Longstanding luxury retailer, Mobilia demanded nothing less than perfection when bringing their Richmond based showroom to life. Following premium Australian Fashion Retailer Vik & Woods fitout collaborations, the GOLDEN x Yarra Valley Commercial (YVC) dream team were back together on track to deliver yet another stunning fitout.

Family-owned Australian company, Mobilia curate and represent 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, the YVC team were up for the challenge, ensuring the turnkey project was seamless and that client expectations were exceeded.


High ceilings and grand volumes created “gallery-like spaces”, that offer a unique atmosphere to showcase each of the brands that reside.The minimal aesthetic of clean lines, lofty ceilings and a palette of raw materials such as perforated metal and brushed aluminium provided 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 mezannine floor that was crafted and installed both beneath and in the ceiling above. The LED lit barisole ceiling structure in from France added European style and flair to one of the many unique spaces. A circular finish seen on some of the wall ends were 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 attention to detail became the challenge, resulting in the delivery of a seemingly effortless, minimal aesthetic featuring open space and clean lines being the highlight.
