editor’s letter

Nothing is as I thought it would be. In my youth, particularly my 20s (when all of our style indicators are set in place), it was the 1990s and, like everyone around me at the time, I was mad for a type of Japanese-style industrial minimalism. It was a thing. The slicker the better, as I believed that good design required a generous dash of chilly austerity. And so I thought that my own kitchen style was set. But things change and my worship at the altar of minimalism started to erode as soon as I started to cook properly. All the prepping, ritual and messy alchemy that goes into conjuring slow and delicious lunches didn’t feel right on a cold, sleek workbench. I yearned for generous, colourful French cookware, and…

grounded rugs

A desire to merge art with nature by honouring the ancient craft of weaving is at the core of Byron Bay-based Grounded Rugs, a business founded by former magazine staffer Melinda Bourdain, who was inspired to do so by her late mother. Explain how Grounded Rugs was born I’ve always had an intrinsic love for interiors and styling, which I get from my late mother, and when she passed I decided to launch Grounded as – like a lot of people who lose someone close to them – life is too short to not absolutely love what you do every day. I began in early 2018 with a solo exploratory textiles trip to India. Our first showroom launched on October 8, 2018, which is also my mother’s birthday. While I didn’t…

st rose

If you haven’t yet heard of St Rose, now is the time to get acquainted. Recently nominated as a finalist for Indie Fragrance of the Year – one of the industry’s top honours for olfactory works of art – at the Fragrance Foundation Awards, founder Belinda Smith is making big waves in the world of scent. “The St Rose journey started from my own experience of hunting for something I couldn’t find. There were very few clean and transparent fragrance brands on the market that also appealed to my preference for artisanal perfumes,” she says. Founded by Belinda in 2018, the St Rose collection currently consists of six gender-neutral eau de parfums that contain 97 per cent natural – and 80 per cent organic – ingredients that are cruelty-free and manufactured…

Why we want it The European-designed Piano Coat Rack by PER/USE truly is the epitome of functional art. Creating a visual impression reminiscent of piano keys, this piece is a coat rack like you’ve never seen before.

Where to put it This is the perfect addition to your hallway or entry, but can work in any living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom or even pool house. What Living Edge loves about it It’s sculptural and quirky and, despite being a statement piece, won’t overwhelm a space due to its neutral wood palette and slim profile. Available in Oak (natural oiled or…
