the apartment collection by jardan

Jardan a one of the leaders in locally made and designed quality furniture, As part of Sydney Indesign, Jardan released their latest collection The Apartment Collection.

The collection has a distinct focus on small footprint living, lets be honest we don’t all have huge homes! also combining an eclectic selection of materials to create inherently unique pieces.

The standout pieces for me are the Rufus Sofa and armchair upholstered in Denim and I LOVE it!

The Apartment Collection is an exploration into modern living, seeking out ways of creating unique, versatile and personal environments within the confines of smaller spaces.

Head in store to one of the Jardan showroom or check out the rest of the collection online
