We spoke to Totem Road  brand and marketing consultant, Kelly Müller, about the process, the vision and the memories she hopes to make in her home build. She recently added the Totem Road Luxa Dining Table after considering the impact its production had on the environment as well as how it was made and how long it would last.
The living room is often the primary space for entertaining, connecting and gathering so it's important to consider designs that are as inviting as they are comfortable.There are endless possibilities when it comes to decorating this communal area but before you add the finishing touches, let's take a look at the five must haves for function and flow.
Each year in Australia, the equivalent of 800,000 three-seater sofas, 1.65 million dining tables or 3.4 million coffee tables, are thrown away and while our disposable culture is an underlying cause, so too is the poor quality of modern, mass-market furniture.
Made from sustainable solid oak and 100% linen cushions, the Sage Sofa is a relaxed and elevated addition to Totem Road. Our newest offering features a low to the ground profile and curved edges, with four solid round legs.

When Talisa Sutton and her family moved from the Eastern Suburbs to Southern Sydney, one of the deciding factors was more space.

At Totem Road, we recognise that our impact on this planet comes down to the choices we make and we try to be as mindful of our impact as possible - giving and taking in equal measure. What's considered ‘sustainable’ is constantly changing so businesses need to continue to evolve as technologies and benchmarks do.

Director and Owner of made to order bed linen brand MILOU MILOU and our very own General Manager here at Totem Road, Jo Steel is passionate, driven and intentional.
