OUR STORY

GOOD DESIGN . GOOD PEOPLE

Al and Imogen like good design and good people. It's as simple as that. 

The two made the move from Melbourne to Freshwater Creek on the Surf Coast in Victoria in September 2016 in search for a home with space to create. It's early days for the chippy and designer as they spend their days on the farm experimenting with recycled materials, turning old into new. Al and Imo are open to new projects and love nothing more than delivering a custom piece of furniture to its forever home.

SQUARE SUITE

Our friend Mikey just bought his first home yewww!!

To celebrate he wanted a bed, bedside tables and a side table - all fit for a big boys bedroom #adultlife. We loved working with Mikey designing matching pieces to our Square Bed. All made out of locally sourced recycled Vic Ash timber. You bloody rippa...congrats mate!

Wondering where that linen is from? @hellomrdraper

And the plants? @olivegreenplantandprop

   

 

SQUARE BED

A handcrafted Christmas present for Al's parents -Rick and Joan wanted a simple design made out of beautiful materials to compliment their Tasmanian Oak recycled floorboards. The queen- sized Square Bed is made from locally sourced recycled Vic Ash timber and features finger joins in the bed end and slim gaps in the bedhead. This simple and modest design blends beautifully into their architectural home.

PLYWOOD SHELVING

Simple plywood shelving to match in with the design of Rick and Joan's Williamstown house.   

 

BOOKSHELF BED

Our good mates Kyle and Jimmy came to us with a bunch of ideas for a really cool bed, after a lot of planning back and forth between us we finalised a design. The brief was to be eco friendly and have lots of space for book and shelves for plants.

The bed is made up of four "bookshelves" which create a large platform for the mattress to sink into. The bed is made up of a mixture of delicious recycled timbers locally sourced.

We had an absolute ball making this bed. Thanks Kyle and Jimmy for supporting out little dream of building furniture by the ocean.

PLY COFFEE TABLE

Designed by Al's older brother Nick, this plywood coffee table has come up a treat. Layers of ply have been sandwiched and finished with Ozmo oil/wax, the result it a smooth, textural piece worthy of sitting front and centre in the living room. Happy 30th Birthday Nick, this one's for you!
 

RECYCLED TIMBER DINING TABLE

Made from recycled messmate, this timber dining table was designed and built especially for our friend Anne Marie and her family ready for the move into their new home in Footscray. The brief for this table was to seat 8 and squeeze 10 (for those special occasions). Fit a high chair under it and be family friendly. We finished this off with natural Ozmo wax/oil to bring out the natural features of the timber. This table has been designed to get better with age and grow with their family. 
 

GUMMY BED

This was our first bed design, we created our own Gummy Bed which lead to our friend Britt wanting one too. Made with rustic recycled posts and vic ash beams, waking up in this baby feels like your home amongst the gum trees. 
Styled with handmade pillow slips by us.
