Space to Create...
We have all been lusting over the gorgeous furniture at Space to Create for a long time now... and I was lucky enough to chat to the brains and beauties behind the brand to find out where they draw their inspiration and how they run such an on trend design company...
Tell us a bit about Space to Create?
At Space to Create we are all about furniture that is high quality and well designed – our aim is to create pieces that provide that perfect touch of style and individuality to any room.Online thinking is at the core of our company, with the online store being our main distribution channel and warehouse being situated in North Melbourne, Victoria.
Why did you start Space to Create?
We’ve been in the furniture business for just under 10 years, first starting in the event hire business through STC’s sister company Dann Event Hire. Our aim was to always provide unique hiring solutions to our clients, continually scouring the globe for that perfect product to add to our ever-expanding collection. With this knowledge and constant questioning of “why don’t you sell your products”, we decided to bite the bullet and launch Space to Create in 2013.
Do you have a favourite piece of furniture so far?
We really love our Arrow Side Table because it is so versatile - it can be used as a low stool, side table or even a bed side table. However we are getting particularly excited about the new pieces which will appear on our website very soon… stay tuned!
What has been the best moment so far for the business?
Probably a dead heat between appearing in Inside Out magazine and the day spent styling our first range look book with Jacqui Moore and Julia Green from Greenhouse Interiors. It really is amazing to work with such amazing people who are so incredibly talented - we love those shots, and can’t wait to embark on the next look book.
Who, what, or where do you look for inspiration?
All over really. From Pinterest, to blogs to new cafes and boutiques that seem to be popping up all over Melbourne. We try to be very open minded to what inspires us!
