Company History

The Porch is run by Chris and Julie Athanasiou. It started when Chris fell in love with the Adirondack style of chair, but was unable to easily find a supplier in Australia.

Much research time later, Chris had set up a collection of the chairs of differing designs. He soon realised that the classic design and comfort of the chairs was perfect for the Australian backyard, beach and patio lifestyle, and decided to use his extensive knowledge of the product to set up his own business specialising in this style of furniture, with a range that caters for all tastes and budgets.

We have been running the business since 2001 with many satisfied customers from all parts of the country. Many comment on the comfort and durability of our chairs surpassing those of cheaper 'gift store' chairs.

Chris and Julie have been working from home in Kallista in the Dandenong Ranges of Victoria for several years while raising their children. To accommodate growing demand for our products, we have now set up a warehouse and showroom at 1/11 Laser Dr, Rowville. It's not far from the Monash Fwy and Eastlink. Chris is there most weekdays but is often out on deliveries so it pays to call first. Please note that we are not open on weekends. If weekends are the only time you can come for a viewing, then contact us and Chris will do his best to make special arrangements. Thank you for your consideration.
