on December 20, 2017

ah..... a peaceful gentle moment for you all at this time of year.....

over the summer we will be closed on the usual public holidays:

25 and 26 december and 1st and 26th january... and we will also be closed on sundays and mondays in january:

7th and 8th....14th and 15th ... 21st and 22nd.

all detailed on our website.


so this year we are celebrating a few achievements:


thank you to all of our amazing clients and suppliers and staff for another fantastic year!.......after closing potts point due to constant flooding issues, we very much appreciate everyone who has travelled to surry hills to continue our interaction... and in fact our turnover has increased and this has allowed an even greater range of stock...


of course of furniture range keeps evolving with a few new stars delighting clients quite regularly.... our splayed-leg elliptical dining table seems to solve a lot of problems.


we do now hold a lot of furniture in stock now, so possibly we can help you with more pressing desires (and our cabinetmakers are only away for a short break this summer)


we are so happy to be showcasing the work of so many creative australian craftspeople and so much wonderful work from makers across india and means the world to so many ... just this week a maker let it be known that because of planet and our long association, she has been able to stay living in australia...... in india it is the entire livelihood of some families that we are responsible a big thank you.


handmade ceramic tableware has always been our thing and now that the rest of the world has caught up... its so exciting that we have expanded and broadened this whole are of what we do.. with many new makers and many new products from our suppliers that we have represented for years...


after the artists have been paid their commission, the proceeds of sales of 17 paintings so far this calendar year, from the ernabella arts centre, have allowed us to donate $9536.60 on your behalf, to the western desert dialysis charity


we have made small showroom improvements after combining the two showrooms and in the new year we have a few more coming too..finally a new counter is on the way!


our carpet and soft furnishing range is expanding with great success. many unique carpets have been designed by planet and hand-knotted in india this year for custom orders.. and our unique quilts are becoming a bit of a thing too.... in february ross travelled to the kullu valley in the himalayas to work with yak's hair weavers... this coming january he will be in assam with ahimsa (non-violent) silk weavers..


we wish you a merry whatever you do... and a very happy new year with friends and families... from the whole planet team.
