Venue Hire


World of Style is one of a kind.

A warehouse transformed into a home design and styling hub located in the heart of South Melbourne.

The space pays homage to its industrial past with exposed brick walls, timber beams and concrete floors, but is layered with art gallery inspired installations, plenty of natural light and impeccable styling.

Our mezzanine level looking over our 2,000m² showroom has two venue spaces for hire, ideal for workshops, team meetings, presentations, briefings and product launches.

If you’re looking for an offsite meeting space that isn’t your run of the mill meeting venue, World of Style is the place.
