At Home with Shannon Bennett

With a long list of achievements to his name, Shannon Bennett is one of the world’s most sought after chefs today. Restaurateur to the award-winning, three hatted Vue de Monde, as well as the successful chains of Cafe Vue, Bennett recently joined the latest season of Masterchef as a resident mentor. This new venture is not only a further continuation of Bennett’s blooming profile, but a brand new challenge to the celebrity chef.

There’s much to love about Bennett, including his down-to-earth approach; if not apparent on the show, it certainly is clear in his definition of hospitality: “Hospitality isn’t about the individual, it’s about fulfilling goals and ideas as a team. I get more pride out of that.” Beyond his life’s work, we’re certain that Bennett also feels pride returning to his beautiful South Yarra located home every day.

Designed by Percy Oakden, the c1881 ‘Barwon’ sits on a 1226sqm land with four bedrooms and two studies, as well as a self-contained apartment alongside the pool. Recently purchased by Bennett in early 2013 for an estimated price of $5 million, the historic Victorian mansion’s elegant interiors are reflective of the chef’s adherence to classic techniques in his culinary profession.

Inspired by Bennett’s luxurious home, our Grace dining chair collection is high back chairs at their very best. Milled in only the finest mixed fabric by our crafting team with over twenty years’ experience, the Grace makes for a lovely addition to any home. However, at Brosa, we are also big believers in beautifully crafted, practical furniture, and the Grace is the epitome of this philosophy. The Grace can be purchased with replaceable slipcovers, perfect for the inevitable spillages that we all know happen from time to time, especially with children and pets in your home. In addition, the slipcovers are an easy yet affordable way of adding the much-desired sophistication to your home decor.


The Grace chair is now available across a wide range of colours: classic cream, french beige, heron grey, night black, petal turquoise and stone grey.


We understand that furniture shopping can be a stressful experience for many, and at Brosa, we would like to make your shopping experience as stress-free as possible. Bringing a new piece of furniture that you love, after all, shouldn’t be stressful, but one that you look forward to. That is why we have our 7-day no questions return policy: in the case that your newly arrived Brosa furniture piece does not suit the overall vibe of your home decor, or for any other reason, we are happy to return your furniture, no questions asked.


Take advantage of this, as well as our Australia-wide free home delivery to metro areas for a limited time, when choosing from our Grace collection today.
