The Molloy chair is inspired by a rare act of nature. The idea for the artfully rounded joinery, where two elements meet and become one, comes from the unusual meeting of two rivers to form the Molloy River in WA – where Adam Goodrum hand-built a holiday home with his family.

  • The Molloy chair has stunning details that tell the story of the wood that its made from. The timber is cut in a way that enhances the grain, creating beautiful details on closer inspection. The joinery of the chair further enhances the movement of the grain, and tells the story of the movement of the Molloy River which inspired the chair’s design. The Molly collection is Australian made, manufactured locally in NSW.
