Classic Furniture Gallery very first flagship store was located at 40 King Street (city end) in Newtown, and was there for 10 years before relocating to Camperdown and now at Leichhardt.
During our time in Newtown we also had stores located in: Castle Hill, Double Bay and Homebush Bay.
With a new mindset and approach, Classic Furniture Gallery (CFG) invites you to participate in our unique brand and products.
When buying our furniture you are considering the effect on our environment and the support for Javanese communities.
We work with people from several villages in various parts of central and eastern Java. The recycled teak timbers are from dilapidated houses, boats, old tree stumps and fallen trees only! This way you are guaranteed an ideal product that provides durability, a sense of history and real beauty and uniqueness.
“I wanted it to feel like you have to go hunting for the perfect piece.”
What will you find at Classic Furniture Gallery? When you roam our exclusive market-style store in Leichhardt, it won’t take long to find the perfect piece that simply takes your breath away. There is always something that will capture your heart – from decorated daybeds to magnificent dining tables and luxurious four-poster beds. Many of our pieces are antiques, unique wooden furniture that has been passed on for generations. Each has its own character that is rarely in newly made pieces.
“A moral question – where did this wood come from?”
Indonesia is a beautiful country abundant in teak. Teak is a hard timber that is used to build the decking on ships because it survives the best in the extreme weather conditions. As owner Normando Do Carmo says, “If it is good enough for ships, it is good enough for my furniture.” This also makes the pieces versatile, as it can be used indoors, making the perfect feature for any room, or outside to create and oriental themed garden.
We refuse to buy furniture from the big manufacturers because unfortunately, even though there are now plantations from which the wood can be farmed, many immoral suppliers still take the wood illegally from the rainforests. At Classic Furniture Gallery you can be sure that you are buying quality, 100% recycled wood that has had all of our devotion poured into it.
