Our Story…

Located in Pinjarra, 15minutes out of Mandurah, Artra is a family business, producing kitchens and commercial cabinetry for the greater Perth region, and regional Western Australia. In keeping with the family tradition of handcrafting custom furniture, our specialisation and qualification lies in fusing together a range of materials and finishes to create truly unique, warm and inviting living spaces.

You could say timber is in our blood. We have a long history of creating solid timber furniture, primarily through Artra’s sister company, Arcadian Concepts.

Arcadian Concepts was established 6 years ago in Narembeen, by Tim Drag. The roots of Arcadian Concepts came from humble beginnings, with Bernie Drag establishing a small custom furniture business in Perth in 2001. As it grew it was relocated to Narembeen in the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia and rebranded.

Over many years, Bernie, the master craftsman, taught son Tim the art of woodwork. Tim is an engineer with a managerial career, but eventually realised that his true passion resided with furniture and cabinetry. So, in 2010, Tim, his wife and two young children uprooted themselves from Adelaide to join and develop the business in Narembeen (and we’ve never looked back!).

Together, the Drag family grew Arcadian Concepts, producing distinctive, hand-crafted furniture, décor and giftware from the finest Australian hardwoods, including Jarrah and Marri.

Over time, Tim saw potential to expand the business to include kitchens and commercial cabinetry. With a burning desire to get this new side of the business up and running, the Drag’s acquired Artra, a company with 30 years of history in producing and selling fine, hand-crafted Jarrah furniture pieces. With such a solid history in cabinetry, the Artra name was the perfect vehicle for the new ‘kitchen’ branch of the business, with the Artra furniture range living on through Arcadian Concepts.

Today, Artra Cabinets prides itself on professionalism, outstanding customer service and flexibility. Beautiful products built to last, you can be assured that every Artra kitchen and commercial fitout or cabinetry project embodies the Drag’s strong family values and superior craftsmanship.
