Life Instyle is set to start on July 31 and in today's post I'm giving you a look-in on three amazing exhibitors this event has to offer. Creative masterminds in their own right, these brands make products that are set to transform your home (and style) for the better. Let's take a closer look!

Designer, writer, speaker, The Block judge; it's safe to say that local Creative Darren Palmer has his finger in many (stylish) pies. In my interview segment, The Creative 10, I've thrown 10 creative questions his way so we can learn more about this industry heavyweight, what makes him tick and where he draws inspiration from!

You know, I'd never really given much thought to whether or not replica furniture was ethical from a design perspective. As a boy on a budget in my early twenties, I'd nab the cheapest furniture I could find that made my home look nice, with no regard at all for its origin.

Clickon Furniture - Orange Couch and ArtYou can never have too much of a good thing I always say, which is why I simply had to pull into the Clickon Furniture showroom in Rosebery last week for another look around (I toured there last year). What I uncovered was nothing short of stunning; new stock, old faves and some left-of-centre moments.

Vamp Retro Furniture - Oz Design - The Life CreativeTurns out I was on the money when I predicted that orange and grey were the undeniable colour couple for Autumn. Get a load of how good they're working together in this room! Enough of that, though; this post is all about the glorious retro furniture pieces that are capturing my attention in this pic.

Federation Buffet from Oz DesignI’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m smitten with Oz Design; I’ve featured their glorious homewares on the blog before. As Autumn hits, though, it’s all about the furniture. And the better news, dear Creatives: they’re celebrating 35 years in the industry by giving away a divine Chandon armchair!

Marimekko TablewareIn my recent appearance in Real Living mag (check out the spread here), I mentioned that I would love to spend time with the design team at Marimekko. I thought it high time, then, that I show you some of their work in case you weren't familiar with the Finnish design powerhouse.
