A partnership initiative of the DIA and Artichoke magazine, these awards recognise and celebrate interior design excellence via a credible, industry-based program.

Celebrating its 16th anniversary this year, the 2019 Australian Interior Design Awards boasts a stellar line-up of the country’s very best interior design projects. Maintaining the high standards the awards are known for, this year’s entries exhibit a fearless design approach that pushes boundaries to reinvent typologies, experiment with spatial planning and innovate to improve the user experience.

On Friday 31 May, the annual Australian Interior Design Awards were presented at a gala celebration in Melbourne, with 550 of Australia’s most esteemed interior design and architecture practitioners and professionals in attendance.
