Authentic design. Not fakes.

As Australians we have every reason to be proud of our vibrant arts and design community. Sadly, our Australian furniture designers are under threat due to imported counterfeit copies of their furniture, lighting and homeware designs. As consumers we are damaging our local industry when we treat shoddy ‘replica’ copies of iconic furniture as disposable decorating items destined for landfill.
