Earp Bros had a lot to celebrate on the eve of April 27 at their highly anticipated White on White showroom launch. Not only has the family-owned company now been in business for 135 years, they have just opened one of the most stunning showrooms we have ever seen. (And boy have we seen a lot of showrooms!)

With the who’s-who of Australia’s A+D community putting on their Sunday best and heading out to check out the new space, hundreds were treated to fine wines, the most delicious canapés (and, we all know a good amuse-bouche when we come across one!) and the exclusive opportunity to check out the latest stone and surface products direct from the top-tier quarries of Europe.

Located in the increasingly trendy suburb of Alexandria, the new Sydney Flagship showroom is a feast for the senses – grand, bold, edgy and beautiful all at once. The nine metre ceilings and formerly-rusty industrial columns in this vast art gallery-style space have been bathed in white, creating a clean and ethereal backdrop to further illuminate the magnificent range of colours, tones and textural surfaces from around the globe.

Designed by Sydney architectural firm Villa + Villa, the team – spearheaded by owners Eduardo and Maria Villa, have done a truly amazing job; realising the challenge of showcasing over 1000 varieties of product by creating sectional display pods, which ensure that each object category receives the focus it deserves.
