Share Canberra's trusted news:

INNOVATIVE retail designer, David Hicks, has created  King Furniture’s new Canberra store, which opens in 21 Quilpie Crescent, Fyshwick,  on Saturday.

Hicks, pictured, one of Australia’s leading interior designers, says: “We wanted to reflect the design, craftsmanship and beauty of King Furniture’s collections in the creation of the new showroom in Canberra.

“It was our aim to bring in the individualism and unique sensibility that King Furniture is known for, and to portray comfort, quality and excellence.”

Hicks has also designed King Furniture’s newest showrooms including Moore Park in Sydney and the first Adelaide showroom, which opened earlier this year in Keswick.

The new showroom is twice the size of the original Canberra premises with access to more than 20 sofa designs, as well as sofa beds, armchairs, outdoor settings, tables, storage, lamps and accessories.

“Local shoppers will have a greater opportunity to view our extensive collection and experience the many ways our sofa designs can be reconfigured and displayed, thanks to the increased space and layout of the new showroom,” said general manager Renata Bayer-Volf.
