Authenticity always. Bringing in the personality and soul of the homeowner is the best way to make a home that feels right.
The best spaces are always a good mix of both. When a space is too refined & luxe it can come off as cold or uninviting. We believe in creating spaces that are a reflection of the owner, a consideration of space where form and function work together in harmony. I do firmly believe in investing in a few quality pieces that are comfortable and built to last.
Rugs are a great way to inject soul and ground a space. They are always worth the investment. Memories, art, vintage pieces acquired on travels create so much more of an inviting space than something that looks like it’s straight from a catalogue – none of these need to be luxe.
Consider everything, purpose, form, functionality and of course, sometimes you just love it! Also, remember that some of the best pieces you can source are already within your possession; they just need to be reimagined, and of course, when you are considering finding a truly unique and timeless piece – come visit us!
We recently started working with a sustainable Scandinavian rug brand Cappelen Dimyr who create incredible artful rugs that are intended to be hung on the wall as art. We see our entire collection of rugs as functional art, so if you choose to hang a rug on a wall, I’d say go for it! Ideally, your home should be a comfortable space that makes you happy.
We recently launched our first furniture collection The Organic Table Collection, a series that is all made to order locally. We have been blown away by the positive response!
Lighting is an easy way to add mood and a sculptural or interesting vintage piece will add depth and character.
Create some new energy in the space by moving objects around, especially if the object is yourself! Don’t forget how restorative the outdoors are, even if it’s getting out for a quick walk.
We are constantly inspired by the natural world, finding our greatest inspirations in the beauty of nature. Art and architecture is another huge draw of inspiration along with travel, after all, it was a trip to Morocco that inspired us to create Tigmi Trading.
We don’t usually get behind trends, but the movement towards conscious construction and building with sustainable materials like recycled woods and hemp could be the exception.
Tigmi Trading is located in Byron Bay's Habitat Centre as well as in Newrybar, or if you're not in Byron Bay you can shop their collection via the online store HERE, or simply take some inspo from their gorgeous Instagram HERE. Photos courtesy of Tigmi Trading and Alicia Taylor Photography.
