This is the gorgeous new "Magnolia" store which my friend Robyn has been at the helm of for the past 10 or more years! If you are a Brisbane resident you will know Magnolia ...... it has been an institution in the James Street precinct heading the way with interiors and homewares! They have just moved into a huge new warehouse style premises just near Jocelyn's Provisions and Porter's Paints and it is stunning! Robyn and I have been discussing interiors for years and as designers it is always wonderful to talk with colleagues and like-minded souls. In this photo is Sarah who works with Robyn and also Ned who is Robyn's son .....
These are the type of gorgeous lampshades and bases you will find at Magnolia ...... the shade is Designer's Guild and the base Robyn sourced in New York.
Robyn travels world-wide to source new, different and beautiful product. I recently used a set of ikat lampshades for a client of mine that were made from fabric Robyn found at a Turkish bazarre.
The customized shelving (which Robyn designed) is gorgeous holding wonderful treasures .... look at the pink plush ottomans!
Congratulations Robyn and all the Magnolia girls on a fabulous new premises for their design shop!
