LOCAL furniture retailer HB and Co is leading the way for style within homes.

The boutique furniture store not only offers an interior styling service, but also hosted acclaimed furniture designer David Hardwick last week.

The Australian designer has developed three collections for HB and Co, along with countless lines for furniture brands and retailers internationally.

David's latest collection, Plank, was "idea-driven". "I just tried to keep it simple and honest," he explained.

HB and Co owner Ian MacFarlane said their search for great quality and stylish furniture led them to David two years ago on the internet.

Ian said they commissioned David to ensure their products were relevant to the lifestyles of Central Queenslanders and were also attractive and functional.

David joked Ian had taken a "bit of a punt on him".

"There's not many retailers willing to invest money into design," David said. "It's been a great experience."

During the VIP night held last week, David offered some tips on furniture styling and interior design.

He gave some colour ideas and encouraged people to measure their space to organise rooms to be peaceful areas.
