Kristian King is a Master Furniture Maker with nearly 30 years experience in the making of fine, bespoke Australian furniture. His work is highly regarded and sought after by institutions, universities, ecclesiastical communities and Australian families. Kristian’s work is inspired by unique Australian timbers among especially the beautiful figured grains found in Redgum, Blackwood and Huon Pine.

Kristian was commissioned to produce the ceremonial furniture for The University of Melbourne, Deakin University, Australian Catholic University and Macquarie University. Kristian’s ecclesiastical commissions include the Geelong Lutheran College Chapel and the multi-denominational Chapel of St Nicholas at The Multicultural Aged Care Service in Geelong.

In addition to the magnificent University and Ecclesiastical commissions that Kristian has produced he regularly makes bespoke pieces for collectors, artists and fine-furniture connoisseurs. These pieces have included his extraordinary speciality-timber specimen drawers for a collector of exquisite kauri shells, and a quilted birds-eye huon pine and figured blackwood desk for a fine-furniture connoisseur.

Kristian has produced hundreds of custom-made pieces of furniture for Australian family homes, working closely with clients in order to produce heirloom pieces that will be enjoyed for generations. Kristian’s dining tables, chairs, buffets, coffee tables, entertainment units, chests of drawers and display cases have graced Australian homes for decades with many families regularly commissioning new pieces to accompany previous commissions.

Kristian lives in Eganstown, near Daylesford in Central Victoria with his wife and 3 children, where he enjoys working in his studio on the edge of the Wombat State Forest which is a constant inspiration.
