Andrew Farquhar is a designer, maker and restorer of traditional furniture whose motto is ‘quality first and always’. After training as a cabinet-maker, in the 1980s he employed 22 people in his Sydney Farquhar’s factory specialising in individual commissions and restoration. Twenty years ago Andrew and Coty moved to the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia to bring up their children and work in a more relaxed environment. Andrew has created commissioned pieces – both custom-made new designs and reproductions – for major public buildings and private homes in Australia. He loves the diversity and challenges that they bring, as well as the opportunity to work collaboratively with clients and to have them participate in the creative process. Andrew believes in lifelong learning and happily shares his valuable skills with his award winning apprentices and students.
One of the maxims during the conception of Styling Magazine was to capture and showcase the beauty of all the things that we love most. Behind every design, every creative object or artwork lives the 'creative' who taps into a source of inspiration that we at Styling Magazine believe comes from deep from within our soul. Creativity is something that some can easily tap into daily, and others, through soul searching. I believe that this creative energy is here for everyone, it is simply learning how and Styling Magazine shows you how through the stories we share.
I go in search each day for the purest source of inspiration and creativity to share within the pages of Styling Magazine. I admire and I aspire to the creative DNA of the craftsman, the designer and the artist...whose skills continue to take my breath away! Styling magazine is designed as an e-magazine, and exclusively designed for the global market, The original Styling website and the magazine have been read by millions worldwide. I endeavor each month to fill this magazine with pages of rich and beautiful inspiration. I know that our readers are inspired by our stories and by the content we provide, because, they tell us! We also know they stay online with us just that little bit longer than other sites.
The most rewarding aspect to creating Styling Magazine is, that our readers just keep coming back. Coty Farquhar
"Be gentle with the world "
We plan to go at a much slower pace...to be "gentle" with
life and gentle with ourselves.
We believe that beautiful things come from gentleness...
