When you review the opinions given on design trends for 2021/22 there are many conflicting opinions. Some say minimalist, some say maximalist, some say grey is ‘in’, some say it’s on the way out. There is a general trend towards sustainable materials, open, multi-use rooms and a more feminine, curved element in upholstered furniture and dining settings. Some reports see the retreat of mid-century modern styles while others consider it a time of the 70’s renaissance. Ultimately it comes down to one thing – what is it that you want? What is the look you’ll be comfortable with, the look that completes your home?
Lockdown has given us time to ponder these things as we look around our home. Fashion in itself can be very fickle. What you simply must have this year can be a faded memory next year. With furniture it’s smart to opt for what is crafted traditionally and to seek the advice of those with expertise and knowledge. Sulfaro offers nearly 60 years’ experience in providing superb quality furniture and craftsmanship and with that comes the ability to guide our clients and customers to discover what will ultimately please them the most.
When family patriarch, Nunzio Sulfaro, and his wife, Francesca, first started their business in the swinging sixties it was all about modernist styles, hip fabrics for the time together with comfortable design. Over the years the Sulfaro team have evolved a spectacular Collection of traditional classic and contemporary furniture. Some enjoy a Hamptons influence whilst others pay homage to classical, European design. It’s a Collection that is constantly added to each year and there’s sure to be a style, a design that suits your taste and requirements. A design that you absolutely love. Furniture that is completely handcrafted and hand-built using the very best in materials, expertly finished by the Sulfaro team of Artisans under the direction of a true Master Craftsman, Santo Sulfaro, the second generation of the Sulfaro furniture making family here in Australia.

In Australia these days much of the furniture on display at retail outlets is imported and mass produced robotically offshore. There is little to distinguish each individual piece from the next with manufacturers applying a cookie cutter approach to all upholstered furniture.
