The Moran Story

Handcrafting the finest examples of bespoke upholstered furniture since 1950. Moran furniture is designed in Australia for Australians and is an investment in uncompromised luxury and comfort. A Moran is a statement in style that commands attention.

john-moranThe Moran story started with John Moran who completed his furniture apprenticeship and started Moran Furniture 50 years ago in his mother’s garage. He soon outgrew the garage and rented a factory at Glen Iris in Melbourne.

John believed in adding beautiful detail to the hand-crafted furniture with piping, arm caps, matched patterns, exclusive fabrics from Overseas Mills, and specialty European Leathers

Moran is the most recognised premium furniture brand in Australia. This distinction has been earned by supplying three generations of homemakers with prestige furniture. The corporate ethos is modern but with genuine, traditional standards like quality, comfort and value for money. Moran is South East Asia’s leading premium specialist upholstered furniture brand and has produced around one million pieces of furniture.

Our people don’t race to do their job fast. They strive to do it best.

By focusing on the details, they ensure each piece of Moran furniture is greater than the sum of its parts. By that, it offers comfort to your body as well as pleasure to your eye. This ensures every item of Moran furniture gives premium performance while others grow old and tired. In short, Moran believes good objects are designed with honesty and integrity. This then provides comfort and everlasting value.


Moran’s legendary level of comfort and quality of construction cannot be achieved by taking shortcuts. Each Moran sofa and chair is individually made to order using best practice crafts that many other manufacturers have replaced with mass production techniques that often fall short on body correct comfort and longevity. Moran puts the finest materials to work using the highest standard of craftsmanship. This is the guarantee of your investment in Moran.

OUR Points of Difference

Spring Cell Seat Cushions

These cushions are almost a sofa in themselves. They certainly add extra comfort and extend performance. They begin with tempered steel springs which, to avoid squeaking, are individually placed in calico pockets. These are then carefully positioned in the highest grade, resilient foams – the world’s best in fact. All this is then carefully covered in premium quality bonded fibre before being upholstered in your choice of fabric or leather. Because of this you receive more than a sofa when you choose a Moran. You possess a calm retreat and a welcoming refuge from stress.

Body Correct Lumbar Support

This ergonomically designed system ensures long-term relaxation. It is specifically design to support your lower back. This is aided by Moran’s sprung edge which provide vital support behind your knees to help protect the sciatic nerves. It means you don’t have to wriggle around all the time to get comfortable.

Kiln Dried, Close Grain Hardwood Timber

Moran’s underlying quality begins with a structural engineered frame. To ensure a precise fit in the joinery, the cutting of this close-grain, kiln dried hardwood foundation is computer controlled. It is then glued, double dowelled, screwed and corner blocked to ensure it won’t bend or twist in years to come.

Premium Leathers & Fabrics

All Moran upholstery coverings are carefully selected for their high durability and are wear tested to ensure they withstand the pressures and spills of modern Australian living, domestic or commercial. Where leather is used, it is always 100% leather.
