When selecting new furniture, we are offered myriad of choices. From superb handcrafted, hand built furniture made right here in Melbourne, through to cheap imported ‘cookie cutter’ pieces found in the big furniture warehouses and barns. Don’t settle for anything less than the highest quality. Choose furniture that’s built for a lifetime – not a few seasons. And Sulfaro Furniture is simply the best – the highest quality available, elegant and truly stylish.
With Sulfaro, handcrafting means applying just that little extra in terms of stitching, cushioning, springs (stainless steel) and framing. Upholstery is the key to quality furniture being built to last. By hand building and handcrafting all Sulfaro furniture we can offer a lifetime guarantee on all workmanship. The end result is a beautiful piece of furniture carefully crafted and created using traditional methods handed down over many generations. From concept to completion, the process is overseen by Master Craftsman Santo Sulfaro, with each stage being lovingly crafted by skilled and trained artisans – upholsterers, frame-makers and seamstresses.
In the past, the trade of Upholstery was known as ‘Upholding’. Furniture as we know it was first crafted over 400 years ago. At first it was the heavy block like furniture of Germany, but with time the introduction of the fine and refined styling of Italian furniture began to influence all European furniture. Furniture in Britain and France started to demonstrate these trends in the 18th and 19th centuries. The elegant furniture of the French Provincial period was a clear demonstration of this transference.
Sulfaro Furniture has its foundation in the traditional Furniture making crafts of Italy and Europe. Following tried and true methodologies is the only way of achieving true comfort, durability and quality in upholstered furniture. From the early 1960s, the Sulfaro brand has produced exquisitely designed high quality upholstered furniture, both in traditional classics and modern contemporary – sofas, armchairs, occasional chairs, dining chairs and tables, ottomans and a full range of gorgeous complimentary accessories – made right here in Melbourne.
And this is the reason you should really consider selecting Sulfaro when you decide to purchase a new lounge suite. A Sulfaro Sofa, Armchair or Dining Setting is built and crafted to last a lifetime at our modern well equipped studios and workshop here in Mitcham, our Melbourne headquarters.
What’s the difference? With Sulfaro you know that should you require repairs or assistance, the manufacturer is a phone call away, you can speak to them directly. The furniture is built to last a lifetime. When you buy cheaper furniture, its use-by date looms from the day you purchase it, a poor investment. You’ll pay a price not dissimilar to what you pay for quality yet again within 5 years there is every likelihood you’ll have to make a similar purchase again.
Buying from Sulfaro Furniture supports local industry, local employment and ultimately Australia’s balance of trade – it protects Australian jobs and the Australian economy.
The durability and quality is down to the extra care, the superior quality materials used – timber framing, cushioning, steel springs and the fabric and leathers selected. It is indeed a very solid investment in your family’s future. But more importantly it’s simply beautiful – sleek lines, smooth warm fabrics and superbly comfortable furniture with genuine support.
