These are the best places to buy original furniture

There is no better feeling than setting up your space, exactly as it should be. Everything is where you need it. The feng shui is on point, and all is well in the world. Our homes are sacred spaces and personally, for my space to feel special, I need my furniture to feel unique to my taste.

We've found a selection of second-hand and curated stores to pick up your next piece. We as humans are drawn to colour, lighting and home decor whether we know it or not, and having pieces in your home that you feel proud of, does wonders for you and anyone else spending time in your space. There's beauty in searching far and wide for that perfectly offbeat chair or adding a fun bowl to your bookshelf. Below is a curated list of where to buy original furniture.

Sarah Ellison launched her modern and innovative furniture brand in 2017. Her style is distinctly clean and simple with a nod to Australian-centric design. Her signature pieces are rounded chairs and languid couch shapes (the types that feel you could just sink into and stay forever and ever).
