"Dedicated to showcasing an array of Melburniana, founders Maree Coote and Lex Ridgeway offer a well-edited collection of products for the native and tourist alike. Spanning beautifully-packaged Melbourne map soaps and charming kangaroo chopstick rests to fashionable silk scarves and beaded baubles, the assortment represents some of the city's finest artists and designers."- Coolhunting.com
"There is a time and place for a good souvenir. These really are the most interesting and well-designed souvenir-style gifts I have come across." - THE DESIGN FILES

The Design Files (the webs' most gorgeous collection of information objects and style) has just featured Melbournestyle. We know once you taste The Design Files you'll be addicted!

"A great big love letter to Melbourne!"
In October 2010 interview with the Breakfasters on Melbourne's funkiest RRR FM radio Melbourne, author Maree Coote enjoyed 15 minutes chatting about the book with DJs Fee-B, Ben and Jess who declared The Melbourne Book 'a great big love letter to Melbourne!'

"Here is much more than a store, it is a history lesson, a celebration of all that is uniquely Victorian (including Ned Kelly), somewhere to lose yourself and delight in the sheer creativity on offer (tasteful creativity, of course, in true Melbourne style). It makes souvenir places seem very tacky in comparison. On Clarendon Street South Melbourne, it's the first and only experience of its kind. A visit to Melbournestyle is a must do."
- Extract from RACV's 101 Best things to do in Victoria

"THIS MELBOURNE MECCA IS BANISHING THE CULTURAL CRINGE WITH ITS BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE INTERPRETATIONS OF AUSTRALIAN ICONOGRAPHY."
- HOME BEAUTIFUL magazine


"IF YOU LOVE THIS FABULOUS CITY OR ARE LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT SOUVENIR....."
- HOMESPUN magazine


"There are no flippant inclusions.Everything has a reason for being - a connection to Melbourne or Melbourne people who are doing something special."
- MELBOURNE LIVING Magazine, August 2009
Thanks to the fabulous people at Melbourne Living magazine for their tribute to our tribute to Melbourne.
"E' negozio e galleria questo spot avviato con successo dall'artista Maree Coote, specializzato esattamente nel Melbourne style: arte, moda e oggettistica, tutto disegnato e realizzato in citta."

OMG! OPRAH-According to The Age, (Sat.18/9/10 P.7 news) Melbournestyle's own Melbourne Scarves are the pefect gift for Oprah. And we agree of course. What better memento than 100% pure enourmous 97x97cm expanse of silk luxury, adorned with Melbourne's buildings or parks or flora and fauna? And let's not forget the one that really takes the cake: Melbourne's Famous women scarf called: The List...

AT LAST. THE THORN GLASS HAS ARRIVED- Crikey! What a wait. Sometimes it gets tortuous, bringing you the pretty things... Anyway it's here and its gorgeous. The black is like velvety jet black lava, the lemon, like a half sucked lolly. Ice blue, glassy green, amber and (late but hopefully soon to come) clear.




SINEW AND SILHOUETTE. Form and function. Horse and human. Bushranger and mount. Rock and roll. Could it be more beautiful? This exquisite rockinghorse is the work of Melbourne sculptor Rob Miller. Made for the artist's own daughter, it caught our eye at Melbournestyle... So, now it can be made just for you. Hand carved from cyprus and finished in Japan Black,it is strong enough to hold the weight of an adult, and beautiful enough to never be used. Approx 2m wide by 1m high. SEE MORE
