About

Importer of fine Scandinavian furniture.

“ I have always admired simple classic design that is both functional and timeless. Top quality European furniture is a good investment – not only for it’s longevity and stunning good looks but also for the workmanship that goes into every item of furniture. I hope you will love my range of classic European furniture as much as I do” –  Simon

 

Simon de Wolf | Founder

Simon has been in the furniture business for over 40 years, commencing with Sebel in 1972, before joining Featherston Interiors, specializing in Herman Miller furniture, in 1975.

In 1978, whilst living in London, he secured supply with 2 of the original Thonet Bentwood factories based in Poland.  In 1979, together with friend, Richard Daniell, they established Thonet Australia. Thonet supplied the majority of Architects/Designers and Restauranteurs throughout Melbourne and Sydney over the next 30 plus years.

After a rewarding and satisfying 36 years it was time for a change so he and Richard finally sold the business in 2015.

De Mobler – A new beginning

Simon has had a close association with the Siesta chair range for over 35 years and he has always wanted to present this range in a proper manner with extensive stocks, thus reducing EU waiting times.

Whilst in Norway visiting the L. K. Hjelle family in April 2016, Simon sealed the exclusive rights in Australia for Fjordfiesta (the licenced producer of the original Scandia range, designed in 1957 by Hans Brattrud). To complement this fine range, Simon also secured the rights to the Hanna Korvela – Hand woven rugs made of cotton and paper yarn from Finland
