Richard Ellis Design, An Introduction

As our introduction to the world of blogging, we thought we would give our readers an introduction to us, the people behind Richard Ellis Design.

Richard Ellis Design grew from humble beginnings nearly 40 years ago and was founded by Richard Ellis.

Having come from a background in arts & history, it made much sense for Richard to eventually find himself dealing in architectural antiques. After a short time, Richard began importing antique marble fireplaces from London as part of his collection. It followed naturally that he would then work on the restoration and repair of the fireplaces he imported. Once these techniques had been finessed and a market established, Richard began manufacturing his own designs and eventually, Richard Ellis Design was born.

The latest addition to the Richard Ellis Design team was Richard’s eldest daughter Madeline.

Having grown up around the business, Madeline has always had an interest in the design industry. After studying Interior Design, Marketing and working in design recruitment for a number of years, Madeline happily become part of the now family business.

Since its inception Richard Ellis Design fireplaces has featured in numerous publications such as Belle Magazine, Vogue Living, House & Garden, Grand Designs Australia and Habitus, and has amassed collaborations and relationships with some of the finest designers Australia has produced in recent years.
