OUR TOP 10 FROM THE DEN

Touted as 'Australia’s leading destination for contemporary design + art', DENFAIR has just wrapped up its third issue in Melbourne. Although only in its infancy, DENFAIR has quickly cemented itself as a highlight of the Australian design calendar. After 3 days of carefully curated, high quality design experiences, in leaps and bounds it has landed with much accolade on to the world's design stage. Thousands of architects, interior designers, stylists, specifiers and retailers flocked to Melbourne's Convention and Exhibition from 8 - 10 June to admire the brightest talent from local and international brands. 

We have bookmarked our Top 10 designs and designers from this years exhibition - some are old friends and some are exciting new talents we can't wait to work with.

1. FRED INTERNATIONAL
