About Us

Birch Living is the inspirational culmination of over 10 years in the gift and homewares industry for Peter Ellemans. A background of a science degree in horticulture, and an employment history as a buyer/manager at some of Melbourne's best retail nurseries, owning and running his own stores in country Victoria, to buyer/product developer for a leading homewares company, has led him to open birch living, in the inner city strip shopping precinct of Clifton Hill.

Birch Living offers a stunning, unique and beautiful array of gifts and decor from around the globe, all at affordable prices. Peter strongly believes that you don't have to "pay big money to achieve the look, invest wisely in quality furniture and have fun surrounding yourself with stunning accessories and decorator items". birch living came about nearly 6 years ago after Peter spent some years in the wholesale homewares industry travelling the world sourcing and developing products, but after most of his working life in retail, missed and yearned for the personal and varied contact of customers. So, birch living presents a heady colorful mix of Homewares, Gifts, Candles, Toiletries, Wall Art, Lamps and more, to scent the home, decorate your living or work space, soothe and pamper the body, create a calming corner, and spoil your family and friends.
