    Thonet offers affordable, high quality, authentic designs sourced from select European companies

    To most, Bentwood stands as a shining example of what can be achieved through design. Its form both expresses and symbolises the manufacturing process that lay behind it. Technically simple, each piece embodies the principles of mass production: strong and durable, inexpensive to manufacture, and transportable in large quantities. Thonet bentwood chairs are made from European beech using traditional steam-bending methods. Part of the collection still arrives unassembled, and is carefully constructed in our Melbourne workshop by skilled craftsmen, as it has always been.

    Thonet Australia is a family-run business based in Melbourne; our showroom is housed in a historic Victorian building which dates back to the 1880s. Here, the classic products are showcased through grand arched windows which peer out onto vibrant Brunswick Street. Our Sydney showroom in Roseberry is pared-back simplicity; a light and airy space full of natural light which perfectly captures the grains of the timber.

    Easy to live with, offering timeless appeal and simple functionality, the Thonet Australia collection reflects the Australian way of life—effortlessly combining classic European pieces with a relaxed and contemporary lifestyle, be it in your favourite dining establishment or within your own home.
