After 18 years in the fashion industry, dynamic mother daughter duo Robyn and Rachel Gilmour are embracing a new business venture in homewares opening Living on Fourth Avenue in Sandgate.

Aiming to differentiate themselves, the bubbly pair are set to stir the pot in Brisbane’s homewares market. They have sourced quality homewares from trade fairs in Sydney and Melbourne as well as items imported from all corners of the world including the US, France and South Africa.

The store boasts an extensive collection of on-trend interiors across a range of styles from French Provincial to rustic furnishings, guaranteeing nothing run of the mill! From big ticket furniture items to the perfect gift for any occasion, from Christmas to birthdays, Living on Fourth Avenue offers a diverse range of stock to cater to more than just completing your home interiors.
