Aries Trading - Our Story:

Aries Trading was formed in 1992 with a vision to import quality furniture into the Australian market. Initially starting with importing high quality replica Mahogany furniture this set the foundation for years to come.

In 1994 Aries Trading became the licensed sole distributer for Australia of the highly exclusive Maitland-Smith Range. This saw the creation of exclusive retail shops located in the Como Centre and Double Bay selling the Maitland-Smith range as well as supplying the wholesale trade market. Around the same time we also started the introduction of Rattan Chair importation with the Como Tub Chair and Neo Classic range.

Aries Trading continued to evolve with the growing market tastes and it became apparent that there was a lack of quality Rattan furniture available in Australia, so we continued to expand the range of products available. We had succesful relations with many factories making our product designs under licence -which also saw the evian range being exported to the world for the first time. As with any big factory the more quantity that was being produced saw a decline in QC which was simply unacceptable to our standards. This was a blessing in disguise as it began the steps to creating our own independant production facilities exclusivly making our entire product range to our high QC expectations.

By 2006 our independant production facilities had ben established and our small but dedicated team was making products for the Australian market.

In 2011 we first exhibited our unique range of boutique furniture at the Jakarta International furniture fair under our own brand and by 2014 we had exported containers to South Africa, South America and Europe making our products now globally available.

In 2014 we refocussed our intention to the Australian market and began a new campaign of custom manucturing goods to order. This shift in business model not only allowed for a cap on costs but also opened up the option of creating individual designs for the exclusive Interior Decorator market and Retail Shops wanting to create their own unique look.

After 25 years involvment supplying the Australian Furniture market we have now found our niche market and plan to keep supplying the Australian consumers with exclusive hand made Rattan products for another 25 years.
