East West Design.. 'bigger than a footy oval'.



The spectacular mural I posted yesterday is on the exterior wall of East West Design furniture shop in Fremantle.. furniture 'with attitude'! Much of the wares here are made from recycled goods and timbers, their mantra being 'if you can re-use anything on this awesome planet, why wouldn't you?' An admirable practice in this disposable throw-away world we live in! With a floor space 'bigger than a footy oval', at one point P lost me and had to ring to locate, he had that panicky look he gets when in IKEA.. what is it with men and shopping :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  1. I would LOVE this place. And probably get lost, too. But I have great empathy for P. My dear wife can disappear in the grocery store and I can't find her. So, I think both sexes are to blame! :)

  4. It looks like a big place.

    I never get lost. I just assume everyone else is.

  5. What a great concept for a store. Would love to look around but probably wouldn't buy anything. We do the charity shop route here in our town. It's small but there are three of them and each one has its own cause to support.

  6. I'm afraid you would have remained lost as I usually leave my phone at home. :-)

  10. You left your man in a shop?
    He will just buy shiny things or go to the pub and wait for you!

  11. Lots of treasures there for some. We in a shopping centre last week where there is also an Ikea. The tentative question was asked, should we have a look in Ikea? Of course I replied with a firm no. I need a day's mental preparation for that. The only shop where I trail behind instead of edging towards the exit is the large hardware shed store.

  12. This place looks packed with an extraordinary range of intriguing items. It is like a huge barn.

  15. Nice illustrations of a theme. I hate to shop. I decide what I need, buy it online if I can, or, if I have to go to a store, in and out as fast as possible.

    Even crummy little St. Louis got an Ikea last year. We must be big time now.

  16. Oh, how I wish I could shop there. Definitely my cup of tea. BTW, I love your new header. Cool frame and you included a mural!

  17. It must be at least 10 years since I've been here.

  18. Here we now have so-called "up-cycling"-stores, too - dangerous places, Grace, one got lamps of the 70´s :-)

  19. You made me laugh. I've seen plenty of men sitting in the public areas in a mall with a glazed look in their eye. This looks like a very interesting store.

  20. I have a shop nearby selling similar things. Last time I bought two plates from Australia (!)
    I will send you a photo or two later, so you can see.

    So what did you buy?

  21. Men just don't get this stuff, do they?

    I like this better than IKEA!

  22. I would want to cover it all! I can imagine getting lots of ideas to make things as well!
