Our Story

Australian made
since 1987

We’ve been designing and making furniture in Melbourne since 1987, and while much has changed over the generations, we’ve always been a family business in every sense of the word. Since the beginning, we’ve worked almost exclusively with local materials and suppliers, and still employ many of the people who started with us in the beginning.

Run by two brothers, Nick and Mike Garnham, Jardan has grown from humble beginnings with only eight staff in 1997, to over 130 today. Under the guidance of Nick and Mike, we have extended our product range in recent years, from our original range of sofas, tables, chairs, and beds, to include lighting, textiles, and homewares.

In 2005, we began a company-wide focus on reducing our environmental footprint, driven by our belief in making locally, acting mindfully and minimising all waste. By making small, meaningful changes every day, we’re creating a big impact over time, becoming certified by the NCOS as a carbon neutral company in 2014.

In 2015 we expanded into retail, and now have stores in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, and online. In the stores, we create spaces inspired by the relaxed, Australian way of life, bringing our products together with select pieces from local artists.

In recent years, our manufacturing capabilities have extended beyond the home to include large scale residential and commercial projects in Australia, Asia, Europe and America.
