BASED ON THE GOLD COAST
Creative by Nature
Hello. Welcome to Berrili Furniture by Design. My name is Damian Berrili and I have been designing and building live edge furniture for over ten years. My artistic skills were developed young by my much loved Grandfather. He taught me the art of sculpting and painting and encouraged my love of creating.
I started my career as a cabinet maker before spending 12 years as a billiard table craftsman, where I constructed tables from scratch. It was during this time that I developed the skills of wood machining, wood turning, French polishing and upholstering. I was also lucky enough to train in the contraction of traditional domestic bars.
I have always had a love for the outdoors and nature so when a friend, John Brennet, introduced me to the world of live edged timber it was a natural step forward into a different but very exciting skill of building furniture.
I began making modern rustic billiard tables, bars, dining tables, coffee tables, television units and beds, each as beautiful and unique as the trees they were produced from.
As much as I appreciated and loved the work and skill involved in producing each unique design I had the idea of adding materials such as metal, glass, resins and acrylics to my live edged timber creations.
My designs took on a whole new captivating look and my business “Berrili” was born.
