island style

leading the way in this style of furniture is Kenneth Cobonpue who draws his inspiration from Cebu and uses material like rattan, abaca and buri amongst others. i would love to design a beach house with his furniture one day.

braja in car accident

i dont know many details but my fellow blogger and very dear friend, brajasevaki was involved in a car accident on the way to the airport, i think she is out of critical condition but her husband is not, lets all pray for their speedy recovery.

cool and quirky

multipot which is a light, cable holder, recharger etc, very cool for hiding all those annoying cables

seat/light from kundalini aptly named asana (meaning seating place in hindi), very quirky.

hermon and hermon

because Australia is so close to all the other islands like Philippines etc, a lot of our furniture/home wares are made in these places, best exemplified by the furniture from hermon and hermon, in my opinion one of the top 5 best furniture shops here. A lot of their stuff is made from natural "islandy" materials like palm leaves, coconut husks, rattan etc. this appeals to me a lot as i grew up with this stuff in fiji.
