about us

found was established in 2006 by cabinet maker, Matt Hatcher. found brings together a colourful mix of vintage Australian and European mid-century furniture, one-off collectables and contemporary homewares. The first incarnation of the found showroom was in Palm Beach, Gold Coast. In 2010, a new premise was discovered in Tugun, Gold Coast and the team decided to move. Through the evolution of found, our ethos has always remained: quality furniture will last more than one lifetime. found prides itself on sourcing original pieces, then revitalising them using a range of restoration techniques. 

our products

found sources original, mid-century furniture locally and abroad. The found team buys from Europe each quarter and has a selection of quality Australian vintage furniture. The focus is on original, mid-century designer pieces, alongside a range of vintage and modernist lighting, pottery, artwork and other decor. The store is constantly evolving and new pieces are introduced weekly. The showroom hosts finished products, that mostly have undergone some restoration and have been newly upholstered. Beyond the showroom, the nature of the secondhand trade allows the found team to search for specific items that you might be looking for. From there, found can restore and upholster the pieces to your suit your needs. Please contact in-store, or by phone or email to find more information.
