All iron pieces were hand signed Fer Forge and with the makers name.

Interior Designers and Architects across Australia consulted to Stephen Condell to design bespoke furniture and feature works for their projects.
The business grew substantially, supplying interior designers and architects across Australia, New Zealand and Internationally for bespoke custom fit outs in Exclusive Private Residences, Boutique Hotels, Internationally Renown Hotels and Resorts and National major Commercial Fit outs for Banks, Insurance Companies and Organizations.
After moving from Sydney to Melbourne, he was one of the first to set up property presentations styling homes before sale. Most items were custom built by Stephen, including feature artworks painted by Stephen.
Property presentations then led to building and renovating, specializing in designing bespoke kitchens and bathrooms and custom-made cabinetry.
Over the years he has continued to research, gain knowledge and experience in interior design, history of antiques, lighting and other areas of decoration.
Time for a change came in 2020 during the Covid 19 pandemic, with the decision to utilize his skills in establishing an online store specializing in products of design merit and quality and to offer collections, usually not available unless specified by designers.
As a business, it will continue to seek new product ranges from local and international manufacturers and suppliers who offer classical designs, quality workmanship and sustainability in product sourcing and manufacturing.
