The Jam Factory was built in 1858 in South Yarra.

The Jam Factory is one of Melbourne’s most iconic buildings dating back to 1858. Originally serving as a brewery until 1876, the factory then became the Victorian Preserve Factory. It was Prahan’s largest employer at the time, creating jobs for 230 locals.

Sections of the original Jam Factory building underwent redevelopments in late 2015 creating the opportunity to give the timbers a second life.

“The timber is rich with
swirling depths of colour,
its natural features
breathe history.”

FEATURES OF THE JAM

The Jam’s design is modern, practical yet sophisticated. The timber is rich with swirling depths of colour, its natural features breathe history into every design. The timbers narrative will enliven conversation in any space. Each table is unique in timber as visually stunning in design.

DESIGNED WITH PASSION

Peter  McManus is the designer behind the entire YARD range. Each salv aged beam recycled has its own narrative, a story to be told. Peter’s like a storyteller, every piece of furniture reveals another chapter within YARD’s chronicle. His carpentry background combined with his creative mind leaves no stone unturned when it comes to beautifully crafted, timeless timber pieces.

CRAFTED WITH CARE

Once the rough recycled timbers are de-nailed and machined, they then reveal their true character. From this point, the creative chapter begins.
Peter along with a small team of passionate woodworkers make our pieces right here on site in Preston.

FINISHED TO PERFECTION

Each piece is finished by hand with precision and attention to detail.
YARD uses environmentally friendly hard wax finish which brings each timber and it’s story to life.
