In search of simplicity 

Plyroom pieces are designed to sit quietly in your home. We take inspiration from the restrained formal language of mid-century modernism and the purposeful approach of Shaker furniture. Each piece in the Plyroom collection is functional and adaptable to ensure it becomes a treasured part of your home for years to come. 


“Deciding what is essential in our lives isn’t about paring back our belongings and forgoing our beloved but necessary frivolities: instead of determining how little we can live with, it’s about working out what we simply can’t live without.” 
Greg McKeown


A Material Difference 

We believe that the longevity of a furniture piece comes from intentional design as well as quality, sustainably sourced materials. Our furniture is made from solid timbers and architectural grade, cross-laminated birch plywood. We love birch plywood for its structural stability, strength and material efficiency. All our furniture is finished with non-toxic, low VOC finishes that are safe for you and safe for our environment.

Established 2013

Plyroom was born in 2013 in a small town in Italy. Its origin comes from a very personal and wonderful journey where I was able to spend a slower year abroad with my family. The idea was inspired by this time, where we were able to enjoy a much simpler existence. 

Passionate about the state of the environment alongside a desire to create highly considered pieces that honour craftsmanship and functional design, Plyroom is the embodiment of these personal values. 

Plyroom’s early days began with the basics, furniture pieces that fit this notion of effortlessness and quality. Based in Melbourne whilst working with talented designers in Italy, the collection drew inspiration from the need to simplify.

Today, we work with a number of small-scale makers, both in Italy and locally in Melbourne. We only work with makers who are as passionate about the origin of materials and quality as we are. Pieces are designed and made using a mix of traditional and highly technological methods. All materials are sustainably sourced. We strive to find better ways to design, make and deliver products that are conscientious in the way they are born and the effect they have on the world around them.

We seek to create a small but considered range of beautifully designed, consciously made products. From flexible furniture that can adapt to changing needs to beautiful accessories that provide pleasure in simple rituals, Plyroom products are always bound by a simple mantra that they be pared-back staples to encourage a simpler way of living.
