Already a go-to for fashion and beauty and showcasing designer homewares brands Gubi, Hay, Vitra, Dinosaur Designs, Great Dane, Menu and Tom Dixon, select locations of David Jones’ 46 bricks and mortar stores and online platform will now offer an impressive stable of Australian furniture and lighting brands through the contemporary design brand. Founded by Richard Munao – founder and director of Cult NAU as a portfolio of 35+ of the best international furniture and lighting brands, such as Fritz Hansen, Louis Poulsen, HAY and Poltrona Frau.
“As a brand that is dedicated to Australian creativity, authentic design and creating quality, timeless products, a partnership between NAU and David Jones seemed a natural fit.”Richard Munao, Founder of NAU
Flagship stores Market Street, Sydney and Bourke Street Mall Menswear Building in Melbourne are currently playing host to sofas, armchairs, dining furniture and lighting – from Australia’s leading designers, including Adam Goodrum, Tom Fereday, Kate Stokes, Adam Cornish, Jack Flanagan and Gavin Harris. More stores will carry these ranges going forward.
Expect to see simple, elegant designs and thoughtful use of materials – natural timbers, quality fabrics and enduring shapes that perfectly fit the Australian home and lifestyle. Streamlined and stackable, the ‘Strand’ chair by Adam Cornish and the ‘Sia’ dining chairs by Tom Fereday are lessons in practical, elegant design. Adam Goodrum’s ‘Fat Tulip’ armchair is stunning, comfortable and perfectly proportioned. Also by Adam Goodrum, the ‘Bilgola’ armchair and sofa are a lovely take on classic living room furniture – a light, lean silhouette, pale timbers and contemporary coral-toned comfort.
“We’re delighted that Australian design now has a platform within the country’s most iconic retailer, and that David Jones customers have access to exceptional pieces by Australia’s most talented and spirited designers,” said Richard Munao at the unveiling.
