Welcoming Australian furniture company Jardan to Perth with the opening of their new showroom. Modernist hand-made furniture with a sustainable focus.
JARDAN PERTH SHOWROOM
Earlier this month, I went along to the opening of the new Jardan Perth showroom. The Australian furniture company specialises in creating modernist furniture, lighting, and homewares with a focus on sustainability. Known for their stunning Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney showrooms (even used as an MBFWA venue). I am so excited to see them open here in Perth.
Walking into the Peppermint Grove showroom, it did not disappoint. Housed in a thoughtfully adapted sandstone building on Stirling Highway, the space was designed by architect Iva Foschia of IF Architects. Inspired by the west-coast lifestyle, the showroom is filled with the colours, shapes, and patterns native to Western Australia. It made me think of wildflowers, pink salt lakes, the rich vibrant colours of Broome. Not to mention drawn-out sunsets along the sun-worn coast. We are so lucky here with those. From Perth? You know what I’m talking about.
Setting the tone, a floor of swirling terrazzo in varying sizes leads the eye across the open showroom. Creating hints of colour and warmth. Laid out with home-like rooms, the mood is inviting, encouraging you to wander and explore.
THE JARDAN STORY- A FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY
As an Australian family-owned furniture business in operation since 1987, every Jardan piece is crafted to order in Melbourne. Made with care and precision, by hand. The Jardan design team takes inspiration from the relaxed, Australian way of life; expressing contemporary ideas through quality materials. Jardan at its core, strive to reduce their environmental footprint. They make products sustainable throughout the entire lifecycle. How? By using quality local materials, reducing waste, and making furniture that truly lasts.
As you may have come to notice, I am all about shopping mindfully! Across every aspect- be it fashion, beauty, or for the home. Naturally, this was music to my ears. Seriously, can this be more common, please? I’d love more brands to adopt these principles.
The Perth showroom features some of the company’s modernist-inspired pieces. Contemporary tables, modular sofas, textured armchairs, curved sideboards, lighting, homewares, and rugs. Jardan brings its products together with a curation of select pieces from local and international artists.
Personally, I felt drawn to the welcoming low-slung sofas and arm-chairs. Along with the uniquely patterned rugs in muted, soft tones. The bedroom setting stuck joy with a turmeric linen bed setting, perfect in a coastal WA home. Yes, heaven.
THE DETAILS MATTER
Furnishing your home with beautiful, hand-crafted pieces is not lost on me. Thoughtful design and made to last is essential. Our (rented) apartment has a mix of designer and straight-up Ikea furniture. Gotta love it in all it’s flat-packed it-does-the-job glory! Finding forever items is slowly becoming more important. I appreciate the craftsmanship and dedication to beautiful materials.
The Jardan pieces feel both modern and suited to Australian homes. Be it a softly curved sofa, or unique rug, these pieces would be a dream addition to a modern home. Naturally, my wish list is looking long! Have you just created one too?
AT HOME WITH YOU
What has caught your eye? I got quite snap happy on my visit, there were so many pieces to adore. What is your home like? I’d love to learn, as I continue this series of home decor and interiors blog posts.
Do you invest in furniture that is built to last? Or are you staring at flat-pack jobs too? I don’t mind a bit of both. But maybe one day I’ll set up my more of a forever or long term home. That’s something to look forward to. For now, I’m generating ideas, that’s for sure.
