Well. I was going to post about something completely different today until I caught sight of the BIG news on the Vogue Living blog. Williams-Sonoma are coming to Sydney! I do recognise this news will not impress those of you who are based State-side and have been shopping at Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids and West Elm for years. But – we down here in Australasia have not yet had the pleasure…
Anyhoo, apparently the newly constructed Exchange Building at Bondi Junction will house the four stores which are currently slated to open in early 2013. These are the first retail locations outside of North America to be owned and operated by the retailer as part of its overall global expansion strategy. Lucky us.
Now, just to whet your appetite, I had a wee trawl through the websites to see what goodies caught my eye. I could have wasted an afternoon, but these are the first few things I came up with…
yep, pretty exciting!
Love the mongolian lamb pillow covers! Cheers to great stores “Down Under”!
Hip hip hooray!
Someone’s going to be busy 🙂
Oh yes. V E R Y !
I am sooo excited!!! Even just those little chalkboard labels have me….
Me too – I may have to take up jam making!
Finally – a few stores that I have actually had the pleasure to visit – only 15 minutes away from me! I’m glad you will have the opportunity soon, too!
Tomorrow I’ll give you a stand-alone store, SSFAM!
Oh, you have made my day, TSL. Please don’t think I’m shallow, but I LOVE Williams-Sonoma and am so excited that they’re heading our way! 🙂
Shallow? You? – Hardly. And, I’m excited, too (as is BCD). Surely we are not all shallow?
LOVE the jar lights! As per usual TSL, a top notch post : )
Anarty – I thank you! I reckon a trip to Syders may be in order for you when Williams-Sonoma arrive…?
Oh yes when I get the chance (and the mula) I’ll pack a lunch and come on over don’t you worry!
Sydney, will you please stop, I need to buy paint. Now I have to have a bird vase! Cheers
Aren’t they gorgeous? Could you not have both…?
Gemma Orkin <3 another South African lass! Absolutely love her ceramics – so thrilled West Elm decided to collaborate!
I think they’re gorgeous!
Love Williams Sonoma! A bit pricey but they got the goods.. One of those Wow I could really use that kind of places.
I can’t wait. I’m a girl – therefore, I don’t really need an excuse to shop!
Lol… I’m a guy I shop by accident. Go there cause I need something then end up browsing around and impulse buying.
