The concept is a curated beautiful space showcasing both of their collections alongside an amazing range of other Melbourne-made homewares and it’s well worth checking out.
Felix Furniture and Beeline Design first met while exhibiting alongside one another at a trade show and knew that their furniture worked well together when people kept mistaking their individual stands for a joint one. “We found our styles were quite similar and that our pieces complimented one another really well.” Says Antonia Morrongiello from Felix Furniture.
With the same appreciation for high quality, locally made furniture, the duos joined forces to create Makers Collective in Richmond.
I love their use of blonde timbers, natural leather and pastel tones. The space takes on a gallery feel, with the walls exhibiting original prints from Love Your Space and artworks by Jessie Rigby, who created a collection especially to compliment the furniture ranges. Everything at the Makers Collective is a mix of up-and-coming brands including Rachel Bainbridge resin wares, Hide & Co leather goods, Capra resin pots, Soktas lighting, alongside established names such as, 3Square cushions, Uimi knitwear, and Luum pots. So if you want to update your home, this is the place to visit.
The decision to open up on the once bustling precinct of Bridge Road was an easy one, whilst the strip has seen a number of closures in recent years; “We feel it is going through a regeneration, redefining its identity and we are excited to be a part of it.” Says Antonia.
The Makers Collective Pop Up will be open at 134 Bridge Road Richmond until July.
Hope you get a chance to visit.
