The Australian Made Campaign has announced its supportfor Furnishing in Focus 2013, a series of nationwide exhibitions that display locally made furniture from Australia’s top furniture manufacturers.
The event, which is held throughout May, is presented by leading Australian fabric manufacturer, Warwick Fabrics.
Warwick Fabrics is the first Australian-owned company to receive the Queen’s Award for export achievement and continues to lead the industry in the design, distribution and export of interior upholstery and window covering textiles to over 50 countries.
“The Australian Made Campaign is proud to support an event that exclusively showcases some of Australia’s leading furniture manufacturers,” said Australian Made Chief Executive, Ian Harrison.

The exhibition, which will include both soft and hard furnishings, promises to introduce Australia’s top manufacturers and their locally made furnishings to a broad cross-section of industry visitors.
