Our Client wanted to bring a unique bar cabinet into their dining room space, that leads onto the deck. This cabinet doubles up to serve the dining and deck dining spaces.
Our client, came to us and asked for a bar with character and style. They selected this timeless style, that works with all other styles of decor.
We used Am Walnut timber , with a leather insert in the pull down section for serving. The inside of the cabinet is also Am Walnut, with solid brass supports and we added two leds lights in the display area, to give this section a soft glow at day and night.
Our client’s words: Matthew and his team have created something unique that could not be bought from a store at any price. With exceptional quality displayed in the construction, finishes, and details, I look forward to enjoying my dry bar with friends and family for many years to come. To complement the end result, the design, construction and installation process was hassle free. Would recommend Finer Living to anyone who is looking for that special piece.

Anju Designs contacted Finer Living to carry out a full
transformation of a very tired looking 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Apartment
in Arthur Street New Farm.
Penny (Manger Director) From Anju
Designs arranged a meeting with the owners and myself (Matthew Hunsche)
to discuss how we could open up the space and create a very modern but
Anju Designers and Finer Living worked very closely
together throughout this project, every detail was taken into
consideration, from lighting, to extra storage under the bed to even
considering the water filter. Every room had to fit into the brief from
the owners, from Sarah’s bathroom to Craig’s office.
is no room for a dining room table, Anju Designers took the risky move
of making the stone island bench larger and longer, which fitted into
the space beautifully. The kitchen design with builtin LED lighting,
works wonderfully with the stone material.
We also created a new
feel in the bedroom by way of new joinery furniture, with LED lighting
and more storage space in the upper cupboards.
New BBQ Area , with a pop up Tv makes the courtyard a really relaxed atmosphere to sit and unwind.
Everyone is overjoyed with the success of the project and the apartment now looks like new, breathing a fresh life into the space and creating a living environment that works perfectly and compliments the lifestyles of the owners.
Our Clients Testimonal:
I recently used Finer Living for a complete apartment renovation
which included full custom designed kitchen, bedroom, office and
bathroom. In conjunction with Anju Designs, Finer Living tailored and
delivered a clean modern living space that presented as desired;
minimal, clean and functional. Attention to detail was immaculate, and
the organisation was effective in communicating and solving any issues
that arose. Matthew is easy to contact and committed to completing all
minor touch ups without extra charge. Both build and design worked hand
in hand in order to produce the home I visualised living in. I would
recommend Finer Living to anyone looking for a custom high-end result
with minimal issues.”
One of Brisbane’s Leading Interior Designer Companies commissioned us to make furniture for Hayman Island on the Whitsunday Islands.
Consisting of a collection of Four poster beds, stone top dining rooms tables, Lobby seating shaped like Boats, desks and side tables, all made of a mixture of different timbers and finishes.
There was also a large amount of custom upholstery work involved in this project, the Canopy over each four poster bed had to sit just right and flow down each post and each four poster bed had upholstery sides and foot head.
There were also four custom chairs completed in White leather for the foyer area.
It was great project to work on , and all our clients involved are very happy with the end results.
Here are some pieces in progress on the workshop floor.
We built this home office from an empty space in the apartment of the Abian Apartments in the city. We made the zen style sliding doors from French Walnut and used fabric inserts to allow air flow. The sliding doors allow a divide between the office space and home space. The owner was very specific about needing filing cabinets and cupboard storage. We used French Walnut and created fun nooks in the centre for display objects.
We worked with Wrightson Stewart Interiors to design the space.
The owner is very happy with how the office space was created and we will be making a desk to complete the space.
We were asked to turn one of the bedroom spaces in the Abian Apartments into a walk-in dressing room. There needed to be a sensational space to display handbags and shoes and it needed to be protected by glass. We decided to add LED lighting to highlight the viewing. We used American Cherry Solid timber and veneer to create all the shelving, doors, sliding draws, jewelry pocket draws, hanging spaces and mirrored sliding doors. We also covered the interior column with 24 carat gold leaf which really adds a glamorous feel to the whole room.
The owner is over the moon with their new dressing space and highly complimented our level of detail.
We worked with the interior designers Wrightson Stewart Interiors on this project.
This dining room table is a real eye catcher, made to look as the legs are coming through the tabletop, creating depth and structural curiosity. Our clients loves this table and the look it achieves. It is made from French walnut with solid oak stain black legs.
Solid Oak Coffee Table with 70mm top. This table has an off centre leg design to add a little bit of interest to the look of the table but still keeping it highly practical. The table is very solid, indestructible and yet also small enough not to be intrusive. Made for the second living room to accommodate children, this table will sustain and maintain it’s look of playfulness and fun design keeping the room fresh and inviting.
Our clients both work from home and wanted an office environment that had style and was welcoming for them everyday. The brief was to make it modern but also very simple and practical. We used a Satin Black Laminate for the top and edged and made drawers from Solid Spotted Gum. The leg design was a way to create something interesting and eye catching, two tone legs in the Satin Black Laminate and the Spotted Gum also. The desk allows alot of space and legroom for more than 2 people if required. The legs are definitely a feature of the office. Our clients love their new workspace.
