A store that’s become a go-to for inimitable design items and beautifully crafted handmade wares, DEA is the kind of space where customers can wind up losing hours in a browsing trance.
On Saturday October 27, Karin Huchatz – the force behind DEA, which stands for “delicate eye area” – will be setting up a one-off shop at the Connoisseur Discover Festival.
“Visitors can expect to find a microcosm of what makes DEA unique – a blend of Japanese and Australian handmade products, which can only be found at our store,” Huchatz says.
“There’ll be ceramics by some of the best potters in Australia, as well as our own range, plus beautiful kitchenware you’ll fall in love with and use on a daily basis. We work closely with our suppliers, and this will come across in our lovely selection of goods.”
On show at the Connoisseur Fest will be SOH range (among others), designed by DEA and executed by talented potter Peter Anderson. “We designed it three years ago, and it’s still our best-selling line – gracing magazine pages all over Australia,” she says.
Huchatz has also arranged a unique Japanese-inspired experience for customers at the short-term store. “Kuan from Taste Kaleidoscope teas will be doing a matcha tea tasting with our very own organic-certified matcha tea, and is free to explain the other magnificent blends in his range,” she says. “We can’t wait!”
