November 13th, 2018
The new Earp Bros showroom in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley has been launched on the momentous 135-year anniversary of the tile, stone and hard surfaces brand’s history. And a great space deserves a great opening party, which is how the new showroom was officially christened.
Alive with activity, the space was filled with some of Brisbane’s finest architects and interior designers, as well as some dedicate design lovers who travelled from further afield. The evening was a resounding success and a celebration of just why the company has been a go-to in the world of surface design for 135 years.
Earp Bros extends a sincere thank you to their dedicated clients and design supporters, and we all at IndesignLive extend hearty cheers to the Earp Bros team and congratulate them on their exciting new space. We can’t wait to see what great new projects come from the new showroom.
