Gift emporium, Opus, opened its first store in Paddington in 1968 and now has two more stores, OCTOPUS in Newtown, and the new Paddington store OPUS Design Co, a few doors down from the original. The company now stocks kitchenware and clever cooking tools, stationery, books, homewares, gifts, quirky novelties and gadgets.
This beautiful design store now boasts two levels, and if you ascend the stairs, you'll find lust-worthy labels like Kate Spade, Orla Kiely, Elk, Hunter Lab and Atelier Lumira. Clearly there is good reason OPUS has been a destination for visiting celebs (catch Leo DiCaprio while you can).
