Winter Wishlist


Wish-listing a warm neutral palette for winter:

This is a newly-launched style from Nodi, and I love the two-colour tasselled edges and the simple ribbed style.

Good with Wood


After struggling to find kids furniture that was New Zealand-made, sustainable and playful, mum of three Hannah Fox decided to create her own. Her brand, HideSeek, makes creative, contemporary kids furniture – with a range that includes the Hideout Bed because what kid wouldn’t love their own bedroom hut (p.s: love the little letterbox), Hideout Stool and Hideout Bench (handy to help little shorties to reach things), a great little play/dine table, and the cutest cloud shelf.

If we’re talking about creative furniture for your kids, I can’t leave out fur-kids. Fur-kids are kids too! This is the new Milly Bed by our friends at NDC – a flat-pack pet bed in two sizes that comes with/without a door, and with other custom options like black detailing.

Tools for Enthusiastic Humans


 

Another brilliant niche product from NZ designers George & Willy – the Wall Mounted Letter Display.

It can be anything – a menu, to-do list, a message or quote, an Ideas board for your team – and that’s why I love it.
As with most things George & Willy, there’s a bunch of options so you can mod the concept to fit your purpose –  10 rails or 20, 400 or 800 letters, black or white rails, natural timber letter tiles or white letter tiles….

Available to pre-order at the mo, here

Luke Mills is a New Zealand designer living in Melbourne. (Yes, Australia, you can have pavlova, but New Zealand was the birthplace of Luke Mills.)

Under his brand, Lumil, Luke has a growing range of furniture and lighting with a focus on natural materials (timber, terracotta, ceramics) with clean simple lines and bold forms.

Deftly balancing craft with minimalism – my fave dichotomy.
