Something Beginning With 3

Melbourne’s Something Beginning With has launched three new furniture designs blending striking form with practical function.

The Maiko Coffee Table, Side Table and Charlie Desk Chair have been added to the Something Beginning With range as the brand continues to grow. Originally Founded in 2011 by industrial designer Lisa Vincitorio and celebrated visual artist Laelie Berzon, these three new designs complement the entire SBW range of elegant, functional furniture.

Maiko Coffee Table: Something Beginning With approaches all their design with curiosity and playfulness; the Maiko Coffee Table results from these elements. The powder coated mild steel rods of the Maiko table meet to form a structural and sturdy, yet dynamic table base.

The Maiko Side Table is the little cousin to the coffee table, and makes an equally striking impact in home and hospitality environments. Solid yet visually light, the balanced design has an emphasis on spaciousness and continuity.

The Charlie Desk Chair: The Charlie stands tall and proud on an aluminium, black powdercoat base with four castors. The chair is lightweight and features a polypropylene shell and beautiful upholstery.

These new designs from Something Beginning With exude the timelessness that the brand is known for; yet show a new playfulness for the company. Like all SBW designs though, they manage to enhance the style and comfort of any residential, commercial and hospitality environment.
