9 new homeware pieces we need in our lives immediately

We’re keeping a close eye on the interior scene and have rounded up our top picks from some of our favourite homeware stores. Here’s what we’re lusting after right now

1. Flower power

We love this floral art print by Jane Oldershaw, whose fond memories of her grandma’s garden, along with her rediscovery of nature upon moving from Auckland to idyllic Cambridge, inspired her to start a business. Her beautiful photos of flowers are available as prints, tea towels, greeting cards and more.

2. Bedded bliss

Lovers of linen bedding will fall for the new-season colours that have just dropped at Foxtrot Home. These fresh colours, including ochre and emerald green, evoke the hues of autumn and look amazing when teamed with neutrals. Prices start at $49 for a pair of pillowcases.

3. Cushion crush

You can never have too many cushions, especially when they are as gorgeous as these velvet numbers from Kip & Co. Velvet tassel cushions in dark rose and tobacco come with a feather inner and are ready to adorn your bed or sofa at $135 each from Tea Pea.

4. Magic fingers 

Add a touch of Palm Springs glam to your home with these brass wall decorations called ‘Fingerfilodrendons’. Available in two sizes, the gold leaves appear to float out from the wall. From $64 from BoConcept.

5. What a mug

Start your day with a cuppa in one of Freedom’s new stoneware Kerrigan mugs. Available in four colours, these mugs are just $7.95 each.

6. Tall dark and handsome

Jump on the dark-wood trend with one of these wooden vases designed by Anders Nørgaard for Applicata. Torso is a series of stained oak vases inspired by the body, with each vase including a glass insert for flowers. Available in medium ($69) or large ($76) from Crisp Home.

7. Little gems

These no-maintenance artificial succulents are perfect for those of us who tend to send our living pot plants to an early grave. With the added bonus of cute pots, these are the perfect way to liven up a shelf or table. From $29.99 from Farmers.

8. Wheely lovely

What’s not to love about this retro-style brass and marble drinks trolley? We love its 1960s curves and wheeled brass feet which make it super easy to move around your home. It’s always happy hour somewhere, right? Get your own antique-brass drinks trolley for $999 from

9. Oh aubergine

Me & My Trend have done it again with the release of their new velvet furniture in the most divine shade of aubergine. This is going to be a strong colour for autumn/winter 2018 and looks stunning when combined with black, mustard and wood tones. From chairs and sofas to foot stools and ottomans, there is something for everyone in this collection. Foot stools start at $599 and chairs from $1395.
