About Us

Our Story

When John Cootes first opened one of Sydney’s most iconic stores in the early 80’s, the vision was to offer quality-made furniture at a price that everyday people could afford.
Over 38 years later, John Cootes is still run the same way, Australian-owned and offering the best value for money furniture & homewares in Australia.
Since Australians have loved our furniture so much (returning year after year with family and friends), John Cootes managed to expand from one little store in Sydney to a chain of twelve. 
As times changed we changed with it and sadly due to overwhelming online competition John Cootes saw an opportunity to transition from being an established bricks and mortar business to an all online furniture & homewares retailer.
With feedback from our customers we've refreshed our product collection and decided to expand our offering to include some more product lines we traditionally did not sell in our stores.
We believe in keeping the customary furniture & homewares business alive and so we now offer all of our products to all Australians, selling nationwide with delivery to your front door. 
John Cootes is the honest brand that Australians have trusted and will continue to trust, we don’t believe in hidden fees and charges, so we made it FREE shipping on everything we sell. We look forward to selling you good quality affordable furniture & homewares and we will continue to grow and expand to make your shopping experience exciting and convenient.
