The Ship Has Landed

The 40 foot container arriving at the front of our house earlier this week.




I don't think our new neighbours could believe their eyes seeing us unpacking the container in the front of our house!






Here are a few of the pieces which I had to place inside our house as our storage facility is overflowing!




We've had a very exciting week with the arrival of our beautiful Stuart Membery furniture from Bali. I first visited Stuart at his divine home in Bali late last year at which time we put together a stunning collection of his furniture for our store. We are so thrilled to be launching Stuart's furniture in Australia at Black & Spiro on our re-opening night in a couple of weeks time. The quality of the pieces is outstanding and I must admit I am going to find it very hard not to keep a few things for our new house!! Stuart will be making a very special trip down from Bali to be present at our re-opening night and will also be in the shop the next day to talk to our customers about his beautiful pieces we are now stocking. We have lots of work to do in the coming weeks. I'll be sure to keep you all up-to-date as everything unfolds.

xx
Anna


PS. Stuart's furniture will be available for purchase in our store from the 22nd July, 2010. For all enquiries, please call our office.

Hi Anna.... I am absolutely sure you "had to" store a few of these fantastic Stewart Membery in your new home... ;)!

They look GREAT!
I Sooooo wish I could attend your re-opening, would love to see the new space, but I am sure you will be showing us here on the blog as well. How about a video link from the opening, for all the rest of us who is not in Brisbane...?

Anna, Stuarts furniture has great personality. I love the yellow piece. You will have great success with his line and I wish you all the best for a wonderful re-opening event.

Have a safe & fun 4th of July. I think you may just be unpacking furniture!

I always am very exited about opening a new containeur and re-discovering the pieces I purchased for my showroom. These garden chairs are wonderful, my mother in law had a very similar antique set in the conservatory of her summer home in Newport (US)
Good luck with the re-opening. i just went through a re-opening myself as I moved our showroom location in New York.
