People looking for a unique gift for a friend or something to brighten their home will be happy to forage among Remedy’s beautiful selection of Armadillo floor rugs, handcrafted wooden bowls and ceramic vases.For something for the body, jewellery by Western Australia’s own Emily Green (now Melbourne-based), Erin Lightfoot and Abby Seymour can be found in ceramic, silver wood and crystal.
Clark and Ottone’s partnership with local artists extends to their footpath gallery. At different times of the year its has creatives such as Stormie Mills and Fleur Schell transform the store window in whichever way they please.
