Hand Built in Melbourne – Wills Furniture – Buy Australian Made

In the current economic circumstances, it’s a great idea to support our local manufacturing industries. The Wills 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 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 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 Furniture, now located in Hawthorn is a prime example of that. Wills 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 you just know it – Wills Furniture is simply the best.

And there are very good reasons for such assessments.

All Wills 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 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 Team are often called upon to craft beautiful new Bespoke pieces created by Designers and Decorators as well as Architects. Wills 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 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.

Design, Luxury Comfort – You know it’s from Wills.

Bespoke Design from Wills Furniture

Interior Designers, Decorators and Architects often create unique bespoke furniture for their projects. It may be that the building itself deigns such a need or it can be simply taking advantage of a wonderful space with some unique furniture pieces It is imperative that the furniture produced is of a consistently high standard – quality, design, finish and craftsmanship. For this reason it is Wills Furniture that is most often the popular choice with Designers and Decorators for handcrafted, hand built exquisite bespoke furniture.

Wills Furniture has a wealth of experience in working with a wide range of interior designers and decorators. The Wills team can bring to life the visions and creations of such bespoke furniture with real professionalism, craftsmanship and finesse.

It’s often that a space or living area requires a unique approach.

From Modular Furniture, Ottomans, Bench Seating, Traditional Sofas and Armchairs to Bedheads, the Wills team will add life to any design and breath vitality into what then becomes a living design.

With large splayed out scrolled arms featuring inset piping detail, the overall finish is classic, simply stunning. 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.

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.

It is available with polished Tasmanian Hardwood Oak legs and stretcher rails or the option of full length, pleated, tailored skirts.

Wills Furniture – Design, Luxury, Comfort – It’s simply the best.

Apartment Living with the Wills Contemporary Sofa Collection – Luxury, Comfort and Design.

With the current restrictions in place, one area demonstrating a dramatic slowdown is the sale of inner-city apartments. Where some see an issue, others may well see an opportunity. For those downsizing, there will likely be some superb bargains on the horizon in the not too distant future.

Apartment living is vastly different to living on a suburban allotment. The design of apartments generally lends itself to space, light and panoramic views. The style of furniture for this type of living is noticeably different to the more traditional classic furniture you may select whilst living in an older suburban home – a Californian Bungalow or a Federation style dwelling, for instance.

Modern Apartments can be as much as 60 squares now as a standard size. To take full advantage of such a living space, the interior design must acknowledge the full area available and the desired access to panoramic views.

The Wills Collection offers an exciting and visually stunning range of contemporary furniture. It’s easy to create a unique, comfortable lounge suite, either a traditional layout with sofas and armchairs or fully modular in a more contemporary modern style.

All Wills Furniture is manufactured here in Melbourne at our Hawthorn Factory; Crafted and hand built using time honoured and traditional processes, your comfort is assured as is the absolutely premium quality of each item produced.

High grade, kiln-dried hardwood is used for framing; seating is all hand tied with coil springs giving genuine luxury and support.

Here we feature three of our more popular Sofas often selected for Apartment living.

The Avalon

A contemporary design with a sleek look, this 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

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 slim-line, smooth appearance of this sofa.

The Houston

The scooped club arm is perfectly shaped giving this sofa an elegant look. The coiled sprung and padded fitted back with split piped division assures supreme comfort together with fully sprung seating and luxurious large, feather wrapped cushions. The elegant lines of the overall design are highlighted by the large, solid, sleek profile polished feet with bevelled detail and patina polished finish. Available in three seater, two seater and two and a half seater, as well as an armchair.

Wills Furniture – It’s simply the best.

Wills Furniture – where you select the fabrics and leathers, the colours and finishing.


At Wills Furniture all clients have the ability and the freedom to select their fabrics, leathers, colours and accessories with their new upholstered furniture. When choosing premium handcrafted, hand built furniture, you and your designer can select from the fabrics and leathers available through Wills from Australia’s and the world’s leading suppliers.


So let’s discuss fabrics. Interior Designers consider a number of factors when determining the right fabric to suit your selection from our exclusive Wills Collection.

For a designer its often somewhat imperious to select a wafting silk or a pure white linen. However good designers realise their clients must live with the fabric selected and it may be the fabric is determined by the potential use of the furniture, its location and the degree of traffic a room may experience. Often choosing an easy to maintain fabric and be a better long term choice.

Here is a list of fabrics, both Natural and Synthetic reprinted from the Houzz.com.au website. It is a useful guide and at Wills Furniture we consider it reasonably accurate and useful.

  • Cotton is durable and resistant to wear and fading, but not as resistant to dirt and wrinkling. Cotton can go from casual to formal depending on the weave.
  • Cotton blends are slightly more durable than cotton due to the mix of additional fibres.
  • Leather is durable and functional. It wears well and gets better with age.
  • Linen is resistant to pilling and fading. It provides a crisp and casual look to furniture. However, it wrinkles and shows dirt easily.
  • Silk is elegant and adds a sophisticated and formal touch to furniture. Due to its delicacy, it’s best for light use and requires professional cleaning.
  • Wool blends with synthetic fibre for easier maintenance. It’s durable while also being resistant to pilling, fading, wrinkling and soil.
  • Acetate is developed as imitation silk, and is resistant to pilling and shrinking; however, it doesn’t hold up well for everyday use due to its tendency to wear, wrinkle and fade in the sun.
  • Acrylic is developed as imitation wool and may pill easily if not of high quality. However, it’s softer than natural wool, and is resistant to wear, wrinkling, dirt and fading.
  • Microfibre fabric is made from polyester fibres, is similar to suede, and easy to maintain.
  • Nylon is often blended with other fibres, creating a durable fabric that won’t wrinkle or soil but may fade and pill.
  • Polyester is usually found in a blend with other fibres, and is resistant to wrinkling and fading.
  • Rayon, though prone to wrinkling, is durable and affordable.
  • Vinyl is durable and a more affordable option compared to leather.

Functionality and Reality

A clever designer will select fabric that not only looks superb but also wears well, is easy to maintain yet synchronises well with the style of the furniture and the decor and feel of the room you have selected.

Houzz advises:

Neutral tones and floral prints work well in a traditional space, while bright colours and bold patterns give off a more contemporary vibe. Your lifestyle also dictates your design. Here are four quick questions to ask while browsing upholstery fabric online:

• How long is this upholstery meant to last?
• How often will you clean and iron it?
• Where do you plan to use it – indoors or outdoors?
• Which style furniture pieces is this upholstery meant for?

At Wills Furniture we always advise our designers on fabrics and their properties , recommending the best in looks, appearance, quality and maintenance, ensuring the longevity and durability matches the appearances of the fabrics selected.

The choice is yours. Let it reflect your personality, your home and your vision.
