It may be many months away, but I’ve already got my Christmas wish list sorted, and right at the top is a bedhead from Mexsii.
Transforming statement artworks into padded artisan headboards, these unique pieces are not only stunning but a pretty genius idea.
For co-founder Merryn Paul the idea came from her working as a bedhead upholsterer, with the lack of design variation leaving her uninspired: “I was always searching for a bedhead idea to create for myself, but this constant turnaround of the same fabrics and design styles became so unremarkable to me. A longtime lover of vibrant art, I suddenly had a lightbulb moment: to combine my two loves of artwork and upholstery.”
Enlisting the help of longtime friend Sarah Falzon, the two have never looked back, recently releasing their first collection, Wanderlust. Never ones to shy away from colour, the fluid use of paint in their designs is reflective of the Mexsii ethos, a belief that you should be free-spirited and live your life uninhibited, a feeling they want people to have in their personal spaces.
“We want to allow people to turn their bedrooms into sanctuaries and ensure they truly love the space they live in,” explains Merryn. “We are not shy to use colour to allow people to connect with their space.”
With one of their biggest inspirations being nature (their look book was shot on a cactus farm!) it’s not surprising Mexsii strive to be environmentally sustainable.
“The overall design has been purposefully created to minimise offcuts and wastage,” says Merryn. “We have used sustainable raw materials, our fabric designs are printed onto 100% linen with non-toxic inks and we design, print and hand craft all bedheads in Melbourne.”
Mexsii Bedheads come in seven unique designs in both king and queen size. Shop online.
What a fabulous idea.
