Shown here are two gold chrome ‘Michelles’ ready for their close-up, but if that kind of luxury escapes you, why not go for the more contemporary natural-ash version in a black frame for your living area? Aside from the range’s singular style, it’s ideal for counterbalancing the rectangles in traditionally shaped rooms. Michelle stool, $835, and chair, $1350, from Space; spacefurniture.com.au…

“Seeing the design standards in this selection of extraordinary homes across the country has been hugely inspiring”ELIZA O’HARE, INSIDE OUT EDITOR Stay tuned next month for the big reveal of our first ever Inside Out/Brickworks Home Of The Year Award winners, which will be announced during an intimate dinner at Brickworks Design Studio in Sydney.

Why did you decide to make the move from the beaches of the NSW south coast to the desert of the Northern Territory? I was obsessed with the work of the Hermannsburg Potters, so I just went out there: I was like, I have to go, and I ended up staying.
