Support Australian Furniture Makers & Stores in Sydney

What to expect when you support Australian timber furniture makers

It’s no secret a lot of small businesses have struggled during the covid pandemic. Your local furniture stores and makers in Sydney are affected by this. However, as we start to venture out the other side, the phrase ‘support local’ holds more meaning than ever. 

We’re lucky to live in a country filled with diverse and talented artisans. When it comes to custom timber furniture, in particular, Australia has some of the finest hardwoods and craftspeople in the world, especially in Sydney. 

When you buy from local traditional furniture stores and makers in Sydney what you’re doing is investing in a certain quality that mass-produced imports simply cannot achieve. At Naturally Timber we have a saying, ‘We build up to a standard, not down to a price.’

We don’t compromise on quality – ever. That’s something our loyal customers know all too well, and in most cases, that’s what you can count on when you support a small business.

And when it comes to Australia’s finest hand-crafted furniture makers, you can expect that and so much more.


Exquisite, masterfully designed timber furniture cannot be made by a machine in a production line. It does take the human touch to ensure each piece of hardwood is treated with care to make it shine. That’s something you can expect from local businesses, like furniture stores and makers in Sydney.

Our workshop and studio in Sydney employ an incredible team of interior specialists, visual merchandisers, product designers, expert craftsmen, cabinet makers, woodworking artisans and specialist furniture delivery people. Some of our team have been here since the very beginning – and that’s a REALLY long time. You can read the full Naturally Timber story here.

We also work with and support other small Australian businesses all over the country, who just like us, take an immense amount of pride in their work. You really can’t say the same for mass-produced products.

Traditional furniture making truly is an art form. Our founder, Adnan Harb, astoundingly started his career as a cabinet maker at age nine in his hometown of Lebanon. The detailed skills he learned throughout his youth carried him to Sydney where Naturally Timber was born.

These traditional techniques have since been passed down to our up-and-coming craftsmen, ensuring every piece we produce is approached in the same way, with the same level of knowledge behind it. Many furniture stores in Sydney are built from years of experience and tradition.

Of course, the beauty of hand-sanding, hand-fitting of joints, hand assembly and hand-finishing is that we then have full control over the outcome, so you can be confident that the quality of your custom order is at an all-time high when it leaves our workshop and makes its way into your home.

Like so many other small Aussie businesses, our focus is on creating something beautiful that will be cherished for generations to come. Australians have very high standards when it comes to locally manufactured products, which is why we only use the finest materials in our builds, found right here in our backyard. 

We source the best pieces of timber we can find; from Tasmanian Blackwood, Western Australian jarrah, River Red Gum, Blackbutt, Sydney Blue Gum, to Western Australian Marri – every piece is chosen for being incredibly strong and highly resilient to craft with. Naturally Timber, and custom furniture stores in Sydney, ensure that you get the product tailored to your needs using high-quality solid timber. Rest assured your custom furniture won’t succumb to the same wear and tear that so many mass-produced products do.

Buying Australian-made products also ensures that we’re supporting the local economy. Living through a global pandemic means it’s more important than ever that we help to rebuild the communities and makers who were hit hardest by lockdowns instead of purchasing from overseas suppliers.
