The Orient Express has been a family business since its origins in 1998. From humble beginnings in Hong Kong, owner Murray Tozer saw an opportunity to bring something unique to Australia... something few people had seen.
The first containers were sold by son, Paul... literally straight out of the back of a truck! 12 months later The Orient Express showroom was established in Victoria Street, Richmond and established itself as being one of the first retailers to offer Oriental antiques at an affordable price.
Family members, Paul and Penny are now the face of the business, but with the ever watchful eye and words of advice plentiful from Murray!
Our love of Asia and our passion of "hunting & gathering" every single treasure in our showroom is testament to our dedication!
We now have 2000 sqm of showroom and warehouse space, filled to the rafters at any given time with containers arriving on average every 4 weeks.
We pride ourselves on our eclectic mix of furniture from China, India, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, Laos and of course a few local bits and bobs for a truly unique shopping experience!
The majority of our furniture is antique or vintage. Timeless pieces that fit any decor, whether that be contemporary, Victorian, Art Deco or Industrial.
We also have a large changing selection of antique textiles, Ching Dynasty ancestral portraits, vintage Indian kantha quilts & cushions... and more than you could ever list!
So if you haven't been in to our showroom, we look forward to seeing you soon. Mention that you have read our LinkedIn profile and have a coffee on us!
