Mobilia-Fitout by Yarra Valley Commercial

Longstanding luxury retailer, Mobilia, demanded nothing less than perfection when bringing their Richmond based showroom to life.

Family-owned Australian company, Mobilia, curates and represents the world’s most iconic and innovative furniture brands, design masters and pieces. The flagship showroom represented a progressive approach to furniture retail, combining a series of distinct mono-brand spaces woven into the architecture of the building. A fitout of this scale was naturally complex, but the YVC team was up for the challenge, ensuring the turnkey project was seamless and that client expectations were exceeded.

High ceilings and grand volumes create “gallery-like spaces”, that offer a unique atmosphere to showcase each of the brands that reside within. The minimal aesthetic of clean lines, lofty ceilings and a palette of raw materials such as perforated metal and brushed aluminium provide the perfect backdrop to showcase the personality of Mobilia’s leading brands.

The fitout, collections, and design direction were inspired by the newest worldwide releases and mono-brand concepts. Interesting features include a footprint of the mezzanine floor that was crafted and installed both beneath and, in the ceiling, above. The LED-lit barisole ceiling structure from France adds European style and flair to one of the many unique spaces. A circular finish seen on some of the wall ends was achieved with a polished plaster applied and troughed to shape.

The most challenging aspect of this five-month project doubled as the project highlight. Such a huge amount of work and mindfulness became the challenge, resulting in the delivery of an effortless, minimal aesthetic – open space and clean lines being the highlight.
Notes from the Project Team

Design and quality were non-negotiable, and the Yarra Valley Commercial team delivered. Sarah Langley from Mobilia commented “We appreciated the team’s dedication to precision and craftsmanship” adding “the mindfulness Yarra Valley Commercial provided was second to none.”
