The Sulfaro Furniture story started here in Melbourne over 60 years’ ago. Founded by Nunzio Sulfaro, the business commenced producing stylish and elegant European designed furniture for an increasingly discerning market. Today Sulfaro offer an extensive range of both classic and contemporary furniture created exclusively here in Australia utilising the very best in components, fabrics, fine leathers, framing, cushioning and more. Luxury, comfort, superb design and the most exacting of standards ensure a quality that is unsurpassed.
The Sulfaro studios and workshop are located behind the company’s showrooms in Mitcham, Melbourne. Master Craftsman, Santo Sulfaro, the son of the late Nunzio Sulfaro, manages the full manufacturing process, supervising a highly skilled team of Artisans and Tradesmen and Tradeswomen in producing the very best, the finest in upholstered furniture and accessories. It is furniture that will last a lifetime and, as such, all workmanship is guaranteed for a lifetime.
Australian Made – 100%
Made in Australia means the standards applied are far superior to those of most imported furniture. The reality is that the vast majority of the upholstered furniture in Australia – lounge suites, sofas and armchairs is imported from Asia. Factory production lines replicate the same designs using robotic equipment and unskilled labour. Materials are often sub-standard, basically to meet budget requirements. It’s a ‘cookie cutter’ methodology leaving little or no room for individual flair, vision and, ultimately, offering a very reduced choice.
Australian Made at Sulfaro means the item of furniture is individually created from conception and design through to the finished piece of furniture. Framing is first grade Australian hardwood with stainless steel springs and selected premium cushioning, then combined with selected fabrics or fine leathers to create absolute comfort and real luxury.
The really big advantage at Sulfaro is the option of selecting the fabrics, the leathers and the accessories for your new lounge suite, sofa or chair. With skilled Artisans actually hand building and crafting your new furniture this lends itself to enabling a variety of options in terms of accessories always available for our customers. Choose from our extensive selection of fine fabrics and leathers gathered over time from both Australia’s and the world’s leading fabric houses and leather suppliers with new additions and trending materials added regularly. Choose from different styles of buttoning, piping, skirting, fringing and cushioning. Create the furniture you desire to meet with your vision and your individual taste confident in the knowledge that it is 100% Australian Made using Australian materials and components wherever and whenever possible.
