About Local Design

A curated online hub to find uniquely designed interior products, opinions and ideas by creative professionals within the Australian design scene. LOCAL DESIGN is a platform for local designers by local designers, providing a unified voice, a marketplace and network for anyone to access. From shopping for a product, to sourcing a creative for a specific project, LOCAL DESIGN is a site that caters to all your design-conscious needs online and offline.

This site supports the desire to focus on supporting local suppliers and designers. With a vision to create a level of market exposure to allow local designers to competitively sell high quality original designs. In time hopefully steering the general public away from a replica market that has a stranglehold on the interiors/furniture market.

It’s time for designers to fight back, we need to think global and buy local, allowing local professionals to showcase their talents across an ever evolving global online and offline designer landscape.

With over a decade of experience in the creative industries both here in Australia and overseas, designer and stylist Emma Elizabeth has identified a need in the market for this type of platform and joined forces in January 2015 with her entrepreneurial brother James Coffey to form this online community.

We have high aspirations for LOCAL DESIGN to connect creative talent with brands, expand Australian designed production/export and to create a global community that inspires and supports the growth of the design industry.

We would love for you all to please join us on our designer journey………………..
