Hailed as an icon of Australian design, accessories and homewares label Dinosaur Designs had humble beginnings, launching with a market stall at Sydney's Paddington Markets. In the years that followed, Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy have grown this beautiful business into a local and international design powerhouse. Today, there are stand-alone stores in Australia and New York, with London on the way. Every piece is authentically made by hand with resin, silver, brass and glass, with new collections regularly released. Best of all, every piece is available from its online store, which lets you shop by colour, price, genre or style. Check out the gorgeous Dinosaur Designs film here and the stunning gift ideas featured on the online store.

The founder of fragrance company Juniper Ridge prides himself on the fact, despite his business, he is not a fashion or luxury industry type. Instead, he spends his days hiking and backpacking, creating colognes and perfumes via traditional methods for an authentic scent. As the world's only wilderness fragrance distillery, Juniper Ridge creates its products from real plants, bark, moss, mushrooms and tree trimmings (rather than synthetics) from the West Coast of the United States. A beautiful boutique online store that needs to be checked out!
