Yesterday we had an amazing turn out even before we opened our doors! Thank you to all of you who stood in line both outside and in.
We’ve been keeping busy reorganizing goods that were a bit tucked away and a whole truck load of other new goods has arrived to fill in space.
Visit us today (Friday May 28th) until 5pm at 405 Railway St and come back tomorrow (Saturday May 29th) for some further mark downs.
There are lots of great finds left over, take a look at some stuff that we still have looking for a new home.
No guarantees that these pieces will still be here with all the traffic coming through.
Plenty of chairs for indoor and outdoor.

We’ve been working hard preparing our annual warehouse sale. An epic sale event that runs for two days. A time for us to shed some weight and prepare for all the new goods we ordered in this years fairs. Clients from all around come to see what great deals they can find (some even fly in just for this event).
We hope to see all who can make it there!

Many of my best ideas come to me lying in bed, letting my mind relax right before sleep takes me over. Often, I wake up knowing that just a few hours prior, I might have had a moment of genius, an epiphany that would could surely be a success, only, I can’t remember the idea itself. Some nights I visualize great displays of visual stimuli with particular details that tie the whole piece together – So many times I have wished that I had some sort of device to quickly and easily record these fleeting thoughts. Yes, I know that “there’s an app for that” but loading screens, chubby fingers that don’t tap where need be and the lack of a pen or stylus just do not inspire me, nor serve my needs in the way that I require. I’ve discovered Moleskine since.

“Quality is a funny concept. We tend to think of it as being associated with handcraft. But quality is also about your attitude toward design. Craftsmanship is just as much about how you run the machines that are now necessary for economic viability.”

A self-taught designer-maker from London England, Tom Dixon has combined the creative with the commercial throughout his career.
He fell into design by accident when he found himself with “time on his hands” while recovering from a motorcycle accident. As an art school drop-out with no technical training, he taught himself how to become a designer-maker in 1983 after discovering welding when trying to repair his motorbike.
Dixon’s D-I-Y approach to design matched the post-punk mood of the early 1980s. Having made his name – but little money – by making and selling limited editions of his welded furniture – chairs such as the S Chair and Pylon Chair(above) – he tried his hand at retailing, by opening a shop, Space, to sell his products.

My recent visit to Japan has reminded me of how our ideas of living are constantly changing and that we often need to find smarter and more efficient ways of planning our homes.
In this post I will highlight a few tips on how the right furniture choices can maximize a living space. Check back in the following weeks for a few more posts on the topic.
Simplified Living Room Seating
The ultra minimal SLEEPER Sofa by Bensen offers the maximum seating area by removing arms while retaining a high level of comfort. The simple mechanism allows the sofa to turn instantly into a daybed for a quick nap or to accommodate sudden guests. The lack of a large internal bed system keeps the sofa light on its feet.
