There’s something about Melbourne. From its magical gardens to its atmospheric laneways and beautiful interiors, it has a sustainable magic that is the envy of other cities.

We are delighted to announce that two of our favourites, Adelaide Bragg and Charlotte Coote, will be speaking on Thursday 13 July 2023 at the Seminar Series, in partnership with The Design Files. Join two of Melbourne’s best-known interior designers for a wonderful discussion with Robyn Holt (left), Former Editor of Vogue Living, on what gives the city and its interiors such timeless elegance.

Decor + Design & the Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF), Australia’s longest-running trade events for the interiors and furniture industry – will be back at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 13 – 16 July, with the theme of ‘Elevate’. Along with hundreds of brands exhibiting indoor and outdoor furniture, soft furnishings, lighting, textiles and art, there will be an increased focus on Australian Made and socially conscious design.
