Last year, our upholstery team had the uttermost delight working with Qantas in refurbishing some luxury designed furniture in their lounge located at Sydney Airport. Well, they have finally been returned and are looking fabulous in their home.

Our upholstery team had an absolute pleasure working with Qantas not only to restore these exquisite pieces to their previous unparalleled beauty, but also to be a contributing factor in helping Qantas achieve their goal of a 30% drop in waste reduction by 2020. It has become extremely necessary to do every we can to reduce waste and landfill by recycling and reusing wherever possible. And what better way to do this by reupholstering the furniture instead of throwing out these worn but still usable pieces into landfill.

It’s Design is committed to minimising waste and helping others reduce their ecological foot print. By reupholstering these lounges and armchairs, we have significantly extended the lifespan of these products and helped the environment by reducing waste. The process of reupholstery enables us to help preserve the designs from brands such as Living Divani, B&B Italia, Walter Knoll and Poltrona Frau, but at the same time revive the look of the piece by giving it a fresh, modern new look.

Here is just some of what the refurbished furniture looks like!

Another year of the world renowned IMM Cologne has passed. And as always, the IMM Cologne has out done itself once again when presenting the latest global furniture and interior design trends. The innovative designs inspire the coming seasons trends as the event is a key driver and a creative centre in the global furniture market scene.

From the moment we entered, we were sent into another world filled with unparalleled inspiration in all things furniture. The sheer degree of expertise within one European city was immense and profoundly stimulating, being able to experience all the latest innovations and concepts come to light.

The trend towards re-releasing vintage and new modern classics has become a well-established one within the furniture sector. This year was no different as we saw many of the biggest brands celebrate their heritage and values in their new collections. A key influence was retro inspired classic designs with bold and brash colour clashes. It is clear that these classic designs are timeless and authentic as they are re-released with a contemporary twist.
