Introducing our Sydney flagship store
We’re excited to open our flagship Sydney showroom, and first Australian retail store, on Chalmers Street in the vibrant design district of Surry Hills.
“We wanted to create a sensory spatial environment that represents the Armadillo & Co of today and the future, at the forefront of contemporary design.”
The unveiling of the 385 square metre gallery-esque space is a milestone that coincides with the brand’s 10-year anniversary. As co-founder Sally Pottharst observes, “We wanted to create a sensory spatial environment that represents the Armadillo & Co of today and the future, at the forefront of contemporary design.”
Architect David Goss referenced the strong textural forms of Le Corbusier’s Chandigarh with materials such as poured concrete, glazed terracotta tiles, FSC-certified oak timber and solid brass fixtures. These quiet yet tactile surfaces harness the ephemeral quality of the natural light streaming through the six-metre tall shopfront windows and amplify the refined materiality of our full range of rugs.
According to co-founder Jodie Fried, “The interior is at once soothingly intimate and undeniably luxurious, a true reflection of our brand’s design philosophy and application that invites visitors to immerse themselves in this refuge from the outside world.”
As Goss concludes, “The effortless collaborative process we experienced is evident in the sense of calm and balance in how the space has come together.”
