We call it Friday Favourites, and the name says it all, really. Every Friday, we have a little bit of a rave about five of our favourite new products for the week. Consider this your insider’s guide to the latest and greatest goodies to arrive here at Peter’s.
The thing is, with last Friday’s announcement of our upcoming event with the South Sydney Rabbitohs’ Burgess Brothers (which has since reached capacity) we were so excited, we didn’t post our Friday Favourites as usual.
So this week, we’re making up for it with a deluxe double edition of Friday Favourites! Ten of our favourite new products, handpicked just for you. Enjoy!
With this being a deluxe edition of Friday Favourites, what better way to start than with Dutchdeluxes! Featuring products made by hand in Eindhoven in the Netherlands, from all-natural materials like wood and leather, Dutchdeluxes is a brand that’s serious about quality and craftsmanship. Take this leather apron, for instance. It’s rugged and hardwearing – perfect for protecting you from the heat and mess of the kitchen. As the years pass, the leather’s appearance will change too, telling its own unique story. The range also includes oven gloves and chopping boards – make sure you take a look.
Revel in the elegant simplicity of IVV’s stunning Infiore Vase. It’s so straightforward, with its uncomplicated pattern of intersecting lines, its near-circular shape and its dreamy tones of light blue – but combine all these simple elements and you get one spectacular vase! In fact, the Infiore Vase doesn’t even need flowers to make a statement.
New from England’s dinnerware specialists, Wedgwood, Vibrance breaks all the rules. It combines four bright colours, bold stripes, exuberant floral prints and touches of genuine, 22-karat gold to create dinnerware that’s not afraid to stand out. Team it up with a crisp white tablecloth for maximum drama.
Riedel is celebrating a milestone, and naturally, celebrating in style. The new Sommeliers collection raises a glass to 260 years of Riedel glassware, and represents the height of Riedel design. If you’re a true wine connoisseur, Sommeliers is the ultimate wine experience. Click here to take a look at the whole Sommeliers range.
We know we go on (and on) about Orla Kiely here on the Peter’s Blog all the time, but there’s a Really Good Reason why she’s one of our favourite designers. Many reasons, in fact! Take, for instance, the soft colours and retro design of Orla’s Multi Flower Quilt Cover Set. When it comes to mid-century style, no one else does it quite like Orla Kiely. Find out for yourself why we’re so obsessed…
Whoever said there’s no such thing as a modern classic obviously hasn’t seen Rivadossi’s Classic Cutlery Set. It’s cutlery at its most sophisticated. Each handle is made from glossy black resin, decorated with a vintage-look embellishment around the collar. With six knives, forks, spoons and teaspoons in each set, there’s enough to go around. They’re also dishwasher safe, so cleaning up isn’t a hassle. Made in Italy, this elegant cutlery set deserves a place on your table…even if you’re just having spag bol.
Talking of Italy, say buon giorno to the Vespa Alarm Clock. Whether you’re fortunate enough to own a Vespa, or you’re still saving up for one, this very cool alarm clock is bound to get your engine revving every morning. Designed in Italy (of course) and absolutely oozing with retro style, the Vespa Alarm Clock is the most stylish way to wake up.
Ask any writer and they’ll tell you – notebooks don’t need to be pretty, they just need to be tough. With a spine designed to cope with anything, including being bent backwards, the Flexbook Notebook is a writer’s dream. It’s tough, but it’s pretty too; available in a range of cool colours and sizes to suit every bag, backpack and satchel. It’s everything a writer needs in a notebook.
We love copper tones. We also love scarf weather. And we definitely love brilliant ideas that make life easier. This Scarf Hanger combines all of these things! Rather than letting your scarf collection take over a drawer, use this shiny copper hanger to keep your scarves, belts and more organised and hanging right where you can see them.
Meet Rosalie, Adele, Monique, Cecilia and Gigi. They’re Mor’s latest fragrances – and they’re about to become your new best friends! New from Australia’s own Mor, the Mon Amie collection includes body milk, hand cream and fragrance mist available in five scents. Choose your favourite and surround yourself with it. We love everything about this new range from Mor and we think you’ll love it too.
Phew! Thanks for reading our Deluxe Edition of Friday Favourites. We hope you found something you love. Next week on the blog, we’ll have the photos and video from our Yia Yia’s Kitchen Secrets event with Sydney grandmother, Mary Mitropoulos…and plenty more. Until then, enjoy your Friday night!
