Creative workshop Pop & Scott recently opened their showroom in Northcote, Victoria.. you might recognise them for their hand-painted pots which are so popular all pots are on backorder, Woah! Other than their crowd-pleasing pots, Pop & Scott make beautiful custom made and hand-painted furniture as well. Using recycled or sustainably sourced wood from Australia, their furniture with it's clean and simple design would fit nicely into any home. We're sure it'll be a piece that would be around for a long long time.

"Every single piece is unique and handmade with love." Little Upside Down Cake curates a selection of beautiful handmade products, ranging from ceramics to leather products, by a group of Portuguese makers. Each of the pieces are created in very small scale edition and celebrates every single imperfection of the creating process. The handwork and passion that goes behind handcrafting each piece is remarkable... that when you use it you can feel the hands of who made it!

Urbe is a family of tables, chairs and stools by Italian designer, Pasquale Alison. Inspired by the different cities in Italy, the collection of furniture is characterized by different prints of the Italian cities of Rome, Naples, Milan, Ponza and Capri. The tops of the pieces depict maps of the different cities and come in different colours. Great pieces that help combine our love for furniture and travel!

"Less is More" - I think everyone is familiar with this saying. This is also the philosophy behind Saniyo. Their aim is to design simple, socially responsible and functional pieces for everyone to enjoy.
Their first collection "Gathering" is a partyware set that includes cups, plates and even a nested condiment set. Taking inspiration from the solar system, they wish to remind users that as humans we are part of something bigger, the universe. Remember that in this big world with so many things and people and animals, we should cherish the ones nearest and dearest to us - family and friends.
We thinks that a great reason to have a party, don't you? Celebrate life, everyday!

"Immediate acceptance of the presented objects is not the purpose of our work." Studio Roex presents to us pieces that make our minds work. Using familiar materials and objects and presenting them in a new and unconventional way. " We want to increase people's awareness of what they see, heightening their ability (and desire) to understand it."
A furniture and product design studio based in Amsterdam, Studio Roex's projects will definitely make you rethink the way you view the objects you see and use on a daily basis. Can this spoon I use to eat my cereal be just a food delivery system or can it be something else too? Hmm..
