'Inspired by uniquely Australian living, we create distinctive furniture and homewares for beautiful spaces. Embracing colour and texture, we celebrate our surroundings to bring you design that transforms your everyday. Developing and curating our collection together is a labour of love and everything in it is designed to inspire your creativity. We believe great design makes life better and since you’re here, we suspect you do too!'
Growing up in Napier, a small regional pocket on the western cape of South Africa, GlobeWest founders Alan & Stephen Mendel spent their young lives observing with interest their parents’ passion for collecting and restoring antique furniture for the family home. The boys’ uncle, Jack manufactured furniture, whilst their father also owned and ran a successful furniture shop retailing mainstream tables, chairs and bric-a-brac for the district. 10,000+ km from South Africa and half a lifetime later following parallel careers, the brothers decided to build something together in their new home of Australia. Combining their complementary skills under a shared passion for interiors, in 2004 GlobeWest was born.
