Things of Metal and Wood

Bespoke, handmade furniture crafted on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.


Things of Metal and Wood are a family-run studio specialising in a beautiful range of handmade furniture, as well as bespoke, custom-designed and made artisan pieces.


Using locally sourced hardwood timber and materials including stainless steel and aluminium, Things of Metal and Wood produce unique furniture designs and statement pieces for Queensland homes.

Designer and craftsman Paolo Baretta has been crafting furniture for 23 years, and his wealth of skill and knowledge is a signature of every single piece in the Things of Metal and Wood collection.

As a Sunshine Coast business, the Baretta family work closely with their clients on projects both small-scale, such as furniture pieces or integrated statement fittings for the home (custom made design is their specialty), through to full-scale commercial retail fit-outs.

The team has a passion for locally made pieces, and their showroom is filled with a blend of unique homewares that will add a touch of style to any space. You can shop their pre-made furniture collection online as well, including entertainment units, outdoor furniture, dining and coffee tables.

All pieces are lovingly crafted in the Things of Metal and Wood workshop which adjoins their Maroochydore showroom. For custom orders, production time can vary depending on the materials selected, with a lead time generally of 3-6 weeks.
