Lilly & Lolly has its 20 year anniversary this year! As a leading brand for children for all this time, they pride themselves on producing high quality handcrafted children's furniture. Bringing together whole rooms to 'Create Inspiring Spaces for Kids'.
How did it all start?
Lilly & Lolly had
its genesis as a linen company selling cushions at Paddington Markets in Sydney
in 1998. Ashling Punnett, the founder, an interior designer, stylist and
all-round creative, took her innovative and bright prints to the markets sitting
alongside other well known fledgling Australian brands such as Zimmerman and
Collette Dinnigan. Testing the designs at Paddington Market proved very
successful. Demand for the product grew as there was a gap in the market
for not only cushions, but bedding for children in general.
L&L was established in the market place very quickly, with a small outlet in the southern suburbs of Sydney, a website and an active wholesale department to take the brand to the rest of Australia. It was approximately 6 years into Lilly & Lolly's existence, that another gap in the market for well designed children's furniture to showcase designer linen became apparent. The team launched the inaugural collection of L&L high quality furniture. The aesthetic vision was clean, modern and simple to appeal to the new wave of parents looking for designer furniture for their children.
In 2009, Megan Butler, mum of three, with an award winning background in sales, marketing and the creative arts, saw an opportunity to join forces with L&L and expand the business opportunities for the company.
Expansion began for the now booming brand
with retail stores opening in Waterloo, Sydney and Albert Park, Melbourne. With
a new range of furniture and catalogues being shot and shipped to loyal
customers, the L&L brand had become a trusted Australian children's
In 2015 Ashling exited the business and Megan forged through with her vision for L&L. Rosebery was opened on 1st April 2016 and is situated in the heart of the design hub of Sydney. Currently and shortly the Sydney location is on its way back to its genesis with a location in Paddington - yet to be released (watch this space!).
