THE DESIGN FILES OPEN HOUSE IS BACK IN 2017
Exciting news today! The Design Files (TDF) has just launched their highly anticipated 5th Open House event, running from Wednesday November 23rd to Sunday 26th.
TDF Open House isn’t your typical pop-up. It’s a unique retail experience, showcasing the ultimate Australian home – a bustling, colourful space furnished with our favourite locally-designed furniture, homewares and lighting, as well as artwork by talented Australian artists, books by local authors and much more. As always, each and every item can be purchased on the spot!
‘We love uncovering new talent, so this year we’ve introduced over 30 brand new artists, designers and makers to the line-up,’ said Lucy Feagins, Founder and Editor of The Design Files. ‘We’ll be featuring ‘NAU’, the new Australian-designed furniture collection from Cult, and the latest kitchen and laundry appliances from Miele, including their new Art Line series, alongside more than 80 incredible creatives – Stephen Baker, Henry Wilson, Nicolette Johnson, Fred Fowler, Douglas & Bec, Anna Varendor , Bobby Clark, Ross Gardam, Den Holm, Mark Douglass, Hannah Nowlan, Sean Meilak and more!’
Visitors can take their time exploring the pop- up home, which is painted with four key hues from the Dulux 2018 Colour Forecast – ‘Dulux Dieskau’, ‘Dulux Chainmail’, ‘Dulux Friends’, and ‘Dulux Very Terracotta’.
Make your way from contemporary living and dining zones through to our custom- designed kitchen, before perusing the moody master bedroom and a playful kids area. Then relax in our lush courtyard landscaped by Phillip Withers. For the first time, there will also be a ‘Speaker Series’ of talks with some of the featured creatives and TDF’s tastemaker pals.
‘Our favourite homes on the blog are vibrant, lived-in and full of personality,’ added Lucy. ‘We hope a tour through our Open House will leave you informed, inspired and full of ideas for your own living and working spaces!’
We LOVE the Design Files Open House, it’s the BEST way to get a serious dose of interiors inspo and walk away with lots of great homewares goodies while you’re there. See you there!
