Products of the month: May 2016

This month, we have gathered our favourite finds to help you bring 2016’s winter styling trends into your home. Think natural fibres, soft pastel colours, reflective brass and coppers and, of course, the prevailing trend of the past year: marble. Take a look…

1. Kate & Kate Helena Alpaca Blanket, $299. 

Woven from one of nature’s most luxurious fibres, Kate & Kate’s Alpaca blanket is heirloom quality and incredibly soft and warm. It’s perfect for throwing over you during those chilly winter nights at home or if you’re heading out to see a winter sports game, and it’s in the season’s key colour too.helena_alpaca_blanket_pink_stripe_crumple

2. Pottery Barn Leila Marble-top Side Table, $329. 

This tripod table is a modern twist on a classic design. The white Carrara marble top rests on a crisscross base joined by a ring at the centre. It’s a great size for a side table to sit your drinks and nibbles when you’re cozying up on the couch, and the gold of the legs is very ‘on trend’.

3. Tom Dixon Etch Shade Copper, POA.

The lighting and furniture designer Tom Dixon has long been working with metals. His ‘Etch’ pendant lights are made up of 0.4mm etched metal sheets and are inspired by the logic of pure mathematics, geodesic structures. Pendant lights work beautifully above an island bench in the kitchen, clustered above the dining table or either side of the bed. The Etch pendants are available in steel, brass and black.

We all know Dinosaur Designs for its chunky, statement resin jewellery. But did you know that the Australian company produces homewares too? This high polished brass bowl is formed by hand from a single flat sheet of 1.5mm thick brass. It’d be a shame to put anything in it!
