Sometimes you have serendipitous moments, like when I walked past the DesignByThem pop-up store earlier this week in The Rocks. The next day, I was all over this design haven from creative team Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson (who have featured in my fave homewares mags) and snapped away to show you this dream in all its glory.
Not only are their designs playful and fun but functional too! Furniture, lighting, accessories; they’ve done it all – and with sensitivity to the environment. Launched in 2006 and impressing us creative folk ever since, their designs are proudly Australian and really tap into my love of colour (and we all know I’m obsessed with that!).
If you don’t get a chance to visit their pop-up store (and missed out on their design night), there are a range of stockists about town so you can still get your hands on their precious wares. Top 3 By Design are one of the big ones in Sydney, but the DesignByThem website has a whole list of stockists – http://designbythem.com/
Let me know if you’ve been to their amazing pop up store or if you have any of their pieces in your home. I’d love to see some pics of them in action (and if anyone has the Ribs Bench, a gorgeous throw is just begging to be draped over it!).
