Soft furnishings make up a large part of every home and we love beautiful soft furnishings nearly as much as we love our beautiful linen! When we came across Halcyon Lake, a Melbourne based textile company for carpet and rugs, we knew we were onto a good thing.
Just like us here at HMCo, Halcyon Lake have a strong desire for sourcing the best artisans and craftsmanship throughout Europe. They understand that the Europeans have long been masters of their trades and are unrivalled when it comes to using the best techniques and processes which have been mastered over hundreds of years.
Established in Melbourne since 1984 by Noel Kiely, Halcyon Lake is a supplier of high quality hand knotted / hand woven rugs and carpets. Their motto is ‘buy once, buy well’ and we couldn’t agree with this more. Halcyon Lake has always been one step ahead when it comes to bringing beautifully crafted pieces to Australia and they were the first importer back in the 1970’s to bring Berber rugs to us here in Australia.
With an ever growing collection, they have moved into their new Melbourne showroom which has been designed by the highly renowned design firm, Hecker Guthrie. Halcyon Lake showroom has a very Nordic feel about it, representing a slice of Scandinavia with white walls and neutral showroom, creating a fresh and open space filled with thoughtfully curated and considered objects, including rugs, furniture, lights and greenery. All of this works together perfectly to create a space that allows the distinctive colours and textures of their textiles to be the main standout feature in the showroom.
Travelling often to connect with their makers and manufactures allow Halcyon Lake build long standing relationships and ensure that their rugs and carpets are made with integrity and have careful attention to detail to make them all last the test of time.
