Late November saw the unveiling and launch of Harbour Outdoor’s all-new flagship showroom in Sydney’s Waterloo – and the design community was there to celebrate
December 15th, 2017
Outdoor furniture brand Harbour Outdoor has officially opened the doors on its flagship Waterloo showroom, showcasing the range of products that have made the brand synonymous with great design.
With over 100 enthusiastic architecture and design professionals in attendance, the launch event saw the lucky crowd treated to a preview of the summer collections, including Hayman, Hamilton and Balmain ranges, and celebrating the Condos family business in general, which had been handcrafting furniture in Australia since 1976.
During the festivities, founders and owners, Harriet and Jim Condos took the opportunity to introduce the newly appointed Australian showroom team, including Showroom and Sales Manager, Patryc Lampasi and Design and Sales Consultant, Matthew Shanahan.
On display and now available were a collection of outdoor furniture ranges, named after prominent beach and harbour locations across the country and abroad, specifically designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate. The harbour and coastal imagery continues with beautiful, scene setting wall photography from Phillip Thurston of Thurston Photo.
The event perfectly reflected Harbour Outdoor’s family legacy, with guests feeling like they were part of a big, yet close-knit, family gathering. Harbour Outdoor impressed with sprawling savoury and dessert displays, champagne and wine, catered by Elegancy Catering, and ongoing music throughout the evening, reminiscent of a summer cocktail party by the harbour.
Harbour Outdoor’s brand new store is located at No. 3, 1037 – 1047 Bourke St (entry via George St), Waterloo. The showroom is open seven days a week to retail and trade.
