Noticing a gap in the furniture market for affordable top quality pre-owned pieces, Julie and Merv Saunders opened Chambers on Main in 2009 and deal in timeless furniture with a unique flavour.
Julie’s high-end fashion background (as a buyer for Gucci and Giorgio Armani) is reflected in the high quality of fabrics chosen for re-covering furniture. Only the best (and often, designer) frames are used for sofas and armchairs, and when brought back to life with new fabric, they become one-off pieces to enhance the home.
With fully-refurbished sofas and armchairs, side tables, consoles, chests, desks and cocktail cabinets all displayed in individual rooms, customers can get a realistic sense of how these pieces will appear in their homes. Inimitable accessories such as lamps, cushions, mirrors and throws, complement the furniture with inventory embracing most eras of furniture from antique and Art Deco, mid-century and Oriental, through to contemporary.
Julie often consults with customers in regard to interior design and furniture placement, and is more than happy to offer this service or to try and source a particular piece.
