About Chic Living
The idea chicliving.com.au was initially born out of the collective realisation of Danny and I, that our homes are a tangible expression of who we are. When we moved out to the inner west of Sydney over 5 years ago, we struggled to find home decor that expressed who we were. We scoured through many high end boutique stores, large department stores (including target), and that one store which Danny shudders at every time he walks, drives or even thinks about… Ikea.
We thought that there had to be a better way, so instead of driving around trying to find those pieces that represented us, we let our fingers do the exploring. We’ve spent countless hours, looking online for the most on-trend and current styles that were the highest quality, and started buying our homewares online.
We often received compliments for how we had styled our home and were often the go-to people proving home decor advice. We often found ourselves buying similar pieces from those reliable suppliers, and over the course of many years identified those that were quality, and those that were not.
Then one day, the penny dropped… I looked at Danny and thought, “he’s a nerd, he could set up a online store that provided others the opportunity to buy the same high quality products as we have” and then that idea was brought to life in the form of this online shop
