Congratulations on celebrating Didier’s 20th anniversary this year. What achievement are you most proud of to date?
Ross Didier: Thank you, and it’s a fascinating adventure, but the future starts every day, so I don’t reminisce too much. What’s most important is today.
I’m proud the Didier brand has become a small but mighty player in Australian furniture design, and our pieces have sold around the world. We are independent and creatively direct our own path, so as we become more confident, it means pushing our ideas further. It can take a long time to design with a genuine voice, so I’m proud that we’ve been patient and smart.
In light of this milestone, what do you see for the future of Didier?
Ross Didier: It’s great to be on this sensational journey, and I want to experience, share, and live in the present, so I don’t plan too far in the future. Each day I wake after dreaming of wonderful new ideas and feel inspired to create beautiful furniture designs. The business keeps growing organically.
