Tuft and Buttons is a new business, established in Melbourne, Australia in 2013 by me - Stephanie Doyle. Inspired by a passion for beautiful furniture, my philosophy is to design and manufacture exceptional bedroom furniture and home furnishings that are affordable, great quality and locally made.
From personal experience I know that it’s difficult to find furniture and homewares that suit your personal style. Furniture that is special and different, yet still affordable was a challenge. I wanted furniture that aligned with my style and would suit my home, that would last more than a couple of years. Unfortunately I couldn’t find many options that weren’t mass-market imports. That’s when I came up with the idea for Tuft and Buttons.
"Clients are looking for something unique, which they can have customised according to their own specifications"
Tuft and Buttons is now a reality and last year I launched my own line of stylish, bespoke upholstered bedroom furniture at the 2013 Herald Sun Home Show and Grand Designs Live - Sydney and Melbourne. Our personalised furniture is custom made and can be tailored to your needs. All items are individually crafted and can include details such as fabric piping, stud finishings and your choice of wood stains.
All pieces from my range are manufactured in Australia and apart from supporting the local Australian economy and ensuring that we keep these manufacturing skills alive, manufacturing locally affords better control of the process and quality assurance of the product.
Tuft and Buttons is now a year old and it's been a busy year! We have added soft furnishings to our range of bespoke furniture. Our new cushion line is also custom made in Melbourne and we hope to add throws and bedlinen to our range shortly. Many of our pieces are now proudly in many Australian homes and I hope you're enjoy these pieces as much as I do.
Founder / Director, Tuft and Buttons
Stephanie Doyle is a career marketer of more than 20 years, who a year ago took a chance and moved in a different direction to start her own bespoke bedroom design business, Tuft and Buttons. Whilst her background is marketing communications and business development, at the beginning of her career she also studied product design. She loves what she does and is inspired by beautiful bedrooms. One year on, her goal remains the same - to design and manufacture exceptional bedroom furniture that is locally made.
