Australian Design - King's of Contemporary!

Australia: When asked, about their Indigenous Style? 
It's sometimes a head scratcher to many people.  Some might mention
the Incredible Aboriginal Art - but trail off soon after that.
 Well let me tell you - 
Australians are the Kings of Contemporary.
This is a Country where Design is all about Clean, Modern,
Sporty and Fun. They are Masters at Bold, and at Bringing the Outside in. 
So though, it might be a touch cliche,
Why not click on to a little "Down Under", and begin the
scroll down to see just what makes Australian Style so Amazing!
