OK, I understand
Ooooh we're pretty pumped to share something kinda big with you today! For the past twelve months, well known Melbourne designer Beci Orpin has been working feverishly on a new project of rather epic proportions, in collaboration with local entrepreneur Adam Rogers. The result is Arro Home, an extensive new locally designed homewares label, incorporating a broad range of soft furnishings (including rugs!), tableware and other quirky, colourful home accessories.
Beci and Adam initially met a few years ago on a previous project, and instantly hit it off. 'During one meeting we started talking about homewares, and realised we both shared the same ideas and enthusiasm for design' recalls Beci. 'Before we knew it, Arro Home was born!'
Beci is Arro's creative director, and with her small team of assistants, has designed the debut range almost exclusively in house (and it's huge!). 'It's taken us approximately one year to get to this point. We started slowly as we wanted the product to be perfect. No stone was left unturned!' says Beci.
From the outset, it has been very important to both Adam and Beci to design their range with an affordable pricepoint in mind. Locally made ceramic tableware starts at $20, whilst rugs, designed locally and produced overseas are priced from $300. 'We really wanted the range to be accessible' says Adam.
Arro Home's first collection features bedding, cushions, ceramics, rugs, tablelinen and kitchen textiles and more. In keeping with Beci's distinctive style, the Arro Home aesthetic incorporates bold, colourful print and pattern, designed to be mixed up and layered for full effect! Arro Home also have some pretty cool collaborations in the pipeline, and will be introducing new product categories over the coming months… stay tuned!
The full Arro Home range is available for pre-order online now (it will ship at the end of the month). Currently, they ship Australia wide - International shipping is in the works and it expected to be up and running within 4 weeks.
