It all happened by chance. Back in 2017, Pip Newell was doing what many of us have done before — idling away the hours sifting through second-hand furniture wares. After a failed purchase and a pivotal re-selling later, her vintage furniture brand, Curated Spaces, was more or less born. Three years later, Pip and her sister Annelise have grown from professional fossickers to designers in their own right.
We speak to Sharnee Thorpe, the founder of Wandering Folk, a sustainable homewares brand. Her pretty picnic rugs were first imagined on a rainy camping trip when she had nothing to keep her toosh off damp ground.
