Early Settler’s first store was established in 1985 in Victoria trading in Country style furniture. Over the next 20 years Early Settler grew to 23 stores operating throughout Australia and New Zealand and expanded its range to include classic colonial, European and contemporary styles.
We specialise in high quality timber and soft furnishings with matching homewares. In store you will find everything from dining room and loungeroom furniture, bedroom and home office, outdoors and garden through to occasional furniture such as coffee tables, side tables, entertainment units, couches and much more.
Our furniture is made from a wide variety of quality new and recycled Australian, New Zealand and imported timbers such as eucalypt hardwoods, Oak and renewable resource hardwoods like Fruitwood. Available in a wide variety of finishes and stain colours, our extensive range ensures that you get a multitude of choices to enhance any décor or colour scheme.
As direct importers we save you money and ensure highest quality.
Importing direct means we can closely monitor our manufacturers to ensure that they adhere to the highest standards. By cutting out the middle-man we ensure you get the highest quality, largest, most extensive range for the lowest price possible.
