Jason Grant's Ultimate Guide to Homewares Shopping in Sydney
I’m always on the hunt for new stores, be it at home in Sydney, or when I travel—and one of the best parts of being an interior stylist and designer is visiting my favourite shops and showrooms. I love the unique personalities of these stores and also interacting with the owners and their staff, as well as creating ongoing relationships—some stores and store owners I have known for a long time! It really is the best way to keep up to date with the latest products for all of my different projects—residential clients, commercial projects, or editorial or advertising shoots.
There are plenty of these stores to choose from as Sydney is full of unique one-of-a-kind retail shopping experiences that I love to share on my blog and Instagram. Read on for my ultimate favourites—I’ll be sure to update you in the future with any additions!
