The Sulfaro Spring Sale – Handcrafted Excellence

With the Spring Racing Carnival in full swing, it’s that time of year where everyone takes a seat and watches ‘the race that stops a nation’ – the Melbourne Cup. Frankly it’s probably more comfortable to watch the great race from your living room rather than brave the huge crowds at Flemington. And when you are seated and relaxed on a genuine Sulfaro Lounge Suite, win lose or draw, you will continue to remain in absolute comfort, enjoying real luxury in your own home.


[For those of you wondering we have included a few images from inside the new Members’ Stand at Flemington for your enjoyment.]

With strong Italian design and European styling, the Sulfaro range of luxury furniture offers a full complement of unique designs, the very best in both fabrics and leathers, and Sofas in the sizes and configurations to suit your every need.

At Sulfaro you have the option of choosing the colours, fabrics, patterns or leather selections you may prefer or desire.

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.

Choosing your Dining Setting – from Sulfaro – 10yr Guarantee incl.

It’s Springtime. This week we welcome Daylight Savings. Longer evenings, the chill off the air. It’s time to entertain, to create that ultimate dining experience – the Dinner Party. And the first prerequisite is a comfortable, attractive Dining Setting. A dining setting that comfortably seats your family and friends, that allows you the freedom of creating a visual delight – food, wine, crystal glasses, elegant porcelain. A comfortable setting that is part of creating those memorable, joyous moments.

At Sulfaro we offer a wide range of dining settings, both traditional and contemporary. Choose from our dining table and chair selections. Sharing a meal with loved ones is a wonderful experience – the warmth, the comfort, the flavours, the sheer enjoyment. And it all starts with your dining setting.


A few tips in selecting your dining setting – but first always remember – touch the surface – wood, glass, stone, ceramic – do you like it? Is it to your taste? Secondly take a seat at the table – are you comfortable? Do you like the fabric of the chair, its shape, its feel? Do you feel part of the table, moving comfortably?


A dining table is one of the most important purchases you will make for your home! It must be many things; yes, it’s a place for dinners, family lunches and lazy breakfasts, but it is also a place to do homework, jigsaw puzzles, newspaper sprawling and amongst all this, it is a vital centrepiece for your home and key anchor for your interior style.

If your table is well crafted and strong, it should outlive you by a long while and can even be a half decent investment piece, so it should never be something you purchase on a whim. We give you the need to know pointers to help you find the perfect piece to sit at the heart of your dining space.



The shape of your dining table will be greatly dictated by the room it is going to be placed in. Most spaces will suit a rectangular dining table as most dining spaces tend to be rectangular in shape and this combination provides soothing visual symmetry. You are also more likely to have greater choice when it comes to choosing styles because rectangular dining tables are the most popular on the market and are favoured for their classic and highly functional aesthetic. They are also a great choice if entertaining is your thing as they can easily have a chair or two added to them to accommodate that once a year celebration and its large guest list! Round or oval tables are often favourable because there is no “head” of the table and they offer a more informal and intimate approach to dining. These styles are also wonderful as they help provide a smooth flow of traffic through the space. Visually, round or oval tables tend to provide softer lines and come into their own in smaller rooms, especially those with a pedestal base as they take up less space and don’t break up the visual flow. Square tables should generally be reserved for use in large open spaces as they tend to take up vast amounts of space. If you do consider a smaller square option, keep in mind you will never be able to push all chairs in at once and therefore you will need to allow extra room for them to sit slightly out from the table.



The table’s size has to be based on the size of the room it is going to call home. You will need to consider and allow for the pushing back of chairs and room for people to circulate within the dining space. As a general rule of thumb, 90 cm from the wall or any other larger furniture items in the room is the minimum space to allow. Don’t forget the height of a dining table can vary, too. Most modern tables sit around 76 cm but many antiques or mid-century styles can vary from this measurement so make sure you consider this before you go choosing things such as on trend over the dining table pendant lighting and dining room chairs! In regard to choosing chairs you should always aim to leave about 20-30cm between the seat to the dining table and if you already have chairs you love…make sure to take their measurements with you when you head out shopping. If you are unsure of the size you need it is a fabulous idea to mock up a paper template to use in your room to ascertain what size will work best for your home, you can always take it on the table hunt with you too!



This is perhaps one of the most key points in choosing you’re dining table! A tables materials speak volumes as they act as an anchor in terms of the interior style of the home but also need to provide ample functionality. If you’re looking for something that will stand the test of time, then hardwood is the best option. Consider blackbutt, mahogany, walnut, oak and gum for both looks and durability. Salvaged or rustic wooden tables are also great as they provide character and can take most things you choose to throw at it with ever added aged worn chicness. Do make sure if you choose a timber table, salvaged or hardwood, that it is completely sealed, even on the base so as to avoid moisture sneaking in and bowing or cracking your tabletop. Glass topped tables are great options for smaller more modern spaces and those lacking in light because they allow light to filter through and visually they are not too overpowering or heavy. However, they do tend to scratch and are often hard work to keep clean. A more recent addition to the dining table market is concrete which is a fantastic option as it is beautiful, modern and super durable. It is also a material that transcends a myriad of interior styles. Surfaces such stone and marble are lovely and offer a great hard wearing surface but be cautious that they don’t appear cold and unwelcoming in your space and also pay close attention to the sealant used on these surfaces to avoid nasty stains.
