Keep Resin at Life Instyle Sydney 2017 resin flower vases and vessels

The Best Homewares Brands in One Place this February

My favourite time of the year (Christmas aside, because we all know that cannot be beat) is the moment Life Instyle rolls around. There are two moments to celebrate, actually, because Life Instyle Sydney lands in Feb and then the Melbourne event comes later in the year.

If you’re not across what Life Instyle is, you’re truly missing out. This trade event brings the country’s top home and lifestyle brands together to showcase their creations across four glorious days.

You not only get a chance to preview new product lines before the major brands reveal them to the rest of the nation, but you also get to see the up-and-comers in the industry too – before they take the country by storm. That’s my fave part, actually; meeting local creatives – both new and established – and chatting to them about their products.

The Life Instyle Sydney 2017 event is not far off; it hits The Royal Hall of Industries & Hordern Pavilion Feb 16 to 19.
Tickets can be secured here.

If you want a glimpse into my fave brands who’ll be showcasing their products at Life Instyle Sydney 2017, then look no further; I’ve compiled a list of must-see businesses below.
