From Jen’s desk: what’s new in homewares January 2024

In this new monthly feature, Jen dives into her inbox to bring you her curation of the latest and greatest in homewares, furniture and renovation products.

Kip & Co x Kaz Morton lamps

Two of my faves have collaborated to create three gorgeous handmade lamps and this one, Tart It Up, is so good it’s not funny! NEED! Immediately! A bold and textural statement piece, featuring a ceramic clay base and hand moulded paper mache shade in a red and blue tartan on a pale pink. $549.

A curvy new rug from Miss Amara

Coming in three sizes, this super soft bean-shaped rug looks looks much more expensive than it is! Starting at $749, the Vanni Solid Cream Wool Rug is a fun design piece, handmade in India from 90% wool.

A good-looking moisture absorber (seriously!)

Poor indoor air quality, caused in part by dampness and mould, is recognised globally as a common problem and a major cause of ill health. The Absodry Duo Family Moisture Absorber is a surprisingly stylish moisture-absorbing solution designed to efficiently pull excess moisture from the air and prevent mould and bad odours.

Designed and manufactured in Sweden using over 94% recycled plastic and featuring a Scandinavian look and feel, it will blend seamlessly into your room, looking more like a bluetooth speaker! It comes in blue, grey and green and includes 600g of moisture-absorbing crystals, capable of lasting up to three months. Absodry Moisture Absorbers are refillable, and feature an easy-to-read liquid indicator and drainage hole for easy emptying, making them an eco-friendly option for households. 

Absodry Moisture Absorbers are $34.95 (refills $14.95) and available at Bunnings Warehouse.

Two new additions to Greg Natale’s decor range

Interior designer Greg Natale is announcing the release of a new collection of bowls to expand his range of marble accessories. These carved vessels are crafted from one of four types of luxurious natural stone and feature an elegant scalloped edge. Italian for wave, Onda is a design that presents a playful dichotomy between soft fluid curves and the solidity of raw marble. Use the bowls as serving vessels or simply appreciate their design as a decorative piece. $645 each.

After the incredible response Greg received upon first revealing the Visage design at the international design fair Maison&Objet in Paris last year, he is releasing his statement vase in three stylish colourways—striking White, artisanal Sand and sophisticated Sage. Splashed with painterly face profiles, Visage plays up the fanciful personae of London’s 1980s Blitz Kids and their postmodern remix of art-historical motifs. With shades of Bowie, Cocteau, Matisse and Picasso, the stylised silhouettes zigzag across the glazed ceramic, enlivened with expressive brushstrokes outlined in gold. $380 each.

Sheet Society baby and kids linen

Leading Australian bedding brand, Sheet Society, have officially expanded their kids and baby collection featuring sizes that range from bassinet to double in 100% nature fibres with hues that both you and your mini will love.

Bringing the same customised sleep experience but with a mini-me twist, the collection features butter-soft 100% cotton and ultra-breathable French flax 100% linen in Sheet Society’s best-selling prints and colours across fitted Sheets, quilt covers and pillowcases. Complimenting the range are travel basics featuring travel cot waterproof mattress protectors and fitted sheets that actually fit, available to purchase separately or as a bundle.

“The real point of difference of our kids and baby collection is that the entire range is on-par with Sheet Society’s dedication to premium quality, fit and fabrication. Each piece is made from 100% natural fibres that are soft but breathable in all seasons and designed to get better with every wash. No cartoon prints or graphics, just chic sheets,” says Hayley Worley, co-founder and co-CEO. “
