The first time I came across a Step & Gaia cushion it was love at first sight! A super talented artist and interior designer, Stephanie Margaritidis' work has been featured in many fabulous Australian magazines, such as Belle, Vogue Living, House & Garden, and Inside Out. I am so fortunate and excited to be the first New Zealand stockist of her cushions.
From an early age Stephanie was fascinated with interior design. Her life began in Greece, before her family moved to Australia. It was here, at Sydney's College of Fine Arts, that Stephanie completed a degree in fine arts and art education. She also went on to graduate from The Design Centre Enmore with a diploma in interior design.
The homeware range, Steph & Gaia, was born out of a desire to create beautiful products handmade in Sydney using only natural fibres, and often a combination of new and recycled fabrics. Zippers are never used and the emphasis is on bespoke, not mass produced. I'm so enchanted with this, her "Radiant Infant" collection, which draws on her formative memories growing up in Greece. If you love it too, get in quick, as I only have limited numbers - see them all here.
