A new shipment at Parterre Garden

Deirdre Brennan - Friday, February 10, 2012

I was very excited to receive news from Parterre of the new shipment from France and Belgium.

The showroom/shop has been completely refitted to showcase all the new pieces and I can't wait to see it all !!! Always looking magnificent....and such a temptation. 

I love the mix of larger, serious pieces of furniture and mirrors with small decorative vases and other exquisite collectables.


My Hunt For Those Beautiful Shell Mirrors

Deirdre Brennan - Wednesday, January 11, 2012


While in Sydney during this quiet time before all the fabric and furniture showrooms open next week I have been enjoying seeking out all the places that I just didn't get to in 2011.  High on my list was and is James Edwards Shell Mirrors in Cleveland Street. No 265 actually.  I drive past is often, never having time to stop......and wondering where I will park as it is the busy section of Cleveland St between Elizabeth St and Chalmers.  It is only open Thursday to Saturday 1pm until 5pm which does narrow the opportunities a little.

So, on googling James..... to establish all of the above, I have stumbled across the fabulous photography of Nick Bassett who has a lovely blog......and beautiful photographs of James Edwards Shells!!!!

I will have details on the mirrors when finally I get there.
