Book an Appointment at Byzantine Design
Our new appointment system is respectful of your time and of ours, allowing us to give you our full attention and help you
with your tile and project needs with minimal distraction.
We found that previously, the flow of customers to our showroom was unpredictable, and often resulted in more people here at
once than we are able to attend to. Our new system fixes this issue, and also facilitates social distancing, due to less people being in the showroom at one time.
Please note that due to the ongoing COVID situation we may have to reschedule appointments or switch them to another team
member last minute if one of our staff members has to isolate.
Dara is the founder and “TileEO” of Byzantine Design. Dara has 20+ years of tile experience. Dara is good to talk to when you want someone to tell you how it is in a direct manner, whilst staying true to your vision for your project and your goals. She speaks fluent Pinterest so bringing in a board with a vision will get you far in communicating what you’re looking for in your tiles. Dara believes that pineapple does belong on pizza and that leopard print can be classified as a neutral. She also thinks that animals are the best people and everyone should definitely bring their dogs into Byzantine Design when they visit (it’s a dog friendly showroom so feel free).
Dara thinks that swearing is a mark of intelligence; stickers do not belong on fruit; reality TV is ruining society and peppermint tea can cure a lot of ailments. She prefers conversation over texting and can’t read graphs.
Dara’s colleagues think that she is an encyclopedia of random information that is both relevant and irrelevant, and Laura wonders why Dara has enough time to even consider the stickers on fruit.
TLDR: Dara is committed to helping you find the most suited tiles for your project in an efficient manner.
Dara is available Monday, Wednesday & Friday
Laura is the sales and design consultant at Byzantine Design. Laura also has 20+ years of tile experience. Laura is great at helping you consider the strengths and weaknesses of different tile options and suggesting alternatives that you maybe hadn’t thought of. Laura also responds well to pinterest boards and any other photos you have of your dream room that she can adapt to fit your blank canvas.
Laura is a Richmond Tigers supporter and if she had it her way she would definitely turn the shop into a doggy daycare. She likes coffee, and if a song was to play when she walked into the room, it would be “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor. Although Laura was in denial about her previous eyesight problems,
she now wears glasses so that she can give you the best tile advice (although we did have a moment there). Dara thinks that Laura purposely rips the tape gun loudly in her ear when processing tile sample orders to annoy her.
TLDR: Laura is great at helping you make decisions or choose between options.
Laura is available Monday-Thursday and on Saturday
Robyn is our newest Sales and Design Consultant at Byzantine Design, she comes to us with over 20 years experience. Recently she has been exploring her creative side by studying drawing, painting and sculpture. Some of her murals can be seen around Melbourne (all council approved, of course).
Who remembers Zucchini slice? Well, Robyn has reintroduced this delightful dish back to our repertoire. She has a penchant for earrings, she even used to have a side hustle making them and selling them at the Rose St Markets a while ago.
She's first on the dancefloor at an event and her laugh can be heard up and down High St.
Robyn is also the most colourful of us all.
Robyn is available Tuesday and Thursday
Thank you for understanding.
