We couldn’t end our week about Australia without letting you know which are the design events you can’t miss this year…
While we’re mostly used to hear about big design trade shows and events in Europe and the United States, it’s also nice to be reminded that Australia’s interior design scene is also cooking up a few great events until the end of the year. See below a selection of some of the design conferences and events happening all over Australia we are most excited about. At the end, you will also find a list of some other great events around the globe which you might be interested in.
