They also have an amazing selection of gifts (cards, candles, tea, etc.) and design-related books.
From the talented minds of a mother and daughter duo, this Noosa homewares store brings us luxe beachside style at its finest. Clo Studios have made interior dreams come true with their light timber tables, cabinets and consoles, woven rugs and pendants, striking leather chairs and barstools, large-scale photographs and must-have ceramic vases. One step into this showroom and you’ll understand why it’s rated as one of the best homewares stores on the Sunshine Coast.
Peregian Beach and Mooloolaba
With two locations on the Coast, you have double the chances to drop in to Bedouin Traders. Hands down one of the best homewares stores on the Sunshine Coast, their artworks alone— bright and colourful oil on linen and detailed acrylic on canvas—are a good enough reason to visit. But don’t be fooled, they have so much to offer in the way of interior goodies and fashion, that it’d be impossible to list them all.
Before even entering this Maroochydore boutique, the beach shack exterior lets you know you’re in for a treat. Coast Store is where sophistication meets beachy, and there’s a bunch of items you won’t be able to leave without, including the large attention-grabbing wooden bowls, cane baskets and raw wood or whitewashed furniture pieces. They also have poolside and palm prints from FINEPRINT Co. perfect for gazing at when it’s rainy outside.
If vintage is your jam when it comes to decking out your home, Circa 70 needs to be on your hit list. Stocking a wide range of 20th century pieces such as lounges, dining tables, sideboards, vases and lamps, everything in this store has been restored to perfection. And, if you can’t get to Mooloolaba, keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates of new stock.
Villa Verde Living
The lifestyle boutique in the heart of Caloundra will take you on a journey into unique and sustainable collections from across the globe. Anna, the owner of Villa Verde, developed a taste for exotic design while working as a stylist for some of the largest luxury yachts in the world. Lining the shelves of the store are relaxed and chic cushions, throws and tea towels, gifts for both him and her and a range of organic skincare that smells so good you’ll want to eat it. The store also stocks a wide range of fashion and accessories.
RAW Sunshine Coast
The handcrafted timber furniture and joinery from RAW might possibly be the definition of perfect. Designed with a Scandinavian influence, each piece is custom-made from locally-sourced sustainable materials. From desks and side tables to benches and shelves, pop into their Maroochydore showroom to eye off the goods in real life. Hot tip: If your budget is tighter than what your heart desires, then hold off until RAW’s epic warehouse sales.
We suggest wearing thongs when entering this mid-century modern living store, because it’s guaranteed to knock your socks off. Midmodoz is renowned for its collection of fully-restored Danish furniture, plus you’ll find reclaimed timber lamps, retro paintings and ceramics, some even by the renowned Danish ceramicist, Bjorn Wiinblad.
Spanning a variety of design styles, Eclectic Style’s collections range from jungle love and Australian outback to vintage Moroccan.

With furniture for every room, wall art, rugs, lighting, tableware and textiles, it’ll be near impossible to leave empty-handed.
