Open Studio: Furnished Forever studio
Furnished Forever is a commercial furniture studio founded in 2017 by Canberra-based designers René Linssen and Elliot Bastianon. The brand offers a range of highly functional products to cater for the commercial and residential markets. Furnished Forever is defined by clean lines, crisp geometry and a restricted colour palette.
Linssen and Bastianon place great value on Australian manufacturing industries. All Furnished Forever products are designed and fabricated domestically, with a particular emphasis placed on manufacturers in the ACT and Southern NSW region. This allows a direct dialogue between Furnished Forever and industry, ensuring every piece meets the high standards of the studio.
Each designer brings a unique strength to Furnished Forever. Bastianon’s education placed a strong focus on hand skills and material exploration, while Linssen’s industrial design background focused on production and commercial viability. These complementing skillsets have coalesced in a collection of furniture that floats between commercial application and crafted detailing.
