Curated By Tom is dedicated to enhancing local access to leading design brands, many of which have been traditionally concentrated on the east coast. This initiative aims to enrich the local design landscape by sourcing and introducing brands specifically requested by South Australian designers.

“Seeing such a strong turnout and enthusiastic participation from our community really underscores the talent and dedication within the South Australian design industry,” says Curated By Tom founder Tom Anderson. 

“Our goal is to ensure our designers have the support and resources they need to thrive, and we are excited to play a role in that by bringing more top-tier brands into our market.”
