There’s never been a greater focus on artisan design for the home as so many of us become more aware of the social and environmental effects of mass production. So why not keep it local and consider having your furniture custom-made to ensure longevity and a perfect match for your style and home?
Queensland boasts some incredibly skilled furniture artisans doing incredible things with custom-made furniture, and the best of them can be found working for the Brisbane warehouse of Buywood Furniture.
Led by 4th Generation furniture maker Lee Kenny, Buywood has been producing wholly handcrafted, custom timber furniture and storage solutions for more than 40 years. The team is passionate about maintaining the art of woodworking (and good old-fashioned customer service) while embracing modern design elements into each of their award-winning pieces.
The custom design of furniture, the quality of the product and the fact it is manufactured in Brisbane is what sets Buywood apart from the more mass produced offerings on the market. Their signature is quality custom timber furniture, made to your exact requirements at a competitive price. And it’s a true labour of love – Buywood help customers design their own furniture to suit their requirements, be it dining tables and chairs, beds, bedside tables, coffee tables, stunning custom timber kitchen benchtops and bathroom vanities, office furniture, wine racks, and bookcases. The company is also a reseller of Molmic lounges, another Australian brand closely aligned with their handcrafted ethos – a family-run business, Molmic have been designing and hand making lounges in Melbourne for over thirty years.
Buywood has a showroom at 78 Farrington Street, Alderley to showcase some of their design concepts and give their customers extra inspiration when working with their team on their own custom designs. Clients can come into the workshop to see their furniture during the manufacturing process, and to meet and watch the artisans at work. Buywood is also proud to maintain the art of woodworking by passing on their knowledge to their carefully selected and dedicated apprentices, ensuring the fine art of furniture making is carried on into the future generations.
Buywood delivers their furniture throughout Queensland, and have recently signed up with Zip Money, so they can now offer approved customers six months interest-free terms on furniture up to the value of $10,000.
