Custom Timber Furniture in Melbourne

Flat-pack furniture might be a good solution in the short term, but custom made furniture is an investment you’ll enjoy for years to come. Get a custom made, unique furniture piece for your home, office or event designed by our co-director Michael – he’s trained in Furniture making with extensive experience making bespoke pieces for a variety of different spaces.

Our iconic ‘Kist aesthetic’ is lightweight and ideal for both house and apartment living. Each custom piece is easy to move, with no assembly required, and made from ply or solid timber with protective oil finishes. From storage to a new family heirloom to a custom display piece, we can design, build and deliver durable furniture to suit your taste and style.

How it works

Our design process is simple, but it begins with your idea. Gather as much intel as you can to complete our enquiry form and we’ll get in touch to set up a meeting.

Step 1. Plan your design

Once you’re solid on what kind of custom timber furniture you’d like us to create, we’ll meet and discuss your needs, aesthetic inspiration, sizing and finishes. And if you’d like a visual, we can even present it as a digital sketch for you before we get to work.

Step 2: We’ll build it

Once the initial design is selected, we’ll provide you with a quote to approve the final design and costs. Once accepted, we’ll send out an invoice and start the manufacturing process.

Step 3: It’s ready!

When your custom made furniture is ready, you can pick it up from our studio in Melbourne, or if you’re local, we can arrange delivery. Live interstate? No sweat – we can ship it to you at an additional cost.

Where is Kist Displays located?

Our studio is based in Melbourne, but we freight nationally, and have experience in one-off creations right through to bulk quantities.

How long will it take for my furniture to be made?

Custom made furniture does take a little longer than our standard display plinths. Depending on what we’re building for you, as each piece is unique, the production period will be defined by the individual project.

Why is custom furniture better than readymade furniture?

Custom furniture is designed to suit your specific needs and tastes, making it a better and much more personal option than the readymade furniture you might find in stores. Having the flexibility to choose the kind of timber, finish and dimensions you’d like gives you an end product you’re more likely to hold onto for years to come.
