Store Overview

dedece is a family owned business operating for more than 30 years. Their primary mission has always been to supply architectural products to the A + D community, meanwhile supporting the industry and nurturing young Australian designers by partnering them up with iconic manufacturers.



Store/Brand Brief

dedece strives on promoting good and long lasting design through the use of local educational talks on international trade fairs, various forms of social media or staging of events from product launches to the release of outdoor collections held right on Sydney harbour, or intimate dinners with Australia’s leading architects celebrating the work of some of our most prominent colleagues.

dedece works with the most well-known manufacturers in interior environments. These include Minotti, Knoll, Paola Lenti, Tom Dixon, Vola tap ware, Kreon lighting, Kettal outdoor and such contemporary traditionalists as Vittoria Bonacina and DePadova.

Our showrooms in Sydney and Melbourne are unquestionably styled to meet the high standards our globalsuppliers reflect.

Store/Brand Innovation / Need

We have been very fortunate to carry some of the world's best manufacturers and present them back to the Australian A + D community. Always striving for the cutting edge, dedece has introduced the mastery of designers such as Tom Dixon and Paola Lenti amongst others to the forefront of Australian outdoor collections.

Retail Challenge

All of the dedece members of staff are trained extensively on their respective products. We constantly train our staff to be able to deliver a level of service to the highest expectation.

Our use of social media is widely recognised. We have a large number of followers on our sites, which are not just used to promote dedece as a supplier, but to encourage interest and education in all facets of good design and lifestyle.

We employ all our staff members on the basis that they are passionate about good design.



We strive to obtain the highest levels of sustainability, working hand in hand with all of our suppliers to achieve the necessary Australian good credentials. To work with such manufacturers as Knoll, who have pushed the boundaries of sustainable product globally, makes the adaptation to the local market a smooth process.

This award recognises the leading retailer of designer products. The award is allocated in three categories based on the number of retail outlets in Australia (Less than 5 stores, 5+ stores). Digital retailers may be included.
