Saturday In Design

I spent Saturday in Sydney at the trade event Saturday In Design and what a fantastic day we had! Here are some photos I took (sorry about the quality they are from my iPhone).
Those of you who know me know that I LOVE Coco Republic so of course the first photos are from their Designer Showroom in Alexandria, mostly from their Outdoor Collection.

I love this nest table (middle) and the daybed is pretty fantastic too

The wheels on the Tiera Coffee Table make it easy to move from place to place and the stainless steel bucket can either be used for a plant or as in the photo above to chill some champagne. I know which I'd prefer! (Let's just say I don't exactly have a green thumb)

Basket tables & chairs seem to be a huge trend at the moment

These great stools are designed by Keith Melbourne for Zenith. They are light weight, durable, UV stable & come in a lovely 'gelato' range of colours. Though designed with the Commercial market in mind, I think they would look great in any backyard used for outdoor entertaining

In this Spence & Lyda display Missoni Home fabrics were cleverly used in lighting, as wall art and in the stools

This great lighting display was also in Spence & Lyda, unfortunately the photograph does not do it justice

The first time I saw this pretty Warwick Fabric my mind was filled with different ways I'd love to use it. At SID they had a simple white bamboo chair with cushions upholstered in it and I think it looks so lovely, such a great Summer fabric

And the winner of the best sample bag of the day definitely went to Tongue n Groove. Not necessarily because of the contents (though it did contain jellybeans so hey who can complain), but because it was just such a nice looking bag. It ended up being quite the "must-have" item of SID 2011.

So there were just a few of the many products I loved from the day. I wish I had more photographs but as the day progressed the crowds got too big for me to be whipping out my phone every 5 seconds! Anyway I'm now looking forward to SID 2012 with great anticipation...
