Jason Miller

I adore this 'Seconds' range by Jason Miller. Recently found on the Zuster website, they can also be found at Design Republic. I know what I would love for Christmas, hint hint!

Indian Bicycle Shop

Continuing with my recent affection for vintage bicycles, I had to give these guys a mention. I used to live not far from this little shop in Grey Street St Kila, and my husband and I would often wander past wishing we had one of these bikes. Visit them online at

Felt Bicycles

I no longer own a bike since I realised that I don't really enjoy riding one. However, when I spotted this beauty in a shop window the other day, I could easily change my mind. This gorgeous cruiser will cost you a pretty penny, but you would look so good riding it that none of that matters. See the huge range online at

Minjae Lee

The Cool Hunter has founds some more great talent. Minjae Lee is a young South Korean artist whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you'd like to. It draws you in with its powerful colours, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive.

David Downton

Having recently graced the cover of Vogue's special anniversary edition, David Downton's incredible fashion illustrations have been exposed for all to enjoy. He is a master of his craft, and his amazing portfolio may be viewed at

Bernabei Freeman

Rina and Kelly have been working together since 2000. They have always been obsessed with decoration, the domestic interior and using materials in non-obvious ways. Being industrial designers the two are excited by the challenge of mass manufacture and the modern day factory.

This has translated into a range of modern lighting and furniture that combines "brutal technical precision and delicate sensuality rolled into one". Their work has received several national awards, and been exhibited both locally and internationally, most recently in Zona Tortona at the Milan Furniture Fair, and at the Milan Triennale.

Since the two formed bernabeifreeman, they have always aimed to deliver a high design product, of the best possible quality for the domestic and commercial market. Sustainability and product life cycle has always been part of their design process, right from the concept stage.

Rina and Kelly are always looking for opportunities to collaborate with manufacturers, play with new materials and expand their range both in Australia and abroad. They are inspired by the potential of new design.Check them out at
