Since 2001 top3 by Design has fostered design, not stolen it, to ensure the brand has grown as purveyors of authentic design with parameters of innovation, style and quality. Terri says top3 by Design has sought to take the snobbery out of design even though they stock some of the finest and most respected brands in the world.


“It’s about editing options not limited choices,” she says. “We stock up to three products per category and that’s not by brand or price alone; it’s by the merit of design and quality, and authenticity”

The new top3 By Design showroom has been set up to maximise integration with the products. As all top3 by Design staff are passionate about design, they love discussing the products and their merits with visitors seeking solutions for their home. Terri Winter oversaw the design and fit-out of the new space, which is very contemporary. Mondrian inspired white cabinetry, steel tubs and linear steel shelves allow visitors to see larger design pieces, the showcase furniture and small collectables in a ‘living context’.
