AUTHENTIC DESIGN ALLIANCE® presents HOME.GROWN. // Discovering Australian Design - a three-day celebration of locally created furniture, lighting and home furnishings curated by ADA® director Anne-Maree Sargeant (AMS) especially for Sydney Design Festival 2019 program.
As the currency of ‘Australian-designed' and 'Australian made' products continues to rise - why is it now more important than ever before to value locally created products and collections?
