Wills Furniture – An Australian Icon


With the Australian economy now in lockdown it’s worth considering the value of local industry and manufacturing. The Wills Furniture Company has been established and operating for well over 80 years. It is entirely an Australian operation locally based in Hawthorn, Melbourne. It employs skilled artisans – upholsterers, framers, seamstresses. It trains apprentices in these skills for the future.


The COVID-19 virus puts restrictions on our lives. Wills Furniture recognise the current Government Health Department regulations and ensure that social distancing and hygiene are maintained to the standards required. Our showroom remains open but by prearranged appointment only. Hand sanitiser and wipes are provided.

For many this is a time for contemplation. Spending time at home may spark your desire to refresh and renew your current lounge suite, sofa and accessories.


Take the time to browse our Wills Collection and its superb selection of both Classic and Contemporary Furniture – sofas, armchairs, occasional chairs, ottomans, dining chairs and more. In selecting the Wills Collection, you are supporting local industry here in Australia and saving jobs.

This week we review the Wills Collection’s selection of Classic Design Sofas and Armchairs. For heritage and period architecture the Wills Classic Collection provides the authenticity and timeless beauty that completes the interior fit out, look and feel of such a home.


The Wills Collection represents a refined selection of stylish designs that offer genuine luxury and supreme comfort. From the classic Clivedon and Adelaide Sofas through to the more informal St Pierre, the Amelia and the Sheffield – Wills offers an exquisite range of individual styles, fabrics and finishing from which to choose.

All Wills Furniture is handcrafted using the finest of fabric, leathers and solid framing with sumptuous cushioning. Minor modifications to suit floor plans and necessary alterations are possible – simply notify us prior to your final order.

Wills Furniture maintains a strong connection with the craftsmanship and artisanship of the trade in earlier times through the stewardship and direction of Paul Newham, the son of the original upholsterers from the Newham family – the creators of the Wills Furniture range. The same rigid quality standards of the original factory are maintained today.


You can arrange a visit to the Wills Factory and Showrooms at 6 Guest St, Hawthorn by calling 03 9815 0111 or by leaving your details here.

At Wills Furniture, we offer excellence in Design, Luxury and Comfort. And to all our clients, friends and suppliers, take care and stay well.

Wills Furniture – it’s simply the best.
