“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.
