When one-of-a-kind furniture is one of the major design trends of 2021, it makes perfect sense that leading homewares retailer King has delivered a new service enabling customers to order and buy pieces to their exact specifications. Available across King’s broad product range—think: sofas, beds, ottomans, cushions, chairs, desks and dining tables—the online service uses AI technology allowing shoppers to customise design, configuration and size, not to mention select from King’s range of over 140 different fabrics and leathers. From customer favourites like the Zaza and Jasper lounges, to newer designs like the Fleur, King is also offering up to five free fabric samples to help with the decision-making process. Need a hand? You can also speak to one of the online product specialists available seven days a week, from 9am-9pm. Visit:

En Gold

 Over the last few years, Melbourne-based studio En Gold has consistently been producing covetable stone pieces, amassing a loyal following for its work with marble, travertine and lucite. If you’re familiar with En Gold’s website, you may know it also stocks a tightly curated edit of boutique designers, and the brand’s latest collaboration with Chinese brand kar-Studio fits perfectly within its chic and minimalist aesthetic. Stocking a selection of the sculptural, handcrafted fibreglass pieces, En Gold’s exclusive partnership with the Steven Yeung-founded brand speaks to the similarities between each studio: a celebration of form and materiality and a focus on quality craftsmanship. Visit:

Coco Republic

Design destination Coco Republic’s new home office collection has just dropped, making it the perfect time to overhaul your home office. The stylish collection of desks, chairs, table lamps and office accessories comes in luxurious materials like marble, brass, leather and bouclĂ©, giving you ample opportunity to create a serene and productive work environment in your own home.

In the market for new outdoor furniture? Stay tuned for Coco Republic’s new wanderlust-inspired outdoor collection, which lands in stores and online in September. And if you’re itching to browse a bricks-and-mortar store, you’ll be heartened to know there’s a new three-storey flagship in Balgowloah opening later this month, with new stores in Perth and Canberra scheduled for 2021, too. Visit:


Originating in the UK in 2018, Maker&Son’s natural, handmade and sustainable approach has won the label a legion of fans, among them Australia’s own Troye Sivan, whose olive Song sofa sits in the living room of his Melbourne home. Most recently, the brand has launched the Marnie range into Australia, and its piped edge covers are cleverly interchangeable with the Song sofa covers. Available in a range of colours and fabrications, the Maker&Son team also operates a host of mobile showrooms around Australia and New Zealand, where you can jump in the back of a van and test the uber-comfy lounges and armchairs for yourself. Be sure to check the website for the most current mobile showroom locations and updates. Visit:


 With springtime just around the corner for Australians, Flexform’s new indoor and outdoor furniture collection hits just the right note for this time of year. Sleek and contemporary, yet still undoubtedly timeless thanks to its neutral palette, both Flexform collections, which are stocked at Fanuli, exemplify the brand’s design nous and craftsmanship. We particularly love the Tessa S.H. indoor chair (pictured above)—as a design made to withstand the test of time. And if you’re in the market for outdoor furniture, the Freeport, Hamptons, Any Day, Echo and Lee ranges are just the neutral-toned pieces your outdoor space is looking for. Made from wood, steel, aluminium, polypropylene fibres and fabric parts that are able to be re-used or recycled, the Italian brand’s commitment to sustainability is equally commendable. Visit:

Tigmi Trading

Byron-based design outfit Tigmi Trading has long been on our radar for its chic edit of designer furniture and globally sourced rugs, but the launch of its first ever in-house rug collection Rilievo is certainly noteworthy. Designed by Tigmi, each rug is hand-knotted and made-to-order in Nepal by artisans, and is crafted from New Zealand wool and natural linen. With five designs inspired by Carlo Scarpa’s architecture, in six beautiful colourways, each rug is certified by GoodWeave, a non-profit dedicated to ending child labour practices. Plus, for every sale, Tigmi will plant one tree with rainforest conservationist ReForest Now. Visit:


Australian homewares giant Domayne has released a number of new products this winter, including sofas such as the Carter six-piece fabric modular lounge and Loft fabric lounge and armchair. In the market for something more affordable? Domayne has you sorted with a number of small items that can still make a big impact, from elegant geometrical floor lamps and to rattan pendants to chinoiserie-inspired vases and plush patterned throw pillows. Even the bathroom is covered with a range of cheerful bathmats, organic cotton bath towels in earthy neutral tones and Salt & Pepper bathroom accessories in a number of finishes like terrazzo, ribbed poly resin and natural marble. Visit:

One of our favourite sustainable rug companies, Armadillo, has teamed up with Australian design and architecture studio Daniel Boddam for an installation in the Armadillo Sydney flagship. Boddam showcases Armadillo’s new collection of hand-knotted Afghan wool rugs, Odessa, alongside his newest furniture pieces, the Booham Chair and Pipi Table. Surrounded by other Boddam designs, like his signature Wave sofa and armchair in sand-coloured bouclĂ©, the installation draws from elements of the Australian landscape. While lockdown in Sydney means this is currently closed to the public, you can view a preview of the installation at
