Production & Lead Times

production & lead times

With 2020 proving to be an unprecedented year, we’d like to give you an update on lead times for our Italian made product offering at Retreat Design.

We are pleased to share that our current manufacturing lead times are back to pre-Covid in the Italian factories and we have encountered minimal shipping delays.

Lead times for our cabinetry (inclusive of manufacturing & shipping) are as follows:


10-12 weeks for laminate finishes

12-16 weeks for woods & lacquer finishes


Italian factories generally take 4 weeks summer leave in August each year however given the lockdown in April it has been reduced to one week which is good news for us awaiting product in Australia. Strict hygiene practices are the new norm at our Italian suppliers such as Arrital, Effeti & Arredo3 with manufacters ensuring their workers adhere to mask & distancing rules.


We are excited that the Retreat Design showroom at 156 Onslow Rd, Shenton Park is now open and we are having meetings and consultations in the new space. Work is still in progress with the installation of our kitchen & bathroom displays however we expect everything to be fully finished by early October. Stay tuned for details of our formal opening party.

Retreat Design has been busier than ever over the winter months and we’ve got some great new projects to install soon. If you’d like to book in an obligation-free design consultations with one of our interior designers, give us a call on (08) 6101 1190. We look forward to helping you realise your home dreams!
