Mecca Coffee interiors

ALEXANDRIA DESIGN SHOPS

Started off a sourcing trip to the Alexandria area with coffee at Mecca Cafe.  Industrial interiors designed by Smith and Carmody; love that eye-catching blue and white flooring.  On to Design Twins to view their concrete pots, and Sibella Court's, The Society Inc, for curated treasures.  Back to Living Edge to view classic design, such as Walter Knoll and Herman Miller.  Over to Rosebery to view the latest from Australian designers at Koskela, and Scandinavian design furniture at Fred International.

Lunch of tangy goat feta and leek quiche with quinoa salad at Black Star Pastry.  (We went to go to the new Three Blue Ducks at Koskela, but they were closed that day... best to check their schedule ahead of time to avoid disappointment.)  One more visit to Homeware Gallery down the street at Botany Road, where they stock such brands as Normann Copenhagen, Studio Pip and Resident.  Links and addresses provided below for your own shopping trip!
