About Us


OPUS was launched in 1968 with the simple dream of sharing joy through gifting. Fast forward fifty years and that humble hope is still at the core of what we do, but with a new era has come a new passion for brighter ideas and broader horizons. Today we have two locations, a fabulous online store and a family of more than 30 staff. The business is still owned by the Tourgelis Family and OPUS is still 100% Australian owned. OPUS also won the prestigious Global Innovators Award (GIA). The OPUS team recently visited Chicago to receive the Award and we are now proudly recognised as one of the very best Gifts and Homeware stores in the world.

Where to next? It’s hard to say but one thing’s for sure, OPUS is still growing and we are ready to meet the future with energy and a fierce determination to be at the leading edge of retail in Australia.

Lots of Love,

Chris Tourgelis and Family

Welcome to OPUS Town


OPUS was established in 1968 in the Sydney Suburb of Paddington and is renowned for having an eclectic, fun and ever-changing range of the coolest products from all over the world (and probably the greatest greeting card range you have ever seen). Our new 2 level store in the heart of Paddington is truly on an international level and gives OPUS 
the space it needs to show off its special range of products. If you are looking for a gift or home accessory that is truly extraordinary you simply must visit OPUS when you are next in Sydney!


ODC is our sophisticated and stylish sister store! It can be described as a more intimate and luxurious store that caters for style lovers. ODC features a beautiful range of furniture, art, soft furnishings, fashion and children’s accessories in a space that is incredibly airy and full of visual fascination (upstairs in the OPUS building in Paddington).


Our Media Team is responsible for a great deal of the creativity that is buzzing around the building! From updating our fabulous website, to creating newsletters, catalogues, and social media content – they certainly are a busy bunch! To contact our team please email them any time: media@opusdesign.com.au


Octopus is a cheeky version of OPUS in Newtown, Sydney. Octopus is brash, fun, confident and very bold! It features a young and cool range of cards, gifts and homeware and the store is always changing. Octopus is a must-see when you are next in Newtown and is also pet-friendly!
