About Us

Over 30 Years ago brothers Dan & Sam Kalanderian risked everything to open a store in Sydney’s Architectural Gem, the Refurbished Queen Victoria Building.

Supplying beautiful table linens at affordable prices, Mr Tablecloth was an instant success. After 10 years of having one of the highest turnover retail stores in the QVB, the idea of converting the Basement Storage space was born to open Victoria’s Basement in 1996 as the anchor retailer of the Queen Victoria Building. From its humble beginnings as one of the smallest stores (13sq mtrs) this iconic store today occupies the entire south end Basement of the Queen Victoria Building. A homewares treasure trove of the World’s most Famous Brands at Famous Basement Prices.

Today the brothers have grown Victoria’s Basement across Sydney with massive stores that are up to 4000sq metres including a full offering Online Store.

Victoria’s Basement still owned & operated by the brothers is an Australian Family Company employing a dedicated team of over 100, offering World Famous Brands of Cookware, Kitchenware, Glassware, Cutlery, Dinnerware and much more at Famous Basement Prices.
