Of all the reasons to visit Australia, shopping for unique home décor is probably low on your list. While pristine beaches and laid-back coastal towns often steal the limelight, the local design scene is fast becoming a top reason to book a flight—or, at least, agree to international shipping.
Perhaps Australia's geographic isolation is part of the reason it's developing such a strong collective of boutique brands. Miles away from heritage designers in Europe and creatives in the States, local ceramicists, carpenters, and furniture designers have forged their own unique aesthetic with local materials like wool and resin, creating products you won't find anywhere else in the world. Ahead, we spotlight just a few of the Australian home décor brands on our radar. Don't stress: Many sell their unique wares online, so you can snap up a one-of-a-kind vase or bedspread before anyone else does.
