Outdoor Crystal Glasses

We love watching people pick up our new outdoor glasses in-store, as it is only then that they realise the lightweight glasses are not cut crystal, but actually polycarbonate.  Suitable for everyday use, outdoor parties, boats and camping, these glasses are top rack dishwasher safe.

We will definitely be using these glasses at Christmas time as they look formal enough for the big day and the inevitable dropped glass won’t result in a broken mess.

Also available in a palm tree design.

We are also happy to announce the return by popular demand of our bamboo wine bar pictured below.

Christmas Sneak Peek 2018

It is that time of year again and we are setting up our stores and online for Christmas! The Collaroy store is currently filled with stunning decorations and the elves will have finished setting up Bundall by this Friday, November 2nd. Keep an eye on the website this week for all the stunning decorations soon to be released. In the meantime, we thought we would give you a quick sneak peek on the blog.

If you can’t wait for our Christmas windows, they will be installed at the end of November along with even more Christmas goodies over the coming weeks.

How To Create A Tropical Paradise At Home

Have you ever been on a tropical holiday and wanted to bring that relaxed vibe back with you? We have definitely felt that way, which is why we have created a relaxed tropical living room and dining room in-store, filled with plenty of inspiration on how to replicate the look at home.

The key to a tropical or plantation feel is to take inspiration from nature. We have incorporated green artificial foliage, green cushions and green, in artworks to bring the outside in. To work in some sandy-beach-tones, we have used natural timbers and hemp rugs, along with raffia and hessian cushions.

For the dining table, we have used our new bamboo and banana palm dinnerware, which looks stunning with the soon-to-arrive bamboo-handled cutlery. The artificial leaf placemats add a pop of colour and fit right in with the tropical look.  We love how this setting has been topped off with our shell turtle.

Our polycarbonate glasses and jug have just arrived and feature palm trees etched into the outside. We know these are going to be a hit for outdoor parties, due to their durable material and that they are top-rack dishwasher safe!

We love the above chair! The back is hand-painted and looks like an original from an old master’s painting.
