Presented by Houses magazine, the Houses Awards is an annual program celebrating Australia’s best residential projects. Excellence is rewarded in nine categories, with the best house receiving the premier award of Australian House of the Year, a category that has been proudly sponsored by Cult 9 years running.

Known for impeccably designed kitchen, bathroom, bin and accessory collections, renowned Danish design brand VIPP has launched its most comprehensive product collection since 1939 – a full range of furniture, accessories and soft furnishings comprising sofas, chairs, tables, pillows, blankets, rugs and homewares.
Danish design brand VIPP is rooted in the manufacture of industrial objects, favouring function over form with a distinct minimalist and timeless aesthetic. Famous for its iconic steel-cylinder pedal bins originally designed for a hair salon in the 1930s, VIPP now offer a complete range of furniture, homewares and soft-furnishings in addition to industrial-purist kitchen and bathroom concepts, lighting and accessories.
With a strong belief in fewer but better products, VIPP continues to choose timelessness over trends through its new collection for the home.
At DENFAIR 2019, our Australian design brand, NAU, launched NAU 2019, the newest collection of furniture and lighting by a collective of Australia’s most talented and spirited designers.
