Commune | Bondi
Best friends Loren Morten and Kristie Keith had an idea many years ago to open a store which supplied locally sourced, beautiful well-imagined products made by local artisans and inspiring craftsman. The main focus was to provide products that weren't saturated in the market place. Fast forward to today and their dream is now a reality. Their store Commune, which opened just three months ago is a bright and crisp, Byron-esque space tucked away in Bondi Beach, with its white-washed walls and raw timber furniture, it feels a little like walking into a friend's beach house. The store is full of all their favourite consciously sourced products, ranging from ceramics and furniture to bedding and fashion. Each brand and artist is thoroughly researched, with the focus on ethically-made products. The Commune collection is simply stunning - the edit includes local ceramists Tara Burke, Sarah Schembri and Clay by Tina, as well as furniture by Bisque and fashions brands Estilo Emporio and LA brand LACAUSA, to name a few.
