1. Tait — Fitzroy, Vic:
Housed in a corner block with a corrugated iron roof, Australian-made and -owned furniture brand Tait’s new showroom is proof that the local design scene is very much alive. Started by husband-and-wife team Gordon and Susan Tait, the company has been designing and producing furniture for 15 years and the new showroom is testament to the brand’s growing popularity. With the showroom interior designed by Melbourne-based Ryan Russell, its minimalist symmetry is the perfect setting to display the furniture, art and lifestyle accessories available. With seasonal changes and plenty of exhibitions planned for the new showroom, you had better get down there quickly.
