I’d officially like to offer you Council of Objects as a must for any visit to Adelaide. This little treasure trove of local design and art was opened in 2011 and has now been followed up with an online store showcasing a smaller but beautiful range of objects. Below I’ve pulled together just a few options that might appeal to you all! Aside from being so beautifully crafted – there is some seriously clever decision making going on with a lot of this design as well. Enjoy!        Imagery supplied

The honest to goodness great design and quality of all Mavis + Osborn products is sweetened even more so by the fact that designer; Tamzin Hawkins has kept to her mission of remaining New Zealand made. With the brands growth into homeware and general high quality lifestyle offerings in small runs; the focus of operating as an ethical and sustainable business using local makers remains critical. Something to be respected for sure! This latest collection casts beautiful natural fibres (linen, leather, wool and cotton canvas) over lifestyle basics you barely knew

Last years post introducing you all to Klaylife was one of our most visited and shared ever! To me this simply indicated that you were all keen and ready for something fresh, innovative and beautifully made …. that was definitely my feeling when I first came across their dramatic but natural chandeliers. Well the Australian based team have been busy on their follow up collection – this time working with stylist/designer Jacqui Moore of Moore Concepts to introduce some colour and new shapes! Take some time to browse the pics below

Ico Traders has been a well kept Canterbury secret for far too long….something which is ALL about to change! Designer/founder/curator; Miranda Osborne has just launched a packed online store to make her collection of wire furniture, homeware and lighting very browsable – this may cause some discomfort to your credit card! The Christchurch earthquake acted as a catalyst for Miranda to make some changes to her life and work situation with a focus on less travelling and more time with her family. Her background in buying and passion for design led to the

We are so often presented with homeware and beautiful textiles with our focus on the final product – but on receiving an email from Christine Brimer, I have totally reconsidered the fine, detailed art of textile creation! Wellington based Christine is a recent Massey University design graduate where she majored in textile design. Her final collection “Take Me With You” was an exploration of New Zealand landscape, articulating comfort and belonging. “I utilised the potential of weave to design and prototype textural weaves using stronger wools in undyed natural hues” – the

Its been a while since we last checked in with the latest from Miss Glass Home – the Australian designers of the MOST attractive clothes airers on the planet!! Designer Siobhan Glass has continued to focus on beautiful products for the home and laundry by pulling beautiful products from around the world to exclusively stock online. Not only that, new from her own studio are the hand sculpted wooden “heads” ready to look after your headwear at the end of a busy day! Take a browse at the whole collection here.

I feel like its actually been a while since I have introduced some “brand new” design to you (and your home) !! Meet creative – the collaborative design venture by interior designer and stylist; Nina Provan, and Nick Rennie, a product designer affiliated with well known international furniture companies Normann Copenhagen and Ligne Roset. They have bonded beyond their friendship of over 10 years, to meet in the middle with their clean aesthetic, strong focus on quality, local production AND a shared love of simplistic Japanese design. The result

Monmouth Glass Studio is rapidly becoming a modern icon of glass craft within our NZ shores and its VERY exciting to share with you the launch of online store! Yes! I hope those are squeals of joy from you all outside of Auckland! Isaac Katzoff and Stephen Bradbourne are the talented hands and eyes behind many a custom project and their growing range of recognisable lighting and tableware. Both artists are regular exhibitors of personal work and highly regarded in the glass blowing world! I’d recommend you have a good browse

It took me just one image in the  Father Rabbit newsletter to send me swiftly to view their collection of ceramics from highly respected Australian company; Robert Gordon. This range is beautifully pared back and smooth but suitably “wonky” and soft for my liking. Those exquisite shell planters are a marvel in their workmanship while I dream of gathering together that family of garden bells. A whole nother post could be focused on the story of Robert Gordon, the family passion for ceramics preceding and the generations coming on board to continue what is a

While the Helix Table might be the latest arrival in the stable of David Moreland Design, I decided to share much more of his back catalogue as its so GOOD! Aside from his wide ranging collection of furniture and lighting, David regularly works on custom fit outs for a variety of commercial level projects not to mention ongoing design work for Citta! I love his distinctly “smooth” lined aesthetic that feels so modern while still maintaining a softness.  Explore more from this leader in NZ design here PLUS his stockists!
