Customer showcase: May Street Larder July 01 2015, 0 Comments

There's definitely something in the water over at the May Street Larder establishment in East Freemantle, WA, Australia. A buzz over 'thoughtful dining', locally sourced organic produce, seasonal ingredients, a suggestion to wash it down with a Kombucha or a home-made soda perhaps? 




What is a 'larder'? Sounds like old Victorian english that never made it to Australia during the British colonisation. A wall decal in the corner reveals it to us, reminiscent of a dictionary look up during an english lesson "large cupboard or pantry for storing food; a supply of food". It makes their name all the more memorable.

Nostalgic touches are in play; rustic rainbow wooden bench, upcycled fleur de lis tiles, bric-a-brac polished stools. We can agree that it feels tailored, customised and unique. Their identity is strong and present upon first impression. 

No doubt their philosophy would translate to their dishes and produce. In fact, you'll find an abundance of satisfied customer 
regrams over on instagram when you search #maystreetlarder

Customer showcase: Postman's Quarter June 11 2015, 0 Comments

Postman's Quarter is an Australian restaurant located in Thirroul, NSW. A fine example of building refurbishment, exuding a vintage elegance of the 1900's.



It's a common misconception to believe refurbishments are all to do with cogwheels and water pipes (in reference to the industrial era). But it's not just that, it is looking into the history of the building and reviving it, paying homage to it's former glory.

Postman's Quarter was a former post office and bank vault for Commonwealth bank, it's a nice touch to see they retain certain elements that clue us in to the past. Take these reclaimed PO boxes as a reception desk for example.



The interior features herringbone wooden floors, french laced walls, draping red curtains, along with 120 of our glass decanter pendant lights. To think that the building was left unoccupied for three years before the owners saw its potential. We can't deny that we're thrilled and feeling proud to have such visionary customers. We make the product, but it's really the new home where our customers can make the most of them and bring them to life.  

Check their facebook page to see photos of the before and after refurbishments.



And presenting their 'powder room':

 

We're keen to pay a visit next time we head in to Thirroul!

Customer showcase: Shaw and co April 21 2015, 0 Comments

Located in Townsville, QLD, Australia, Shaw and co is a restaurant and bar that warmly welcomes its patrons off Flinders street for a quenching drink or a hearty feed.

A raw and industrial feel, designed by daarc architecture + interiors, pays a tribute to the former glory of the space; the 1913 ‘Alfred Shaw’s Hardware Store’. Exposed beams and panels with materials predominantly timber and rustic metal, inclines us to appreciate the rawness embracing the nostalgia of the past.

The industrial atmosphere is warmed by numerous upcycled elements; the handcrafted wooden stools, use of railway steepers, newspaper clippings on paint peeling walls, the loft like mezzanine. Industrial lighting was used to highlight the rough texture of the existing walls and warm Edison bulbs to colour the venue while maintaining the look of its overall design.

Our 5 head pipe chandeliers are a beautiful compliment to their new home over on the bar at Shaw and co.
