Today I wanted to share with you this gorgeous half moon bedhead I found in my travels around the internet. It stopped me in my tracks! The brand is called Leÿer and it was created by an Aussie husband and wife duo. Read more below…
Taking inspiration from the beautiful town of Torquay along the Surf Coast of Victoria where they live, Damo Leijer who has worked as a carpenter for 13 years and his Irish wife Rebecca as a creative Marketer, have joined forces to drive their creative talents in Leÿer – Beautiful furniture with inspiring design.
For the launch campaign Rebecca collaborated with the talented trio from Kip & Co, a lifestyle brand based in Melbourne, who have just released their Stardust Collection which includes stunning plain and patterened linen sheets and pillow cases. Supporting local talent is important to this aspiring Australian brand, so when choosing a photographer for the shoot the Geelong based Hail & Shine was an easy decision. The talented duo Hayley & Matt helped Bec style all the furniture pieces in the couples home, which she felt was important for future customers. “I wanted to show how our furniture pieces could look in a normal home setting, not a studio or a heavily styled photo shoot. This is key to our design aesthetic and the very heart of our brand mission, at Leÿer simplicity is our thing”.
The young couple believe the Australian market is hungry to support local business who are producing unique, handmade and original furniture pieces that are aspirational but also attainable. Their first range is purposely small and all their designs will evolve over time. They plan to expand the range from primarily bedroom pieces and small living room items, to include dining room tables and kitchen bench designs and hopefully Retail fit-outs.
Leÿer Timber Designs also makes other bedhaeds, mirrors and side tables. I just love this look. You can shop online for their products.
