Whether you’re feeling the warmer weather starting to pass or you’re simply wanting a fresh look for your home and haven, it doesn’t take a whole lot to breathe new life into a space — even just a few minor tweaks can make all of the difference. A new ornament, some groovy new mugs or a vase to hold a bunch of hand-picked garden flowers are just some of the many things you can utilise to give you that new beginning feeling. While we love all homeware and interior design activities, we wanted to start with something basic, so let’s focus on the kitchen and living area. We really can’t stress it enough, it doesn’t take much, which is why we’ve come up with a few of our must-have additions that are sure to liven up your home and put a bit of a spin on the mundane.
Frank Green | French Press
Designed for the ultimate coffee connoisseur, this french press delivers pure decadence. Created with an innovative ceramic inner layer that will keep your coffee tasting just the way it was intended, with an integrated stainless steel mesh plunger that ensures it stays deliciously smooth until the very last drop — there’s no sediment in sight. The revolutionary triple-wall vacuum insulation keeps your coffee steaming hot or icy cold while you go about your day, while the pouring hole has been purposefully designed for a quick pour so you can quickly transfer it into your reusable cup and hit the road.
Ned Collections | Bud Harmie Vase
Inspired by Vietnamese artisans, The Harmie Vase gives that hand-crafted feel with it being moulded into organic seed-like shapes and in a colour palette to get any pottery-lover fizzing! The entire collection is sourced globally and hand selected with the consumer at front of mind. Founder Brett, who is also a retired professional rugby player from Christchurch, has a keen eye for interiors and clean design with an eclectic edge. Travelling as far as Vietnam, Thailand, China, Indonesia and Africa, this piece makes up just some of the all-time favourites for buyers from this unique and carefully crafted collection of vases that we sell right here in store and online.
Beldi | Grande Glass Tumbler
Did you know that the very last glass factory in Morocco still making hand-blown glasses was saved from permanent closure not so long ago? It may be hard to believe, but it’s also what makes these glass tumblers so incredibly special. These simple but beautiful glasses are handblown from recycled glass by Moroccan artisans who now continue to carry on the tradition and create pieces that are absolutely timeless. The Beldi glass in particular is a gorgeous piece that would make a welcome addition to any homeware set, and is entirely suitable for wine, water, tea, coffee or to serve sweet or savoury dishes.
Robert Gordon | Strata Mug 4 Pack
