If you are in the market for new futurniture then Harvey Norman has an extensive range of beautiful, Australian made options.

Jules Tennant, the furniture department proprietor at Harvey Norman Fountain Gate, says customers are often surprised at how much stock in the showroom is sourced from right here at home.

“We have a great range of Australian made furniture from lounge suites, dining settings, coffee tables, television cabinets and outdoor furniture,“ Mr Tennant explained.

“People love the fact that they can buy locally and support Australian jobs and manufacturers.

“They can see the quality of Australian made furniture and love that local manufacturers use Aussie timbers such as Victorian ash, blackbutt and wormy chestnut. Because of the grain of the wood, no two piece is the same.“

Harvey Norman sources furniture from all over Australia, including from companies based right here in Victoria.

Mr Tennant said Australian made furniture had two advantages over imported items – versatility and quality.

“Because we are in contact with the manufacturers, Australian made furniture can be ordered in different sizes and colours for example,“ he explained.

“Fabrics are of excellent quality and are sourced from well known brands such as Warwick Fabrics, Profile and Zepel.

“With lounges customers can even choose which foam they want depending on their preference.“

He said Australian made furniture was very competitive on price.

“But even if customers do pay a little more it is worth the investment,“ Mr Tennant said.

The founder and chairman of Harvey Norman, Gerry Harvey, is equally enthusiastic about Australian made furniture.

“Our exciting range of Australia made furniture and bedding is about more than just quality products at affordable prices – it’s about encouraging growth in the Australian furniture and bedding industry,“ Mr Harvey said.

“Harvey Norman supports and promotes Australian made products, with the aim of creating more opportunities for all Australians. I proudly support the manufacturers’ whose innovative furniture and bedding designs are carried by the Harvey Norman stores.“
