Green Cathedral designs and manufactures modern Australian furniture. Their range of beds, cots and stools features Porta’s Tasmanian Oak dowels. The company was formed after founders Tim and Sally Scarce wanted to design a bed with what is now their trademark soft round lines with a coastal vibe. This unique bed design relies on Porta’s select grade Tasmanian Oak dowels that Sally says, “give me the design flexibility and simplicity I am after.”
Green Cathedral’s beds and cots are inspired by the soft curves and shapes from Japanese, Scandinavian and mid-century designers. Starting out in a small shed, Tim Scarce and his wife Sally now operate from a much larger factory in Noosa.
Porta is proud to support this successful design duo.
