Christopher Vine, celebrated Australian artist and designer, has recently opened The Department, a unique shop showcasing his vibrant art alongside weird and wonderful modern and retro designs from across the globe.
The walls are adorned with Christopher Vine canvases – available to the public for immediate purchase or by commission – coming in a range of colourful shades, shapes and sizes from petite wall hangings to folding screen doors. Tables are covered with Christopher Vine designed cups, plates and platters bearing signature images such as florals, buildings and vintage-style mopeds.
Complimenting the artworks are a number of quirky collectables and furniture for the home, such as a beautiful wooden carpenters bench and a host of vintage style knickknacks. Additionally, The Department stocks a range of chocolate sourced from the finest chocolatiers; a nice housewarming present if the other pieces prove a little extravagant.
