Scandi Meets Bondi: Discover (and Win) New Homewares from Zakkia

Book Shelf Styling and Vignettes - from Zakkia Homewares

It’s a little hard to sum up Zakkia.

Yes, it’s a homewares brand and a gorgeous online store, but the exact style of products on offer is a toughie to lock in. Which is probably a good thing. You certainly can’t pigeon hole the them, though it is fair to say the products are an eclectic mix of contemporary, on-trends delights.

It is really hard to try to sum the brand up,” creator Sara Lundgren concedes, although others have described Zakkia as Scandi-meets-Bondi.

“I guess [that description] makes sense,” she continues. “In addition to our obvious Scandi influence, I do think our brand has a little bit of a cool, coastal vibe as well”.

With a black-grey-white colour story that feels distinctly Scandi, there’s also loads of textural elements in the collections that channel a more seaside vibe. Even more delightful is the strong intent to make the designs as clean as possible. It’s a no-fuss approach and it’s a very refreshing one. 

Moving from Sweden to Australia six years ago, Sara’s heritage is wonderfully obvious in the products Zakkia sells, with the name of the biz coming from Sara’s grandmother, who she didn’t get a chance to know growing up.

Sadly, I only met my grandmother once so I never got to know her. I wanted the brand to have a name that meant something, and I liked the sound and uniqueness of Zakkia. Zakkia is also my sister’s middle name, and she likes to think that the brand is named after her”.

The Dala Horse is possibly the most iconic and most popular product in the Zakkia range (and my personal fave). It’s also a special one for Sara, too.

“I love the Dala horse, probably because I feel they are very connected to my Scandinavian heritage. It is such an iconic Swedish handicraft piece. The horses were originally carved in wood, painted in colourful patterns, and used as toys”.

Not only are the products from Zakkia so brilliantly unique and on-trend, but they’re also affordable (and you know that I love to bag a bargain!). It’s an element that Sara wanted to ensure was there from the moment she started the brand.

“Being from Sweden… you could get nicely designed pieces for very affordable prices,” She explains. “When I first moved to Australia I couldn’t find the products I was used to from Sweden, and definitely not at similar prices. So when I first started Zakkia it was very important to me that we keep the prices as low as we possibly could, while not compromising on the quality”.

Well that is one philosophy I can very much get on board with. I am so smitten with the products in this post that I want to guy my home and start again! If you’re a bit keen on Zakkia, hit the competition below and win yourself a $50 voucher!

    I’d use it for the jute storage bags & the wall hooks – both gorgeous & practical.

    I would use it for Jute baskets in various sizes and the wire baskets – as I’m obsessed with storage for the kids “stuff”.It’s taken over the house!!!!!! And I’m so in love with the Polished Brass Jars for some pretty – just for me! So it would be either spent on the little people or me!

    We are in desperate need of storage for my son’s room for his collection of toys so I would go with the Jute Deer storage basket. I have had that exact concrete trivet pinned for my kitchen for weeks so that would be on the list as well. The Concrete wall hook is also calling to me though…

    I simply cannot go past the ‘dear deer ceramic knobs’! They are just the most gorgeous knobs I have ever seen! I feel an up cycle of an old chest of drawers coming on!

    reply
  • I would love the “Please Grow” bag because I do need some luck trying to keep my plants alive! Eeek
    The polished brass trays would also work so well with my existing black cross concrete trivet on my new dining table! xx

    Currently planning a home renovation and this is the style I am after! The concrete trays, deer jute storage bag and brass accessories are perfect pieces to inspire my styling and set the trend.

    reply
  • The polished brass trays. We have no trays at home and they look stunning and very on trend.

    reply
  • I already have 1 little Zakkia concrete house, but its oh so lonely! It needs a friend to help it stand tall and some polished brass to contrast. I completely love the entire range so the possibilities are endless! <3

    Love the Deer Jute Storage Basket, think it could double as a laundry hamper under the small space in my bathroom and add a bit of zing to an otherwise neutral environment!

    Who doesn’t love a good knob? Haha! I’d get the mint hexagonal knobs to do my yearly update of my Ikea bedside drawers. So cute! As well as the deer jute basket to squish my Euro pillows into, this would help the cats from claiming them

    Black concrete round tray would be an amazing addition to my table

  • Michelle Wigley

    I’d love some colourful knobs to dress up a tired tallboy for our new baby’s nursery. A wire basket or two would also be handy for storing bub’s bits and pieces.

    Could easily spend more than $100 here but to choose what i NEED most (not my kids or hubby, but something for me) – it would be the jute oversize basket for next to my lounge to store those rugs/throws when not in use (as they always seem to end up on the floor); triangle basket square and though I love all three colours I would go yellow to brighten up the loungeroom (would sit on the coffee table and used for my books, magazines etc); and the pink round basket would go amazingly in my bathroom as i love pink but dont have a lot of it around in my house and it would be perfect for storing my products that currently sit on my bathroom bench. But then again could go so much more – Drool !!!!!

    I WANT IT ALL LOL 🙂 I especially love the deer jute storage basket, concrete trivet, and small white cross wall hook. <3 <3 <3

  • Bronte Johnston

    Wow, so many amazing products! It’s hard to choose, but I’m currently doing up my eldest boys’ room and have done crosses on their blind and made a custom cross door knob for their cupboard so the crosses wall hooks would be fantastic – it would certainly help keep wall their library bags/hats etc off the floor!
