While Early Settler have been impressing me with their latest collections for some time now, their limited edition pieces released this week just took things to a whole new level. So I’m here to highlight the best bits and urge you to get shopping ASAP, because stock (as the name suggests) is limited and once they’re gone, they’re gone! No just that, but one lucky reader will get to win a beautiful luxe velvet sofa. Keep reading…
The best thing about these new limited pieces is there’s not just one look, there’s something for all tastes: the ever-popular industrial, French and vintage looks, on-trend luxe (hello velvet!) and (moody) floral and last but not least, storage. Can you ever have too much storage?!
There’s loads to see in store and online, but these are my top picks.
There are several velvet sofas (gosh, I love velvet sofas) and I couldn’t pick just one. First up, the Lisette 3.5-seater (shown in peacock green velvet) which also comes in dusty pink, purple and indigo velvet). And the price? $1299! Yes, velvet, 3.5 seater and just $1299 for a limited time (full price $1699)! I know! I love its classic shape and proportions and comfy cushions.
If you’re looking to go all out with your statement sofa, look no further than this beauty, the Juel 3.5-seater Chesterfield at $1499. Shown in vintage indigo and vintage gold below, it also comes in vintage peacock, vintage duck egg and vintage plush rose. You can coordinate (or contrast) with the Juel occasional chairs too.
I’m so in love with this ultra luxe, bold, jewel-toned look.
Early Settler have always had great vanities and this 2-door Nico French Vanity with Bluestone Top is no exception. It’s also just $899. Say what?! You can completely change the look of your bathroom by replacing the vanity (without the need for more expensive renos) and I am a big believer in going for something other than the standard white gloss. This piece would add some warmth and character to your bathroom and the stone top is both practical and luxurious. I love how it looks more like a freestanding vintage furniture piece than a bathroom cabinet.
While we’re talking about storage, I absolutely love this Monde Shelving Unit for $1299. It would look amazing in a living room full of books and/or decor items, in a dining room filled with your favourite ceramics or even in a kids or teenager’s room (secured safely to the wall, of course), filled with toys and treasures. This is a great, affordable way to add a great display option to your home.
We’ve seen a growing trend for moody florals and this Louisa 2 Drawer Bedside Table is an unexpected way to add the trend to your bedroom for $399.
Do you have a buffet in your home? Let me tell you, they are so useful! Every home should have one and they can work in your living room, hallway, dining room or even kitchen! They’re not just for storage, they’re the perfect place to display and style up some beautiful vignettes, perhaps with a great lamp, and they can be the perfect item to ground some artwork or a gallery wall of family photos above. The vintage-look Coralie 3 Drawer Buffet comes in indigo (I know, such a surprise for me choose the navy version of something!) as well as turquoise and an easy-to-work-with light cloud. It’s $1299.
I bet you never knew you needed this Juan Bench either. And now you’re trying to work out how you can incorporate it into your home. It’s $499, also comes in white, and looks like you shipped it home from your last overseas holiday. Love it!
If you’re a fan of a luxe gold accent in your home, you’ll easily find a place for this elegant Exford Marble Side Table, which looks a lot more expensive than its $299 price tag.
If you have a bedroom without built-ins, storage can be a real challenge and wardrobes don’t come cheap. I love the clean lines and industrial look of the Sleek Hanging Cabinet. At $499, I think it would be perfect in a guest bedroom.
So, what do you think of my picks? Which is your favourite? Would you agree that Early Settler have seriously upped their game in the last year?
