KEEP THE PIECE
GORSIA DESIGN’S NEW MELBOURNE SHOWROOM IS THE PLACE TO GO FOR THE KIND OF QUALITY STATEMENT FURNITURE YOU’LL LOVE FOREVER.
THE HOT SEAT Gorsia Design has been creating covetable handcrafted furniture (such as the Rivoli-X lounge chair, pictured) for more than 20 years. But until recently, Australian shoppers could view the collection only online. Now, in good news for local design lovers — and anyone who’s lusted after a piece but wished they could see it in real life before committing — Gorsia Design has chosen Melbourne’s Southbank as the site for its first international showroom.
Thanks to his background in architecture and his extensive travels, Gorsia Design founder Jay Gorsia brings a unique approach to his furniture brand, with each piece designed to provide functional luxury.
“Gorsia Design delivers quality above all — quality in terms of materials, construction, finishes, overall look, feel and comfort,” he says. “We’re constantly seeking new ways to do things differently and to revitalise classic ideas with modern techniques.”
Each piece is handcrafted in Kolkata, India, and the team works with home owners, interior designers and businesses to customise its designs to suit their needs rather than merely decorating spaces with trendy furniture, Gorsia says. The architect and designer, whose work has taken him around the world, says Melbourne is the ideal setting for his new showroom.
“To find inspiration, I always look outwards and take my cues from my travels, weaving them into my designs,” Gorsia says. “This is why we chose Melbourne for our new home. It’s a rich melting pot of cultures — a true reflection of Gorsia Design.”
