I've had my much-loved industrial coffee table for a while now (I blogged about this bad boy last year when I first got him) and I must say it's been a lengthy love affair. I posted about him on Instagram recently and got a few people asking where I'd scored him from, so I thought I would give you the lowdown on where he was sourced - as well as a good excuse to look at him again and adore his industrial coffee table beauty!
My obsession with cushions is a well documented one (no need for an intervention just yet), so I simply had to share these new releases with you from local business Shakiraaz. Shakira Lima - the talented Melbournite behind the brand - has been labouring away for months on four unique designs, which I'm crushing on like a tween on Beiber and will be showing you today in this colourful post!
I never used to believe in love at first site until I walked into Koskela. Once I was there, I realised my one true homewares love had been found. Now, this Sydney mecca for all things marvellous has opened an online. Everyone in Australia can appreciate their glorious pieces. I did a Store Tour there a few months back and adored everything they had to offer, so I'm beyond excited that y'all get the chance to get in on the action!
For Ria Ford of local business Zambella, living in South Africa for 10 years exposed her to the beaded arts movement. Using recycled items to create handmade gifts, it supports a community of more than 450 artists. The best part? The products are now selling on the Down That Little Lane website and I'm showcasing them (and other wares) today on the blog.
Like the face of an ageing starlet, it seems everything old becomes new again - and the beanbag seems to have received a glorious modern-day rejuvenation. The ones I'm showcasing on the blog today are from local company Crashmat - and the best part is that there are indoor and outdoor varieties for man, woman and child (and your pampered pooch, of course!). With summer on the horizon, I can already envision myself in one of these, poolside, with a cocktail in hand!
It's no secret that I'm a bit obsessed with Typo; it's the go-to store for all things affordable and on-trend in stationery and beyond. I was having kittens, then, when I saw these images of the new Made by Typo pop-up store in Geelong, which has just further fuelled my love for this crafty destination. I'm booking my flights down there immediately if not sooner (and I will be taking all of those pom poms home with me!).
