Made in the USA

 

About Koala Studios

All Koala Studios are custom made by American Craftsmen in the USA. They are beautiful in their design and appearance and are built with the best materials and utmost care, providing a lifetime of enjoyment.





Rounded Beveled Edges

 

About Koala Studios

 

Koala Studios feature rounded corners and beveled edges, enhancing the Studio’s appearance and eliminating corners that snag fabric.

 






Rich Elegant Veneer

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios are available in eight elegant finishes and will enhance any decor.

Each studio is finished in the same rich veneer and color inside and out and top to bottom, making it as beautiful opened as it is closed.

The finish is a thick vinyl veneer that is hard-wearing, scratch-resistant, water-resistant, and easy to clean.








Remote controlled G3 Electric Glide Lift

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios’ innovative lift design enables the operator to effortlessly position their machine at any level with the push of a button. The user has a choice between a hand-held remote control and a built-in toggle switch.

The Koala G2 Lift has been designed to support all machines and provide a stable platform at every position. Two solid rails extend the full length of the lift platform, and the direct drive rack and pinion system moves your machine smoothly and quietly.






Large Capacity Full-Extension Drawers

 

About Koala Studios

Koala Studios feature full-extension drawers that glide open and close softly. The silent soft-closing hydraulic cushion makes the drawers impossible to slam.

The 5/8-inch framed drawer boxes combined with the steel drawer glides are weight tested to hold up to 120lbs. fully extended.

 




Multifunctional Bi-Fold Doors- Notion & Fabric Palettes

About Koala Studios

 

Koala Studios provide flexibility to minimize or maximize the Studio’s designated space by using or removing the Multifunctional Bi-Fold Doors.

 

If space is minimal, the doors can be folded flush to the sides of the Studio, or the doors can be easily removed.

 

If room permits, usable surface space or storage can be added to the left or right by attaching Notion & Fabric Palettes to the weight-bearing doors.

 

The Palettes can be positioned withing a 270-degree radius, providing usable surface areas where needed to support a variety of projects.

 

All studios are designed to pair together and if needed, the Bi-Fold Doors can be removed and stored.

 




Customizable Options in Width & Height

 

About Koala Studios

 

Koala Studios based models are built in widths of 27, 36, 53, and 70 inches. Each model’s footprint can be minimized or maximized depending on the Studio’s designated space.

Q: If I have a Koala Studio, what happens when I buy a new machine?

 

A: When you purchase a new sewing machine, you can order a new custom cut machine insert. Koala inserts are custom made for your sewing machine make and model and are available in either matching wood or clear acrylic.

 

If your new machine is more than 22 in. wide or weights more than 50 pounds, then you will need a new Koala Studio with the XL Lift. Lear more about the XL Lift here.

 

 

 

Q: What materials are used to make Koala Studios?

 

A: The materials used in building Koala Studios were chosen so that each Studio could be made with rounded beveled edges that eliminate sharp edges and corners that snag fabrics. This design element also provides the operator comfort and enjoyment of a beautiful finished piece of furniture.

 

To incorporate these design advantages, the wood core must be made from a dense, high-grade, 3/4 in. thick fiberboard with no imperfections and shaped with a computer-controlled diamond tip router. Once shaped, the board is then finished with a beautiful, thick vinyl veneer that is hard-wearing, scratch-resistant, water resistant, and easy to clean.

 

 

 

Q: Where are Koala Studios made?

 

All Koala Studios are made in our own American Midwest factory that is owned by an American third-generation family run business.

 

 

 

Q: What heights are available for the cabinets?

 

A: For most Studio models, there are three height options: 29 1/4 in., 32 1/4 in., and 35 1/4 in. The TreasureChest, StorageCenter, and CraftPro can also be built at a height of 38 1/4 in.

 

 

 

Q: What is the best cabinet height for me?

 

This question is quite personal, and there are several factors that need to be considered when making this decision in addition to a person’s height. One of the biggest challenges our customers deal with are physical issues related to aging that continue to change over time, such as eyesight, flexibility, and possible injuries. In dealing with these challenges, Koala provides several options to meet individual needs that include variables that can be adjusted over time. These variable include adjustable floors, foot control rests, machine lift platforms, and chairs.

 

Also, it is important to consider if you are only going to use the studio while sitting or if you desire to use it while standing to layout projects and cut fabric. If you want to use it for both sitting and standing, start by choosing the right standing height that meets your personal needs. From there, you will need to order the studio with an adjustable floor, foot control rest, and chair, so that it is ergonomically correct for you while sitting and standing.

 

 

 

Q: Does the Outback Leaf Extension come standard with the cabinet?

 

No. Not everyone has room for the Outback Leaf Extensions, so it is not automatically built into every studio. But if desired, it will need to be added as an accessory option at the time you purchase your base model cabinet as it cannot be added after the Studio is built and shipped.

 

 

 

Q: If I don’t order an Outback Leaf, can I add one on later?

 

No.

 

 

 

Q: What do you mean by “Studio”?

 

More than just a table or storage cabinet, Koala Studios are designed and built to complement your home, as well as inspire creativity. When using a Koala Studio, even when shared with other furniture, we consider this space to be your creative retreat. We also consider a room featuring several Koala models to be a Studio Suite.

 

 

 

Q: What is included in a Base Model?

 

The base model features are standard with each Studio, but vary on companion models. The base model features on a Studio include: electric glide lift, left and right front doors, notion and fabric palettes, internal adjustable shelves, soft-closing drawers, and built at a standard height.

 

 

 

Q: What are Outback Shelves?

 

Optional Outback Shelves are designed to be attached below the optional Outback Leaf Extension. They are designed to provide added storage and enable a user to position the Studio in the center of a room to maximize the storage and surface areas, much like a kitchen island.

 

 

 

Q: How should I clean my Koala Studio?

 

Koala Studios are easy to clean.  We often use Pledge or Windex multi-surface wipes.

 

 

 

Q: Is the finish easily scratched?

 

The finish is a thick vinyl veneer that is mar-resistant, water resistant, and beautiful. Veneer of this quality has a wonderful richness of color, but is not bullet proof. Take care when using scissors, notions, and other accessories. If ever a component of the studio is severely damaged, it can be replaced and will match perfectly.

 

 

 

Q: Will my machine fit in a Koala Studio?

 

The vast majority of sewing machines on the market will fit in Koala’s standard machine opening.

 

For the largest machines- over 22 in. wide and weighing over 50 lbs.- Koala recommends the optional XL Lift. Click here for more information.

 

 

 

Q: What embroidery machines fit in the Koala Artisan Studio?

 

The Artisan’s Embroidery Module Closet has been designed to fit the Baby Lock Destiny and Brother Dream Machine, as well as all Baby Lock and Brother machines.  It also accommodates most other embroidery modules, but does not fit the Viking Epic.  We recommend confirming with your local Koala retailer to determine the best Studio to fit your machine. Additionally, Bernina 700 and 800 series owners should choose Koala’s BERNINA Studio, available exclusively through BERNINA retailers.
