Bespoke Creation or Restored Masterpiece – Always Trust Wills Furniture – We Deliver.


Interior Designers and Decorators pride themselves on presenting bespoke design. With furniture to achieve the beautiful results required to provide a stunning interior decor, it often comes down to having the right team of artisans, upholsterers and framers to create or customise the sofas, armchairs, ottomans, dining settings and bedheads presented to clients. The right team is Wills Furniture – still handcrafting and upholstering original furniture traditionally after 80 years.

Clients luxuriate in the look and feel of Wills Furniture. Whether selected from our carefully maintained Wills Collection or a one off bespoke design, Designers can be confident of superb quality, handcrafted furniture presented with an immaculate finish. Furniture as it’s meant to be – no cookie cutter or production line mass production, just pure finesse, skill and ultimately genuine comfort, pure luxury.

The Wills Collection offers a wide array of choices, both classic and contemporary. It’s not unusual when preparing a refreshed or renewed interior design that the designer requires flexibility in modifying a current item of furniture from our Wills Catalogue to suit the space it is intended for, be it size, height or features such as arms, piping, legs or castors. With the Wills team Designers can select variations in height, depth, cushion fill and overall comfort and feel.

Modular furniture can be produced to accurately fit spaces as specified.


In some cases clients may possess valuable heirloom antique furniture or period upholstered furniture in need of restoration. The Designer may wish to refresh these items and use and incorporate them in a new design.


At Wills Furniture, our highly trained craftsmen and artisans know and understand the requirements, materials and methodologies to be utilised in ensuring a genuine and authentic restoration of heirloom and period upholstered furniture.


This is a full restoration, not just a recovering. Our specialist craftsmen and women – upholsterers, machinists and seamstresses fully restore and repair your entire piece. Strappings, timberwork, hand springs, buttoning and studding are all undertaken and presented in as close to original format as possible. Wills Furniture takes pride in such faithful restorations to heirloom and period pieces and in recreating the luxury and comfort of the past.


The Wills team upholster and restore lounge suits, sofas, armchairs, occasional chairs, bedroom chairs, dining chairs, barstools and tub chairs, bedheads and ottomans of all types. We can also advise you on whether restoration vs a new piece is feasible for later period pieces. In many cases, Furniture restored by Wills will leave our workshop in much better shape than that of its original manufacture. Furniture restored and refurbished by Wills becomes a featured piece of furniture that can lift a whole design.

Our Workshop and artisans working in our Hawthorn factory enjoy a connection with the craftsmanship and artisanship of earlier times through the direction of Paul Newham, the son of the original upholsterers from the Newham family who had owned and operated Wills Furniture for over 80 years. Paul has ensured that the original rigid quality standards applied in the past are still adhered to today, ensuring the same quality and standard of excellence is still achieved on every piece of Wills Furniture today across the entire Wills Collection.


At Wills we offer a fully professional service providing free no obligation quotes, pickup and delivery, completing your furniture on time to an agreed schedule. As well as antique and period restoration, Wills offer standard reupholstery, re-polishing, advice and service. All restorative works and reupholstery are carried out at our factory and workshop located behind our showroom at 6 Guest St, Hawthorn. Visitors are welcome to visit our showroom, by appointment. Please call on 03 9815 0111 or use our contact form here on our contact page. Please don’t hesitate to call and enquire about your specialised custom upholstery recovery projects.


So remember whether it’s a new Bespoke creation or a beautifully restored Heirloom antique, trust Wills Furniture to faithfully create a truly unique and iconic piece of furniture or restore such unique heirloom classics to their original glory. You can trust the Wills Furniture team to deliver the perfect results every time.

Apartment Living – Superb Comfort and space with Wills Furniture.

As Melbourne matures into a major international city, the shift to luxury style apartment living becomes more and more apparent. With many ‘empty-nesters’ trading their traditional homes on quarter acre block for apartment living, there is a greater appreciation of interior space and interactive indoor/outdoor design. Balconies and large panoramic glass windows provide those living in multi-storey apartment complexes with a genuine experience of space, complemented with expansive views to the horizon.


Interior Design now plays an even more important role in such modern living. Modern apartments are spacious, open and interactive. It is the designer’s role to ensure this glorious feeling of space, this uncluttered vista remains sacrosanct. And it is for this reason that furniture selection is so vitally important.

Apartments vary, from ultra-modern to older apartments from the 1930s and ‘40s in Art Deco style. With the Wills Collection there is a selection for every application. From contemporary modular units through to more ornate traditional and classic designs featuring scrolled arms and curved backs.

Here are some selections to consider…

The Avalon


A contemporary design with a sleek look, the Avalon sofa has a balanced combination with the symmetry of straight lines and curved detail adding to the minimalist design. A long, singular cushion complementing the back cushions in a flowing straight line finish, together with the slightly splayed padded arms and side bolster cushions make this the perfect sofa to recline and relax on. Polished timber plinth and feet set off the clean, elegant design features.

The Cayman


The Cayman is a long, sleek designed sofa with low profile fitted back, lumbar support cushions, classic square club arms. The cushions are luxuriant with a very full and thick, high grade memory foam to ensure maximum comfort. The sleek, high profile plinth and leg assembly, together with the low profile back, gives a nod to classic 1970’s design. The plinth and legs can be polished or painted in any finish to highlight the slimline, smooth appearance of this sofa.


The Barrington


The Barrington is comfortable, modern contemporary sofa. It speaks of quality, featuring higher club arms and a fully upholstered coil-sprung back for solid, comfortable support. The hardwood frame with coil springs ensures a solid yet attractive unit. A three seater measuring 2300mm in width as well as a two seater measuring 2000mm are both available and quite suitable for commercial purposes. Matching armchairs and ottomans are also available.

The Houston


The Houston is an elegant sofa. It features a coil sprung fitted back with split piped division and large feather wrapped cushions. The cushion materials can be adjusted to suit the expected usage. A large, solid, sleek profile with polished feet in detail and patina polished finish. The sofa is available as a three seater, two and a half or two seater as well as in an armchair.

Please feel free to visit our Showroom in Hawthorn to inspect these or any other sofas in our Wills collection. As visits are by appointment, please call first to arrange an inspection on 03 9815 0111 or leave your details here for a prompt reply.

The sofa is finished with chunky timber legs or piano sized casters – or a tailored skirt.


The Florence Sofa is another exquisite standard, a classical Victorian style sofa. It features a diamond buttoned upholstered back, large scrolled padded arms, polished legs and castors. It may well be a ‘standard’ but there is nothing ‘standard’ about this gorgeous sofa – it is an elegant piece of furniture that simply oozes class. It will complete any selected living space. And if you prefer it can be provided with a full fluted skirt. With luxurious feather down cushions it is sublimely comfortable, overall it is a memorable and stunningly beautiful decorative piece.

From the same period we have the classic winged chair. Two that are ever popular are the Columbia Chair and the Kooyong Chair.


The Columbia, a classic winged chair with scrolled arms splayed out, piping facing detail and a pleated rolled edge, features a high wing back with fully sprung lumbar support. Polished Tasmanian Oak legs and stretcher rails create an elegant finish. Sumptuously comfortable with feather combination cushioning and a matching foot stool as an option, this is truly a chair to sink into and relax.
