HOW IT ALL WORKS
Shipping Containers London to Sydney
This is a project based website catering specifically for Australia. It's as simple as what you see under shop is what will be in the shipping container (or what has already arrived), each item is unique and usually a one off.
Are you worried about who I am, etc? Read my blog article, here!
In the description of an item, if it says PRE-ORDER, DUE TO ARRIVE Q3 2021, this would mean you're buying an item due to arrive. All other items without this information are already in Chatswood, NSW.
These pre order items might be removed from the website at any time if not purchased, as they are also available for sale in London with my UK business.
FME Furniture doesn't have a physical shop or store, all items are unpacked from the container into a storage facility in Chatswood where viewings are possible by appointment - my brother who lives in Sydney handles all local (Australian) viewings / collections, contact us for more info.
As I'm based in London, U.K. I will spend the months leading up to the shipping container departing sourcing, refurbishing (if needed) and catalouging this website with all of the gorgeous vintage and mid century furniture & home interiors headed for Sydney, Australia.
Once the container is securely packed in London it will take roughly 46 days to arrive in Sydney, Australia. I can't control the customs / quarantine process or length of time it will take to clear once the container has landed.
Prices stated include shipping, taxes and all other costs associated with bringing the item(s) from the UK to Sydney, Australia. Mostly all items have been hand wrapped with either blankets, bubble or shrink wrap (except for a few cane / bamboo pieces) so it will be easy for couriers to collect, if that option is needed.
All goods are unpacked from the container directly in Chatswood, NSW and all items are carefully checked. Buyers will be contacted regarding collection which will be at the buyers own arrangement and coordinated with the warehouse manager based locally.
Items for sale include extending teak dining tables & chairs, cane & bamboo furniture, ethnic and tribal vintage wool rugs, Scandinavian furniture, sofas and daybeds, mirrors & Ladderax, bedside tables, chests of drawers, tallboys & dressing tables and desks, to name a few.
I stock brands such as G Plan (E Gomme, Victor Wilkins, Kofod Larsen), Mcintosh, Nathan furniture, Ladderax, Alfred Cox, Danish designers, Parker Knoll, Avalon, Uniflex, Europa, Angraves, Beautility, Ligne Roset, Pieff, Ercol etc. I work with interior designers, creative directors, trade plus consumers!
FME Furniture is a registered business in the U.K. where the majority of trade occurs. As I'm Australian, I also have an ABN 60844221574.
