With a rich history and tradition of local craftsmanship, Vietnam has long been a favorite destination for furniture manufacturers from around the world. Many early Vietnam furniture products bore the country’s unique hand-made charm. These hand-crafted pieces had a connection to the history and traditions of the country as a whole. The style of workmanship often carried through generations, as many local artisans were brought up using traditional methods of craftsmanship. Over time, the unique style of Vietnamese craftsmanship has evolved into modern, highly refined designs.
Australia’s rise to power as a leading furniture producer in the furniture market was founded on the shared vision and values of Australian and Vietnamese investors, merging the two countries’ interests to create a unique furniture design. After independence from France in 1945, Hanoi was guided by a steady policy of progressive economic growth and social integration. Today, the city developed an enormous industry for its domestic needs, and now furniture production is primarily handicraft. Many Vietnamese furniture manufacturers are based in Australia or New Zealand, where labor costs are much lower than in Vietnam. Over time, Vietnam’s economy will likely grow and Vietnam’s furniture makers will face greater competition in the global furniture market.
Vietnam’s architecture and craftsmanship have created a unique environment where both designers and manufacturers can thrive. This dynamic culture and landscape provide the necessary conditions for efficient, innovative production and marketing of high-end furniture. Hanoi embraces the design philosophy of Vietnam’s strong rural roots, with attention to the local environment, the environment and the people who live there. This focus allows Vietnam furniture manufacturers to produce functional, beautiful and unique furniture.
