The finest traditions meet dazzling innovation at Legacy of the Antipodes. As a bespoke design and manufacturing business, we bring world-class cabinetry, metal fabrication, blacksmithing and furniture making to Byron Bay and beyond. We work with visionary industry professionals and individuals to create exquisite works that stand the test of time. Work with us at any stage, whether it’s from conceptual brainstorming or requesting fabrication from existing designs. Our newest service addition is an interior design arm, bringing you sustainable and gorgeously styled touches to your projects.
We are regarded as leaders in the niche of custom steel joinery for luxury projects. Marrying function with distinctive decorative touches, our intent is to fabricate pieces that endure. We are particularly passionate about achieving complex designs, such as curves and round-arch shapes.
Cabinetry can make or break a space. We are in the business of crafting daring high-end statement pieces that act as the centrepiece of a home, office or shop. Also at the core of our cabinetry approach is an ethical approach to sourcing materials, along with successful execution on functionality, to a client’s brief.
This timber and metal-based consulting service offers an unparalleled opportunity to leverage our world-leading expertise in custom furniture and joinery design and in-house manufacturing – within Australia.

Once the criteria for the Essentials package have been exhausted, any more time will be charged hourly.
We have formulated this package based on six years of 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.

Legacy of the Antipodes holds the 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, in the first instance, 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.
From mid-2023, we will offer in-house Interior Design services with our Director, Lisa. She can assist with a comprehensive service for your entire home.
Currently, we only coordinate the benchtop manufacturing and any in-house metalwork.
