TRADE SHOWS - LIFE INSTYLE AND REED

My head is still spinning from all the product I viewed at last week's design trade shows! So many great items that I cannot begin to spec them all, so I am sharing some of my favourites here.  There is a little blurb on each, and a website link.  A lot of product is available online, so you can order from around Australia, and even overseas!  (Some product is available only through trade or wholesale; so if you're interested, email me and I can help you out!)

St Barts

St Barts
St Barts specialises in tribal/beach/bohemian luxe homewares.  They have beautiful textures in natural materials.  I especially liked their large bowls in both stone and timber that have been difficult to locate elsewhere
Availability: Two locations in Queensland, wholesale and trade
Website: https://st-barts.com.au/

Keep Resin

Keep Resin
A contemporary range of hand-crafted resin homewares; I am loving the current range of neutrals with texture blended through.
Availability: Wholesale, stockists, some markets
Website: www.keepresin.com.au

Clocksicle

Clocksicle
How I wish I had found Clocksicle a few months ago when sourcing a clock for a child's room.  It is hard to find a clock that ties in with a child's decor, with legible numbers.  (As a bonus, this one doesn't tick.)  Learning time is an important developmental milestone, as it means parents can sleep in, once they teach their child not to disturb them until 7am!
Availability: Wholesale, trade, online, stockists

Made From Good Deeds

Made From Good Deeds
These products are a subtle, classic way of displaying your artwork and photography; from wooden blocks that sit on the desk to displaying your prints on the wall in a hangar.
Availability: Wholesale, stockists, some markets
Website: www.madefromgooddeeds.com

Botanica

Botanica
A client first introduced me to Botanica.  I immediately fell for their marble and glass terrariums; the perfect finish in any modern space.
Availability: Online and various stockists around Australia.
Website: www.botanica.boutique

Emma Kate

Wild Hearts by Emma Kate Co
Emma Kate has expanded beyond her card range into planners, notebooks and wall art.  Her new world map artwork would look great in a child's bedroom!
Availability: Online, and various stockists around Australia

Bisque

Bisque Interiors
Large range of recycled wood furniture, fabric, lighting and homewares with a bohemian/tribal flare.
Availability: Wholesale to stockits and interior designers.

White Moose

White Moose
Look here for quirky homewares, yet refined wall art.  Australian design, yet "White Moose" owes its name to its founder studying design in Canada!
Available: Online, and wholesale
Website: www.whitemoose.com.au

Tribe Home

Tribe Home
More tribal inspired homewares; but I particularily liked their rugs and shiny plant pots!
Availability: Trade, wholesale and stockits

Zakkia

Zakkia
Australian-designed, Swedish-inspired contemporary homewares: a fave of stylists and designers.
Availability: Wholesale, trade and stockists.
Website: www.zakkia.com.au

I Ended Up Here

I Ended Up Here
One of my personal favourites; I have always loved the graphic design and colour of these fun animals.  They elicit a happy response from young clients too.  New for this season are bamboo plates and cushions.
Availability: Wholesale, online, stockists, some markets
Website: www.iendeduphere.com

Urban Rituelle

Urban Rituelle
Another personal favourite; I've loved their selection of soaps for years.  They have added to the range since then and you can now purchase candles and reed diffusers; because while your house should look good, it should also smell good.
Availability: Online, wholesale. select stockists
Website: www.urbanrituelle.com.au

Milk & Sugar

Milk & Sugar
Milk and Sugar always has a great edit of cushions, lighting and plates.  (If you're familiar with my space, that is where my own cushions have come from.)
Availability: Online, wholesale. stockists
Website: www.milkandsugar.com.au

For Me By Dee

For Me By Dee
Another sweet animal print company, I have been wanting to specify her giraffe print for a child's room for a while now!
Availability: Wholesale, online, stockists, some markets
Website: www.formebydee.com

Barefoot Gypsy

Barefoot Gypsy
I keep being drawn to Moroccan wedding blanket cushions since my Chatswood project. Barefoot Gypsy has some beautiful ones, and ottomans as well.  (This is the great thing about being a designer; you're not tied to any one style, but can incorporate different pieces into different clients homes.)
Availability: Wholesale, online, stockists
Website: www.barefootgypsy.com.au

Blacklist Studio
I forgot to pick up a brochure from Blacklist Studio... but again, I am waiting for the right space to specify for, as I love their funky, contemporary artwork.
Availability: Online, stockists
