Behind the design: why we created the Kirribilli timber furniture range

At Koala we’re constantly doing more to fill our products with thoughtful innovation. Our guiding light is always stylish simplicity, which is why our Kirribilli timber furniture range really shines. Designed to be both beautiful and practical, the Kirribilli Bookshelves, compact Console, wooden bed base, TV Unit, side table and coffee table are a modern twist on an elegant classic look. Make like Pokemon and catch ’em all! 

What makes our Kirribilli range an understated standout?

Well-rounded elegance 

Yes, this is definitely a nod to the beautiful curved corners of the range. The Kirribilli range design delivers understated elegance can’t be overstated. Soft lines in a solid, beautiful ash timber that showcases a gorgeous natural grain. The five-piece timber furniture range celebrates warm timber in a timeless form. 

Beauty and brains

Across the range, the accentuated curved lip provides a visual contrast and serves a purpose. On the wooden bed frame, the lip secures your Koala Mattress in place for a no-slip guarantee; while on the timber console and solid timber bookshelf range it keeps your precious items from easily being knocked off the edge. 

But we didn’t just stop there, while minimising the aesthetic we maximised the storage. In particular, we’ve removed the middle leg underneath the Kirribilli Bed Base so you can use 100% of under-the-bed space as storage. Clever, huh?

Quality with a conscience 

Like its namesake, we’re holding Kirribilli to being responsible for our planet. Each piece in the premium range is built using high-quality FSC® certified solid timber. Plus, with each purchase of the Kirribilli Bed Base, we’re planting a tree in partnership with WWF. 

The Kirribilli range isn’t just built to last, it’s built to help our environment last too. 

Keeps you cool, calm, and collected

We’re calling it.. tools down. Forever.  Like all Koala products, our Kirribilli range boasts tool-free assembly so you don’t have to mess around with leftover nails and loose screws. We’re all for keeping you stress-free with simple, intuitive assembly that takes you from box to shelf or bed in a few minutes.
