“A trusted and respected name for designing and crafting quality timber furniture in Adelaide since 1952″

Architects are not furniture designers…

Architects are not furniture designers…

This subject pops up from time to time down here at the factory. Architects, interior designers and kitchen box makers that believe they have the ability and knowledge to design solid timber furniture without ever personally making a thing. Like a self appointed backyard cook that’s never actually made a single pie themselves but will gladly go ahead and tell a professional baker of 30 years how to make said pie. Weird times indeed.

Collectively here at Mabarrack furniture we have over 120 years of combined experience working with all types of timber. Every Mabarrack team member is a fully qualified furniture maker and Matt also has a furniture design diploma from 2001/02. Through constant R&D we know timber and how it performs, we know design limits and stability and we know trends.

Architects are not qualified to design furniture, they must stick to what they were trained for. Don’t let an architect or interior decorator design your furniture, politely tell them ‘thanks but I’ll go see a professional’ then pop on down to our factory showroom and we’ll take it from there… -Matt
