Dedicated to bringing unique Japanese homewares to Australia, I’m Home is an online store that stocks a carefully selected range of handcrafted products from designers based in Kanazawa, Sapporo, Gifu and Tokyo that display quality craftsmanship and design.
The duo behind the store, Rohan Hutchinson and Adeline Kurniadjaja, have had a longstanding appreciation for Japanese homewares. “It’s the dedication of the artist to their craft. It’s not about making quantity but making sure that each piece created is to the best of their ability,” says Kurniadjaja.
Together, Hutchinson and Kurniadjaja have handpicked products for the store, visiting each artist individually and taking the time to get to know them and their craft. The result is a harmonious range of products and overall store concept.
Over a week at Off the Kerb Gallery in Collingwood, the pop up will have products from new brands they are stocking including hand painted pots by Tokyo brand Polkaros; Savon de Siesta cold process soaps and shampoo; colourful and intricately patterned socks from Chup; geometry inspired stationery from Sapporo-based brand Drop Around; and a range of tenugui, bags, and traditional Japanese fans from Takara Gallery in Gifu.
The I’m Home pop-up shop opens at Off the Kerb Gallery on 13 December with a small launch party from 5pm-7pm, and runs until December 20.
