We’ve rounded up a list of eleven favourite winter homewares right now…

They’ve distinguished themselves as an authority on good design with their furniture, lighting and homewares collection. The Joe Loveseat is supremely comfortable with feather cushion support and a washed linen cover.
Dutch brand By Mölle are advocates for slow living and buying better, not more. Made from recycled denim cotton, the zipper and buttons have been removed from a pair of pre-owned jeans to create this thick, textured blanket that is perfect for draping over a sofa or at the end of a bed. The dark blue-grey colour is soft and neutral, reminiscent of its past life.
Jardan has been in operation since 1987, beginning by producing large-scale furniture before recently incorporating lighting, textiles and homewares into their collection.

The Acre Cushion has a soft blend of woollen fibres that make it perfect for nights on the sofa or as an addition to your bed.
The Tree House candle by BYREDO is simple and sophisticated with base notes of leather and heart notes of hay and myrrh. Top notes of bamboo and pimento are reminiscent of the inspiration behind the scent, Takashi Kobayashi’s Biotop tree house in Tokyo. The handmade French mouth-blown glass container is a sleek and elegant addition to any home.
After recognising an opportunity in the market for simple, handmade rugs Armadillo & Co began working with artisans to create a varied selection of high-quality rugs using sustainable fibres and Fair Trade practices.

There’s nothing as comforting as a cup of tea during winter. Whether you’re enjoying a cup while reading the Sunday paper or offering your guests a fresh brew, this minimalist tea pot from Città makes the process a little more special. It’s made from clear borosilicate glass for a modern aesthetic that lets you watch the tea change colour and doesn’t take up precious visual space.

Responsible for some of our favourite architecture and interiors, Norm Architects also use their minimalist style to design products for better living, like this innovative lamp for Menu.

Australian brand Addition Studio‘s designs intersect between art and wellbeing. All of their products are designed with the ethos that daily rituals can nourish the mind and body. This modern concrete iteration of an incense burner lets you create a utopia at home by filling the air with your scent of choice.
It can be tough choosing between the range of heaters on offer come winter time, knowing that you may only use it for a few months before storing it away. What’s great about the DysonPure Hot+Cool Link is that it’s useful all year round, able to effectively heat and cool your home when needed. On top of that, it actually purifies the air and traps pollutant particles while it works. The Wi-Fi connection and dedicated app make it easy to schedule or pre-heat your place before arriving home.
