IN­TE­RIOR

The new flag­ship Char­lie and Fen­ton home­wares store found in Ar­madale’s iconic Kings Ar­cade fea­tures Aus­tralian de­signed and made brands. Store owner and in­te­rior-tex­tile de­signer Jan­nah Stevens ex­plains that the de­sign style is “bright, painterly and al­ways fun!”. Orig­i­nally hail­ing from By­ron Bay, the now Melbourne based de­signer is fo­cused on bring­ing cus­tomers some­thing dif­fer­ent to what is more widely found in the home­wares mar­ket, ex­plain­ing that, “We are colour ad­dicts and de­cid­edly off-kil­ter in style, we print lim­ited runs and our de­signs are trans- sea­sonal. Our aim is to pro­vide spe­cial, well-made home­wares with­out the price tag.” To brighten up your home this Spring, visit­ing Char­lie and Fen­ton is cer­tainly a must.
