The Wills Collection offers a superb choice of simply beautiful handcrafted chairs admirably suited to purpose. Also on offer is a stunning selection of dining chairs to complement your selected dining table with a variety of fabrics, leathers and materials to suit all tastes and applications available.

A classic chair made by craftsmen using traditional techniques and upholstered for comfort and style is a wonderful choice.  It can become the focus within a room or accompany a sumptuous sofa. The chairs in the Classic Collection at Wills Furniture offer traditional design and real comfort. Constructed from eucalypt hardwood, F7 Victorian Ash which is hand-picked and kiln dried, the frames are dowelled, glued and cramp joined, with sturdy corner blocks. Hand sprung hourglass steel coils, sprung edge seats, jute webbing, hand laced and finished with a stitched edge creates seats that are supremely comfortable and certainly built to last.

The Adelaide Chair


This classic English design has a claw style arm and is available with a tight fitted back, coil sprung or a loose back cushion. It is elegant with polished legs with brass castors or choose a more ladylike option with a pleated skirt (fully lined) or even a combination of both, if desired.

The Alexandra Chair

Now in its 16th year, Decor and Design is a must visit for all Interior Designers and Decorators. https://www.decordesignshow.com.au/


The exhibition attracts over 11,500 design and retail buyers from across Australia searching for the latest in interior products and furnishings from over 350 exhibitors drawn from the forefront of design and innovation in Australia. It is in fact a TRADE ONLY event, however upon registration, admission is Free.


Again this year Vivid will profile some of our most exciting designers in what is now Australia’s longest running design competition and awards, now in its 15th year.

For aspiring designers and design studios, the Laneway and Wall St feature allows them to profile their work to the industry. It includes lighting design, homewares, furnishings, textiles and surface art.

Luciana Walls, Warwick Fabrics’ Design Manager will be speaking with Tigger Hall as part of the ‘Australian House and Garden’ International Seminar series on Friday the 19th of July.

The theme is the ‘Global Village’ and focuses on what it means to be part of this new phenomenon. Technology has changed the manner in which we communicate and now here in Australia we are both far more responsive and far more influenced by such global trends.
