Set amongst Melbourne’s foresty north-east, Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds of Coco Flip welcome us into their warm, sun-drenched family home for our latest ‘At Home with Plyroom’.
Dripping in amber tones and devil's ivy, with mid-century furniture and a ceiling hanging with billowing lanterns and pendant lamps, the nostalgic feel of their home, built in 1966 by architect Alistair Knox, is punctuated by minimalist furniture design from their own range and ours.
Modern furniture design meets mid-century
The dichotomy between old and new is also evident in their work, which blends contemporary material application and a nod to to Scandinavian modernism through spherical and geometric forms and visual simplicity.
Our series ‘At Home with Plyroom’ provides an intimate and inspiring look into the homes and lives of our friends and customers, so you can see our pieces where they're really meant to be - at use and well-loved in a real home.
Despite Kate and Haslett’s extensive background in minimalist furniture design, industrial design and architecture, their house is neither contrived nor aloof. Albeit beautiful - their home is honest, practical and fitting for the needs of their family of four.
So, join us as Kate, Haslett and their girls Mariko and Juniper show us around their beautiful space.
