We’re winding down now and feeling a little tired on our trek back and forth across Sydney for Saturday in Design. Our next stop was Warehouse 625 which was an empty warehouse that had been converted into a funky showroom housing six companies. The place was pumping.
Bathe and Hansgrohe were showcasing their tap and bathroomware, Ilve had their ovens and cooktops, Interstudio had brightly coloured stools, Ontera Modular Carpets were reusing and recylcing carpet, Porters Paints had wallpaper by Catherine Martin, Classique had beautiful outdoor furniture, Studio Bagno had stunning bathroomware and Warwick Fabrics had their new collections on display. But the piece de la resistance had to be that amazing installation hanging from the ceiling over the stairwell. All those green shoes. How clever.
Laminex were also there. Hasn’t laminate come along way? Beautiful colours and fantastic decorative patterns for any situation.
And then we jumped a taxi and headed down to Darlinghurst to visit Mico and Stylecraft. The installation at Stylecraft was amazing. It was called “Binding The Senses” and was made of ring binders all interlocked together.
One more stop for the day, one last taxi ride, one last look around. “Hooray” say the feet. “Thank Goodness” says the head.
