About us

HOME INDUSTRY developed from a love of textiles and interiors and is the creation of sisters Simone and Martine Kilo, along with mother Patricia.

We offer a unique bespoke service to custom make beautiful, locally handmade homewares and interior products. Re-upholstery, bench seating, cushions, custom made curtains and blinds are service specialties.

We have a selection of quality interior fabrics in stock from Australian and international brands, which you can buy off the roll and we can source and obtain specific textiles to order.
We regularly source unique vintage items and feature an ever changing selection of cushions, tablelinen and upholstered furniture in the store, which we produce here in our workshop.

The Home Industry Team

SIMONE has a background in business finance but soon established more creative endeavours with her vintage store Vanilla Bean in Balmain, Sydney. Many past, and now new clients contact Simone for her keen eye for curating and restoring vintage furniture.

MARTINE has a degree in Textile design and has worked in creative industries for over 25 years. Having been Art & Print manager at the iconic Mambo and Production Manager for textile brand Clothfabric, she brings her industry experience in design, product development and operations to Home Industry.

PATRICIA has been restoring furniture and teaching others to do it for many years, including groups of women in small rural towns for TAFE. Her wealth of creative knowledge and know-how seems endless and she shares it by helping with our custom upholstery projects and by crafting items for the Home Industry shop.
