Friday 5

Happy ‘almost’ weekend! We have five very cool finds for you today; including a couple of ideas for Christmas gifts and two online stores we know you’ll love.

You may remember we featured the festive decals from this store a couple of weeks ago in our Christmas decor week, but Attk72 also create some very cool homeware pieces as well.

We LOVE their Antler flags, stonewash leather bunting, and fab tea towels.
Visit their store here.

Billy Heckenberg – Texta Cushions

Can cushions be sexy, we think so especially with their racy zips up the front! These cool texta print cushions are by Sydney label Billy Heckenberg have a bit of a turkish kilim feel to them with their geometric designs.

‘Texta’ is what us kiwis refer to as a vivid or felt and if you look closely they truly do look like someone has coloured them in with felt pen – tres cool.
