shelf / life

about us

shelf / life was established in 2009 to provide our customers with a collection of unique, well-crafted items that will be loved for a lifetime and not end up in landfill after a season.

With a background in interior design we offer a carefully selected range of modern classics that will look great in any space while minimising any social and environmental impacts.

At shelf / life we believe that good design shouldn’t be limited to the aesthetic and functional elements. It should also embrace ethical awareness.

This year we have embarked on making our business better by entering into a Plant-A-Tree programme with Aussie not-for-profit carbon solutions provider, Carbon Neutral. For every $200 you spend in our shop we will plant a tree on your behalf.


Our guarantee to you

We are committed to sourcing products with quality, integrity and longevity in mind. It is these 3 attributes that inform our selection criteria. 
Naturally some products have better green credentials than others but we will give you the whole story behind each and every item in our store so that you can make a conscious choice.
So just what are our ‘ethical’ considerations?
