A veritable treasure trove of delightful products, Third Drawer Down has been in its George street location since 2003. Just off Gertrude Street, the space is bright and airy and is dominated by an intricately designed central display unit. Inside its drawers you’ll find their famous high thread-count linens, fabric swatches, pillowcases and tea towels that feature designs from renowned artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Kat Macleod and David Bromley.

Not purely an ode to illustration and print design, Third Drawer Down also stocks wonderfully eccentric socks by AshiDashi, the interview-based magazine Mono Kultur and a dizzying array of stationary by Kaweko and various products from Tom Dixon, Lucy Folk, Edward Wohl and others. Frame this all with delightful service that is knowledgeable yet exhibits restraint and you get an exceptionally select shop that Melbourne desperately needs on its retail landscape.

Third Drawer down also have southside location, on Greville street in Prahran.
