    but perhaps going somewhere this summer? we have a great range of bags to suit men and women. including this range in black canvas with leather detailing from qwestion in switzerland. an exclusive one only set ( of 9 only worldwide) is at our surry hills store.

     


    indigo blues seem to be having their moment in interiors and fashion. we have this amazing collection of vintage japanese pots in surry hills and many come with their original timber signed boxes

     

    indigo bedlinen, indonesian ikat throw with laos indigo cushions and vintage persian carpet... and we even have some stock furniture for pre christmas delivery including beds


    and also we have a beautiful collection from an australian leathergoods company... perfect day bags for travel or just getting through your day


    handtowels perfect for guests and turkish towels for the beach or by the pool. many of these pieces are khadi from india: handspun and handwoven too

     

    andrew burns has created these sweet small vases. taking his inspiration from polystyrene, he has used this material to cast from for a delicate surface texture

     

    you didn't realise that you might need a glass cloud  in your life... cast in four sizes as a sculptural object or perhaps a paperweight?
