The wait is over.

The Waiting Room has arrived in Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct and if you don't know what you want for Christmas, you’ll soon find out. 

The new space features apparel and accessories sourced from Scandinavian, European, American and local brands like Céline, Eton, Hope, Kaibosh, Dr Denim, Georgia Perry and Royal Republiq.

The Barangaroo space is fourth in line to existing stores in Sydney and Melbourne. Its philosophy is to create a connection between the product and the consumer, in much the same way that its handcrafted goods are linked to their makers. 

While shopping from the comfort of home seems appealing, The Waiting Room’s marble mosaic floor, timber fixtures and brass fittings will have you wanting to move in.
