The collaboration between suppliers and design firms was abundant, showcasing the best product each had on offer. Congratulations to Europanel, Geyer and The Initiative on their winning collaboration 'The Podium' at Eveleigh.
For me, standout experiences included the Arthur G and Designer Rugs showroom, not to mention their great Aussie BBQ and lamington gelato from Messina. Arthur G debuted their new collaboration with Diane Bergeron who brings New York sophistication and an eye for intricate details. Boasting heritage inspired castors, beautiful piping detail and embroidered embellishments, this range will soon become the favourite of many.
The furniture at Arthur G was set upon a stage of pattern and colour from Designer Rugs. With a Camilla rug proudly prominent at the entry, geometric black and white patterns and Greg Natale collaborations were scattered throughout the showroom - a beautiful execution of two great brands coming together.
Cafe Culture beautifully displayed the Lee Broom crystal bulb pendants which are well and truly in the minds of many interior designers right now. Keep your eye out as these beauties will pop up in interiors all over the country.
Reece Bathroom Life launched the winners of the Bathroom Innovation Award whilst displaying the new Phillipe Starke range. The bathtub is simply stunning. Next door, Spence and Lyda celebrated their new showroom with chocolate treats and an incredible product display. This is a showroom that everyone must see - beautiful product that will compliment any interior.
Eveleigh was a highly anticipated stop on the designers trail, showcasing a great range of new product including a snapshot from Catapult Design. The English Tapware Company displayed their new Black collaboration with Perrin and Rowe and Basil Bangs, vibrantly catching your eye with their hanging umbrellas. Zuster enticed you to make the trip to their new showroom by displaying a few items from their new range. For those who are yet to visit, Zuster is a company who evolve with every collection and always offer beauty and finesse in their work.
This is an event that keeps getting better and better- I cannot wait for its return to Melbourne in 2014.
