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.

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.

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...

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.

So much to see! Winter 2021 at UniqueJun 07, 2021

We've released our Winter 2021 collections and it's a bumper crop of new ranges. Below is a quick run down of what has gone to market. I've also added the dates for our presentation events below.

There are eight - yes eight! - new collections from Arte. And it's not exaggeration to describe them as astounding. There's everything from mother-of-pearl tiles to stunning murals on velvet and raffia - they are show-stoppers! We'll blog about them in detail later in the week. Visit the collection pages HERE.

There are new ranges from Andrew Martin including a striking Peruvian-inspired stripe collection called Condor and a new collaboration with Sarah Paterson.

We've released an in-house upholstery range called Italian Lakes which uses a specially developed recycled yarn made from off-cuts from the fashion industry. We have also released a selection of drapery basics: Charm, Grace and Aurora (coming soon). Also stay tuned for luxury chenilles which will be hitting the market soon.

Last week we announced our new leather supplier - Pavoni Luxury Leathers. Thank you for the great response to these special designs. They are certainly a million miles away from your average run-of-the-mill hides and will add a bespoke element to any interior.

Zimmer + Rohde's Personal Landscapes is another new collection to look out for, particularly if you like mid-century inspired textiles with plenty of texture and understated motifs. See the collection page HERE.


Auckland: Jo, Catherine and Lotte are hosting a presentation session this Thursday at 11:30am. It's not too late to RSVP. Hit the link to RSVP.

Wellington: Jo is hosting two presentations on Thursday 17 June - 10:30am and 1pm. RSVP to bags a spot.

Our Sydney and Brisbane showrooms are hosting OPEN DAYS on Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 June. With presentations and nibbles available throughout the day call in at a time that suits you. Email to RSVP the Sydney event. Email for the Brisbane event.

I'll be posting dates for our other showrooms in the coming days.




Introducing Pavoni!May 30, 2021

Drum roll please!... We'd like to introduce Pavoni Luxury Leathers to you. While not a household name Pavoni is an Italian company who create extremely special hides for brands that ARE household names. Companies like Armani, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Prada, Bottega Veneta and Poltrona Frau have all used Pavoni Luxury Leather. These brands demand not only the best quality but also distinctive hides. And now we're thrilled to make Pavoni's stunning products available to you.

Initially a supplier to the fashion industry, seven years ago Pavoni broadened their focus to include interior design. With the vast majority of their products made in-house they offer short lead-times and the ability to create customised designs and colours. Their products now grace interiors all around the world.

Pavoni have three main collections: 1/ Luxury Leather 2/ Contract + Hospitality and 3/ The Kelly Hoppen Collection. These ranges encompass a HUGE variety of leather. From the softest aniline hides, through to hairy hides, real suede and hand-pieced creations. The Contract and Hospitality range features tough semi-aniline hides that stand up to the demands of Contract interiors such as casinos and resorts. The Kelly Hoppen Collection makes full use of Pavoni's masterful embossing and laser-cutting skills to create striking bespoke hides.

Visit the collection pages HERE to see more of these stunning collections. Our Unique Account Managers will be contacting you about this special company in the coming weeks. They can't wait to show you the range!
