It’s that time of the year to keep warm and snuggly and our handcrafted bed has been a popular request the last couple of months. We have one down on the retail floor in MANY6160 at the moment so if you are in Fremantle pop in to have a look. And if you happen to be there on a Thursday or Friday and want to talk to the maker – he is likely to be just upstairs so give him a call (but if he doesn’t answer straight away it might be because the ear-muffs are on!).

In perfect time for the festive period our latest shipment of that fantastic danish design is here – a couple of pics below to whet your appetite but otherwise head over to our ‘Vintage Pieces‘ section to check out our latest vintage items hot off the boat!
If you see something you like, or want to find out more – remember you can always drop us a line here if you can’t make it into our showroom.
The summer weather in Denmark was trying it’s best to cling on when Ben visited in September on his latest search for beautiful furniture. Catching up with old friends in Copenhagen and out in the country is also a favourite bonus to Ben’s trip…I hear he was lucky enough to join in a gymnastics class (!), enjoy locally made wine from a small vineyard and of course enjoy the famously great danish food and hospitality. He’s reminded what a special place it is each time he visits.
The good news for us on the other side of the world here in Fremantle is that some of that magic has been secured and is heading our way! Whilst Ben did enjoy hanging with the Danish locals doing what the locals do, he spent most of his time hand-picking each furniture item and carefully packing it into a container. And it’s now making its way to our shores. Woo hoo! We are so excited we can’t wait now to unpack it! Watch this space!

…and it’s been a laid back affair in our house – kids free roaming down to the park, enjoying the winter garden festivities in Fremantle, lazy days kicking the soccer ball and hanging out with cousins…hope yours has been just as fun x Here are some pics – kids, raw materials and not-so-raw chest of drawers sitting under a gorgeous Anya Brock original…
Keeping a handy place for the kids to dispose of their shoes, toys and the mysterious treasures found on that morning walk can only be a good thing. A mud room or entry can be that lovely place where wet jackets and sneakers are left behind before taking residence anywhere else in the house.
Finding a ready made attractive and functional solution to this problem that fits well within a small space can sometimes be tricky. Below are a few custom designed and installed solutions Ben and Jack came up with recently that easily ticked all the necessary boxes.
The next stage is training kids to use it.
Solid american white oak bench with 3 drawers finished in Black Satin. A drawer for each child.
A similar custom open faced design in an entryway with Muuto Dots for coats etc.
