Redgum by Design prides itself on the manufacturer and retail quality rustic style timber home furnishings. We build everything from dining room tables, buffet and entertainment units, bedroom furnishings, desks and bookcases, to custom furniture orders all from treecycled timber we have collected and milled ourselves.
We craft our furnishings primarily from Australian Native Timbers, but also work with many other exotic species. We endeavour to create individual unique pieces of furniture at an affordable price. We are always trying to keep our prices down & our quality standards high. Our unique, one of a kind, hand-crafted, rustic furniture is made from treecycled timber found throughout the Dandenong Ranges and urban areas around Melbourne. All our timber is sourced from trees recovered from storm damage or permit required tree removal. In each piece of furniture we try to maximise the use natural shapes and textures and individual characteristics such as bends, twists and burls found naturally in the timber. We do not cut out natural character marks in the timber. Each board or slab has its own beauty marks.
Solid timber grows and shrinks with humidity changes. It takes special knowledge and construction techniques to allow for this movement. For this reason, we finish our furniture not only on the outside but throughout the interior as well.
A piece of handcrafted furniture is at once a practical and aesthetic purchase. It graces your home, reflects who you are, and performs a specific function in your home. A piece of fine furniture is a part of your family's material legacy and, as such, should live beautifully today, tomorrow, and for succeeding generations.
First and foremost, remember that a piece of handcrafted furniture has a life of its own—it imparts a special feeling, character, and personality through its design and appearance. It is only after your heart has been captured by the design and lines of a piece, that you will ask questions that will confirm your selection and enhance your satisfaction.
