our story

Project 82 was established by Shelley Mason in 2010 as a boutique furniture store servicing the locals of Surry Hills in Sydney. After six years operating as a retailer of other brands, we’re excited this year to refresh our direction and introduce three of our very own ranges. Our Staple&Co, The Sofa Maker and Design Kiosk collections are a great Illustration of the Project 82 aesthetic, all with simple details, natural materials and quality craftsmanship.

Early in 2017 our small inner-city space in Surry Hills closed its doors and we now operate solely from an industrial style showroom in the Alexandria Sydney. The huge space with crisp white walls and raw concrete flooring is a great blank canvas to showcase furniture in the most creative setting.

The majority of our products are made locally to order in Sydney utilising the best of Australian design and manufacturing skills. Its great to see that the industry as a whole has seen a return to making locally and we’re proud to be part of this movement. Australian design has come of age.

Our audience has moved well beyond the community of locals to include design professionals from around Australia who appreciate original design, quality workmanship and a personalised service.

Its been a great start, and we’re super-excited about the road ahead, with lots of new ideas and collaborations to come.
