Spa 42 Products

Pier 42 Spa Products

We are in the process of launching the Pier 42 Spa products. We have been mixing our own natural products for use in the spa since we opened but we are now formalizing this and packaging them for design store and spa clients so they can gift them or use in the comfort of their own home.

The range is based around 100% pure essential oils, natural herbs & salts without any chemical additives. Products include Bath & Massage Oils, Bath Salts, Body scrubs + Essential oils for use in oil burners/diffusers.

Packaging is simple and we hope purchasers will recycle it after use.We have also been working on our own mosquito/insect repellent oil which will both smell great and repel the biters at the same time ! More on that later.

Indian Candlesticks

Colorful Indian Candlesticks

We are loving these Indian sourced candle sticks.

As colorful ornaments in their own right they add a touch of color and generally uplift any table setting or space. (I have a small one on my desk)

This sort of item can provide the incongruity in an otherwise organized space,  marking, in our opinion, a great interior 🙂

We have them in stock in 2  additional colorways and they are in 3 sizes.

BTW  We will be heading to India on a sourcing trip for Pier 42 Store  in the next few weeks & will blog from there

Retro Bean Bag chair @ Pier 42

We have a number of different Bean bag chairs on offer, choose from one of our exiting fabrics in retro, plain or funky styles or provide your own and we will have it stitched up for you.

The bean bag chair is a late 60’s item conceptualized by Gatti, Paolini & Teodoro. The bag was originally proposed as a fluid filled envelope but excessive weight led to the inspired choice of polystyrene beads.

The Pier 42 store: Design & Curios

Posted on: July 8th, 2011 by robin 8 Comments

The Pier 42 store offers an eclectic range of products:  furniture, textiles, ceramics, linens, clothing & general cool, handmade and artisnally produced products.

The store came about after the many requests we received as to the origin of materials, furniture and products we use in the design and construction of Pier 42 resort.

There is no pre-qualifier for inclusion in the store, its just products that we like and we hope you will too.

Furniture is available for custom order and we can help with sourcing ceramics and one off pieces. We will be addign to the product ranges as we find items and including some new furniture finds that we have under renovation.
