Felix Furniture is a dynamic, yet small Melbourne furniture business, established in 2014 by Antonia Morrongiello and Ian Anderson; a couple who were inspired to follow their passion after years of making furniture for themselves.
Their new collection comprises a range of six new pieces of furniture. Plywood remains the signature, core material used within each of the pieces, with their Mota dining chair solely constructed in birch plywood. In addition, powder coated steel is featured in their new Lilly coffee table and Douglas bench seat. Cork – a new material the team was most excited about working with, features in the Kork range and includes an entertainment unit and buffet.
“Cork is an extremely undervalued material,” says Ian. “It comes in a range of incredible grains and colours and it is extremely sustainable. Cork is harvested directly from the tree once every nine years, allowing the tree to regenerate and continue living.”
The entire range is designed and made by the couple in their small workshop in Sunbury. “We really value the integrity of Australian designed and made products, so it is important to us to keep Felix local and source only from other small makers and suppliers in the community,” Antonia says.
