Good design creates timeless style

A beautiful piece of hand-crafted furniture or lighting is a joy unto itself. 

Not only does it offer a striking feature for your interiors that owners and viewers can admire in equal measure. But it also builds upon an heirloom collection that offers enjoyment for future generations and makes sound investment sense.  

Good design creates timeless style

Furniture and lighting designers that shine  

Depending on your style and budget, if you’re in the market for a designer item to grace your home, we highlight a shortlist of Australian and New Zealand furniture and lighting makers to consider.

Wallpaper* recently showcased a selection of designers from Oceania in its annual Global Interiors 2021 collective. 

These include:

Ross Gardam

Melbourne furniture brand Ross Gardam has developed a global reputation as a furniture maker and lighting designer of note. The Breeze side tables are one example of the brand’s multilayered experience in design, sustainable manufacture and tapping into local artistic connections.


The Isabella chair by Auckland brand Resident is a hallmark piece in slender steel and padded base. Established by Simon James and Scott Bridgens in 2011, Resident continues to win fans and accolades for its furniture and lighting design brilliance. 

Daniel Emma

Colourful design geometrics define the work of South Australian design duo Daniel To and Emma Aiston. Their Mobile series, made from wood paint and wire, is a perfectly poetic and playful artwork for any interior space. 

Jam Factory

Adelaide not-for-profit creative hub Jam Factory is said to ‘champion the social, cultural and economic value of craft and design in daily life’. This ethos of the more than 50-year-old, state government-supported artisan collective culminates in the Solute lighting collection of sconces, pendants and floor lamps by Liam Fleming and Dean Toepfer.   

Douglas & Bec

New Zealand father/daughter design duo Douglas Snelling and Bec Dowie have become synonymous for their Arch Pendant light. This striking yet subtle feature piece is formed by a trio of suspended glass panels or brass finishes. Its concealed light source can be directional or diffused, depending on mood. 

View the websites of these designers for their full range of furniture and lighting. Good Design Australia, The Design Institute of Australia and The Designers Institute of New Zealand also offer award-winning designer product ranges.
