AT HOME is the wonderful end result of many months of negotiations with designers, collectors and cultural institutions to borrow a large number of significant contemporary Australian works of design, chosen to compliment and sometimes disrupt the highly regarded Georgian furniture collection that normally lives within the walls of Old Government House.

AT HOME encourages visitors to take another look at colonial era antiques and observe their craftsmanship and integrity. It allows visitors to re-engage with many important contemporary design pieces while showing them in a surprising new context.
