Curious Treasures

If Alice in Wonderland taught us anything, it is that an unassuming rabbit hole can be home to some of the most curious treasures. Inspired by Alice’s adventures, a group of Brisbane designers created the online boutique, Cotton Tail Rabbit. By stocking a range of craft, fashio9n, design and second hand products, the creators hope [...]

BUXXXER, BY KOKORO

By Benjamen Judd The QT team are far from shy. In fact, we like to think we live by the words of Mae West – “the best way to behave, is to misbehave.” So with that in mind, proceed to read at your own peril… Italian design and creative group, Kokoro, have released a range [...]

Witu Goodness.

By Benjamen Judd Witu Goodness Neoprene is underrated. It’s the material of the future! Well, maybe not the future as it has been around for ages. But all the cool people use it – divers, photographers, equestrian mega-stars and hydroponic gardeners (yes, we know what that means). And now, Melbourne designers Elise Wilken and Natalie [...]

Dinosaur Gelato

By Benjamen Judd It’s no secret that everyone in the QT office likes ice cream. And by likes we mean we would sell our mothers for it. And by sell, we mean we would literally sell our mothers for a bowl of ice cream. And we also think dinosaurs are cool. So we became happier [...]

We’re F!nk-ing

By Benjamen Judd F!nk is a bit of an institution within the design world. Not only are they stocked in international art institutes such as MoMA in New York and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra – the label is behind some of the most famous household items of the past decade. The iconic [...]

By Benjamen Judd If you’ve taken yourself out on a lovely stroll up Oxford Street to Paddington, you may have noticed the Kate Sylvester store.

From Finland, With Colour.

By Benjamen Judd Former U.S. First Lady and style legend, Jackie Kennedy, was allegedly a huge fan of Finnish fashion and homewares label, Marimekko. They were famous for their bold prints and incredibly bright colours even back in 1951, when the brand first launched. Why are we talking about them? Because they are finally opening [...]

Wax Heads

By Benjamen Judd If someone gave us some candleholders as a birthday gift, we’d probably just re-gift that stuff right back. But if they were candleholders in the shape of a doll’s head we’d not only keep them, but also offer whoever gave it to us our last piece of chocolate. And that, in case [...]

Everingham and Watson Now Online

By Benjamen Judd It’s always good news when one of your favourite boutique stores for bits and pieces opens up an online component. Particularly when that store normally operates as a pop-up store around Brisbane. Which is what Everingham and Watson were and now have done. Owners, Susie Everingham and Liz Watson, had already made [...]

Tea With the Mister

By Benjamen Judd We consider ourselves quite the lucky bunch here in the QT offices. It’s not often you get a group of people working together who all share the same dorky sense of humour – like watching videos of baby animals sneezing, bad grammar in menus and sarcastic cartoons. However, like all offices, no [...]

By Benjamen Judd Dads all over Australia have just celebrated Father’s Day and we can only imagine all the good things they got when they woke up. Like socks. And underwear. Some ‘fancy’ beer. If this was the list of things that your dad got, we hope you kept the receipts because we have gone [...]
