Wills Bisgrove Hand-built in Melbourne. Australian Made – Quality, Design and Comfort

The Wills Bisgrove difference – superb quality, impeccable design and the ultimate in comfort. It all comes down to absolute premium craftsmanship required and executed by our team of expert Artisans and Tradespeople in our modern workshop and studio located here in Camberwell, Melbourne. Buying Australian means dealing direct with the actual manufacturer, not a middle man or intermediary. The result – beautiful, bespoke furniture that simply exudes luxury – it’s from Wills Bisgrove. 

In the current economic circumstances, it’s a great idea to support our local manufacturing industries. The Wills Bisgrove Furniture Workshop and Studio is now back in production with orders up to and beyond Christmas for our valued clientele of Interior Designers, Decorators and Architects now well underway.

Selecting from our Wills Bisgrove Furniture Collection ensures that our team of tradespeople and artisans remain employed, that our suppliers continue in business, and the tradition of high quality, luxury furniture-making continues here in Melbourne. The Wills Bisgrove Furniture enterprise is unique in that it has now been operational and in business, creating handcrafted upholstered furniture, for over 80 years.

Over the last 100 years many of the traditional furniture makers in Australia have ceased production or moved offshore. Today, with cheaper imports flooding the market, only the best has survived. And without doubt Wills Bisgrove Furniture, now located in Camberwell is a prime example of that. Wills Bisgrove offer the very best in handcrafted traditional and contemporary furniture – Design, Comfort and Luxury. When you sink back into an Armchair or Dining Chair from Wills Bisgrove you just know it – Wills Bisgrove Furniture is simply the best.

And there are very good reasons for such assessments.

All Wills Bisgrove Furniture uses solid hardwood framing drawn from quality Australian timbers. F7 Victorian Ash is hand picked and kiln dried. The frames are dowelled, glued and cramp joined with sturdy corner blocks. With handsprung hourglass steel coils, sprung edge seats, jute webbing, hand laced and finished with a stitched edge, the seating created is supremely comfortable and is certainly built to last.

The Wills Bisgrove Collection offers a brilliant selection of both traditional and contemporary styles from which to choose. Experiment with fabric choice – leathers, woven materials, cottons, linen or wool. For a summer feel, look to fabric collections such as Warwick, Tigger Hall or Anna Spiro Design. Find inspiration, find guidance. Create your vision with vibrancy, colour and style.

The Wills Bisgrove Team are often called upon to craft beautiful, new bespoke pieces created by Designers and Decorators as well as Architects. Wills Bisgrove will work with the Designer to bring to life their unique vision, offering advice on how to ensure maximum comfort and beauty. Whether it’s fully modular furniture, ottomans, bench seating or traditional sofas and chairs, the Wills Bisgrove Team will ensure a perfect rendition of the Designer’s vision every time. Applying craftsmanship and traditional methods, quality finished pieces are produced that please and delight.

Modular furniture can be constructed to fit spaces exactly. With modern apartments this can be vitally important to achieving the look desired and utilising the space available effectively.

Wills Bisgrove for Restoration and Reupholstery of Heirloom and Antique Furniture

When you travel down High Street in Malvern or Armadale, or perhaps Maling Road, Canterbury, there is a wealth of gorgeous antique and period furniture for sale. Much of it has seen many years of use with the signs of wear and tear becoming increasingly obvious. Alternatively, you may have in your possession family heirlooms (lounge suites, occasional chairs) that have passed through generations and now you wish to restore them.

Classic or contemporary, not only will the Wills Bisgrove team of artisans select the authentic material for your piece they will also provide you  with new hand tied springs, wadding and framing, as is required.

Heirloom Antiques and well preserved upholstered furniture can provide a difficult dilemma. Do you repair, restore and reupholster? Or do you simply replace it with new furniture, fashioned traditionally by skilled craftsmen and artisans, using the tried and true methods and materials of the trade?

Often it comes down to the real condition of the piece being considered. Is it merely cosmetic – fabric, springs, webbing or cushioning? Or is it substantial – the frame, the actual integrity of the piece? For instance, if the frame is insect ridden (wood borers or termites) there is really no purpose in restoring it. In this case the Wills team can advise you of a suitable replacement piece.
