Recently commissioned bespoke for Aje Head Office, Shades Launay are considered, one-of-a-kind lamp shades that are all hand woven and bound on Gayemagal land in Sydney by founder Lana Launay. Edwina recommends following Lana on Instagram for fashion meets interior inspiration, always with a touch of humour.

'These statement, Mirage Pebble Statement gold plated earrings with cascading pebble details are the perfect gift for your hard-to-buy-for friend, a chic and effortless way to elevate any evening look.'

The Ritual, an Australian based and female owned brand, create handcrafted Ritual Kits to help set intentions and shift perspectives, assisting you to better connect with mind, body and spirit.

'The Medina Round Zip Leather Coin & Card Purse, the perfect everyday coin purse. I love how this piece can be easily attached to your bag to compliment any look. A fail-proof gift'

'I love how versatile this Aje Palms Raffia Tote Market Bag is, designed from consciously sourced raffia paper straw, the fine braiding and tassels add an effortless cool to the classic market bag to assist your loved ones travel in style.'

These modern, raw clay vases-meet-sculpture from Malene Knudsen have an organic strength and raw beauty. A beautiful gesture for any art and interior lover in your life.

In contrast, Astier de Villatte ceramics are one of the only Parisian studios still following traditional artisanal techniques. These Incense burners are heritage pieces your loved one will keep forever.

'Designed alongside Local Supply in ode to the Hollywood glamour of the 60s, this timeless Cat Eye shape has a bold nonchalance, flattering the face while maintaining a stylish edge. A classic style for any fashion lover looking to feel immediately pulled together.'

'One of my favorite looks from our Scent of Summer collection, this dress as featured on our Resort 22 runway, is the ultimate Christmas look. The flowing, asymmetric length and artisanal ring joint detail at the waist make this style a beautiful mix of sensuality and sophistication.'

My design ethos is grounded in an appreciation for the arts and a celebration of craftsmanship. Emma and Andrew Jensen of Fox Jensen Gallery are personal friends and a constant source of inspiration. The works of Marisa Purcell have been particularly inspiring to me of late - a luxury gift for art enthusiasts.
