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.
All estimates are free and flexible according to materials and scheduling. We'd love to hear from you.
We were contacted by Kate and Jake from Geelong who were looking for Scandinavian inspired design that was handmade locally. We emailed back and forth pictures and ideas and came up with this design together.
The "Scandi Bed" is handmade from locally sourced American Oak. The timber bed frame features tapered legs and a headboard with gap detail. Danish inspired, this minimalist bed is a timeless design highlighting the natural beauty of the timber.
Congratulations Kate & Jake on the wedding, we hope you love this bed as much as we enjoyed designing and making it!
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
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.
We loved creating this Square Bed with custom solid headboard for Alice. This was our first interstate order and travelled from our farm to Adelaide.
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.
TOO EASY MATE
Watch how easy it is to put together our timber bookshelf bed.
BOOKSHELF BED ROUND 2
After such a ripper design from Kyle and Jimmy, we were bound to have another "Bookshelf Bed" order in no time! This time legend Eric wanted one for his new bachelor pad! Having a smaller room meant he didn't have space for much more than a bed. So we suggested this beauty - which features shelving in the bedhead and all around the base - eliminating the need for side tables or bookshelves.
Handmade from a mixture of locally sourced recycled timbers.
There's nothing more satisfying than delivering a bed and seeing them jump right in it! Good on ya Eric and thanks for supporting our dream of building forever furniture by the sea!

ROUND DINING TABLE
We loved creating this custom round dining table for Andy and Steph and their growing family. Made out of beautiful locally sources Tasmanian Oak, this beauty is 1600mm in diameter and will seat 8 comfortably. We can only begin to imagine the memories that will be made around this family table. Now it's time to make one for ourselves!

Made from the off cuts of locally sourced recycled timber, we created this coffee table for our friend Britt's 30th birthday present.

RECYCLED RAILWAY SLEEPER DINING TABLE
Made from locally sourced recycled timber and featuring recycled railway sleepers for legs, we bloody loved making this dramatic dining table for Mihaela's new home in Altona.
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.
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.
