Each piece is tied to its intrinsic story, the life it led, the beauty it added to its surrounding environment and now its new life which will be celebrated in your space for a lifetime.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Sawn was founded by industrial designer Paul Hulsinga with the intent on changing the timber furnishing industry in Australia.
He went on a journey to find the most unusual timber to use in his premium furnishings initially working exclusively with recycled timber he was amazed with the exceptional local opportunities to use storm affected hardwoods, naturally fallen trees and dead trees.
His skill in working with unique materials has been the cornerstone of the Sawn brand and why he has created his Signature Collection which only includes one off and limited edition runs.
The transformation from the raw material to the finished product was nothing short of breath taking and is now why Sawn is regarded as one of the top designers in Australia.
