In deciding how a room should come together, I like to consider the elements that provide physical and mental comfort during those regular at-home rituals. For me, comfort is also about thoughtfulness, so think ahead and layer your space with textiles your future self will thank you for.
Satisfy your senses by choosing materials in contrasting textures for tactile appeal, pairing woven and velvet cushions with woollen throws, say. Keep them in good nick with regular steaming or gentle washing. This Fisher & Paykel washing machine has an 11kg drum and a Delicate cycle that are brilliant for large or finicky items such as cushion covers, and a Woolmark-certified Wool setting that’s perfect for knits.
Do the right thing
Sometime in the past few decades, price and convenience began to trump quality, and now stores are overflowing with cheap pieces poorly and unethically made from environmentally harmful synthetics. So what’s the real cost?
You might be in the swing of questioning the origins of your clothing, but do you ever wonder who made your sheets? If not, it’s time to let important details such as sustainability and traceability inform your homeware purchases. Do your research, and choose small, local and reputable brands whose production processes are kind to both people and the environment.
As an excellent alternative to washing that saves both water and energy, this washing machine’s Steam Care can help to uphold your principles while caring for well-made textiles; washing less is a way to increase their longevity, keeping them out of landfill. The machine’s ActiveIntelligence™ tech also cleverly adjusts your wash times for maximum energy-efficiency, while its Auto Dose feature intuitively determines the amount of detergent you need, so you never overdo it. Meanwhile, as well as its heat pump condensing
technology designed to effectively dry at textile-friendly low temperatures, the dryer has a class-leading 10-star energy rating.
Age & wisdom
Vintage textiles have a certain charm that adds a graceful patina to an interior, but if you keep these precious pieces stored away for best, you might find they’re musty and creased when you come to use them. Steam Care is the ultimate hack for nipping this in the bud (as well as when you’re styling with contemporary textiles and time is short), making old tablecloths and napkins as good as new, even removing odours.
Meeting the needs of your lifestyle, your favourite pieces and the planet feels good — and so does treating yourself right. Everyday luxuries like organic towels are self-care tools that can really boost your wellbeing. And while you’re using them to care for yourself, the Hygiene cycles of this washer and dryer care for them, killing more than 99.9% of bacteria and reducing allergens. Talk about living well…
Take advantage of this washer and dryer’s new Steam Care feature. It lets you refresh textiles without the need for a full wash cycle.
