Art Furniture

Designs Australia offers the opportunity to order a piece of personalised contemporary art in the form of furniture, inspired by Australian artist Monique La Fontaine’s award-winning People Shrines project.

Furniture designer Mark Wang and La Fontaine collaborate on customised furniture design that caters to your functional and stylistic requirements whilst also reflecting the unique identity of any subject that you may wish to celebrate.

Commissions involve close consultation with each client to develop furniture that could take the form of a homage to a loved one, an in-depth portrait, an altar for the veneration of ancestors, or more decorative and stylistically abstract pieces.

We can create a crafted piece of any style, contemporary, classic or whimsical, large or small. Speak to us about your creative desires and functional needs and we will take you on a journey to bring your art furniture to fruition.

Customised design, fine craftsmanship, and contemporary art with unique personal significance.
