Black & Spiro
Designer Anna Spiro was born into a home where beauty surrounded her, so it’s little wonder she ended up opening a business where she could help clients create homes and places which are reflective of their lives, and what it is they love. At Black & Spiro, it’s all about the mix, not the match, so take a tumble down this enchanted rabbit hole and see where you end up!
Created 10 years ago by two sisters in Melbourne, homewares label Mozi offers up a range of bright delights sure to bring life to your home.

As an added bonus, Jardan uses sustainable timbers and is carbon neutral so you can feel good about splurging on new furniture!
