Boasting an impressive 11,000 square feet, clients can preview unique, handcrafted modular sofa and dining designs with the latest integrated technologies from the contemporary Australian design house. An extra 3,000 square feet on the second floor provides a stage for King Living’s extended outdoor furniture, bedding range and full home theatre experience with integrated Sonos for the ultimate viewing experience. As visitors explore the new space, guided upstairs through the spiral staircase, sensors trigger a state of the art projector screening a 4m x 2.5m image of King Living’s latest marketing reels.

The unveiling of the new Showroom coincides with 40 years of design, innovation, and international success. Since King Living was established in 1977 from humble beginnings at Sydney’s weekend markets, company founder David King and King Living’s team of in-house designers, have always strived for the best design solution; spending hours on research and development, and in doing so achieving major milestones for Australian industrial design.
