I spotted an interesting lamp, the perimeter floor lamp from Blu Dot, in the latest edition of Belle magazine and went on an internet hunt to find out more. I was delighted to discover it was actually available in Sydney, so I went on a real life hunt to the store.
The store, in Alexandria, has only been open a month although Blu Dot has been selling online in Australia since 2012. In store I met the enthusiastic Brett Conroy who is passionate about their philosophy of creating affordable designer pieces - useful, affordable, desirable is their mantra.
Below are my favourite picks. The Charlie rug ($699) has great colours that will mix easily with other furniture. A good price for its size (approx 1.8 x 1.2).
I really like that hint of pink and grey with the more traditional reds and browns.
The Splash Coat Rack is another good looking piece. At $389 its stylish and practical, great for renters who can't hang a coat rack, and not a huge investment in the dipped look that is so hot right now.
