James Stewart Furniture will be on display at the Design + Decor 2021 trade show.

See The Best Of Australian Design IRL At This Epic Trade Show!

22nd April, 2021

Decor + Design returns with a huge product offering PLUS a seminar series with Mim Fanning, organisation guru Sally Flower + more!

One of Australia’s largest interiors trade festivals was one of the first big industry events to go virtual this time last year. How good does it feel that it’s back in person?!

Decor + Design will return to the Melbourne Convention Centre this July with hundreds of exhibitors across furniture, lighting, textiles, art and soft furnishings, as well as a fabulous line-up of local presenters.

Alongside the VIVID Design Awards for emerging designers (always a highlight!) editor-in-chief of Australian House & Garden, Tanya Buchanan, will host presenters Thomas Hamel and Becky Yager of Sydney design studio Thomas Hamel Studios, magazine giant Robyn Holt, interior designers Cameron Kimber and Mim Fanning, organisational guru Sally Flower and more in an international seminar series that will celebrate Australian Design. The program of workshops and presentations also has a renewed focus on sustainability and the role design can play in shaping the post-pandemic world.

Entry to the trade hall is free but registration is essential, while the seminar series costs $55 per ticket. Register here.
