A lot of our work comes from repeat customers, this is closely followed by referrals from people who we have worked with or completed worked for. Vaia Pappas was referred to us by a very high profile and long standing customer. Everyone else she tried refused to take on the work. She was on a tight time line as her new store needed to be open and it needed to be ready to serve her clients. Vaia works to relax her clientele and in this moment she could have used a double shot dose of her own treatment. The project was just the type of thing our craftsmen enjoy. A detailed, slightly difficult and different designed furniture piece. And having been referred with highest praise we could hardly say no. Working with designer Stacey Kouros we got working on making sure we delivered on what we promised.
To see the final product be sure to visit Vaia at 32B Burton St, Darlinghurst Sydney NSW Australia 2010 and while you’re there treat yourself to one of her relaxing therapies.

For the May edition of the it’s design blog, we have decided to delve deeper into Chris Bosse’s Tivoli Terrace. The director of the architecture firm LAVA recently won the SMEG Tour Competition for this project, and we are so pleased that we could be a part of it!
The Paddington townhouse features a combination of classic joinery and modern manufacturing techniques allowing it to achieve a ‘21st century reinterpretation of a 1880’s terrace house’. Each room has floor to ceiling in-built cabinets which add generous amounts of hidden storage space to the property. With custom-made white laminated solid plywood kitchen and pale French oak timber floors, the use of only neutral colour tones creates a warm and serene environment.
‘Somehow when you are in here, it doesn’t feel small at all” – Chris Bosse
From handcrafted joinery solutions in the kitchen and laundry to wardrobes and bookshelf cabinets in the bedrooms and living rooms respectively, Bosse’s signature style of organic structures is present throughout his home. A combination of great architectural inspiration from Bosse with sustainable design has enabled a simplistic and modern way of creating space with the limited room of compact inner-city living.

We are so pleased to have not one but two of our projects featured in the Harper’s Bazaar Working Spaces Series.
Last year we showed you our work at MAXMEDIA LAB, this time its Sarah & Sebastian and their recently opened, first retail store.
The Working Spaces Series showcases Australian companies and individuals that are aesthetically pleasing, and add well-being and productivity in the office environment. We believe that our cabinet work at Sarah & Sebastian reflects these values of simple and ageless designs to create a pleasant and tranquil atmosphere allowing the collections to be shown in the best way possible.
If these photos aren’t convincing enough head over to Alexandria to check it out in person. Trust me, it won’t disappoint!
This series showcases Australian companies and individuals that are aesthetically pleasing, and add well-being and productivity in the office environment.
Our work with MAXMEDIA LAB emits this idea of a sleek modern workplace with simplistic and timeless designs that create a calm and soothing working environment. With more hours being spent in the office it is becoming increasingly important to have a positive work environment.
A BIG congratulations to our friend and collaborator Mark Smith of Smith Projects Pty Ltd for WINNING the Private School Construction Category at Master Builders Association of NSW Construction Awards Gala Dinner on Saturday night!
Working with you on the Kincoppal Rose Bay Project was an absolute pleasure! The end result looks exceptional!
This project is just one part of the refurbishment masterplan of Kincoppal which includes revamp on several of the heritage listed buildings. The area was upgraded to suit the current educational spaces and technology including pinboards, lockers, utilities storage, bench seats, tables and a kitchenette.
With the project being completed within 12 weeks, it was truly a well deserved win, If you don’t believe us, check out the photos for yourself!
So when our friends from Own World asked us last year to do the fit out for their Darlinghurst showroom we had nooooooo idea just how good the end result would look. And yes, as part of a great team, we proudly pat our own shoulders.
The timber wall panels, the over-size chair display and office cabinets, it all came together nicely once their good looking products featured in them. We think it’s become one fancy showroom! Have a look for yourself.
