This week we visited Byron Bay lifestyle brand Island Luxe to ask about the inspiration behind their beautiful stores.
“Island Luxe was established in December 2007 after 8 years travelling the world for inspiration. The concept is based around the experience of our Nomadic existence, and recreating the feel of a luxurious gypset lifestyle without pretension.
Each detail of the store has been thought out and created to touch on all of our senses from the exotic music to the smell of fresh coconut and aged leather, and the textures of the finest fabrics.
Once inside clients discover an interior style inspired by a love of nature and a deep emotion towards the nobility in humble objects like a peasants bed from Pakistan, an old leather oil pot from a gypsy tribe in India or a farmers work bench battered over time.
Island Luxe collaborate with local artisans wherever possible to produce exclusive one off accessories and furniture, making each piece unique to every client.
The Island Luxe team are trained over time to realise that true style transcends fashion and in this regard help each client to find his or her own style instead of adhering to current trends.
We were honoured to be able to expand our family in December 2010 and offer our clients a different aspect to our Island Luxe lifestyle by opening Island Luxe Tribe.”
Island Luxe currently have two stores – “Island Luxe” in Bangalow, and “Island Luxe Tribe” in Byron Bay. These pictures were taken in their Island Luxe Tribe store, which showcases tribal inspired homewares, clothing and artefacts.
