     Throughout 2015

    Our Boyd Blue team has continued to grow over the year, with our incredible team growing across the board in our Showrooms, Head Office and White workroom.


    We held a number of fabulous events in our showrooms with special guests of honour such as the Vice President of Arteriors, Patty Price, the General Manager of Skyline Design, Joseph Atmodjo, and the delightful Gavin & Warren from the Designer Boys.


    Shelley spent a significant part of the year travelling overseas to seek inspiration and develop our Boyd product range. This included attending prestigious trade shows such as High Point Market in Texas and Maison Objet in Singapore.

  • Celebrating our Client's Projects in 2015

    Saturday, December 05, 2015
    2015 has been a phenomenal year for Boyd Blue, but we wouldn't be celebrating these successes without the constant support of our loyal clients.
    Here are a few inspiring projects from our client's in 2015.

    Creating Style – Brisbane Residential Project

    With only a short timeframe, Sally's brief was to transform the dated lounge/dining room into a a classic, contemporary space with an electric twist! 

    Sally sourced beautiful pieces of furniture and soft furnishings for the space from Boyd Blue.

    The high quality craftsmanship of the Boyd Buffet, Coffee Table, Side Table and stunning Mirror added depth and layers to the room to create a very special outcome!

    DF Interiors – Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments

    The brief for Alex Perry's (much celebrated fashion designer) venture into the hotel industry was couture lifestyle meets playful intelligent design.

    Alex Perry was seeking to recreate the glamour of the great hotels of the world, with an elegantly restrained palette setting the backdrop for lush interior styling.

    The high quality, striking pieces from Boyd Blue, such as the Adele Pendant, Simpson Armchair and Lyon Lounger, were a perfect fit for the luxe and glamour of Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments.


    Marina Hirst Interiors – Brisbane Renovation Project

    Loving the Boyd Blue aesthetic and style, the client's brief was for a warm and loving family home that stands the test of time!

    Marina sourced and custom made all furniture, including many pieces from Arteriors, Boyd and White Furniture Design.

    The clients were delighted with the classic and sophisticated result, and were particularly delighted with the finer details.

    Barnes & Barnes Design Collective  - Cub Network

    Forming an alliance of Sydney's most innovative business minds, Cub Network has been developed to accelerate the success of its members in a luxurious business space.

    The brief for the Club Lounge was to create a sophisticated, classic and comfortable space with a contemporary twist.

    The classic contemporary nature of White Furniture Design and Boyd furnishings made them an obvious choice for this project.

    These pieces have provided an opulent feel to the Club Lounge with the utmost comfort for members to relax in and host informal meetings.
