A client approached us who had acquired quality pieces of furniture during the 1960’s and 70’s but was having to downsize and could only take her favourite two Moran chairs purchased new in 1972.

These chairs were worthy of complete re-upholstery as the frames were sturdy and the sprung edge was in good condition. The original upholstery was stripped to the frame with new jute webbing, hessian, high density foam overlays and polyester encased premium cushion inserts used in the rejuvenation process. The result is these two luxurious chairs are in new condition ready for many more years of enjoyment.

The Moran story started with John Moran completing his upholstery apprenticeship then starting Moran Furniture in 1950 at his mother’s garage then shifting to a rented factory in Glen Iris. Moran Furniture grew over the decades providing furniture for several generations of Australians however now manufactures in south-east Asia.

Moran Furniture was always marketed with the “5 Points of Difference”

  1. Genuine 8 way hand tied springs
  2. Spring cell seat cushions
  3. Body correct lumbar support
  4. Kiln dried, close grain hardwood timber
  5. Premium leathers & fabrics
