Serious Popcorn

Serious Popcorn // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio Home - creative brands from the lands down underSnack food is generally far from serious – in fact it generally gets a seriously hard time!

Enter Roger Holmes.
The co founder of Stolen Rum and son of generations of corn farmers and you have the recipe for something a bit special. Well certainly special enough for me to want to share considering I am usually deeply allergic to posting on anything food related here!

Last year Roger launched Serious Popcorn – debuting two flavours brewed (brewed?) with corn sourced directly from a straight talking organic farmer from the Hawkes Bay.
The result is snack food with zero baddies. Eg. No artificial fertlizers, no pesticides, no GMO, no dairy, no gluten….
As Roger puts it; welcome to “contemporary corn”.

I’ve been a fan for a while and am very happy to introduce you guys more directly to what is going on here. They’re led by a Serious Bear, they’ve got serious stockists AND can sell direct to you online and I would suggest there is some serious new flavours on the horizon.

Enjoy!!

Sly + Company

Print by Sly & Co. // New Zealand - available online at themarketnz.com // as featured on Studio Home - creative talent from the lands down under

I’ve had one eye on the fresh, graphic style of NZ based Sly + Company for sometime but it was while browsing the latest newsletter from The Market NZ that I spotted some new work and was reminded that I was well overdue to share!

Robert and Louise Sly join their obviously immense creative forces to make art, graphics and illustrated textiles – all with a distinctive modern flavour that is unique to them. I LOVE their largescale prints (particularly this one) and their growing collection of cushions.

Lets not forget those block people below !

Explore their collection at The Market NZ  here.

Perry Davies Bird houses

Perry Davis Birdhouses from Piece-Makers, NZYesterday while cruising the virtual halls of Piece-Makers, I stumbled across these clever and detailed birdhouses by Hawkes Bay artist/designer/maker/gallery owner;  Perry Davies.
I would personally love to actually live in any one of them!

At the bottom of the post you gain an insight into Perry’s process by watching a short but beautiful film by fellow Hawkes Bay creatives,  Brian Culy and Rakai Karaitiana.

Citta – “A Winters Tale”

Citta - A Winters Tale , Winter '14
To be fair guys, this is NOT breaking news! Imagery of the most recent Citta range has been doing the rounds online…and rightfully so. “A Winters Tale” is inspired by the beautiful nordic city of Copenhagan, and once again that close knit design team has poured their ideas across everything you could possibly think of or need in your home – offering another cohesive and down right attractive collection!
So I decided to go for a trawl and check out some of my favourites. Many of these are listed “Coming Soon” but hopefully it gives you an ideas of the vast spectrum of goodness!

I visited the Citta HQ a year ago and learnt a litte about how they approach designing each range. You can check it out here.

Nodi rugs

Nodi Rugs - New Zealand
It’s seriously a great pleasure to be the first to introduce NODI Rugs to all of you !
I got a legitimate prickle of excitement when I first opened the lookbook from designer Olivia Smith… sooooo refreshing to see plush rugs that are innovative, unique and attractive!!

Olivia has travelled extensively to induge her passion for design including studying Textile Design at The European Institute and working for several fabric houses based in Italy.
But India and that soft but persistant idea of creating something on her own crept up on her and off she went after it. She spent 6 months researching hand weaving and tufting techniques, meeting artisans and creating the production base to bring NODI to life.
And now she is back to her homebase of Wellington and ready to share her exciting collection.
Seriously…you’d have to agree NODI is a beautiful addition to the NZ owned design scene!

Wellingtonians, Olivia will have her collection on show at August, 13 Garret Street from the 14th to 18th of Feb. She would love to see any of you there and it would be a great opportunity to check the rugs out in person as she is still at the beginnings of her hunt to connect with like minded stockists.

I just want to say good luck Olivia! And it is my total aim to one day own one of these lush creations!
