DesignFARM is a family-run furniture business based in the heart of Perth.
Owned by father and son – Rodney and Jamie Washer – the business is built around a love of contemporary design that is ethical, innovative and sustainable. While they sell brands from around the world, they are particularly interested in representing Australian furniture brands. DesignFARM’s ethos is to only support the sale of excellent, original design – they wouldn’t dream of selling a replica.
Recently, DesignFARM partnered with NOMI, to be the exclusive commercial dealer for their products in Western Australia. NOMI fulfils all of their higher-level criteria and Jamie describes a series of other qualities the partnership a great match: “WA designers love timber and being able to customise sizes and finishes. I think the new range of products from NOMI including the Gathering and Jasny collections, will do really well over here.” Above all, he describes that it works because “…we are very much aligned in our values.”
The business is focussed on serving the commercial sector, specifying furniture for workplace, education and hospitality projects. Working alongside interior designers, DesignFARM likes to be involved as early as possible in the design process, to ensure that the right product finds its way to the right space. The pair believes that great design can improve life, empower an individual and contribute to better outcomes for the planet.
