Sulfaro – 100% Australian Made. Quality, Craftsmanship and Impeccable Design

In today’s world of mass produced sameness there is always a quiet spot, a place where true Artisans patiently ply their craft doing the things they’ve always done without fuss or bother, creating the beautiful, the unique in the way it’s meant to be – with passion, precision and a love of the art. Crafting and hand building fine furniture is an art in itself and it’s an art that here, at Sulfaro, we are deeply passionate about and immensely proud of what we produce.

In the 1960’s when many families emigrated from Europe, the culture in Australia gradually shifted. The new arrivals brought with them an eye for classic beauty, a richness, a love of colour, design and finesse. It was during this period that the Sulfaro family first began to manufacture and sell beautifully crafted, hand-built furniture to what was, in effect, a changing world.

The market now called for the newly popular mid-century modern lounge suites, chairs, coffee tables, exotic buffets and credenzas, with fabulous lighting – it was a far cry from the mass produced sameness evident in all the big Department Stores of the times. It was then in this environment that Nunzio Sulfaro established his business and the Sulfaro brand and what it stood for – innovation, style, truly elegant design and absolute premium quality.

The Sulfaro journey had begun and over the last nearly sixty years the Sulfaro Collection has grown and flourished. Owned and managed by the Sulfaro family the business has continued to expand, combining a stunning collection of superb classics with new and trending bespoke creations each new season. 

The success of the business can be measured by its two unbreakable foundations. Firstly the whole creative process – templates, frame making, upholstery and finishing occurs wholly and completely here in Australia at our Mitcham (Melbourne) studios and workshop. All works are completed by our fabulously talented team of Artisans, Tradespeople and Craftsmen – no outsourcing, no imported, partially completed furniture. Each individual piece is fully crafted at Sulfaro exclusively. 

Essentially what has happened in the furniture trade is that 90% of what is currently on display in the large furniture ‘warehouses’ and outlets is wholly imported. There are a few variables in design or components. Often the furniture is robotically manufactured using cheap labour off-shore with designs simply being copies or ‘knock-offs’ from original European designs.

Advertising and distribution costs extract a high proportion of your purchase price with the remainder being divided between the importers and the off-shore manufacturers. Very little goes toward promoting local industry or the Australian economy. 

Compare this to purchasing from Sulfaro. When you select Sulfaro your purchase prices supports a genuine local industry and its local workers. Sulfaro always prefer to use locally (Australian) sourced materials such as framing, cushioning, springs, wadding, fabrics and leathers. This further advantages the local economy and jobs. As well, Sulfaro not only support local Tradespeople and Artisans but also engage Apprentices and offer Work Experience to local youth interested in a career in furniture making, upholstery and design.

Made in Australia isn’t just a logo or an advertising campaign, it’s a far better way to buy. With Sulfaro you are purchasing stunning furniture, handcrafted by experts and supervised by Master Craftsmen. So when repairs, alterations or restoration is required the Sulfaro team is just a phone call away, not a continent.

Sulfaro – It’s simply the best

Interior Design Trends for 2021/22? At Sulfaro it’s Classic and Contemporary,Traditional? Ultimately it’s What Pleases You

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. 

Customisation

As a Sulfaro client you have the opportunity to make a selection from our extensive Collection and its Catalogue Sections and then to take a truly individual approach to the final look and feel of your new furniture – lounge suites, sofas, armchairs, occasional chairs or dining settings. 

Simply schedule a time (virtual or in person post-lockdown) by calling 03 9872 4608 to discuss and plan your new furniture (or simply leave your details here for a prompt reply). You have the opportunity to select the fabrics or leathers of your choice from our extensive collection of materials we have gathered from the best fabric houses and fine leather purveyors, both here in Australia and world-wide. You can then select the accessories you desire – buttoning, piping, skirting, fringing, cushioning, timber finishing and more – truly bespoke, truly unique.

All dining chairs are finished with matching fabrics or leathers, handcrafted and hand-built for durability, strength and in superb complementary designs. 

Australian Made

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.

Your purchase benefits a local Australian industry, Australian workers and the Australian economy.

Interior Design with Sulfaro. Trends for 21/22

Time to redecorate and refresh your home and its living areas? Over the last few months we have had time to consider and appraise the interior design and furnishings of our homes. To assist you in your deliberations here is an article from Better Homes and Gardens by Tahni Mesann, published earlier this year:

‘10 Interior Design Trends You’ll See Everywhere in 2021’

New year, new trends. – by Tahni Mesann  – 13 January, 2021.

It’s 2021, which means new interior design trends to explore. So which interior design trends will dominate our homes in 2021/22? The global pandemic has definitely had an impact on the type of homes we want to create. Rather than pack everything away in the name of minimalism, as we have been for years, we’re now looking to create places filled with objects that reflect our passions, places that facilitate our desire to take up a new hobbies and places that can quickly shift from  to work, play and relaxation. 

We also want to create a home that allows us to catch up safely with friends, family and colleagues by rethinking our outdoor entertaining spaces and our home office setups. There is also an increasing desire to reconnect with nature and interior design, as a result, is moving away from hard lines and edges and veering towards warm neutral tones, organic, curved shapes, floral prints and colour. 

Here are 10 interior design trends you now see everywhere in 2021. 

1. Warm neutrals

Cool neutral tones like black, white and grey ruled supreme throughout the early 2000s, but the time has come for warm neutrals to have their moment in the spotlight. Dulux’s Colour Trend Forecast showcased the Grounded palette, which featured Dulux Pancake Mix and Grey Reflection as warm neutral options to consider this year.

2. Curves and organic shapes

In the 2000s and 2010s, straight lines and hard edges conveyed a feeling of stability and efficiency. Entering a new decade during a global pandemic, we’re looking for interiors that soothe and cocoon. 

One way designers are working to achieve this feeling is by embracing curves. You’ll see everything from chunky, curvaceous furniture and rounded edges as well as the return of arched doorways.

3. A nod to nostalgia

A love of nostalgic interiors will continue in 2021. While mid century modern style and the 70s boho look have both been on-trend for some time, an 80s aesthetic is steadily growing in popularity. 

Prepare to see a whole lot more curved lines, square tiles in bathrooms, and geometric patterns and prints – all elements that make up a distinct 80s look. 

4. Colour

Entering the new design decade, you’ll probably feel a little like Dorothy stepping into the land of Oz – there’s finally colour after years living in a monochrome world.

Splashes of bold colour International Klein Blue and Pantone’s 2021 Colour of the Year ‘Illuminating’ yellow are the hues to embrace in 2021. 

5. Curated maximalism

Lockdowns and a shift to working from home has meant that we’ve all spent a lot more time at home lately. Rather than become bored by the same four walls, many have turned to decorating their home in a way that energises, uplifts and inspires – and this means collecting and displaying collected objects, photographs, vases, indoor plants and artwork. 

The key here is to make the items look curated, rather than cluttered.

6. Cottagecore

Reconnecting with nature, a slower pace of living, and a return to simpler hobbies and activities have led a resurgence in the country cottage aesthetic, now referred to online as ‘cottagecore’. 

The cottagecore aesthetic comprises whimsical objects, floral prints, natural fabrics, freshly picked flowers, wallpaper and distressed antique furniture. 

7. Eye on textiles

Another way to add comfort and style to your home in 2021 is to layer living spaces with tactile textiles. While the obsession with linen bedding continues, we’ll also gravitate to other fabrics, including boucle, velvet and chenille. 

8. Home offices

According to a survey conducted by Roy Morgan, nearly a third of all Australian employees worked from home in 2020. That means having an office space at home is now a must. While dedicated office rooms are wonderful for those with the luxury of space, others have been transforming everything from hallways to upstairs landings into handy office nooks.

9. Room for activities

Making space in our homes for things like baking, boardgames, sewing and making pottery has become a priority and an act of self-care. DIY projects were one of the top Google searches in 2020 and as a result, craft rooms for children and adults alike will become popular home additions. Other activity rooms we may see more frequently in homes are dedicated exercise rooms, yoga rooms and meditation stations. 

Other home design trends that are likely to take hold in 2021 include the use of antibacterial building materials and adaptable home layouts.

10. Indoor outdoor living 

For years, Australians have loved the idea of seamless indoor outdoor living spaces. This trend will only continue grow in 2021, with a renewed focus on treating the outdoors as an extension of the home. Fire pitspergolas, pool cabanas and alfresco dining spaces will be at the top of many home improvement checklists this year.

Sulfaro ‘Why Italian Craftsmanship is Superior to Everything Else’

Sulfaro is a business steeped in the traditional craftsmanship of Italian furniture making where excellence and innovation in design meets the supreme quality, dedication and finish of true artisanship. Italian design is recognised world-wide for its creativity, functionality and understated elegance. Here in Australia Sulfaro continues the tradition.

This week we offer an interview from Architectural Digest.com with one of Italy’s foremost furniture designers, Roberto Minotti. For us, at Suflaro, the foundations remain the same – craftsmanship, quality – hand-built, innovative, elegant design with one very important difference. All Sulfaro furniture is 100% Australian made. 

Why Italian Craftsmanship Is Superior to Everything Else

Legendary furniture mogul Roberto Minotti explains the history and quality of his country’s design tradition

By Hadley Keller

There’s no doubt that Italians know good design. From Ettore Sottsass’s whimsical Memphis furniture to Gio Ponti’s sleek wares, Italy has been a leader in innovative, beautiful, and high-quality design for decades. Since 1948, Minotti has been a part of that legacy. The family-owned company has made a name for itself producing high-quality furniture that both references Italy’s design history and maintains a fresh aesthetic. AD chatted with Minotti CEO Roberto Minotti (who runs the company alongside his brother and co-CEO, Renato) to hear more about the history of Italian manufacturing, and just what makes the country’s products so superior.

Architectural Digest: Can you tell us more about the history of Minotti and how the brand started?

Roberto Minotti: Alberto Minotti, our father, founded the company in 1948. In that postwar time, the Italian economy quickly started to boom again, and the small workshop soon grew into a modern factory employing dozens of craftsmen. The next big step was when my brother, Renato, and I decided to bring the brand onto the international scene in the early ’80s. Nowadays the company is distributed in over 70 countries, and the network of flagship stores includes 31 showrooms, located in the main cities all over the world.

AD: Why do you think so many reputable design brands come out of Italy?

 RM: Italy has always been the cradle of high-quality craftsmanship. Minotti is located in Brianza, the so-called design district, which is halfway between Milan and Lake Como. It is a well-to-do area, in which over the past two centuries noble and affluent families built many villas, for which highly qualified craftsmen were required in order to furnish these beautiful homes. This explains why there is such a fine know-how in this area that cannot be found elsewhere in Italy. In more recent times, since the 1950s, the entrepreneurs of this area collaborated with famous Italian and foreign architects, creating very special relationships that made possible the creation of a great number of iconic furnishings and lamps.

AD: What makes Italian craftsmanship unique?

RM: All the best Italian-made products meld tradition and technology in an indissoluble way: Artisan expertise puts the finishing touches to products that are manufactured employing cutting-edge production methods, while intelligent hands lend sensitivity and emotion to industrial precision.

AD: What makes handcrafted products special?

RM: Because anybody can perceive their uniqueness, their not being mass-produced products. Every detail conveys the idea of the craftsmanship that’s behind any handmade product. Minotti sticks to this attitude while manufacturing ever-increasing quantities.
