Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy of Dinosaur Designs are known for their bright, bold, resin jewellery. But the Australian makers’ latest collection contains some homewares that are even more covetable than their adornments.

The Atelier range includes Dinosaur Designs’ first foray into producing candles and table linens (which have been woodblock-printed in two different colourways on organic fabric by artisans in India). The vases in the collection are equally beautiful, thanks to their organic, irregular shapes, jewel tones and a new casting technique that gives them a brush-stroked rim. The pieces can be purchased on the company’s website and posted to New Zealand.
