Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to episode 9 of dealing in design

I have canned the usual intro because this week we have a lonnnggg episode but don’t let that turn you off, let get right into it.

I really hope you enjoyed lasts weeks episode with Eric Appel from New York.

This week we are in Sydney, at Vampt Vintage with David Beeman.

David is a force of nature, he is charming and charismatic, and he has the insane ability to draw you into his world. He is always full of energy around the clock, he is the guy you can shoot messages or call anytime and no matter what he gets back to you instantly.

Initially we were going to interview both Dave and Maxine Beeman but plans changed and that all good but David really wanted Maxine to be involved because they have done everything together from the start 17 years ago. So I just wanted to point out and make it clear that we are only sitting down with one half of the Vampt Vintage founders and Im so thankful for their time and hospitality

In this interview we also chat all things interior styling with Vampt Vintage super stylist and Milkman ambassador Brendan Clark. Check him out at BJC_creative on the gram.

We also have a round the table chat with Joe Mifsood who has been a prolific dealer in Sydney since the 1980s

He was a dealer to the dealers and He is known as the man who can find you anything.

Super interesting and super insightful. Check him out at Mifsud_J on the Gram that’s MITSUD_J

Alright back to Dave and Vampt Vintage.

We recorded this in their mind-blowing showroom on Elizabeth St Surrey Hills and it was pumping. People everywhere! It was great to see! So don’t be alarmed if you hear some footsteps or chairs being pushed and pulled around by customers in the background.

That’s the Vampt Vintage Vibe, the shop has a super cool feel and such a welcoming culture.

Without further ado I hope you enjoy the wide ranging conversation with David Beeman, Joe Mitsud and Brendan Clark.

Ok that’s it. Enjoy

Yep, our guest this week is Piero Paolo Gesualdi from Mondopiero in Brunswick Street Fitzroy. Take one step through the double doors of this double story building and you are submerged in a mix of design and detail. Make no mistake you have set foot into Piero's World, and it does not disappoint!

Mondopiero evokes the surroundings of a lifetime dedicated to the appreciation and creation of beautiful things; showcasing craftsmanship, artisanal skill, design and the whisper of a refined sense of taste.

I can't think of anyone else in the Melbourne design scene as interesting as Piero. He has done it all, from owning restaurants and clubs to importing and owning fashion labels, not to mention he is an architect! He really is an entrepreneur, a super stylish Italian entrepreneur!

In this wide-ranging conversation, Piero explains why he left architecture at RMIT to go to India and we find out how Piero managed to be the first person to introduce cutting-edge international luxury fashion labels such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, Kenzo and Comme de Garçons into the Australian market.
