Welcome to what I believe to be the first website dedicated to the unique style and quality of Ed Rosenstengel furniture. Ed Rosenstengel and his craftsmen operated out of premises in Fortitude Valley Brisbane between 1922 and 1958 over which time they developed a reputation for producing furniture of outstanding quality and unique design. Despite this, little information is readily available on either the man himself or the furniture he created. It is my hope that this website will address this to some degree and contribute to an improved understanding and appreciation of the work produced by this celebrated Australian furniture designer maker.
