AIFF, previously co-located with Decor + Design Show, have combined in 2017 to offer the ultimate furniture and interior exhibition that showcases the best interior furnishings Australia has to offer. The exhibition is brimming with inspiration for interior designers and decorators with stalls from over 250 contemporary artists, professional designers and leading retailers.


Breaking the moulds of what a trade show should be, it’s not all about buying. It’s clear that the collaboration is eager to offer exciting features that foster growth within the industry and create genuine platforms for designers to advance their careers. Here’s just a couple of the attractions we’ll be seeing this year:

Vivid – A key highlight of the exhibition and Australia’s longest running competition for emerging designers; a free to enter design competition in its 14th year. Vivid is a fantastic opportunity for up and coming designers such as design students or those who have been in the industry for less than five years to gain valuable exposure and meet with industry professionals.


AIFF Loves Homemade – After its success in 2016, AIFF will again be dedicating an area for Australian makers of furniture, cabinetry and joinery.


Design Laneway & Wall St – A collection of exhibitors including artists, textile designers and independent studios creating micro production runs with original designs.
