Last week The Designory team were invited to explore Globe West’s new showroom displays and view their entire Autumn Collection for the first time. Treated with plenty of sweet and savory treats and with coffee in hand- we began wandering around seeing everything they had on offer. Globe West has been in the industry for quite sometime, being originally Melbourne based, their Sydney showroom located in Alexandria has given Sydney-siders a chance to feel and touch their furnishings for the first time. Their collections have become incredibly design focused and many Sydney designers (ourselves included) have been sitting up to pay attention.
The first thing we noticed from their new pieces was a focus on plush, touchable textiles including velvet and leather. Used across a range of sofas and armchairs they have winked at a retro look but kept it feeling modern- perfect for Australian homes.
The Aura Neptune Rug above in metal was instantly a favourite. The combination of bamboo silk and cotton made it lustrous and soft to the touch but the size was also a huge draw-card, 260 x 340 cm is perfect for most living spaces. The composition of suptle tones of blue, grey and cement also helped it to pick up the tones within the surrounding velvet sofas- keeping the look cohesive but not too matchy-matchy.
We also loved the use of clean lines in their furniture but without losing a sense of fun and whimsy. Introducing the splashes of emerald tones like green and flashes of pink keeps things feeling fresh and new. The Taj Round metal coffee table (above) was also a standout- brass tones are not going anywhere anytime soon and this is a great way of introducing the tone to your home.
