In 2017, Canberra based furniture designer Elliot Bastianon and Canberra industrial designer René Linssen established Furnished Forever, a furniture company with a focus on high volume commercial and residential applications. Furnished Forever places the emphasis on Australian manufacturing—particularly those based in the ACT and Southern NSW region. This allows a direct dialogue with industry and ensures every piece meets the high standards of the studio. The unique strengths of both designers have resulted in a collection that floats between commercial application and crafted detailing.
