Cushions and Fabric

We have some stunning new fabric ranges just arrived ....... just in time to spruce up the lounge for the indoor time of the year! 
We custom make in all shapes and sizes and our workroom does spectacular work...of course!  These images from Harlequin showcase some of the gorgeous cushion styles and upholstery textures available.

New Candle Range

We recently took delivery of a beautiful new candle range at Natural Habitat. 
Whilst I know candles are available in all shapes and sizes, this range took my eye due to its simple and elegant presentation. 
They burn for up to 60hrs and we have a variety of frangrances including lemongrass, 
valencia orange, gardenia, tahitian, oakmoss and pineapple cilantro to name a few. 
I have lemongrass burning on my desk at this very minute and it is very uplifting on this bleak wet autumn evening.

Designex Update

Well it was off to Melbourne last week with a group of architect colleagues for the annual Designex fix! Whilst it appeared to be
much smaller than past events, it still showcased some interesting new product. 
I particularly liked the new cedar tiles from Thurja and the recycled paneling as pictured. 
A trip out to Richmond to Hermon & Hermon never disappoints and the meal at "Movida"
(still researching Spanish Tapas bars!) 
was inspiring!

Spanish Tapas

Whilst doing some research
for a wine/tapas bar today,
(great news for Coffs locals and visitors!)
I came across this little gem.
Just love the wall mural and of course the colours! 

Bodega Tapas Restaurant & Bar
216 Commonwealth St
Surry Hills NSW 2010
Phone: +61 2 9212 7766

It's no secret that small portions and tapas style dining are all the go now and I also enjoyed some fabulous food whilst working 
in Sydney last week. 
Bertas, H Bar and The Wine Library are all well worth a visit... 
(it was all in the name of r & d of course!)
