Mike Brown - CEO | Owner of GHIFY by Craft Deco

A warm welcome to our website, and thank you for taking the time to read about our business!

I’m Mike Brown, the owner and manager of the company which makes and markets the GHIFY range of furniture.

With over 40 years experience working in the timber industry, I am very pleased to be involved in utilising timber which has already served a useful life, turning it into beautiful, but practical furniture.

We pride ourselves on continuing the high quality standards that the GHIFY name represents and are striving to expand the range of designs on offer.

Because everything is handmade to order, we are able to customise our production to meet our clients’ needs, by way of design, finish or dimensions, and are happy to take any bespoke product requests. We love to bring your ideas to life!

As furniture makers, we are all too aware of our responsibility as stewards of such a precious resource as trees. With the “Once Upon A Queenslander” collection, we love that we can use our role as furniture makers to champion the use of an environmentally responsible material for building bespoke furniture. We have made it our mission to salvage as many Queenslander houses as we can, and repurpose them into beautiful and functional furniture so they can take their place of honor once again in our homes. Through our business and this collection, we are able to share our mission and share the benefits of using recycled Queenslander houses with those around us. Our aim is to empower and encourage our customers by demonstrating that with the right design, superior craftsmanship and creativity, old Queenslander houses can be transformed into equally beautiful and functional furniture.

Recycle! Repurpose! Remembered!

Shop at your leisure anywhere you like and we'll have it delivered right to your door. All that from the comfort of your arm chair. We'll even gift-wrap it for that someone special in your life. Furniture shopping doesn't get any easier than this! We're constantly adding new items to the store so we'll love for you to come back and visit us real soon.

In the meantime, we hope you'll like the work we do with these lovely recycled timber and someday, one of them will make its way into your home or office to become a beloved family heirloom.
