In 1981 Leo and his son Anthony made the move into furniture manufacturing under the name of ‘Oscar Furniture’ which produced high quality lounge suites for the Australian domestic market. With Anthony in the director’s role, the father and son ran the business together for 25 years before Leo settled into retirement.
In the early 2000’s Anthony recognised that low cost imports were threatening the traditional furniture market and transformed Oscar Furniture into a leader of lift chair design and specialised manufacturing for the health industry, while continuing with Australian Manufacturing to the highest quality standards.
Today Oscar Furniture is best known for it’s highly customisable ‘made to measure’ lift and recline chairs, the ‘Hudson’ and ‘Barwon’ (Formerly the ‘Brumby’ and ‘Menningham’). These models give the customer the ability to individually increase and decrease each of the critical dimensions of the chair or add on a long list of modifications and accessories in a cost-effective manner. In addition to the two flagship models Oscar has developed a range of specialised ‘High Care’ chair models, most notably the Vertical lift, M5 bariatric and B24 mobile recliners. Each of which cater to each unique who’s needs can’t met by generic chairs offered by our competitors.
