Pottery Barn, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma have opened in Australia + GIVEAWAY!

This time last fortnight I was invited to attend the pre-opening preview of Pottery Barn Australia in Bondi Sydney.

The family of 4 stores Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma are now officially opened.  You can visit the stores at The Exchange Building, corner of Grosvenor Street & Oxford Street Mall, Bondi Junction.

Why Australia Sydney you ask?  Australians are the biggest consumers outside of North America, we have good taste of course! They are considering to open stores in Melbourne and Brisbane (I knew you were wondering).

I was so excited to fly down to this event, I took an empty suitcase thinking I was going to fill it, but there was just so much to look at I ran out of time.  I did buy one knitted throw as a birthday gift for Mr Organised (he keeps complaining he doesn’t have one, now he does).  Now that I am home though I can really visualise everything that I saw and have a better idea of how I can re-decorate our lounge room.

I took a lot of photos on the day (warning many photos below), the prices were very reasonable, actually a lot better than I thought they would be. If you are interested in something in particular you can view the prices on the website which I linked to above.

Also see details at the bottom of this post for a special Pottery Barn Kids Giveaway!

The Wiliams-Sonoma store is filled with kitchen goodies, from gorgeous dinner, saucepan and knife sets to napery, kitchen utensils and the most decorative bowls.

That’s fresh fruit.  You can try the appliances (in this case the range of juicers) before you buy.  I think this is a brilliant idea to get a feel for how the machine works, will make it easier to choose which brand you prefer.

At the back of the Williams-Sonoma store is a world first  in-store cooking school

Onward to the next store which was West Elm, I’d actually never heard of this store, so was interested to see how different this style is to Pottery Barn.  Instantly I fell in love because I saw a gorgeous arrangement of beautifully coloured vases.

It’s said that West Elm is for the eclectic and crafty decorators, the colour tones were very different to what I ended up seeing in Pottery Barn. West Elm had alot of bold colour and a relaxing autumn feel.

I spotted these bowls, aren’t they pretty!

As soon as I stepped into Pottery Barn I knew these were the colours to suit my home.  We have dark mahogany wooden furniture, which I am trying to tone down with neutral colours like beige and whites.

Very elegant

Funky jars, but what I really did love was the table runners underneath.  Unfortunately there were too long for my table.

Cute dinner set!

I loved the pattern on this rug, I have been searching for a rug for a long time, it’s just not a purchase I would rush into, I think I procrastinate a bit when it comes to home decor, I really have to make sure I like it before i buy it.  They also have this rug in porcelain blue, either would look great in our lounge room.

There was nothing but cuteness in this store, I may have forgotten to take a few photo’s because I was taking it all in.  I was asked when looking in this shop what I thought.  Strangely at the time I said to the Australian market this is life changing, OK, life changing is not the right words, but it certainly will change the way we shop.  Many stores already have cute bedroom sets, but Pottery Barn Kids go beyond the cute sets, with the lovely furniture, floor rugs, playroom toys, desk accessories and so much more.

They have a huge range of all different quilt and sheet sets, I forgot to take a photo of my favourite (which would suit a tween).  Can you spy the funky chairs in the top of the photo, they can be personalised with names monogrammed on the slip covers and they can be easily removed and washed!

They can monogram just about anything, blankets, pillow covers, chair covers, towels and more

This vanity table is the sweetest!

In my craft room I use a carousel to hold my pens, it is no longer in made and available for purchase by it’s manufacturer.  I was excited when I found these at Pottery Barn, I am waiting on a phone call to confirm if they come in white as well!  Will let you know.

Cluck, cluck, aren’t these cute!

Gift ideas, and you can see in the right of the photo chevron baby sheet sets!

Now, I am kicking myself that I didn’t buy this cutie, it’s on my wish list.

This is a modular system, all different pieces, build it to suit your space.

We were given a lot of information on the day but in summary:

  • If you find something in store and it isn’t in stock they will delivery it to your door free of charge
  • You can order online, see their websites for full shipping details
  • They offer an in home design service.  They will come into your home to help you decorate your lounge room, bedroom or decorate for a party, whatever you need really.  Plus there is no obligation to buy. I like this idea because I was absolutely overwhelmed with all their beautiful ornaments I just couldn’t choose one to take home, worried it was the wrong colour.

Special thanks to Pottery Barn Kids you have a chance to win a New Mum Gift Pack, valued at $178.  Pack includes: white diaper basket containing a bath wrap, swaddling blankets, swaddling sack and diaper caddy

Simple leave a comment below telling me:

If you could have one Pottery Barn (from any of the 4 stores) product what would it be?

Entries are for Australian residents only, one entry per person, giveaway closes midnight Thursday 23rd May.  This is not a random drawer, most creative answer will win.

Ahhhhhh the pure bliss that is Pottery Barn – the source of many beloved pins and also much mournful pining (and pinning!) over the computer screen! This item I drooled over a very long time ago – I think it is an amazing and beautiful way to store memories or special items found on your travels and I even think I could get the seashore inside via some shells for those of us who are not fortunate enough to live anywhere near the ocean! http://www.potterybarn.com/products/bacchus-table-bedside-lamp/?pkey=ctable-bedside-lamps

I don’t even have to look at the websites to know my answer to this question. I’m 37 weeks pregnant with our first baby, a little girl, and I would just adore the Harper cot bedding. It’s easily the nicest cot bedding I’ve seen, and I’ve been swooning over it for weeks!

If I could only buy one item I would buy one of those cute child sofa chairs with my daughter’s name on it. She is 1 and loves climbing and sitting on sofas. Having her own would make her super excited and I think she’d have a world of fun with it and feel very special to have her own chair. Also, as she grows older, she’ll be able to appreciate that it has her name on it and it would be something special for just her.

Having said that, I love EVERYTHING and wish I could buy hundreds of items in each store 🙂

But the carousel from Pottery Barn would be little saviour

As soon as I saw the picture of the modular system I nearly fell off my chair!!!! That is exactly what I want/need/must have/wished for/longed for/always wanted (I could go on) – for my craft needs. At the moment my craft area looks like a dog’s breakfast and really is very unmotivating as whenever I want to do something I can’t seem to find what I need to use. I am looking at the picture imagining in what drawers, cupboards, etc, I would put all my things, how I would set it up, how it will be used to its full potential. It is just absolutely perfect.

My beautiful daughter Caitlin waited 6 and a half years to become a sister, (what she always wanted to be) to my gorgeous baby boy Max. I would just love the Sister sign for her bedroom as it simply states exactly what she is to little Max. He is very much a miracle baby and the smile on Caitlins face when she first met him was so priceless. She lives the virtues on this sign on a daily basis to Max, so I will have to go on line and buy it for her.Thanks for sharing these beautiful products on your blog.

I adore the modular unit and I could see that in many rooms of my home. I first came across Pottery Barn while travelling in Canada and the USA back in 2004 and I have drooled over catalogues for some years now. Visually their catalogues are divine and a showpiece in their own right. I have kept a Christmas one from years ago that I still return to, to get inspiration. I am so happy to hear that they are now in Australia and I will be even more excited when they venture into Queensland. It is a bold move in the so called economic climate to come to Australia but good taste and quality is always in fashion and I’m sure they will do very well here in Oz. Love it all!!

I would love the Sis.ter wall mounted board. Though my sister is 75, she has just moved into a retirement village and this board and wording would not only bring her joy as she remembers her family but would also brighten up her small room.

I would love the modular system. I love how you can create it the way that you like. My daughter is very limited for space & I have been considering something like that recently. I LOVE THAT ONE 🙂

I am LOVING the Abbot Zinc-Top Island, it’s EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for!
Can’t WAIT till one opens here in Western Australia!!!!! But the one product I want the very most would have to be the gorgeous vanity table – for the apple of my eye, my gorgeous Goddaughter. It suits her bubbly personality perfectly!

I have my eye on the PB Kids Comfort Glider & Ottoman, it looks so comfy that it wouldn’t matter if I happen to nod off there once the midnight feed is done!

I would totally love the modular unit….my 4 year old daughter is a mess a holic and this unit would help me keep her things out of site but still beautifully presented and I’d be proud to have the unit on display without the mess…..we live far from ikea and target, so this would be just wonderful for us.

We have just moved to a new house and am seriously considering a trip to Sydney just to shop at these stores in person!!! Our new place has a playroom space and I can see a modular unit doing wonders for organisation not to mention adding gorgeous character to the room.

Definitely the Carolina Craft Table from Pottery Barn Kids. Love that it grows with the child, the accessories you can add to it and that there is plenty of room for lots of children (& Mum and dad too) to participate in hands on activities. This certainly puts our little table to shame and certainly on my wish list once my youngest son is ready for craft/construction style play with his older brother.

This is going to sound like a suck-up job but, like you, I’ve been wanting the perfect rug for a long time (cue Trent Reznor 😉 ).

Months ago, I found one just like the one you show above, in grey and all! An interior designer on FB posted that she could have such a rug made to customer specifications and I thought my search was over … but she didn’t get back to me, via FB or by email. From your post I now know that PB have one. It’s meant to be!

There are so many beautiful things. But the item that I would love so I could give it to my girls who are 8 years apart is the ‘Sister’ sign. Sometimes when they are so far apart in age it is difficult for them to be close.

Hi Katrina, love your blog. Just need to let you know, given the significant hype surrounding the opening of Pottery Barn, just how appalling this company’s customer service really is. I waited three weeks for an online order and after numerous calls was told they had lost the order and they offered me a refund of a substantial order amount. I still could not get them to give me my refund and had to take legal action. This company is all form and no substance. All the unsuspecting mums out there who are persuaded by their beautiful and clever marketing need to be informed about this. This is a very large company with very bad systems around payment. Keep your great blog posts coming. Regards.

Thank you for this post Chris. Although I am 2 months late in reply to your post, I wanted to get my message across. I ordered something for my daughter from Pottery Barn Kids Australia through their online website in May 2013, I am still waiting for that item to arrive and it is now August. I rang them and was told the item will be arriving in September. I am appalled and will NEVER advocate for them or use them again…Obviously.

WARNING – DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM POTTERY BARN ON BACK ORDER

My husband and I purchased a sofa in September 2013. We were told it would take 16 weeks for delivery. So in January 2014 – we were very excited that our sofa was going to be delivered – to no avail! We were sent a notification by Pottery Barn – the DAY BEFORE THE SOFA WAS DUE TO BE DELIVERED ADVISING IT WONT BE DELIVERED UNTIL APRIL 2014 – 7 MONTHS LATER. The biggest issue – Pottery Barn take upfront payments so they have our money. A second item of furniture that we ordered that was supposedly in stock and to be delivered that week still has not arrived. We have been advised 3 different amendment dates so far. Each time, a day before the delivery date, we are sent a new notification.
