Giuseppe Fanuli, founder of the iconic Fanuli family brand, left his home in Italy and travelled halfway across the world to Australia in 1956. With nothing but a dream and an unshakable determination to succeed with an artisanal skill in cabinetry, he opened Fanuli Furniture with the support of his family.

Giuseppe Fanuli’s dream of opening his own furniture store became a reality in 1976, when he established the first Fanuli store in Sydney. With a wealth of experience as a cabinet maker, Giuseppe had a unique understanding of the products he sold and was committed to only stocking the highest quality furniture.
Driven by his unwavering dedication to excellent customer service and refusal to become complacent, Fanuli grew steadily over the years.
In 1995, the next generation of Fanuli’s took over, with Giuseppe’s three sons; Fabio, Sandro, and Carlo at the helm. While the family connection ensured continuity in Fanuli’s identity and culture, the brothers fresh perspective led to a defining shift in the company’s strategy.
