RJ Living embodies the relaxed, Australian way of life; thoughtfully creating urban and modern designs that enhance the natural beauty of your home.
Each product is designed in-house by a team of young passionate professionals. Our mission is to create timeless pieces that can’t be found anywhere else, so your space stays uniquely you.
Since 2012, RJ Living has operated as a family-owned Australian business. Founded by David Janovic, the business was born out of his desire to deliver unique designer furniture, without the inflated price tag.
With his vast knowledge and the support of an experienced team, RJ Living has firmly cemented itself as an industry leader for quality designs sought after by interior designers, architects, stylists and design enthusiasts alike.
At RJ Living, we’re not just a furniture brand. We’re a design-led business, inspired by global trends that help us deliver original designs that truly represent the laid back Australian lifestyle.
Australian designer furniture may be our forte, but we also understand that the heart of our country lies in its vast diversity and multiculturalism.
Although every product from the RJ Living collection is designed in Melbourne, we proudly partner with a range of local and international brands to complement our unique collections.
By working with them and combining our collective passions for interior design, we let you bring a piece of the world back into your home.
I am so grateful that our clients turn to us to provide unique home interior pieces.
No matter the client’s taste or the complexity of the project, RJ Living can fulfill their furniture brief.
I am tremendously proud of our team and what we are achieving in the interiors space.
