05 Oct Shop with Linda
Here are some of my tried and trusted Sydney favourites and a couple of new finds for you in this edition of Shop with Linda.
There’s no excuse not to visit Koskela, if not for the incredible warehouse-style store that pops with a range of modern, unique Australian-made furniture full of colour, texture and style, then to experience the delicious food at Kitchen by Mike, which shares the same space.
Functional and durable furniture created with new, recycled and innovative materials by local Australian craftsmen. Plus a great unique range of homewares, some inspired by the past, some looking to the future. Great range of design books too.
SPENCE & LYDA
Curated like a gallery, quality pieces from iconic brands like Missoni Home, Autoban, Matthew Hilton and Modernica sit alongside Spence and Lyda’s eponymous collection of Australian-made furniture.
Soft furnishings and fabrics, bed, bath, accessories, lighting and beautiful timeless furniture.
MARK TUCKEY HOME
Located in Avalon, a growing design mecca on the Northern Beaches, Mark Tuckey produces all his own classic and modern timber furniture designs (out of Melbourne), with everything from chairs and tables to beds, dining room pieces and outdoor furniture. Using new and recycled timber, they bring a cutting-edge feel to every piece. Mark Tuckey home stocks modern homewares that compliment the timber look, from gifts, to throws to room decorations. Always something new to find.
TOP3 BY DESIGN
Top3 selects 3 products per category in its amazingly edited collection of industrial-style designed homewares and gifts. Their focus is on celebrating innovative uses of materials, young new designers as well as paying homage to some of the greatest classics of the 20th century.
Worth a visit to see their multi award winning retail merchandising alone!
