Catapult - Habitusliving.com
Founded in 2013, Catapult Design quickly became leaders in the manufacture, distribution and retail of quality lighting, furniture and accessories. Their range of designers focus heavily on Australian talent, and many of those are emerging or have been with Catapult since their early days. This represented collection is complemented by an in-house Signature Collection, manufactured locally with an eye to detail and what people really desire. They have excelled at both the large and small scale, and are strong collaborators with a history of custom-made items for a bespoke outcome. Their Sydney showroom is at Shop 40, Republic 1, Kings Lane, Darlinghurst.
