If you care deeply about our planet and its people (and we all should), then Koskela’s vision will probably appeal to you. The team at Koskela believe in treading as lightly as possible when it comes to our planet, and this is reflected in the way they work, the materials they source, what they sell and how they treat people.

All of Koskela’s furniture is produced in Australia so that they know how the product is made and are able to have a closer relationship with the people involved in making it.

They also believe in social enterprise, with a portion of all sales going towards the indigenous communities that they work with to produce unique contemporary design products. If you’re arty, want furniture that is truly interesting, and love the likes of Marimekko, Gorman, Scandinavian and Japanese design, then we think you’ll adore Koskela and everything it has to offer.

13. MCM House – a Sydney design institution

Sydney-based MCM House needs to be on this list. You know that obsession we all have with soft, deep, linen lounges? You can pretty much credit MCM House for popularising that look. Charles Hinckfuss heads-up the brand – he originally wanted to be a painter but ended up sourcing and selling antique furniture. Years of doing this developed his eye for design. This allowed him to create a brand where every piece is designed to be able to sit alongside furniture and decor from any style or period. Cool, right?

The brand is focused on timeless, classic and contemporary furniture, and while it might cost you a bit of coin, it’s the kind of design that stands the test of time from both an aesthetic and quality perspective. According to Charles, the brand is aspirational, yet attainable, and we love that.
