In this, the penultimate issue of inside for 2017, there is much to enjoy. Indeed, the magazine doubles in size to showcase the shortlisted projects, products and practices for the Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2017.
In this issue, we’re all about marriage. Well, mergers to be precise – be they of small practices joining forces to become bigger ones, or Australian companies joining forces with like-minded outfits in Asia.

There is a lot to see and read in this winter edition of inside 97 and now is the perfect time to enjoy all the design news from home and abroad. So light the fire and pour a glass of red or make a pot of tea because you’re in for the long haul.
