If there’s been a silver lining to the pandemic, it is the improved target on Australian made goods. Suffice to say, the appetite for regionally manufactured products has never ever been higher and it is what encouraged the launch of Studio xox – a boutique rest room ware retail store situated in Sydney’s Japanese Suburbs that has an online presence too.

Major the Australian built item line-up is Nood Co who is celebrated for its vibrant, bold and adventurous colour profiles. “Nood Co is wholly redefining the way that concrete is made use of in household and professional design and style,” states Jonathan.
Faucet Strommen is an additional locally designed product stocked at the studio – its photo voltaic-run manufacturing unit in rural Victoria creates guide-totally free eco brass and is a leader in tapware. “From utilising new products like guide free of charge eco™ brass to developing top-quality merchandise, Faucet Strommen is an industry chief for Australian tap ware,” says Jonathan.

“We’ve also obtained Lindsey Wherrett Ceramics much too. Handcrafted in Tasmania by Lindsey herself, each individual piece is highly sought immediately after and is regarded a piece of art,” says Jonathan.
As for the studio itself, it was released out of a wish to give shoppers an inspiring, immersive practical experience. Made by Mia Lake Interiors, the beautiful Sydney studio place is light and vivid and encouraged by the neutral and coastal influences of the Mediterranean.
