Homewares that show your personality
A home is warm and inviting and reflects the reality of daily life with all its idiosyncrasies. Perhaps your favourite chair is looking worn and tired, but it's comfortable and perfect for curling up in at the end of the day. So it stays and is layered with a throw and designer cushions. The coffee table has magazines, a book or two plus coasters for the drinks - it's the right height so you can reach it comfortably.
Whatever your lifestyle demands are, they can be reflected in the right furniture choices for you. Our homewares collections are designed with creativity and a passion for unique design. Take Your Seat understands how much a certain piece can mean to you, whether it is an inherited ottoman that needs reupholstering, or perhaps you just are looking for an office chair that can brighten up your work day, we offer services and products that can help you achieve your décor dreams.
We bring furniture and homewares that you can add to the home and reflect your own personal style. In a world where sleek hard surfaces of computers, tablets and smartphones are constant, we want to provide you with beautifully textures fabrics that you want to touch. I want to show you fabrics in cushions, chairs and quilts that are made by artisans. Fabrics that play on the senses, with patterns being mixed into a landscape of colour, shape and texture.
We offer you bespoke chairs like the iconic BKF butterfly seat and reupholstered vintage seats that simply cannot be missed. Our collections are mixed with Australian and Indian fabrics and upcycled chairs, footrests and more. Through our global inspiration we create stunning additions for your home or workplace.
II am passionately committed to seeing artisan skills being retained and artisans obtaining sustainable economic independence. I do this by finding people who have the desire to improve their life and of those around them. In India I have connected with some inspiring families and I work with them to improve their business and assist them in finding ways of expanding their revenue.
I travel regularly to North India to meet with the many families and artisans I purchase from. Their work ethic, passion and love of intricate and textured design is what inspires me to create exclusive pieces that capture the essence of their culture. I want to bring you their story and help you create your own. My passion for providing high-quality and designer options leads me to create unique pieces that offer you a portion of my love of this culture and their practices.

The butterfly chair is a favourite at Take Your Seat, both for it's classic simple shape and it's functionality. I know it's also a favourite for many others who are rediscovering the beauty, comfort and design potential of this classic piece.
As a design it allows us to change covers to encompass the seasons and reflect changing trends in texture and colour.
It's credentials as a classic design is underpinned with each generation rediscovering it and adapting it to current trends.
As a child I remember my aunty in one (with shocking psychedelic fabric cover), and I'm thankful that we now have a wide range of beautiful covers as options available.
From fabrics that are soft as the autumn wind caressing our skin to tiles as rugged as the Outback itself, texture is making a comeback and it is determined to stay. Gone are the days of bleak and boring decor, today it is all about how far our application of different types of texture can go, enticing our senses and enhancing our space, allowing our primeval instincts to come forth and enjoy what has been placed before us.
It's so easy to become overwhelmed by the amount of things you and the family accumulates. Whether you're a natural bowerbird (like myself) or just so busy that you don't have time to stop and take stock, or have deeper issues - it creeps up on you
For those of us who love all sorts of handicrafts and arts then the potential for chaos is mind boggling. Everything left over can be reused and anything that is past its best can be upcycled. There are always projects waiting.
So how do you find some space and peace of mind?
