Little bit obsessed with…mirrors

Posted by on Oct 7, 2014 in blog, design, news, products | No Comments

Ideal for reflecting light and creating the illusion of space in a room, mirrors are the perfect accessory for transforming to look and feel of your home. We’ve been going Pinterest mad with a stack of beautiful interior images featuring the most gorgeous mirrors; from gilded antiques to modern geometrics. We also are loving these round copper-framed mirrors which are in store now.MIRROR729e04fbb196f7539a5bf327313be370 8e4ac7b1-1857-4a4f-8780-c78f7f062651621410d4037278aa233cd2d63fed80a6 c1928f246d5f0432b5bec6c00784b9ac


The Cross Street Project

Posted by on Oct 7, 2014 in blog, design, news | No Comments

We’re excited to be a collaborator on The Cross Street Project with C+M studio and a great bunch of other local artists, designers and retailers.

In a nutshell, The Cross Street Project is a concept created by C+M Studio whereby a stunning, newly renovated Bronte apartment designed by C+M Studio is not only for sale, but is also a completely shoppable space.

What does that mean? Well, basically you can:

Buy The Cross Street apartment empty;
Buy the apartment with everything in it,
OR shop the amazing items that fill the space, including lighting and accessories from The Design Hunter.

There will also be workshops and events held throughout the campaign. Interesting idea, right? Open for three weeks only, The Cross Street Project is about everything we love – creativity, good food, community and beachside living!

Unit 1, 13 Cross Street, Bronte NSW.

Open to the public on weekends, 25th October – 9th November.

Saturday – 9:30am until midday + 1:30pm to 5:30pm.
Sunday – 11am until 5pm.

We were really lucky to have the very talented and enthusiastic Laura Menzies intern with us recently. This clever young student from the Whitehouse Institute of Design assisted us with a range of tasks from merchandising, sourcing fabrics, website updates and other administrative tasks and even grabbing coffees. Her styling skills really shine through in this shoot that she put together with another student as part of her major work. Featuring a bunch of beautiful pieces from The Design Hunter, this shoot gives insight into Laura’s style.

This year we’re excited to be participating in the Garage Sale Trail which sweeps the nation on Saturday, October 25th.

Garage Sale Trail has grown from a local idea started in Bondi into a truly national event with over 300 000 people involved! It’s all about reuse and reducing waste. It’s about considering what and how we consume but doing it in a fun and social way. In Waverley and Bondi Junction alone there are over 400 registered Garage Sales, including us and a bunch of other great stores along Bronte Road, including Dear September and Table Tops in a Box.

From 10-5pm you will find some amazing pieces of ex-showroom and ex-styling stock at up to 70% off! So don’t forget to include us on your treasure trail!

Little bit obsessed with…Marble

Posted by on Oct 5, 2014 in blog, design, news, products, store | No Comments

Splashbacks, sinks, walls, floors, counter tops and shelves – all perfect places for the timeless beauty of marble. If you’re keen to invest in quality for your home, you cant go past marble for its durability, strength and enduring elegance.  You can also add a little luxe to each room in your your home with marble accents in homewares and furniture.

Little Local Secrets….The Charing Cross Hotel

Posted by on Sep 21, 2014 in blog, design, news | No Comments

The Charing Cross Hotel, or ‘Charo’ as it is affectionately known, has been around since 1857. Over the last few years we’ve popped in once or twice for after-work bevvy or two, but it wasn’t until the recent unveiling of their stunning refurbishments that we can truly call ourselves regulars. Lunches, dinner with the kids, drinks with the girls, client meetings,  you name it, the Charo is now where it’s at. We recommend the Charo Burger from the Bar Menu. See you there!

The Design Hunters at Great Dane

Posted by on Sep 21, 2014 in blog, design, news | No Comments

Last week The Design Hunters were invited to see the unveiling of the new Great Dane showroom designed by McCartney Design. Simple, modern and luxe are the first three words that spring to mind when describing this space, which is filled with incredible original Scandinavian furniture and lighting designs. In particular we were drawn to the Knot chairs in white, which, as their name suggests, feature an intricate knotted detail on the back and arm rests. We also have been long time fans of the Baklava Ceiling Lamps by Claesson Koivisto Rune, which are made from layers of soft fabric and would add a beautiful glowing softness to a bedroom. The picture below really doesn’t do them justice!










An afternoon with Signature Prints

The Design Hunter team was recently invited to go behind the scenes at well known fabric and wallpaper supplier, Signature Prints, and be inspired by the multi faceted and surprising life of textile designer, Florence Broadhurst. We even rolled up our sleeves and had a go at creating our very own screenprint.

Now that Spring has sprung, we are all excited to reinvigorate our outdoor spaces and prepare for outdoor dinner parties this holiday season. If your garden, courtyard or balcony is in need of some love and attention, simply follow Adam and The Design Hunter on Instagram, regram your fave outdoor image with the hashtag #thedesignhunter and #adamrobinson and go into the draw to win a design consultation with Adam! The winner will be announced on Instagram on September 30th.
