About Us

Period Details is a family-owned business, owned and run by David and Cathy Peake.

It commenced in Burke Road Camberwell in 1983, under the name of Victorian Edwardian Restoration Supplies. That name was a bit of a mouthful so in 1986 when the business moved to Burwood Road Hawthorn its name was changed to Period Details. In June 2015, Period Details moved again, this time to Bayswater. In line with modern business practices in July 2023 it has moved to an online business. Please ring or email us with any questions and take advantage of our extensive knowledge.

Over the 40 years, that Period Details have been in business their core business has changed and evolved. When the business was first started back in 1983 the focus was on second-hand doors and fireplaces. The move to the Hawthorn store saw a slow move away from second-hand items to reproduction items. Over the years the focus of the business and to some extent its passion has seen a shift towards the supply of Australian Made Pressed Metal.

Period Details is Melbourne’s premier stockist of Australian made Pressed Metal Panels.

Our Pressed Metal is made from mill grade aluminium and can be used on walls and ceilings both internally and externally.

 Pressed Metal is fantastic used as a kitchen splashback. Once pressed the sheets are dipped in a “non-chromate” solution. This means they are ready to prime/seal/undercoat (eg. Dulux 1 step) and then to top-coat.
