Camelot Fringe, 3.5 seat Scatterback Sofa

When purchasing furniture, it really is rewarding to select the very best available. A new sofa, armchairs, an ottoman – your choice is often determined on appearance and style, both important and well worth spending time on selecting the setting you really like – you’ll be looking at it, sitting upon it and enjoying it for at least a decade. But the most important consideration is craftsmanship. And you can for a reasonable and similar price, select furniture that is handcrafted, sturdily constructed and supremely comfortable – at Sulfaro.

Sulfaro Furniture is simply of a higher quality than most of its competition. And there is good reason for this. All furniture at Sulfaro is manufactured using tried and true traditional craftsmanship handed down for generations. It is well recognised that much of the world’s most beautiful furniture comes from Italy. At Sulfaro we employ the very same traditions in lovingly crafting a wide range of both contemporary and traditional upholstered furniture for your comfort and enjoyment.

Euro Sofa, 3.5 seat

There is a not so subtle difference in choosing a Sulfaro sofa over a mass produced assembly line sofa from one of the major retailers. At Sulfaro each piece of furniture is hand built by genuine experienced Tradesmen and Artisans. Each piece is an individual creation loving crafted until completion, rigorously tested and quality controlled.

Sulfaro offer customers a very broad range of styles and settings. You can review our Collections here.

Ringwood Sofa, 2.5 seat

Add to this a wonderful range of accessories – lamps, coffee tables, statues, credenzas – all you will need to design the perfect living space for you and your family.

So, the choice is yours – made in Melbourne. Buy a mass produced import from a third world nation at a large retailer, or choose craftsmanship, quality and comfort at Sulfaro. Real European style and artisanship.

When it’s time to purchase a new lounge suite, the choices seem endless. Large branded national homewares stores offer a limited range of imported upholstered Sofas, Armchairs and Accessories. What you see is what you get. Floor stock generally represents your total choice. But what if you could ‘design’ your lounge suite from the ground up?



Legs, feet, skirting, cushions, arm supports, backing, not to mention framing, springs and accessories such as piping, fringeing and castors. Plus a world of choice on fabrics, leathers and materials?

When you choose Sulfaro to handcraft your new Sofa, Armchairs, Ottomans or Dining Chairs, that’s exactly what is available – every time.

At Sulfaro we take your concept, whether it’s a truly bespoke design or the manifesting of something you’ve seen elsewhere, and we then faithfully craft a piece of furniture that completely fulfils your vision. For many people this can mean first reviewing our Sulfaro Collection, selecting a style that appeals, then deciding on fabrics, leather, and finishing – the result? A genuine one-off original piece of hand crafted furniture that reflects both your taste and design preferences.


In our slide show this week we feature a sofa recently developed for a Sulfaro client. The original design was of a one-off architecturally designed sofa that the client appreciated certain elements of – but also wanted to add some further modifications of her own. At Sulfaro we then commenced a design process utilising our Lawrence Sofa from the Signature Collection as the base model for this new sofa. After conferring with Sulfaro’s design team, the decision was made to select a beautiful supple Aniline leather fixed with individually hand applied studs. This is a superb choice of leather, soft and supple to the touch yet durable and hardwearing. As can be seen, the finished result is visually stunning resulting in a simply gorgeous feature sofa.

The Flemington Members Grandstand – Excellence in Architecture and Interior Design

In Melbourne, the Spring Racing Carnival for most people means Flemington and the Melbourne Cup Carnival. This year the Victoria Racing Club, the organisation responsible for conducting the Melbourne Cup Carnival (Derby Day, Melbourne Cup, Oaks Day and Stakes Day), have opened the new Grandstand for VRC Members. For most people there is little opportunity for a viewing, so here for your interest is a sneak peak.

This is the new home of Victorian Thoroughbred Racing, the flagship of the sport – the new Flemington Members Grandstand.

This is no ordinary building. Like a giant layer cake, the Grandstand houses viewing platforms, seating restaurants and bars, the likes of which have never been seen before in Australia.

Designed by leading architect and interior design practice Bates Smart, the 5 level Club stand was completed on schedule by builders Multiplex.

Illustration of the original Flemington Grandstand

Flemington has a long and interesting history. The first grandstand was built on the course in 1865. This structure is the 10th such Grandstand constructed over the last 150 years.

Former members grandstand, now demolished

The Grandstand features ‘petal projections’ along the perimeter of the stand on each floor. This has been achieved using 90 pre-cast panels each weighing up to 30 tonnes.

Bates Smart director of Interior Design Jeff Copolov says the Club Stand celebrates the rich history and character of Flemington Racecourse with sweeping 360-degree views of the Mounting Yard, Race Track, Members Lawn, Parade Ring, Betting Ring and Winning Post.

VRC Chairman Amanda Elliott added that the Club was delighted to reach this significant milestone ahead of its hallmark events in the spring racing season.

Some of the design highlights of the Club Stand include ‘petal’ projections along the perimeter of the stand on each floor constructed using 90 precast panels, each weighing up to 30 tonnes; external walkway on the first floor wrapping around the Club Stand and connected to the existing Members Grandstand and Parade Ring; a new north-south corridor at the heart of the stand linking the Betting Ring with the Members Lawn and Mounting Yard; and the Roof Garden on Level Four offering landscaped open and enclosed spaces beneath canopies.

For some it’s too early to mention the word, yes Christmas. But for many it’s now time to think ahead. The family has expanded. the children are now young adults with their own children. The dining setting that has served you so well is now ‘too small’. It’s time to visit Sulfaro at their Mitcham showrooms and view the fantastic range of Dining Tables and Chairs to suit all tastes and requirements. And why not consider a new lounge suite? – for the same reasons. Sulfaro really does offer you a world of choice.

At Sulfaro we are proud of the fact that we manufacture our extensive collection of Sofas, Armchairs, Ottomans, Occasional Chairs and Dining Chairs right here in Melbourne.

All Sulfaro furniture is either handmade and crafted on our premises or selected on these criteria. Many furniture makers claim to handcraft and manufacture locally, but even to the untrained eye it’s obvious that for many brands this is simply not the case.

Not so with Sulfaro. Here at Sulfaro we follow a proud tradition of genuine European Craftsmanship handed down through generations of furniture makers and upholsterers. Sulfaro originally commenced producing elegant hand made European styled furniture in 1962 right here in Melbourne. The processes to produce truly beautiful, superb furniture remains the same now as they were then with founder Nunzio Sulfaro still on hand to guide his son Santo in the traditional ways of upholstery, and wood work. You may be familiar with the phrase ‘cut corners’? it’s an interesting phrase and it’s suggested it originated in the furniture and upholstery industry. It suggests a cut to save money.


All Sulfaro Furniture is genuinely hand made using the full length of fabric, cloth or leather to produce exquisite traditional and contemporary furniture. We simply do not cut corners.

Sulfaro Furniture designs include hand tied coil springing using contemporary methodologies. Sulfaro framing is made form high quality kiln-dried hardwood and is corner blocked for rigidity and strength. Cushioning used is of the highest grades of Dunlop foam. Sulfaro offers a range of polishes and finishes. Provide us with a sample of your selections on colour or timber and our expert staff will match it from our extensive range of world class fabrics, leathers, timber and painted finishes. (Painted and antique style polishing is available upon quotation.) You can also choose from a range of piping and studding options as well as a range of castors.

And maybe with the expanded family unit it’s time to consider a new lounge suite as well! Sulfaro offer an excellent range of Corner Sofas as well as traditional sized Sofas (3 seater, 2 1/2 seater and 2 seaters), all with matching armchairs and ottomans as required. Pictured here are some of our corner units.
