Trade Event season must have started!
Today I kicked off by visiting the Furnishings in Focus event. It was an excellent opportunity for me to review a range of Australian soft furnishing manufacturers local to Melbourne, no imports. I was able to see a wide variety of products and this allows me to stay in touch with quality makers (with, I must add, varying price ranges). Again I have to mention the products are all strictly proudly made in Melbourne (the show is working its way around the major national capitals with local product at each city), something I strongly support.
Here are a couple of sofas I loved.
This gorgeous velvet sofa looked very luxurious (can you imagine the armchair version upholstered in cigar coloured leather?... I’ll take two for my family room thanks.)
And this loose cover sofa in brushed cotton would sit comfortably in a home decorated in the Hamptons style that is so popular at the moment.
The big event on the Interior Designers calendar is DesignEX, to be held late this month (Yay its Melbourne’s turn this year!). I look forward to updating you on what’s new, innovative and on trend for your home in 2013.
