Carmine and Teal
Carmine and Teal was borne out of a desire for self-expression, a passion for bringing vibrancy and excitement to any room and an appreciation for good taste, craftsmanship and ethnicity. One of a kind and a work of art, the rugs are designed in Israel, in collaboration with a group of Kashmiri artisans and made using 100% ethically sourced, Australian wool. The wool is dyed by hand, largely using natural dyes. Each design is created using a stunning and unique combination of colour and style, combining both traditional and modern designs. Each rug is hand embroidered, in a traditional chain stitch method, typical to the area, a process which takes more than 8 weeks. Each artist leaves their special, individual signature on each rug and slight imperfections are to be expected – it is those slight imperfections that make their rugs so unique.
Cavalier Bremworth has a 50-year heritage of producing the finest quality carpets and rugs made from 100% pure New Zealand wool. It is this heritage and our continued focus on innovation that has seen our unique woollen flooring in discerning homes across the world.

Empty Lamps began whilst Murray Thorpe was working as an electrician on a renovation in Red Hill, Brisbane. Light fixtures were basic BC batten holders that we spray painted black to blend in with the black ceilings. The feature was the filament bulb. Intrigued by this idea, a love for architecture and the moody filament bulb Murray began working with basic timber shapes, hiding the fitting and showcasing the filament bulb alongside natural timbers. With help from a carpenter father and cabinet maker friend things started to evolve. Since then Murray has built custom lights for various Brisbane builders as well as furniture fit-outs for local businesses.

The joy of living in beautiful homes suffused with its own individualistic style is a need Junie Lin wishes to share. Out of that creative need, Mirage Haven was born. The opportunities to create alluring ambiences motivate the company to offer premium home accessories that blend harmoniously with most spatial arrangements and home environments.
Expect opulent fabrics, gorgeous patterns, and sumptuous textures to be emblematic of all their impeccably designed cushions. The first range of collections feature easy-to-mix and layer-on colours and patterns. A sensible balance of style, quality, and price also imbue Mirage Have’s line with pragmatic luxury.
“Cushion styling should be effortless and mood-invoking. We created this collection in quintessential classic style, along with Australia’s iconic, casual approach to home décor,” said Junie Lin, Founder and Creative Director. “Designing this line is a fresh representation of my personal style. I want my creations not only to be accessible but to also present beautifully in any home.”
Junie is also the owner of a popular online shopping destination, @HamptonsHomeAU on the Gold Coast, Australia. Her long experience of owning one of Australia’s premiere online retail stores has given her a unique perspective on the type of home furnishings people actually want in their homes.
Bringing the same aesthetic to her product designs for Mirage Haven, Junie’s line of cushions epitomizes crisp, pared down, and sophisticated edges integrated with timeless design elements such as quatrefoils, clean lines, and circular motifs.
Junie was nominated as one of the finalists for the 2019 Ausmumprenuer Awards in the retail category.
The Mirage Haven brand marks the second introduction to Junie’s home furnishings brand and the first in the wholesale retail category.
