A couple of weeks back, I posted about our visit to the distillery Archie Rose, read about it here.
It got me thinking about my bar at home. Now we were the lucky recipients of a Parker drinks trolley, all thanks to the brilliant Tony, a passionate mid century furniture restorer. We bought an amazing Parker dining table and chairs from him, see it in my post here, and he was kind enough to chuck in the drinks trolley for free.
Now I am not sure if you’ve worked it out yet, buy I am a complete and utter shopping nut. None more so then when it is for homewares.
I love some of the products available here in Australia, but find the same products find their way into all shops, meaning finding something a little bit different can be a challenge. That is why I turn a lot to Etsy.
But what about overseas stores?
We have been lucky in the last few years to have had some international homewares stores open their doors here, including West Elm, H&M and Zara Home. But while we wait for more to come, thank god for the internet!!!!
I do love finding things that are a little bit different. while scouring the internet for products I find that quite a lot of stores are stocking the same things and I mean same, not even just similar.
So imagine my delight at finding Safari Fusion. Not a bit of rose gold, copper or marble to be seen. 😉 (not that I am not partial to some of these!!!)
As you may have read, we recently purchased a amazing vintage Ladderax shelving system for our home office / study (Check it out here).
Which got me looking a bits and bobs to add to my shelving to make it both functional and amazing. Now I have been devoting a huge (and I mean huge!!) amount of time to browsing the stores looking for just the right things, both new and vintage.
