Thousands of years of history are behind every object at Bisonhome. Creative director Brian Tunks founded ceramics label Bison in 1997 after spending years at archaeological digs in the Middle East analysing ancient pottery techniques and designs. Twenty years on, the label has expanded to Bisonhome, a lifestyle range of Tunks' simple and elegant designs, which include ceramic milk bottles, teacups and jugs, and glass carafes and vases. The sleek items are also used by businesses across the region, including Japanese-inspired cafe Kyo Coffee Project and chic eatery eightysix — so you can easily mirror the tableware you were admiring over brunch in your own home.

Alongside this store in Braddon and a warehouse in Pialligo, the Bisonhome team has launched a chic new retail space inside a 100-year-old chaplain house in Pialligo, which is worth a visit, too.
