Andrew Martin goodness in threesOct 14, 2018

It's been a while since our last blog post. This time of year is always a blur with school holidays and the run-in to [deep breath] Christmas. We've been busy finalizing our last product releases of the year which includes a stylish outdoor/indoor collection, divine wide-width draperies, chunky upholsteries and new collections from Arte and Hooked On Walls. I'll be blogging about these in the coming weeks as they go to market. But what I can write about now are the superlative new releases from Andrew Martin: Kit Kemp, Gobi and Japan.

The rumors of an Andrew Martin / Kit Kemp collaboration had us seriously excited and the results are stunning. Using whimsical folk art motifs the collection is utterly charming and a touch mysterious. Its dusky colours include  sage greens, blues and pinks, with bursts of brighter, edgier hues. The collection includes five wallpaper designs, including a magnificent multi-paneled design. See the collection page HERE.



Gobi is another Andrew Martin release with all the classic elements you would expect: a mix of exotic and tribal patterns, perfect muted pastel colours and elephants! See the Gobi collection page HERE.



Finally we have something for fans of sophisticated lacquered walls. Japan is a collection of extra glossy wallpaper available in 24 stunning colours. I love how Andrew Martin has used contrasting colours and stripes in a number of their shots. Check out the collection HERE.



Sample books are winging their way to our showrooms this week. And keep an eye out for your invitation to our upcoming presentation events and open days. This Wednesday our Sydney showroom is hosting an Andrew Martin preview day - check your inbox for more info.


We've been inspired by Abstract ExpressionismOct 04, 2018

If you're a fan of Abstract Expressionism then check out our new exclusive stock print 'Expression'. It's a striking painterly design with gestural lines and blocks of colour - good enough to frame. The basecloth is a beautiful linen suitable for light domestic upholstery, drapery and accessories. There are five colourways which I've posted below in all their glory. They run from gentle neutrals to outrageous pinks and oranges...











Here's a cushion of the Azure colourway from our Auckland Showroom...


Call into one of our showrooms to see a sample of Expression.

This week at UniqueSep 03, 2018

This Thursday is a busy day for our Queensland and South Island branches. The famous - or should that be infamous! - Industry on Arthur is on. From 4pm we'll be in full presentation mode, showing our latest collections and looking forward to seeing you. And please remember to bring some cash: We're collecting for QLD farmers who are in dire drought conditions. It would be much appreciated.
