15 best Australian made sofas
From Scandi simplicity to comfy Hamptons there’s sure to be a sofa you’ll want in your shopping cart.
Australian made sofas (or sofa’s made in your country) are a far superior environmental choice compared to transporting a lower quality product from Asia made from dubious materials and labour which is likely to end up in Australian landfill after a relatively short period.
While Australian made sofas cost more due to higher wages and materials, the major advantages are supporting our local industry and also quality – if you choose well, your sofa is likely to last a lifetime.
How? By choosing a timeless design upholstered in a neutral fabric that will suit the different seasons of your life, from children and pets through to an empty nest.
Going neutral with design and colour means the ultimate in versatility, with a new look as easy as adding a colourful throw and some scatter cushions.
