H&D Hotlist #053: New design products, furniture and home accessories
How would you like to lounge on a sofa made by an award-winning Australian sofa maker? A made-in-Australia collection comprising seven designs – including Conrad, a low and modular three-seater, and Bella, a Nordic-inspired sofa with brass-finished legs – is now in Harvey Norman. Elegant and clad in famed Warwick fabric, each sofa has a kiln-dried hardwood frame. Each sofa comes with a 10-year warranty.
The made-in-Australia collection retails from $999 and is exclusively available at Harvey Norman Millenia Walk flagship superstore.
If you are looking for artisanal handcrafted pots, Potta Plantta might be the answer. This e-store collaborates with and supports artisans from South-east Asia, particularly those who engage in sustainable practices. You’ll find rattan stands, ceramic pots shaped as cubes and bowls, as well as quirky, limited edition planters.
There is a slow yet noticeable rise in interest in analogue radios, and we embrace it. The Muzen On The Road series of portable speakers features an eye-catching colour palette! See the next slide for a more traditional design.
The Muzen OTR metal radio retails for $139 and is available at Analogue+.
The Kubo by Magno Design takes retro to another level with its handcrafted pinewood body and mahogany knobs.
Magno Design’s Kubo wooden radio retails for $289, and is available at Starchie.
Instead of buying a large sofa, how about expanding your seating only when your family grows? The Castella sofa by Starchie starts with a one-seater and, using an X-frame system, can be extended with modular sofas and armrests. This smart concept is part of Starchie’s first furniture collection “Urban Living”, which has been designed for compact spaces. Now that’s what we call thoughtful.

Ergonomic chairs have largely been unstylish, except for a few brands that’ve done it right.Flokk is one of them. The Norwegian manufacturer boasts seven brands, all carrying elegant and comfortable workplace furniture. For instance, RBM carries minimalist and elegant pieces in pastel hues. In a show of confidence, it even has a try- before-you-buy campaign.
