One look at Lifestyle Furniture's airy new showroom in Bathurst Street Hobart is enough to confirm that the demand for quality Tasmanian timber is alive and well.

Lifestyle Furniture is owned by Martin Bowen who is also behind Launceston’s Tall Timbers Furniture. His commitment to procuring Blackwood, Tasmanian Oak and Sassafras from Britton Timbers, is paying handsome dividends.

“Customers come to us from all over Australia and the world, and they want one thing- quality Tasmanian timber.” Martin says Lifestyle Furniture ships dining, bedroom and occasional furniture as far as the U.S.A., U.K. and Europe. “Tasmania is known for its fine furniture and apart from the ‘walk-ins’ to our showroom, we got a lot of web-hits.”

“Our customers want solid furniture made from Tasmanian timbers, rather than Chinese imports. Our four staff in Hobart have been kept very busy since we opened our doors November,” Martin said.

Lifestyle Furniture and Tall timbers Furniture have had a long association with Britton Timbers and the relationship looks set to continue for as long as customers continue to value top-quality furniture made from sustainably produced Tasmanian timbers.
