Get The Look: The 2019 Interior Designer Awards

The 2019 Australian Interior Design Awards shortlist has been recently announced and interior design trends and styles are back in the spotlight. The celebration of Australia’s best designers is in full swing with retail, workplace, hospitality and residential design at the forefront of these shortlist nominees.

Within your own home or business, you don’t have to sacrifice bucket loads of cash to get your own slice of designer style. Not only is it more than achievable the designer look, but there is genuine satisfaction found in DIY interior design.

We will take you through some of the best Design Award shortlist nominees to show how you can get a designer lighting look, without paying over the top designer prices.


Retail Design


Whether you are selling high-end fashion or boutique kitchen appliances, using complementary lighting will enhance a retail space. Designer styled light fixtures coupled with interior furnishings will establish brand personality and leave a lasting impression on your customers.

The moody architecture within the StylecraftHOME showroom in Melbourne would not be nearly as effective if not for the interior lighting. Designed by HASSELL, the appeal of this space is showcased excellently with pillar wall lights that shape the impressive archways. Our Pillar Wall Lights are sleek in design and can help you achieve a similar modern wall light look. They can also be used as outdoor lighting so are perfect for illuminating retail store signage or shop entryways.


Workplace Design


Workplace lighting has become a popular staple point for interior designers. Offices and workplaces are being closely looked at in the way they function and make an employees, guests or visitors feel comfortable. This is achieved through strategic design and boosted by a spaces lighting.

Designed by Cox Architecture, the Cardno APAC North Headquarters has been transformed to boost productivity and comfort through its new interior redesign. This has been achieved through wooden furniture, comforting colour palettes and abundant plant life. Glass Ball Pendant Lights can inject a dose of vintage charm, and when paired with brighter bulbs, can add a cleaner and more natural soft light into a work space.

Hospitality Design


Lighting is an essential component when designing a bar, restaurant or café. It sets the mood and vibe of your business, determines a customer experience and can direct customers throughout a space.

Techne Architecture and Interior Design reshaped the Veneziano Café to encourage open space interactions with customers. The open-air location is fitted with concrete walls that have been finished with our designer wall lights, found only here at Fat Shack Vintage. The Bunker Tube Wall Light oozes industrial flair and gives the Veneziano Café a modern-luxe feel and style.

Residential Design


Home is where the heart is and putting your heart into home interior design does not have to mean parting ways with all your money. Impressions last, and creating a stylish homely atmosphere in your residence can be achieved in simple ways

The Villa, by modern design studio LAHAUS, is a combination of modern and industrial styles. Modern lighting does not mean compromising on character and style. Using a manoeuvring wall lamp, like our Brasserie Two Arm Swing Wall Lamp, not only looks great for your bedroom interior design, but is very functional as a bedside table light. Getting the designer look isn’t limited to your interior decoration. Adding a welcome light to your home is the perfect way to greet a guest or visitor, particularly using a weather resistant light like our Vintage Goosneck Wall Light.

The Award winners will be announced on the 31st of May 2019. Be sure to check out the above mentioned shortlist nominees below.
