In a world of TikTok recommendations and Pinterest mood boards, it can be hard to know what’s worth the money – especially when it comes to homewares.
To help you cut through the noise, we’ve curated a list of Australia’s best homeware brands. From bedding to candles, you’ll (hopefully) find something that suits your style and helps support local businesses while you’re at it.
In The Roundhouse
Co-founded by The Daily Edited’s Alyce Tran, In The Roundhouse creates fresh, colourful, modern homewares – without the price tag you’d find at luxury stores.
You, Me & Bones
Halloween is right around the corner and what better way to call in the spooky season than with You, Me & Bones? Hand-made in Melbourne, the candle brand has a bunch of darkly-themed homewares that will quirk up any living room. Our personal favourites are the anatomically-correct heart and creepy doll heads.
If you’re Melbourne-based, You, Me & Bones is holding a stall at the Pedestrian Group x BWS Oksoberfest event, on October 28th. Held at the Brunswick Foodstore, You, Me & Bones will be part of the (refreshingly) new, one-day sober event that aims to change stereotypes around needing alcohol to have fun. There'll be different drinks for different tastebuds, making everyone feel welcome.
Kip & Co
Female-founded Kip & Co has quickly become a staple in the homes of Australians. From colourful glassware to soft bedsheets, Kip & Co can make shopping for tea towels a fun and stylish experience.

Made with organic cotton, Loop Home takes sustainability in the bath and bedroom one step further through its program, Re-Loop.
Once you’re finished with your piece, Re-Loop will provide a credit for returned goods so that they can be upcycled (or looped) into new products. We love to see it.
A bedroom should be a sanctuary and what better way to make it a space you want to spend time in than curating a sleek bedding collection? Roomie is a Sydney-based brand that marries aesthetics and ethics.
