It won’t shock you when I reveal that I’ve always been a fan of a pop of colour. It certainly helps my cause – when I’m trying to justify my homewares spending to my partner – when colourful homewares come with added benefits in terms of their function. Don’t you find that it’s always easier to justify a spend if the product works well?
Although truth be told, I can justify just about any purchase if need be (the cushion “works” to help create the “visual story” which inturn helps the whole space “feel cohesive and resolved”). Try those buzzwords next time your partner suggests your bed doesn’t need 45 cushions. It’ll baffle them to much they’ll leave you alone!
Microfibre Homewares from KE Design
Anyway, I digress. The pieces I want to show you in today’s post are packed with gorgeous looks and some awesome benefits. They’re from KE Design; a local brand that produces some amazing microfibre products for your kitchen and beyond.
What makes KE Design so special right off the bat is that they’re a family-run business who support special needs workers. They’ve partnered with Brunswick Sheltered Workshops down here in Melbourne for the past 11 years, providing work to people with disabilities. Creating an environment that’s conducive to the worker’s needs, the partnership between the two has had amazing results for everyone involved.
When it comes to products, the benefits of microfibre in KE Designs’ tea towels are numerous; absorbing six times their weight in water, they remove smears, watermarks and fingerprints effortlessly. They’re quick-drying too and reduces bacteria on surfaces by up to 92%.
They come presented in a gorgeous gift box, so they’re super-cute to give as gifts and definitely add a pop of colour to your cupboard or oven handle (that’s where my tea towels get tucked, anyway!).
Outside of microfibre tea towels, the team at KE Design also produce cushions, greeting cards and post cards from their Brunswick warehouse. Oh, and microfibre cloths too, which are great for cleaning your glasses, phones, ipads or computer screens.
