Ken Done and Sheridan collaborate once more to hit you right in your childhood feelings

Anyone who lived through the 1980s would undoubtedly have fond memories of the work of Ken Done. Even if it wasn’t in your own house, odds are you would instantly recognise his vibrant, abstract art splashed over doonas and cushions across the country at the time. This was the result of an iconic partnership with beloved textiles company Sheridan, capturing the essence of Ken’s amazing work and giving his art a new life as something even more accessible and relatable. Ken has picked up the paintbrushes once more for a second collaboration with the textile giant, marking 50 years of Sheridan making some of the country’s favourite products for the home. more

Although hydroponic systems allow for bigger and healthier growth, the idea that it takes a while to set up dissuades many. Future Farms is shaking up the connotations associated with the word hydroponic, creating a range of low-maintenance herb planters that allow users to grow seeds easily. more
