Mattress Lords Koala Launch New Homewares Range

Watch out IKEA. Australia’s home furniture brand Koala just announced a new homewares range that will have homeowners issuing eviction notices to their previous furnishings in favour of this fresh look. Not only does the new range provide an updated look, it does so responsibly, using certified Responsible Wool.

If you’re wondering exactly what is in this range, Koala came up with some creative names for their products. The Beach Bum Cushion is pretty descriptive of the retro embroidered deigns of surfing koalas and cockatoos with native floral motifs on this cushion. The Bush Walk Cushion has a monochrome textured design on a woven jacquard pillow inspired by the bark of the gum tree. Australia’s coastal landscapes were the inspiration for the Sand Dune Throw, which comes in a curvy black and white pattern.

The Rockpool Throw is a nice addition with a reversible design and tassel edges. Three rugs round out the range. First, the Shear Beauty Rug, which is a woven rug made from responsibly sourced wool. The Shear Bliss Rug is a hand tufted rug of the same wool and features a wave design. Finally, the Bottlebrush Rug is made from recycled plastic bottles and comes in two sizes and four colours. Pricing is also tempting, with the cushions coming in at $70 to $100, the throws for $80 to $200, and the rugs for $280 to $1,400.

“With homewares, we want to celebrate Koala’s uniqueness whilst doing something meaningful and timeless for the brand,” says Alexandra Owen, Koala’s design director. “We’ve created a real sense of something special you can’t get anywhere else, with all colors and material finishes inspired by the Australian landscape, from outback red dirt to beautiful coral reefs.” Koala brings you responsible style at a price you can live with—now that’s something that should have the competition quaking in their boots.
