Surry Hills Showroom
Savage Design opened the doors to their first showroom at 10am on Thursday the 12th of December 2019. After trialling a number of locations, they settled on the 2010 postcode of Surry Hills in NSW as our area of choice. This marks a new era for the company and while there have been a number of massive developments over the four generations of family ownership, this one, is truly exciting.
For over 100 years the family has been waking up early, putting on steel cap boots and heading to the factory. A place of grease, sweat and sparks (mostly from the welding). While this will not change, they will have another home to visit. One filled with class, comfort and coffee.
There is a back story to this new venture, involving many characters including the craftsman behind Newtown’s characteristic terrace and graveyard iron work, a manufacturing pioneer, a heroic feminist and the team of one of Australia’s leading manufacturing companies. The team are looking forward to telling these tales to clients amongst the furniture, lighting, hardware and accessories now with a permanent address.
The interior has been designed in-house by the design department with signature dark tones and highlights of brass, bronze and steel throughout. Joel Savage (4th Generation) describes it as;
“A space to really embody the company; precision, attention to details, honesty and a bit of grease thrown in for fun. Our customers are now able to immerse themselves in the whole experience by seeing and touching our products along with hearing about the history of the pieces and the business. The showroom will be staffed by designers and engineers so our customers know they are getting the most technical and up to date information from the people who create our furniture, lighting and hardware.”
James Groom (Design Director) describes the opening of the showroom as;
“The perfect time to release some of our biggest and boldest products to date. Most of these products we have been designing and prototyping for the past 5 years. This is mega for us, as we will now have the perfect space to showcase this range of intricate and versatile products.”
