Warwick Levy: Echidna Krafts

After being very much in demand in Sydney, Echidna Krafts has now relocated to Brisbane.  Owner Warwick Levy is passionate about creating beautiful yet functional custom made children’s furniture, all at a very reasonable price.  A cabinet maker with more than twenty years experience, Warwick designs the pieces himself and uses only high quality, solid Australian plantation timber.  This means the furniture will can easily manage the wear and tear of childhood, but also contributes to a healthier and more sustainable environment in children’s bedrooms and beyond.

Kids love the fun designs and parents love the handmade, high quality products which will last throughout the childhood years.  Warwick’s 5 year old son, Marlon is an enthusiastic tester and supporter of Echidna Krafts. Marlon’s own room is kid heaven, with beautiful, colourful sturdy furniture which creates an atmosphere of fun, while also teaching him to be organised with neat places for all of his personal treasures.  Many products are cleverly designed to adapt as children grow, such as the change tables with a removable rail to convert into a regular set of drawers.  They also allow great use of space, with unique design features which look great and help keep toys tidy, like a mini bookshelf on the side of children’s tables.

Furniture is made to order and can be customised to match the decor of each child’s room or personal taste, such as cut outs in a variety of shapes like stars, dolphins or hearts. Most pieces are available within 4-6 weeks (or even sooner) and can be delivered throughout Australia at a reasonable price, or collected in North Brisbane.  There are always several pieces in stock available for either purchase or to view as inspiration in North Brisbane, and a range of past work and possibilities can be seen at www.echidnakrafts.com.au. Warwick is happy to provide free, personalised, obligation free quotes and can be contacted on echidnakrafts@gmail.com.

Echidna Krafts is not only for the kids!  Beautiful bookcases, cabinets and unique wicker-storage units are practical and functional storage solutions for anywhere in the home.  Warwick can build furniture to order and can provide a free measure and quote in North Brisbane.

“Though many customers order online, for others it is also important for them to be able to see the quality of the pieces, and to be able to open the drawers and doors and just simply see how it looks and feels,” says Warwick.  He currently works from a home studio in Brighton, North Brisbane which is open by appointment, and has been a popular participant in a number of markets such as the Good Buy Baby Markets at North Lakes and the Redcliffe Sunday markets.  As demand has increased, he has moved into a small workshop in Clontarf and viewings are available most evenings.

Several celebrities love his work with Georgie Parker, Billy Moore, Doug Mullray and Jeff Fenech all purchasing furniture from Warwick in the past. Echidna Krafts has also been featured in the Sydney Morning Herald, Family Circle, Woman’s Day and in the movie “Son of the Mask”.  In Sydney, Warwick employed a number of staff to keep up with demand, and was popular at several Sydney markets.  He supplied wholesale to stores such as Babies Galore, Blitz Furniture, Twinkle Tots, Beachwood, Mind Alive, Jedo’s Beach House, Captain Snooze and Lilly and Lolly.  Wholesale enquiries can be directed to echidnakrafts@gmail.com
