truly sustainable furniture

Here at southwood we keep our products natural in the true sense of the word. Our upholstery is made with natural latex wrapped in 100% wool, instead of the ubiquitous petrochemical foams and Dacron wrap of contemporary manufacture. We have gone back to the traditional methods of the mid 20th century, before plastics took over in the 60s and 70s.

Three generations of potters

Robert Gordon has a long history in ceramics. Since 1979 the family business has established themselves as a well known Australian brand. The founder, Robert Andy Gordon followed in his mother’s footsteps, helping her in her studio from a small boy and later becoming a potter in his Gembrook home. Starting out selling pottery at local Melbourne markets with his wife, his pots sold as quickly as he could make them.
