History

Stylecraft has been providing furniture of original, and according to the prevailing style of the time, contemporary design for 60 years. Initially established in Melbourne in 1953, primarily as a workstation provider, Stylecraft first expanded to Sydney before embarking on a national presence and establishing an office in Singapore. Our guiding principles of providing quality furniture of original design, together with exclusive representation of our brands, was established in the formative years of the company. Whilst our product offering evolves with the changing needs of workplace environments, our service culture and support of the design community will always endure.
