The annual Trade Fair in Melbourne is a wonderful boutique event showcasing emerging trends, brands and products that are on the cooler side of style and design! I literally walked for 5 days straight to hunt down the cream of the products and I am super pumped about what we have coming in store. Here is a little wrap up and review of what I saw (and my favourites).
Bringing the outdoors inside - succulent prints from Middle of Nowhere and new potted fake succulents that look so real it's crazy.
Lighting, cement and copper pendants from Indigo Love Collectors were the most exciting product at the fair for me. Also, bright wire lights from General Eclectic to mix and match with different coloured flex cords. There were some beautiful bedside lamps which will be on their way soon. Marquee lights for the wall and industrial lights. The anchor light sure got a lot of LOVE on our Instagram and will be in store soon!
Copper still seems to be the metal of choice - you will see it in lighting, coffee tables, artworks canisters. Watch this space.
Rugs - rag rugs in some new sizes, the durry rugs will be back and still the super fab price of $39.95. I found a new amazing rag rug in a geometric pattern, which should arrive soon.
Art, Ferwerda Art by Antoinette Murray. We managed to secure this artist and cannot wait for her pieces to arrive. Seriously talented.
Books, I'm most excited about The Whole Pantry by the inspiring Belle Gibson and Jason Grant's newest book. We also have books on gardening, craft, food and design.... all coming in soon. They really do make the most fab Christmas present! (aghhhh can't believe we are already talking about Christmas)!
Loads of great gift ideas for Christmas will be arriving daily from General Eclectic, Me and My Trend and our newest brand Habitat home that specializes in our fav thing....colour!
