koskela_ Among the new stack of Loom rugs, you'll find many types of weaves. Kilim rugs are flat woven rug without knots and therefore without pile. Old Yarn rugs have been hand woven from recycled yarn unraveled from vintage kilims. Dhoku rugs are hand woven from organic, typically undyed wool creating a natural finish with imperfections and an appealing texture. Vintage Rugs, like this one, have several origins and therefore can very greatly in style, colour and technique. There's a rug for every space! #koskelashowroom! 6h

koskela_ Rain Rain Rain! ️ With another week of chilly, wet outdoors on the horizon, why not play some games (without LED lights and batteries)? We've collected some award winning, great games that will help your kids develop abstract, creative thinking + metal dexterity while keeping adults engaged too. How about an anagram game where the words you spell can be taken over by other players and the score is fast paced? Or a trivia game where you don't need to know the answer - closest guess wins. How about trivia using clues and questioning in which learning styles are your best tool to win? None of those? How about one of the puzzle games! There's one that looks like Chinese Checkers, but "planets" are linked by chain and your "galaxy" pieces must stay in orbit. Play a game like 3D Tetris meets Checkers. Fit pieces together in a 3-D tower, a magnetic wooden dice pyramid or play dominos with a 2x2 square of symbols and more. Come pick one up before the weekend to get your brains moving and your family playing. #koskelajuniors 1d

The winning rug will be featured in our front display next week! #koskelashowroom #Rug #Rosebery 2d

koskela_ The National Portrait Gallery in Canberra is exhibiting an amazing show right now. Arcadia; Sound of the Sea celebrates 1970's surf culture, the spiritually restorative force of the sea, and free-spirited values. We decided to be a sponsor for the exhibition because we try to keep those simple joys from the past in our own lives and we're transfixed by the amazing photography, drawings, and film about that's been curated for the show. If you get a chance to see this exhibition, don't pass it up! Love that ‘By simply surfing [they were] supporting the revolution.’ (Nat Young). Simply following your heart can lead to big things. #followtrustdo 1w

koskela_ "Hi, I'm Ashley, and I'm a cake-&-coffee-brunch kind of girl, which is good because so is my dashing husband. We love a sweet saturday start now and then. I've been eyeing this Rabbit Trap Timber board for a while, and couldn't go past the Kaz Morton ceramic dishes to complete our charcuterie set. (Brunch charcuterie IS a thing!) I've found I love this board mostly for presenting food, but this small sized one has also has been working great as a chopping board for cooking prep too. The ceramic side dishes are the perfect size for dressings, olives, nuts, condiments, or passionfruit + creme. Anything you put in them looks immediately fancier with the beautiful matt/gloss glaze combos on the dishes. Anyone for Waffle charcuterie + blueberries + maple syrup next Sat?" // recycled hardwood timber board: Small $55, ceramic bowls: from $25 #KoskelaStaffFieldTest 1w

koskela_ The sold out #compassionatevoices exhibition Gala will be buzzing with guests, music, food and an auctioneer in just 2 days time! We can't wait - especially to participate in the excitement of the auction! Some of these artworks, like Michael Zavros's, doesn't show in Sydney and his works are highly collectible - which will make for a lively sale. See work by this year's Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award winner, the recent Sr Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art, artists that show in the Sydney, Venice + other notable Biennales, and art with more international accolades and awards than we can count. The incredible @lianerossler had put together a seriously impressive group of artists and it's a rare chance to buy some of the work, ranging from $100-$10,000+. Bid online if you can't make it on the night, or one of your favourite a doesn't get auctioned, through Sept 7. 1w

koskela_ Theres always something new to discover in the #koskelashowroom. Today, a new range of ceramic lighting is brightening things up. Handmade by architect/maker Bruce Rowe of @anchorceramics (who share creative space with @popandscott in VIC), this range aims to create beautiful ceramic pieces to enhance daily life and the quality of the spaces that we all occupy. We love their warm quality and gorgeous glaze combos (and their insta-feed, which has the most amazing collection of circle images! ) 2w
