Building on our history of working together on custom furniture pieces for some of Australia’s best interiors, our studio has teamed with Grazia & Co to launch a signature range of tables, called Stamp. Inspired by the stamps used to heavily emboss paper, the range is about simplicity of form, with the coffee, side and console tables adding a sculptural element to any room.  The collection was launched this week and can be viewed online at http://graziaandco.com.au




Mim Design principal Miriam Fanning recently provided Bronwyn Wilkie from realestate.com.au with a valuable insight into how Australia’s leading designers create a premium project. Bronwyn used the studio’s stunning MAH Residence, which has been shortlisted in the Residential Decoration category of the Australian Interior Design Awards (AIDAs), as an example. Authenticity, the use of natural products and simplicity are some of the fundamental features of any luxurious and sophisticated design.
