Maison Instyle

The inauguration of an Australian interiors and design fair not only presents an exciting opportunity to see the best and newest in Australian design, it also promises to enrich and consolidate the sector.

24 Apr 2012

Hosted at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne, the collection of design-focused interior products will be highlighted against the ornate decorations of the 19th century structure. 

A selection of the most promising and interesting suppliers and designers of crafted products will create Australia’s single best opportunity for designers, decorators and retailers to get a sense of what is available on the local market, and will showcase the nation’s brightest talents. Covering furniture, home accessories, home textiles, lighting, interior surfaces, kitchens & baths and emerging sectors the fair promises to be comprehensive and eclectic and offers a unique opportunity to match aesthetics across different product classes. 

Particularly exciting for our design hunters is Next Instyle, a collection of products from emerging Australian designers that gives us a preview of what might be on show a few years down the track.

Maison Instyle builds on the success of the Life Instyle concept, shifting the focus from international to local design and strengthening the community of design-oriented individuals and brands. The fair will launch with a catered champagne reception followed by the opening of carefully manicured exhibits to promote the very best of Australian design.
