Koskela

For a pure experience in Australian design, try Koskela. Owners Russel Koskela and Sasha Titchkosky left the finance world in 2000 to open a platform for local talents. Koskela himself designs the long, low furniture, which is merchandised compellingly alongside the personal accessories, kids’ stuff and lighting that together form a realistic picture of a stylish home. Koskela is located up a flight of steps, which heightens the sense that you’re just removed from the madding crowd. It also means less of a sidewalk presence in a quiet area of converted warehouses, so search for it carefully.

The duo’s work, like the trim Stretch Series spun-fiberglass stools, could be mistaken for Italian design. It is also New York high-concept, as seen in the interactive, linked-tetrahedron modular sofa that the firm launched in 2005. But the furniture is all made in Australia. The same goes at more mainstream Schiavello, which manufactures its entire inventory on shore to the tune of a recent $40 million facilities upgrade.

At Planet Furniture, designer Ross Longmuir both minds the shop and creates some of the striking pieces available for purchase. Longmuir’s streamlined chests, nightstands and stereo storage units are constructed of spotted gum, a local hardwood, that is peeled into 3-millimeter layers and crossbanded into boards. The technique combines the strength and weather-resistance of MDF but not its crumbly veneer; the resulting caramel-colored furniture is as sturdy as solid wood and will develop a rich patina over time. Planet Furniture lovingly showcases its wares with artwork, ceramics and even stuffed animals in studied vignettes.
