Etsy takes over The Cullen
Etsy.com has partnered with Melbourne hotel, The Cullen, to create an innovative accommodation experience combining local design and contemporary art.
For two weeks in April, guests will have the opportunity stay in a one of a kind junior penthouse suite at The Cullen styled with products available on Etsy.com
Melbourne-based creative duo, Marsha Golemac and Brooke Holm, have curated and styled the suite, located in Prahran, Melbourne.
The products, a mix of handmade and vintage homewares, have been sourced through the Etsy community of makers and finders.
Golemac said Etsy at The Cullen brings together retail, local design, art, and luxury as a rare combination that makes for an exciting and challenging opportunity.
“We’ve sourced products from Etsy designers and artists across Australia to create a ‘home away from home’ hotel setting. We wanted to enhance the lux and artistic elements of The Cullen with exceptional designs from Etsy to create a space that is considered, tasteful, and bursting with character,” she said.
Bookings for the Etsy at The Cullen suite are now open at www.artserieshotels.com.au/cullen/etsy for stays between April 13 to 29.
Etsy at The Cullen will also be open to the public to view on Saturday April 11. This free event will give visitors the opportunity to tour the curated room and learn about the latest trends in homewares.
The products featured in the space will be available for purchase at Etsy.com
Helen Souness, Etsy’s MD for Australia and Asia said, Etsy is delighted to partner with The Cullen.
“We have an incredible range of homewares for sale in our marketplace and it is wonderful to be able to present a carefully curated selection in a contemporary hotel space. It provides us with an unprecedented opportunity to showcase the work of Etsy’s Australian creative community.”
