Sulfaro Furniture – Stay well, stay safe, stay secure – It’s take two for Covid-19


With stage 3 Coronavirus restrictions being re-imposed as of July 9th 2020 for 6 weeks, it’s really time again to get comfortable at home and sit this one out. These are challenging times and more than ever we need the comforts of home to support us through this next six weeks. The Sulfaro team will continue to manufacture during this new lockdown period and our expansive showrooms shall remain open as well, given strict social distancing and hygiene standards and requirements are enforced and observed. Your safety, security and wellbeing as always is our number one concern.

When you visit our showrooms you can be confident that all furniture and surfaces are hygienically cleaned daily to standards that actually exceed the current Health Department requirements.

We recognise that for all of us, comfort is paramount. It may well be that you have determined the need for a new lounge suite or dining setting to cope with the situation of having the family home 24/7 possibly for the next 6 weeks. It’s certainly a time when our sofas, armchairs, dining settings and accessories get quite the work out!

At Sulfaro, all upholstered furniture is designed and manufactured in our modern studio and workshop situated behind our showrooms in Mitcham.


Yes, that’s right, all Sulfaro furniture is made right here in Melbourne. With high quality materials in storage and in good supply, the Sulfaro team will continue to craft and build furniture of the highest standard – truly ‘Australian made’ – throughout the lockdown period.

Sulfaro is not effected by import embargoes or supply issues from overseas sources. We simply do not require imported materials – our furniture is genuinely 100% Australian made.

We’ve said this before and we will continue to say it. In the following months and years (post Coronavirus), it will become critically important to support local manufacturers to maintain Australian employment and local industry.

At Sulfaro we employ local craftsmen and women; Tradespeople such as frame builders, upholsterers and seamstresses. We engage young people in apprenticeships and work experience programs. With the Australian Dollar very likely to fall further over the coming months, this vision and action will become a valuable asset, ensuring the Australian consumer market has continued access to high quality. locally designed product, particularly with furniture.

Local Manufacturing effectively provides ongoing local employment, fosters genuine local craftsmanship and ultimately reduces Australia’s international carbon footprint. This is truly a sustainable proposition and again we express our gratitude for the ongoing support from all of our customers and clients during these difficult times.

For interstate buyers, please visit our website and browse our fabulous Sulfaro Collection. You can select from a superb range of both traditional classic designs and styles as well as the very best in contemporary, modern styles and designs.

For Melbourne and Victorian based clients and customers, our Showrooms are located over two huge stores at 650-652 Whitehorse Rd Mitcham (corner of Cochrane St) approximately 1km from the EastLink Ringwood off-ramps.


Sulfaro is adhering to all Government health recommendations in regard to Covid-19 and will be closely monitoring the advice and guidance of both the Australian Government as well as all local and international health authorities and their recommendations. We will be guided by these recommendations in our actions moving forward over the next few months in particular.

The reality is that our home, its environs, living areas and facilities becomes even more important to our family and our wellbeing in these difficult times. With the imposition of self-isolation and social distancing our home becomes the sanctuary where we seek comfort, security and a sense of protection.

Again, it’s consideration, kindness and generosity that matter. It’s time to look out for one another. Stay safe, stay well.

Luxury and Design – Handcrafted Quality Furniture from Sulfaro – Made in Australia exclusively

It’s time to replace your ageing Lounge Suite. With plenty of options to choose from, the only selection really worth considering is of course Sulfaro. The Sulfaro Collection is an immaculate selection of hand built, handcrafted upholstered furniture made right here in Melbourne.

The Sulfaro team are genuine artisans – classically trained tradespeople specialising in Furniture Making – Framing, Upholstery, Fabric and Leather work – true craftsmen and women creating and completing fine furniture by hand – master craftsmen.

Most furniture offered for sale in Australia is manufactured in China or other third world nations such as India, Indonesia, the Phillipines or Malaysia. Generally this involves a robotic process with pre-purchased, pre-made framing, standard fabrics and inferior cushioning, springs and other components. These are mass-produced budget items that unfortunately here in Australia are often priced as quality furniture. Quite frankly it’s anything but. Your choice of colours and fabrics is entirely limited and your suite or sofa is often sold without any realistic guarantee.

So why else should you select Sulfaro? The Sulfaro Collection covers a very broad range of designs, styling and influences.

The ‘Sulfaro Experience’ is entirely unique. Firstly ALL furniture in the Sulfaro Collection is individually hand built. Qualified tradesmen and artisans create each piece from the framing to the final finishing entirely by hand. Our modern Studio and Workshop is extremely well set up with the latest in tooling and equipment. All Staff are traditionally trained in frame making, upholstery and furniture making, and are fully professional and industry experienced.

The Lounge suite you purchase from Sulfaro is individually crafted from beginning to end with passion and skill, in much the same way upholstered furniture has been fashioned for centuries.

You, the customer get to choose the fabrics or leather for your selected Sofa, Armchair or dining chairs. Sulfaro offer a wonderful catalogue and a vast collection of fabrics, materials and leathers from the world’s leading suppliers and Fabric Houses.

Select the colour, the fabric mix, the cushioning, piping, skirting and casters. Custom design your lounge suite to suit your interior design and lifestyle. In the end with Sulfaro’s assistance, it is truly ‘your’ lounge suite. A masterpiece.

What would you prefer? A truly individual custom designed unit that reflects your taste and preferences, or an ‘off the shelf’ (one of many) manufactured second rate cookie cutter knock off copy. Same price but definitely not the same quality.

Sulfaro Furniture offers both traditional and contemporary styles and designs, as can be seen here and also on our website. With nearly 60 years experience in the creation of fine furniture, our clients enjoy true European Craftsmanship and Italian Styling, with furniture built to last a lifetime. In fact, we guarantee our furniture and workmanship to last a lifetime.

Beautifully crafted hand-built furniture. The very best in timbers, cushioning and fabrics. The result? Pure comfort and absolute luxury. Guaranteed! Why settle for less? Design, Quality, Comfort – real luxury – or a cheap copy that will be spent in 5 years maximum.

But don’t just take our word for it, take the time to schedule a visit. Call 03 9872 4608 now and book a time with our Design team and Retail Manager Amelia Sulfaro. Feel confident to bring fabric samples, colour selections, photographs, floor plans and interior design plans. Design your dream lounge suite, dining setting and select your preferred accessories. Ottomans, Credenzas, Side Tables, Coffee Tables and beautiful sculptures – you deserve it.
