Hardware, just as its name implies, is not often chosen as a decorative detail. The pieces are utilitarian and practical, but that's what I love about them and why I think they deserve to be valued beyond their hardworking capabilities and enjoyed for their aesthetic qualities, too.
Step into my interiors and you'll quickly realise the value I place on hardware. It's given a pedestal that's slightly foreign to its usual application. My new Henry Mercer collection of hardware let me revel in design. Choosing the key pieces I loved to bring new life to and place them firmly into a styling vernacular. I envisage these pieces as a clear meeting of form and function, so I'm offering up some ideas for styling with them. Let's start with the Wright G-Clamp.
1. Desk tool – Our Wright G-Clamp is the perfect tool for a busy worker. Clamp it to your desk to secure all of your paper ephemera; notes, letters, business cards & more. Alternatively, use it to secure a piece of fabric or table cloth to an old boring tabletop – it will hold it in place securely & immediately increase aesthetic appeal of a previously bland old work bench.
2. Hanging Mechanism – This G-Clamp is the perfect tool for hanging. Secure it to a shelf edge or picture rail & pair it with one of our cage lights, a cloth covered cord and a vintage LED bulb & you’re set! It’s also perfect for hanging artwork – suspend rope from the g-clamp & attach it to the back of your artwork. It’s great in a retail space to display pictures & cards of all sorts OR use it to hold down signage on those breezy days.
3. Kitchen Hardware – This piece can also be handy in the kitchen to hang tea towels, wash cloths, utensils, you name it. Lock it to a timber shelf edge (held up by our Panhandler Bracket) & hang from the handle lever. It’s a much nicer way to display things, especially in a hospitality venue which has an open kitchen that the public can see.

We whizzed down the back streets of Seminyak and the smaller the streets became the deeper we time travel into a Bali of a time gone-by...
This year, my dear friend and photographer; William Meppem and I captured the essence of this perfect boathouse, located in Newport, Sydney. The ideal spot to drop your anchor this holiday season.
I have dreamt of a boathouse escape for many years and all of my dreams have come true in a recent visit to a space that captures it all, The Salty Dog. This miniature house provides all of the nuances of boat building within its own minute space. Situated amongst the quintessential Sydney landscape of emerald green water and unique sandstone structures - surrounded by angophora gums.
With the extension of the dinghy & direct entrance to the water, this house evolves into an explorative landscape that extends beyond its petite footprint. If I were to create the ideal boathouse... This would be it.
