OUR FAVOURITE THINGS FROM THE GUIDE 2016 PRODUCT AND INTERIOR DESIGN EXPO

Last Friday saw the close of the Guide 2016 Product and Interior Design Expo.

A vast array of products, accessories and more were on full display from a diverse group of exhibitors, many of whom stayed true to the theme of being home grown and inspired.

There was a lot to see and take in, learn from and be inspired by. To that end we had an extensive tour of the 3 day event to get a good look at what was on offer.

Here’s a gallery of some of our favourites items as well as who made or stocks them.

Enjoy and be inspired.
