We are Legacy of the Antipodes, a multidisciplinary design and manufacturing atelier servicing Byron Bay and beyond. At the core of our business are two French-born master craftsmen uniquely trained in the highest level of cabinetry, metal fabrication, blacksmithing and furniture making. Our pristine reputation has come from helping commercial and residential clients achieve ambitious goals.

We specialise in working alongside our clients to achieve intricate designs using both modern and refined traditional techniques, with precise execution in timber and metal mediums + more. We also offer a stand-alone interior design service for residential, commercial and retail clients. Our signature offering is high-quality projects aligned to our client’s space, lifestyle and financial scope.


artisanal manufacturing


We design and manufacture functional and decorative joinery pieces intended to last generations. Our finishes are effortlessly luxurious. They complement the complex designs we achieve, such as curves and round-arch shapes, and use the latest product innovations.


As a well-established cabinet making business, Legacy of the Antipodes (previously known as MullumJoinery Wood & Metal), is committed to blending skill with built-for-purpose drive. Our focus on tailor-made cabinetry designs means we can take on grand, bold ideas. Functionality and ethics meet in all aspects of our work.

bespoke designs


We offer in-house interior design services to residential clients, architects, builders and developers. This stream is a significant value-add to our existing Architectural, Cabinetry and Furniture design and manufacturing services, by bringing spaces alive with carefully considered colours, form and materiality. Our choices are made with a discerning eye to infuse a unique aesthetic by responding to each client’s brief.

construction and manufacturing Consulting

Our two timber and metal materials-based French master craftsmen hold qualifications from one of the most prestigious institutions of its kind in the world. Training is so advanced that the same level of qualifications are not attainable in Australia. To access our exclusive expertise, we offer a consultation service for architects, project managers and other goal-driven individuals. This end-to-end service is a personalised and complete experience that includes research, recommendations, pricing, prototyping, fabrication and installation for products in metals, timbers and other complementary products.

Once the criteria for the Essentials package have been exhausted, any more time will be charged hourly.

We have formulated this package based on seven years of tested research. We have analysed our clients’ journey from research and development through to quote acceptance for one bespoke designed quality kitchen for the average family home.

We discovered that 90% of clients who have already researched their design and lifestyle needs for their cabinetry would run with their first strong idea because it is the most considered concept.

The purpose of the package is a concise way for our seasoned professionals to take a pragmatic approach to refine your considerations.

If you find this package does not suit your needs, then we recommend selecting the Comprehensive option, where you can allow time to explore more options.

  • Return travel to and from our Mullumbimby workshop
  • Materials selection
  • Room measurements
  • Design layout and spacial planning
  • Research
  • Negotiating the best prices with our suppliers
  • Proposal preparation
  • Other necessary documentation and administration activities

Legacy of the Antipodes holds the intellectual property rights to our unique style of flood-resilient cabinets that have been engineered, designed and tested to meet our renowned high standards.

While we can accept input from other design professionals, we expect to spend time researching and verifying the design to ensure it meets our standards.

Suppose you have already engaged with a reputable, experienced professional interior designer or architect. In that case, it is normal for us to receive a set of finalised floor and elevation plans that include measurements and a specified list of materials (product schedule). Each designer’s methodology and scope of works can be different.

If plans are missing details, we may be able to make a provisional price range which will have to be refined further during subsequent consultation time. During peak times, we request you return to your original designer for a complete design; otherwise, your will experience a delay in our process.

PRO TIP: The more detail your designer specifies, the less likely you will find unrealised costs across the entire construction project, not just cabinetry.

Yes, we love working on large projects like commercial shop fitting.

It is essential to ensure that all commercial projects are highly durable as they command higher usage than domestic ones. In addition, food premises need to ensure fit-outs are food-safe compliant.

Both front and back-of-house projects involve more research and are on a larger scale than domestic projects; therefore, we recommend working on the Comprehensive service.

We offer in-house Interior Design services with our Director, Lisa. She can assist with a full-service interior design to round out the room or an entire home.

Laurent will only coordinate the benchtop supply and installation and any in-house metalwork. Lisa sources and manages all other trades under our Interior Design portfolio of services.
