Celebrate diversity with The Fusionist!Sep 24, 2021

It's here and it's amazing! The Fusionist is Carlucci's extraordinary 2021 release. Their designer's started with the following question... "What happens when punk meets baroque." So it's no surprise that this is an edgy, eclectic collection, full of dynamism and irreverence. From tartan to chinoiserie, from moiré to felted wool this inspiring range throws out the rule book and gives full rein to individual creativity.

Click HERE to see the brochure.

There are 48 designs in a rich colour palette and diverse range of textures. And being Carlucci you can count on luxurious velvets and vintage inspired designs. Here is a small selection of what The Fusionist offers. Visit the collection page HERE to see more of this divine collection.

Call your Unique Account Manager if you'd like to see this fabulous collection.

Spring is in the airSep 15, 2021

The last few weeks have been a challenging time for many of us! A huge thank you for your patience and understanding. Many, but not all, of your orders can be supplied under our level 4 restrictions so please call our Sales Service team if you have any queries regarding delivery - AU 1800 145855 and NZ 0800 86478. They will let you know the latest status on your orders. Fingers crossed for Level 3 next week.

Moving onto more fun things... our Spring releases are just around the corner and we can't wait to show you (whether online or in person!). We have new collections from Carlucci, JAB, Houlès, Arte and our own stock designs. Stay tuned to all our channels (instagram, facebook and this site) for gorgeous new products. In the meantime, stay safe and take care.






Covid update for August...Aug 18, 2021

As you will be aware New Zealand is currently under a strict level 4 lockdown. This of course affects our day-to-day operations, impacting our Australian and New Zealand-based clients in slightly different ways...

For our Australian Clients: Unique stock and Textilia orders will be processed in our system but not despatched until we are at level 3 (Wednesday 18 August at this stage). All other orders remain unchanged and can still be delivered direct to you if you have a safe contactless area. When placing your order please let us know of any change of delivery address.

While our Melbourne and Sydney showrooms are closed to visitors our Account Managers are on-site for contactless "click & collect" of cuttings and samples. Please phone or email ahead and advise a nominated time to collect. They are also happy to pop samples in the post or courier items for those further afield. Please note that we ensure that these click and collect deliveries comply with state regulations.

Our Brisbane showroom is open - yay! Steph and her team can't wait to see you!

For our New Zealand clients: Stock orders will be processed in our system but not despatched until we are at level 3. Arte, Hooked On Walls, Chivasso and Carlucci orders can still be delivered direct to you if you have a safe contactless area. Again, please let us know on placement of order of any change of address. All other brands will be processed in our system but held until the restriction level is reduced.

Our New Zealand Account Managers are on the end of the phone! They would love to help you with any queries and can send images and inspiration as per usual.

Our Sales Service team is working remotely and looking forward to answering your calls.

Please note that you can redirect your packages via their tracking number. Call our Sales Service team for more information AU 1800 145855 and NZ 0800 86478.

Hopefully this is just a short sharp lockdown and we are fully up and running again this time next week.

Please be safe and take care.

Designer Swatch Box - start your collection...Jul 13, 2021

For the last two years we've been making A5 sized 'Designer Swatches'. They're a user-friendly format for designers who don't have the space for hangers, something small to fit in a file or a reference library.

Now we have made a custom storage box for these swatches...


Isn't it smart?!

Of course we only make a limited number of these swatches as new releases go to market. Our Sales Team is allocated a set number of swatches they can place with their clients. Please let them know if you are interested in having a Swatch Box and any designs in particular you'd like to put in it - drapery, upholstery, outdoor fabric etc. Over time your Designer Swatch Box will fill up with useful go-to designs that you can pull out anytime.


Floors - new at UniqueJul 09, 2021

Here's something new for our Australian clients... Did you know that we sell rugs? Beautiful, ethnically made rugs of all kinds, colours and sizes. Below is a quick run-down of the selection...

First up is PURE, a collection of handmade, natural fibre kilims. JAB has taken this humble classic to another level with 5 different weaves, 196 fabulous colours and an extensive selection of bindings and fringe options. With PURE you can design a kilim to fit your specifications perfectly. See the collection page HERE. See the brochure HERE.

As the name suggests CALMA is a range of pared-back, uber chunky rugs using New Zealand wool. The combination of texture and the natural variation of the wool creates a stunning but unobtrusive element for your floors. See the collection page HERE. See the brochure HERE.

Calma 2

Perfect for both indoor and outdoors PATIO handwoven rugs are made using recycled PET plastic. The result is hard wearing but soft to the touch - and tough enough to withstand the outdoors. See the collection page HERE. See the Patio brochure HERE.


Patio 2

URBAN JUNGLE is a curated collection of 46 rug designs from six celebrated European designers. The range is broad; from ombré hexagons to 'urban' camouflage, from street art to architecture - these designs are inspired by the energy and built environment of a modern metropolis. See the brochure HERE.

SECRETS is all about re-creating the textures of nature, whether a shimmering lake or dappled light on leaves. The yarn is a blend of linen and viscose which has a beautiful lustrous quality. See the brochure HERE.


Finally you may have spotted the fabulous rugs in Chivasso's marketing images like these ones...

GR 2

These two designs, Cottage and Crossover, can be custom made to your requirements in 100% pure wool. Ask your Account Manager about the colours available in this Garden Route range.

It's important to add that these rugs fully comply with the fair trade organisation STEP. More about STEP can be seen HERE.

Contact your Unique Account Manager for more information about these stunning rugs. Please note that these rugs are only available to our Australian clients.
