Fenton & Fenton
Let’s get real; Fenton & Fenton is without a doubt a furniture and homewares mecca. It’s like walking into your dreams, you know the ones you have of your house featuring on the cover of Vogue Living? (no? that’s just us?!).
You want an Aztec-esque hanging chair for your courtyard (who doesn’t!?) You got it. The coolest pineapple printed umbrella this side of the equator? Don’t even ask twice. A standout, beautifully crafted marble table that’ll bring a tear to the eye to even the most seasoned furniture lover? It’s packed and ready.
Walking through the High St Prahran digs, is like having a lesson in art. Yes, blue and green can be seen together (take that, art teacher) and clashing textures and colours is totally acceptable (if not encouraged). Take note too because mixing bold colours with soft furnishings is now your new style mantra for your Pinterest boards, ok!
The best thing about this place is that you don’t have to go all ‘ham’ on decking out your whole house with pieces to get the full Fenton & Fenton effect. Throw a colourful geo-printed towel in the bathroom and BOOM, instant update. Add a limestone planter to your bedroom and make your house feel more Mexico than Melbourne, or display your favourite drops on an achingly cool bamboo drinks cart, because why not?!
Here, it’s all about getting that ‘wow’ factor with either one or 100 pieces because that’s the thing about Fenton & Fenton, everything just works. Like really works. Now please excuse us while we go dream up our fantasy living room and bedroom nook!
