Marty Teare Furniture Design has been locally made, designed and owned for over thirty years
March 12th, 2013
Marty Teare is now in his fourth decade of furniture design and manufacture. At the helm of Marty Teare Furniture Design, he started his enterprise in a backyard shed in the Yarra Valley. Now, he has a factory and a modern showroom, and can list hospitals, hotels and universities as clients, but what hasn’t changed is a construction method that builds furniture to last decades, and a completely personal client service.
Their service sets them apart from other companies. For Marty Teare himself, this comes down to, “our unique way of talking to all our clients – answering the most basic questions, helping them achieve the most amazing use of a space by designing something unique and delivering on time on budget”.
It also helps that they know their product back to front. Everything from design and material sourcing to frame construction, sewing and upholstery is done locally in their Melbourne plant – and this, perhaps, is why everyone at Marty Teare Furniture Design can be confident they’re giving the best possible advice and quotations.
They specialise in high quality sofas, lounge chairs, ottomans, sectionals and breakout furniture and booth and banquette seating. They also create bespoke bedheads and upholstered wall panels, in their own designs or in their client’s, and with thirty years of business and manufacture behind them they have a full range of quality fabrics, vinyls and high class leathers which they source from around the world – and only sustainable timber.
For Marty Teare, good design is “a furniture range that has been well thought out, is solid in construction, looks amazing with lots of detail – uses amazing colours and textures in leather and fabric, but above all is comfortable, and built to last decades”.
Their designs are available to order online, or call into their showroom. They freight to all Australian states and most worldwide destinations. From a small backyard shed thirty years ago, Marty Teare Furniture Design now have their sights set on being one of the top five commercial furniture design and manufacturers in Australia and Asia Pacific. And obviously, they must be doing something right.
