Pure and General.
P&G found in hidden between the trending suburbs Potts Point and Darlinghurst (they call it Rushcutters Bay) and is one of my favorite homewares stores in Sydney. The store is in constant cycle of one off pieces sourced from all around the globe. The quality of materials and design is guaranteed such as leather boxes hand made in Florence, untreated wood utensils from south France, ceramics from Spain, wicker from morocco, glassware from Brazil. Whenever I go in this store, I want everything, yes – I want the 100 wooden spoons stuffed in over sized white milk jugs to adorn my triangle based untreated cedar table. When I need to look at beautiful homewares, this store is always satisfies my crave.
P&G is also by ‘go to’ whenever I need an emergency gift. Without fail you can find an amazing cookbook personally signed by the artist or a antique hanging lamp or a linen hand sewn bed spread … There is always something to suit anyones home and everyones style (and suprisingly everyone budget). Although never being short of options has its downside… I can never decide what to buy.
