With stage 3 Coronavirus restrictions being re-imposed as of July 9th 2020 for 6 weeks, it’s really time again to get comfortable at home and sit this one out. These are challenging times and more than ever we need the comforts of home to support us through this next six weeks. The Sulfaro team will continue to manufacture during this new lockdown period and our expansive showrooms shall remain open as well, given strict social distancing and hygiene standards and requirements are enforced and observed. Your safety, security and wellbeing as always is our number one concern.
When you visit our showrooms you can be confident that all furniture and surfaces are hygienically cleaned daily to standards that actually exceed the current Health Department requirements.
We recognise that for all of us, comfort is paramount. It may well be that you have determined the need for a new lounge suite or dining setting to cope with the situation of having the family home 24/7 possibly for the next 6 weeks. It’s certainly a time when our sofas, armchairs, dining settings and accessories get quite the work out!
At Sulfaro, all upholstered furniture is designed and manufactured in our modern studio and workshop situated behind our showrooms in Mitcham.
Yes, that’s right, all Sulfaro furniture is made right here in Melbourne. With high quality materials in storage and in good supply, the Sulfaro team will continue to craft and build furniture of the highest standard – truly ‘Australian made’ – throughout the lockdown period.
Sulfaro is not effected by import embargoes or supply issues from overseas sources. We simply do not require imported materials – our furniture is genuinely 100% Australian made.
We’ve said this before and we will continue to say it. In the following months and years (post Coronavirus), it will become critically important to support local manufacturers to maintain Australian employment and local industry.
At Sulfaro we employ local craftsmen and women; Tradespeople such as frame builders, upholsterers and seamstresses. We engage young people in apprenticeships and work experience programs. With the Australian Dollar very likely to fall further over the coming months, this vision and action will become a valuable asset, ensuring the Australian consumer market has continued access to high quality. locally designed product, particularly with furniture.
Local Manufacturing effectively provides ongoing local employment, fosters genuine local craftsmanship and ultimately reduces Australia’s international carbon footprint. This is truly a sustainable proposition and again we express our gratitude for the ongoing support from all of our customers and clients during these difficult times.
For interstate buyers, please visit our website and browse our fabulous Sulfaro Collection. You can select from a superb range of both traditional classic designs and styles as well as the very best in contemporary, modern styles and designs.
For Melbourne and Victorian based clients and customers, our Showrooms are located over two huge stores at 650-652 Whitehorse Rd Mitcham (corner of Cochrane St) approximately 1km from the EastLink Ringwood off-ramps.
Sulfaro is adhering to all Government health recommendations in regard to Covid-19 and will be closely monitoring the advice and guidance of both the Australian Government as well as all local and international health authorities and their recommendations. We will be guided by these recommendations in our actions moving forward over the next few months in particular.
The reality is that our home, its environs, living areas and facilities becomes even more important to our family and our wellbeing in these difficult times. With the imposition of self-isolation and social distancing our home becomes the sanctuary where we seek comfort, security and a sense of protection.
Again, it’s consideration, kindness and generosity that matter. It’s time to look out for one another. Stay safe, stay well.
