Retail therapy...for us designers

Fortunately for us....but unfortunately for our blog readers we have been sooo busy we have neglected you...sorry!

In the last few months we have completely a gorgeous retail giftware store, another retail store documentation complete ready for construction and one more we are working through as I type.
It is true to say we are really loving retail design at the moment.

Quirky Cow Gifts opened recently & given is location of the seaside town of Kiama we wanted to avoid the common ‘Beachy’ theme preferring to focus on the history of the building (150 years old) and bring out its former beauty. Our clients wanted a sophisticated store with a Quirky spin....but not too crazy :)
Using reclaimed timber from a nearby farming property for the flooring, shelving and counter, this store has a real claim to the area, and little notes around the store explain the history. With an amazing feature of pressed tin as the backdrop for the store, enticing you up the old railway sleeper stairs to explore some more. The plasterboard has been removed from the buildings former use as a real estate, and the 150 year old bricks are exposed as a stunning backdrop to the products Sandra & Arthur have for sale...a hug variety of locally made, never seen before items, including their own range of teas.... and what a range, try the Chocolate & Truffle, its devine.

So much else going on but best get back to work...
