Shortlisted: Australian Interior Design Awards 2023

When Ivy was renovating her family’s Victorian cottage in Albert Park, she knew professional styling would bring her stunning new interiors to life. She invited us to help her with the finishing touches, creating a warm and welcoming home they were all excited to move into.

Our brief was to create the ‘wow’ factor – Ivy wanted a whole house full of photo-worthy spaces that were as beautiful as they were practical for sharing with their visiting children and two adorable dogs.

After generating an ideal furnishing layout, we then chose pieces from European and Australian furniture makers who worked with us to customise selected items to suit Ivy’s home. Soft furnishings, artwork, and décor were then added to create the tangible warmth and welcoming atmosphere that radiates through these photos – and even more so in real life!

Some tight spaces required us to get creative with our design to ensure flow and functionality. We had a gorgeous timber dining bench customised to double as extra living room seating for guests, and we had some fun in the kids’ rooms with mix-and-match linens and compact occasional furniture to create personalised retreats that weren’t overcrowded.

The finished product is a luxurious, comfortable retreat that merges history with timeless contemporary design.

“It was such a pleasure to work with their clever designer to specify all new furnishings from large pieces right down to art and styling items. I love that a lot of the pieces they recommended I wouldn’t have thought of or be able to source myself…they pulled together a cohesive look that still felt like ‘me’ but elevated!”

About the

Founded in 2021, Furnishd is a fast-growing interior design and furniture procurement-focused studio that helps clients discover, curate and invest in stunning products that elevate their space.

For everyday Australians, the idea of hiring an interior designer often remains less explored due to cost considerations, so the conventional furnishing process tends to get quite intricate. With a multitude of online retailers, showrooms, brands, colours, fabrics, and sizes, this complexity can be overwhelming and often results in costly mistakes.

We don't think that's how it should work, so we're changing it with Furnishd.

To make great design accessible to every home, we are democratising access to bespoke design services with STUDIO, and reinventing an empowering and personalised shopping experience with SHOWROOM. With 1:1 expert guidance and curated product selection, Furnishd ensures a truly elevated and personalised furnishing experience.

It's time to invest in your vision and embark on an exciting design adventure with Furnishd.

At ArchiPro we recognise and acknowledge the existing, original and ancient connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have to the lands and waterways across the Australian continent.
