A multi-faceted approach to design and manufacturing allows the team at Mortice & Tenon in Victoria to deliver furniture and architectural joinery that is not only beautiful but also thoroughly practical.

Working with Australian designers for over 15 years has resulted in collections that span contemporary to traditional aesthetics, all with the attention to detail and finesse that sets their pieces apart.

At the minimalist end of the spectrum is Ljiljana Gazevic’s DeUnie range; a modish collection of lounges, tables and storage options that impeccably bring together the richest of leathers and timbers.

Stuart Rattle’s eponymous collection offers a more traditional aesthetic.  The pieces are equally inviting and luxurious with a more classical, softer approach to line and materials.

Beyond these and other existing ranges, Mortice & Tenon’s furniture division also works with trade and private clients to refine and manufacture bespoke furniture items. The experienced team managing the furniture division is made up of Paul Bianchini, Fred Genetay and Lionel Seibert all trained in France with the famous artisan guild “Les Compagnons du Devoir”.
