The 2016 Zakkia Homewares Range is Loaded with Scandi Goodness
Aussie brand Zakkia has given The Life Creative a look at its brand new homewares collection for 2016. And there’s more than a few surprises in store for lovers of their Scandi-meets-Bondi aesthetic.
What’s most captivating about the new Zakkia homewares range, called 2016: Collection 01, is that the brand is venturing into handmade bowls, mugs, spoons and containers. TLC has showcased previous collections from Zakkia on the blog before (take a look at them here), but this one feels altogether different.
The colour palette features the monochromatic base Zakkia homewares are known for, but mixes in divine touches of lavender and pink alongside a seagrass tone reminiscent of the ocean. You’ll also notice a hint of brass detailing here and there, which really gives some of the homewares a contemporary point of interest.
Outside of the bowls, mugs, spoons and containers, the ladies behind Zakkia have also released travel accessories, which get the TLC tick of approval. The travel pouches and organisers feature genuine leather and a lightweight plastic mesh, so they’re super portable for your luggage but also office-ready if you’re keen to refresh your workspace.
“I think the most exciting thing about this collection is the materials,” says creator Sara Lundgren. “We have worked closely with specialists in ceramics, stoneware and clay to create unique finishes like the speckled pattern on our tumblers and bowls. These are natural reactions from the heat in the kilning process and it gives every product its own special pattern”.
Sara tells me that it’s tough to choose a favourite piece from the new collection, but she admits to being a fan of the speckled mugs and the travel accessories.
“I’m looking forward to my next trip so I can use our travel organisers and pouches”.
You’re not alone, Sara, you’re not alone!
The 2016 Zakkia homewares collection will be available for purchase in March.
Zakkia will be appearing at Life Instyle Sydney, which runs from February 18 to 21.
