In 2014, after travelling to the opposite side of the country to visit their grandparents in Perth, sisters Samantha, Marnie and Gabrielle Jervis, couldn’t help but reflect on their lives, their dreams and doing what they loved.
“What did we want to do with our lives? It was the question of the moment,” says Gabrielle. “We always knew our aesthetics and tastes were individual yet complementary, and a voice rang in our heads urging us to go into business together.” So, after many a conversation and quite the ‘aha’ moment, the sisters joined forces to borne online homewares boutique, Middle Road.
The culmination of their combined backgrounds in interior design, marketing and media, and a united passion for creativity and originality, saw their recently released debut collection feature an innovative assortment of abstract and striking homewares.
Made from a fusion of raw materials and some of nature’s most beautiful elements, the collection includes bowls, cups and coasters. “Middle Road’s collection includes elegant multipurpose cement and polished marble presentation bowls and cups used to house succulents, candles or fruit,” explains Gabrielle. “We also have handmade ceramic bowls and coasters, with high gloss white top finishes and rich gold and copper leafing. Finally, semi-precious crystals hand selected for their healing properties also feature throughout the collection, available as individual premium clusters or adorned upon polished cement presentation bowls and cups.”
Each piece is made to order and available online.
