Our philosophy is about making high-quality, luxury furniture and homewares affordable. It’s also about curating collections that offer a uniquely stylish difference. Taking inspiration from global trends, our in-house design team puts a contemporary take on the classic pieces we know you’ll love...
Partnering with international design houses to bring our ideas to life, we go beyond the traditional model to give our customers direct access to our exclusive ranges. And because we keep our most popular items in our Adelaide warehouse, we can deliver fast to wherever you are in Australia.
When owner Tim Bowring returned to his hometown after a 10-year stint in London to take over Tim’s mother’s small homewares shop, he had no idea of what he was on the verge of creating. In just over five years, Living By Design evolved to comprise five renowned destination lifestyle stores in some of South Australia’s most picturesque locations. The online store launched in early 2018 has become hugely popular, now a firm favourite for retail, corporate and hospitality clients right throughout Australia.
At Living By Design, our exclusive furniture ranges are designed to create a timeless feel, and are made with high-quality materials to stand the test of time. Sourced from global destinations including Europe, Denmark, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan and Australia, our collections are always changing in line with the seasons and the latest trends.
All linked by our signature style and an enduring appeal, the collections encourage you to mix different products together to create a relaxed and harmonious look. A city apartment, harbour-side house, rural retreat or beachside resort, Living By Design has the perfect style at the perfect price.
Our furniture lines bring together a beautiful range of materials, including pale, natural and cleanly painted timbers, polished concrete, galvanised zinc, granite and stoneware, as well as gorgeous natural textiles such as wicker, leather, linen and wool.
An extensive homewares offering includes everything from Danish glassware, copper cookware, hand-woven rugs and throws, a stunning array of designer cushions, to all those little decorative touches that complete your interior. Our large and ever-popular collection of bold and elegant Marimekko homewares ranges from bed sheets and bath towels through to coffee mugs, platters and scatter cushions.
