For the last month or so, Jacob and I have been researching patterned pots to house a fiddle leaf fig in the corner of our living room. All the ones we found online were quite pricey once the shipping fees were added. We resorted to looking at some local homewares shops, as a lot of our research on instagram suggested certain boutique style homewares shops would stock different pots. With that challenge in mind, on the way home from our holiday at Turtle Beach Resort, we did a quick google search for Gold Coast Homewares and came across this post from Mum Little Loves. If you’re looking for the best homewares shops on the Gold Coast, this post is the one to read. Today, I’m going to share with you three of these homewares stores that are located side by side. They were perfect for us to visit with our girls in tow. There is nothing worse than getting in and out of cars when visiting stores with kids.
The first shop we entered was Village which had a fabulous collection of tribal, eclectic homewares. I didn’t get any photos in this store, but here is a selection of photos from their Instagram account to give you a feel for the store. I stopped by the black and copper candle holders because they looked elegant grouped together and teamed with other batek patterned ornaments. Village was the first store we walked into and was in between The Beach Furniture store and Biku.
After Village, we entered Biku and I was drawn by all the copper homewares. Such a great collection of homewares and furniture on display. My eyes caught two cushions that were in the sale section, but my attention was quickly drawn to my girls who didn’t like to stay in a section too long. I ended up buying the two cushions as they were originally $125 reduced to $45 and they suit our living room perfectly.
The Beach Furniture store had a lot of handmade, rustic and beach style pieces that didn’t necessarily suit our home. Except I did walk away with a lantern which I have converted into planter to sit on our coffee table outside. Will share the details about that project on another post.
Unfortunately we didn’t find our pot, but I did buy a few items that I didn’t realize I needed. 🙂
If you’re looking for a nice morning out, head to Bundall and visit these stores. The styling is gorgeous. I may have gone home and wished I bought more!
