{at the shops: the society inc.}


could spend hours browsing through the society inc., a “haberdashery meets hardware” store that specialises in local and global textiles, furniture, homewares and beautiful things . . .

began by sydney-born interior stylist sibella court in an 1800s corner shop in paddington, NSW, the society inc. changes its contents and interior 4 times a year, transporting visitors into another world:

above, beautiful things from the paperwhites theme, inspired by paper ephemera & beachcombing, creamy whites and soft, whispery silver & golds and barely-there pinks, vintage mother of pearl, and lovely old crepe papers . . .
