New seasons are an opportunity.
A chance to press refresh. To pause and consider.
To Think Differently. Design Differently. Work Differently. Play Differently. LIVE Differently.
We welcome Autumn–19 and look forward to sharing the inspiration each of our brand partners brings us. In our opinion, they pioneer what it means to ...

Life's short, right? So if we can, we should ... #DwellWell
No one wants to finish a day, a week, a month, a year spinning the groundhog wheel. When every moment is really an opportunity to experience life at a new, or deeper level.
We love nothing more than connecting with the designers of our in store brands. It may be new product - or just new thinking, new campaigns, new adventures ... they are more often than not, pursuing something outside of the ordinary.
MARNIE GODING @ ELK THE LABEL
A pioneer of independent Australian design ELK was founded by husband and wife duo Marnie Goding and Adam Koniaras in 2004. Both the ELK aesthetic and brand philosophy holds a unique place within the Australian design landscape. Championing a highly considered approach to production, ELK resonates with their audience through a level of product refinement, trend curation and intellect that is innately their own. Sculptural accessories, hand-made leather and ready-to-wear collections define their artful vision while their devotion to ethical practices has endured them as a leader in the practice of responsible innovation for the accessories industry. Founded on a belief in creativity, innovative design and an authentic approach where people are at the heart of every decision, Creative Director Marnie Goding’s passion for local design and independent, ethically sourced fashion has created a brand of enduring value.
SOPHIE MATSON @ KØBN
A homewares veteran, Sophie Matson spent twelve years as the Senior Textile Designer for Country Road Home. She always knew she would champion her own label and in 2018 her dream came to fruition. The Købn collection is an expression of her well-honed aesthetic and dedication to the highest quality fabrics. With it's signature muted colour palette (inspired by the streets of Copenhagen), Købn is a styling revelation for design-obsessed home owners wishing to carry their interior mode from the house to the water.
DENNIS PAPHITAS @ AĒSOP
Dennis Paphitas, Founder of Aēsop is a certain champion of #EscapeTheOrdinary.
For more than 20 years he pioneered the objective of formulating skin, hair and body care products of the finest quality. Investigating widely to source plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients, and using only those with a proven record of safety and efficacy. In 2004, in an underground nook in the Melbourne bayside suburb of St Kilda, he hosted his first in-store customers. The space – once a narrow ramp descending into an underground carpark – set the benchmark for future architectural ambitions. In seeking new boutique locations, his first consideration was always to work with what is already in place and tread lightly with respect for the past, present and future. Since Aesop’s inception, Dennis Paphitas maintained a fiercely independent approach to product research and development. Teams of skilled chemical scientists work out of the Aēsop Head Office in a utilitarian, custom-built laboratory – conceptualising product ideas, researching blends, and creating prototypes to fill the now iconic amber bottles.
ARMI RATIA @ MARIMEKKO
The house of Marimekko was founded in 1951 by a visionary woman Armi Ratia. Now celebrated worldwide for its original prints and colours, Marimekko is said to be one of the world's first real lifestyle brands combining fashion, bags and accessories as well as home decoration into one unique point of view.
Armi Ratia created a true original mission. Through timeless, distinctive and functional designs, she wanted to empower people to be happy as they are and bring joy to their everyday lives through bold prints and colours.
Success is hers we say!
BENJAMIN YOUNG @ FRANK GREEN
First things first: Frank Green isn’t a person, it’s a philosophy.
We all want to do better by our planet. We know how bad single-use coffee cups, water bottles and plastics are for the environment. Founder Benjamin Young took things to the next level with his passion for creating a well-designed, stylish, and really (really) convenient drink option.
Hours of planning, relentless questioning, meticulous designing, fierce engineering, a bunch of mistakes and a lot of caffeine later, the Frank Green cup as we know it came to be. Something beautiful ... and INdisposable.
We were only chatting recently with the creative team at Art – Work Agency. They were saying that in the last year, between the 3 of them, they have saved more than 1000 coffee cups from land fill. Nothing ordinary about that!
We hope our products, brands & Designers inspire you as much as they do us. We love to share design stories in store and HOPE that when you choose your gifts you enjoy sharing them with your recipient too.
This season, and always ...
Think Differently. Design Differently. Work Differently. Play Differently. LIVE Differently.
