The internet has democratised so many aspects of our life - including the ability to own and run a shop. Think Etsy and Bigcartel to name just two easy ways. But there's still nothing quite like seeing and touching products. You get a real sense of someone's vision for how they see their brand and how they want you to experience it too.
When you have an artist, graphic designer and stylist bring a shop together, you know you're going to be in for a treat. And that's exactly what The Living Room Pop-Up Store is. I had to share these images taken by Sam McAdam that were taken in the calm leading up to the shop's opening.
If you love interiors, design, supporting Australian designers - or just want some beautiful Christmas presents - and live in Sydney then you really should check it out. (It's only open for ONE WEEK - until 5 December so be quick.)
Failing that, you can visit the websites of the brands participating and order online. It's a different experience. But it has its benefits too!
