LEAF is an acronym for “live. environmental. architectural. functional” this relates to Lars & Leesa's every day life.
Leaf Handcrafted Furniture has grown from a dream and a love of creating eye catching pieces. Made from materials that have a story to tell. Although inspired by our surroundings and the things that fill them, we strive to make pieces that are unique in nature.
Lars Laug is the maker at “Leaf Handcrafted Furniture”. Canadian born, Lars started out as a ski technician during and after school. He moved to Western Canada to pursue his love of skiing. This is where he met his sole mate Leesa. They soon moved to Australia to live. Leesa’s step Dad is a wooden boat builder and built their family home. Inspired by the surroundings Lars started his love for design and timber. Lars & Leesa work as a team feeding off of each other’s creative ideas to come up with unique pieces that are functional, modern and eye-catching.
Lars Laug (maker) stared as a carpentry building architectural homes on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Over the years providing clients with not only high quality renovations, but also finishing by often making bespoke furniture and lighting to complete the picture. Over the last 17 years in working as a carpenter/joiner he has developed many skills and has a very open mind when approaching any project!
Leesa was working at “Rewind Mid Century Furniture” restoring pieces from the mid century. It was then Lars had decided that he needed to make his dream come true and put 100% devotion into making furniture.
We enjoy making creative pieces often inspired either by materials, environments or even the clients! (that the piece is made for). We are always striving to create with a high standard, so that each piece can be kept for a lifetime and beyond. That in mind each piece doesn’t cost the earth!
