Bowl me over...

The heavy clouds and even heavier rains that have been hovering over Adelaide sure have put a dampener on us this week (pardon the pun!). So if they weather has you down in the dumps, take a look at these beautiful lacquer and bamboo bowls that have just arrived. At $39.95 they are an absolute bargain and while the photo doesn't do them justice, the colours will blow you away.

Available both in store and online they are sure to sell quickly, so don't miss out!

Truly Wicker-ed

Huge ornate chests. Neat laundry baskets. Cozy chairs. Garden tee-pees. Handy trays.. All in wonderful wicker and rattan.

If you're looking for a new feature for your home, we say go for wicker and rattan. There is something about a piece of wicker or rattan furniture that has an element of je ne sais quoi. The twisting of each length, the rough textures, and the nautical vibe it sends out has us ooh-ing and ahh-ing everytime.

Large rattan chest... $395.00

Winter warmers...

Doesn't time fly.. it's mid-May already and the customary cold mornings that greet us during these months have already begun. Peeling out of bed on these chilly mornings can often be difficult when stepping onto icy floorboards, so treat your toes to a luxurious rug.

We're excited to have a range of gorgeous rugs in store from Designers Guild, Armadillo and Mokum that will bring colour and texture to your dreary floorboards and help to warm up your little toes.

Big or small, brightly coloured or neutral, there is sure to be a rug to suit every taste and space so be sure to pop in and check out the samples.

Feeling blue...

There's something fabulous about a brightly coloured bowl sitting effortlessly on your dining table or bench. We recently received these gorgeous bright turquoise pieces all the way from Morocco and are quite simply smitten.

The intricate detailing around the edge of the large platter ($129.95) is mesmerising and the deep fruit bowl ($69.95) and handy smaller bowl ($29.95) are an simple way to add colour to an otherwise neutral room.

No more vulnerable vino..

After a long day at work sometimes all you feel like is a glass of wine. How many times have you opened a bottle of your favourite vino before realising you were not going to finish the whole bottle?

Enter winesave.

winesave allows you to enjoy your sneaky glass or two of wine and then pop it away for several weeks after it has first been opened. Containing a pure, inert and odourless gas called argon (which is heavier than air), winesave is applied with a simply one-second spray and pushes the air up and out of the bottle preventing the oxidisation of the wine.

This is a purely natural method to preserve wine that has been tried, tested and approved by some of the industry's most notable international winemakers, and with no propellants, hydrocarbons or additives used.. what's there to lose?

winesave is available in store now!
