Teeny-tiny in size (less than one square kilometre!), Chippendale is an oft-overlooked neighbourhood when thinking of ways to spend a day in Sydney – but it packs a lot of punch. With so much recent development around the area, this tiny pocket of leafy streets, trendy eateries and cutting-edge galleries is fast becoming a hot spot to while away a Saturday.
One of the best showrooms in Sydney for designer furniture is Cult. Home to brands such as Hay, Gubi, Republic of Fritz Hansen, Carl Hansen + Son and Design Letters, visit Cult to dream about your ‘one day’ house that you’ll fill with classic, beautiful pieces of furniture. If a trip to Europe for some home inspiration isn’t on the cards, a visit to Cult will scratch the itch nicely. Keep an eye out for their occasional warehouse sales too, where you can snap up ex-display and in-stock pieces for a lot less than they normally retail for.
