly individual custom designed unit that reflects your taste and preferences, or an ‘off the shelf’ (one of many) manufactured second rate cookie cutter knock off copy. Same price but definitely not the same quality.

Sulfaro Furniture offers both traditional and contemporary styles and designs, as can be seen here and also on our website. With nearly 60 years experience in the creation of fine furniture, our clients enjoy true European Craftsmanship and Italian Styling, with furniture built to last a lifetime. In fact, we guarantee our furniture and workmanship to last a lifetime.

Beautifully crafted hand-built furniture. The very best in timbers, cushioning and fabrics. The result? Pure comfort and absolute luxury. Guaranteed! Why settle for less? Design, Quality, Comfort – real luxury – or a cheap copy that will be spent in 5 years maximum.

But don’t just take our word for it, take the time to schedule a visit. Call 03 9872 4608 now and book a time with our Design team and Retail Manager Amelia Sulfaro.

Sulfaro Furniture is an entirely different proposition. Each piece is crafted individually from template to final presentation. No short cuts, not robotics, but skilled tradesmen, seamstresses, frame makers and upholsterers ensure every last stitch is placed impeccably. And at Sulfaro we are so confident of the workmanship we give you a lifetime guarantee on it. Our customers are often so impressed with the Sulfaro craftsmanship that they will come back to either refurbish or reupholster their original Sulfaro Lounge suite.

Select Quality, Select Craftsmanship – Sulfaro – Proudly Australian Made


“The secret of our success is no secret”

With Sulfaro’s Summer Sale in full swing, it’s the perfect time to make your selection from the exciting Sulfaro Collection – hand built and crafted by Australian artisans, designed exclusively by Sulfaro’s experienced team right here in Melbourne. Fine Furniture at its very best.

For many, the first option is a Harvey Norman, an A-Mart, a Focus on Furniture or a Fantastic Furniture. The prices seem attractive, the furniture looks ‘ok’, but the reality is it’s cheap for a very good reason. All upholstered furniture at these outlets is generally imported from Third World locations such as China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. Materials are selected based entirely on cost. Each Sofa, Armchair or accessory is mass produced and exported to Australia, the US, Canada and Europe. The actual manufacturing process involves several factories creating components, mostly using industrial robotics. The final product is a consolidation of all components. The end product is then sold to a trading company which in turn sells it to high volume, high turnover Australian retailers such as Harvey Norman, A-Mart and those mentioned earlier. 90% of Australian retailers are also consolidators. Buyers travel to Asia and purchase product from various manufacturers. Furniture may come from up to 20 different sources. They do not manufacture, design or finish the products sold. At these stores, the choice of fabrics, colours or accessories is entirely limited. What you see is what you get.


Which is precisely why it is such a defining choice to select from Sulfaro Furniture. All Sulfaro Sofas, Lounge Suites, Armchairs, Occasional Chairs and accessories are:

  • Designed in Australia
  • Handcrafted in Australia
  • All materials are selected here in Australia for Australian conditions – memory foam cushioning, steel springs, kiln-dried hardwood for framing – Australian materials wherever possible.
  • Guarantee on Workmanship for the life of the furniture


The Sulfaro Collection is entirely original, designed with European elegance and deft Italian styling. It is premium furniture, hand built, hand crafted by Master Craftsmen. Why settle for a cheap reproduction, a ‘knock off’ of a popular line, built to sell, not to last?


We invite you to visit our extensive showrooms in Mitcham, located at 650-652 Whitehorse Rd the Sulfaro Showrooms provide a wonderful opportunity to select the style and comfort you truly desire. It’s simply an experience, the Sulfaro experience. Take the time to schedule a visit, take a seat on your preferred sofa, sit back, relax – it’s a genuine hand built, hand crafted Sulfaro masterpiece.


It’s also comfortable to know that at Sulfaro our design team is available to assist you with your enquiries. Amelia Sulfaro and her team can assist in determining the right selection, the right style to suit your home; select the colours or material blends, the leather and the accessories such as piping, skirting or fringe for your new lounge suite. At Sulfaro you have the option of making these decisions. It is just not a ‘cookie cutter’ operation. The Sulfaro fabric and leather catalogue is immense. It includes the very best available from the world’s leading suppliers. But best of all, you get to choose what pleases you. You, the customer get to choose the look and feel of your new lounge suite. It’s as individual as you are.
