Who is MARKIAN

A joint venture between two families, the Markian Legacy is inspired by and built on the shoulders of our fathers. The name itself embodying the inspiration, Mark and Ian. The legacy, whose core is relationships, carries true craft, professional excellence and relational authenticity that extends into every connection, our team, our customers, our suppliers, our natural environment. 

This legacy is woven into every piece crafted with the Markian name. Durability. Sustainability. Enduring design. 

Markian crafts quality bespoke furniture, luxurious interior objects, rugs and fine art to reflect what really matters to you. Excellence, innovation and a home that exudes comfort and style.

The Markian soul has a passionate love for craft, excellence and relationship. A remarkable and contrarian soul. A soul that values excellence and quality, innovation and luxury. A soul that values relationships.  

Your furniture should last as long as your legacy. We don’t compromise on production methods or the cost of raw materials when it comes to producing a quality product. We also don’t believe it should cost the earth. 

Australian made and manufactured, at Markian we work to shape and uphold the sustainable product standard. We pair our innovation and industry knowledge with the latest in research, development and technological advancements. As signatories of the UN Global Compact and with pending Environmental Certification, Markian strives to uphold sustainable and ethical practices in every part of their business. 

Markian pieces mean style, excellence and innovation. 

Markian pieces mean a bold, understated, timeless legacy. 

Remarkable, markedly different and contrarian, Markian.
