  • TSAR Carpets Showroom 250 High Street Windsor, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

Exploring the intricate relationship between designer + supplier, and how we can push each other's craft in creating improved design solutions.

Uncovering different perspectives from expert designers and suppliers on fulfilling working relationships. We will be discussing how both parties are an extension of each other's business and can benefit from collaborative knowledge.
