The General Store Reimagined

Issue 22 · Australia and Beyond · May 30, 2012

A Sydneysider and a New Yorker team up to bring a curated collection of houseware classics to Australia (and beyond).

With Dunlin, architectural interior designers Nicholas Barber and Alexandra Bond have assembled a greatest hits list of classics from "New York to London, East Hampton to Palm Springs." Though it's clear that the lighting will complement the tableware and will flatter the furniture, in case you're still struggling with how to put it all together, an on-staff interior designer will be glad to assist you from afar. Good to know: Dunlin ships flat rate international for AU $48 (and at current exchange rates, that brings the shipping to US $47.14).

Stanley Copper Pendants

Above: Stanley Copper Pendants are hand spun in Oxford, England; AU $948 for the large, shown here.

Hand-Carved Tasting Spoons

Above: We love the proportions of these hand-carved Tasting Spoons; they're just more than an inch at their widest but nearly a foot long (a stack by the stove would come in handy); AU $68 for a set of six.

Above: Three rivets on the Montauk Antiqued Nickel Chair lend a nautical look; AU $237.

Charcoal Striped Tall Basket

Above: One of the more beautiful laundry hampers we've seen: The Charcoal Striped Tall Basket is hand-woven in Bangladesh through a women's fair trade program; AU $108.

Salt and Pepper Pots

Above: These tiny Salt and Pepper Pots, hand-blown in Morocco, come with even tinier silver-plated spoons. AU $34.50 for the set.

Antibes Glasses and Caddy

Above: A perfect caddy for summer entertaining: The Antibes Glasses and Caddy are AU $44.

French Herb & Garden Scissors

Above: A set of three French Herb & Garden Scissors is ideal for gathering summer edibles (or opening international shipments from Dunlin, whatever really); AU $39 for the set.

Napa Wall Vase

Above: I confess I'm a harsh judge of wall vases, and I find Dunlin's Napa Wall Vase near perfect. Super-thin borosilicate glass in a rough zinc holder would flatter foliage—cherry blossoms, grasses, winter berries—year round; AU $28.50.
