Just fix your eyes on this story of this amazing Interior Design store right in the heart of one of our favourite towns in Tasmania, Australia – Penguin. Penguin was discovered in 1861 as a Timber Town, & is now one of the prettiest & trendiest coastal towns we were fortunate to visit several times on our visit to Tasmania.
We stayed there several times too, whilst on our 8 week Sandi Hands Sanding Glove marketing visit. Each time we stayed perched right on the waterfront in the reknowned Penguin Caravan Park – simple but stunning, this place was exceptional. The managers are so lovely & welcomed us back each time we pulled in & always on first name basis.
Whilst going for one of many walks through Penguin we stumbled on this amazing store right smack bang in the center of town, right on the beachfront & in a gorgeous historical building dated 1888. Right at the forefront of this eye-popping building was Cocoon Design – an awesome store that just keeps you breath taken as you meander through all its decked out design filled rooms. It feels so homely, so trendy, so eclectic, industrial, beachy – you name it – they have it! From there own recycled items to new and amazingly modern pieces, lending very much to the here & now of interior design.
The minute I walked in I was hooked & couldn’t stop viewing every little detail. As I made my way from several rooms out to the back open spaced room just filled with such amazing design aura, I was warmly greeted by Karen, one of the owners of this amazing establishment. I could not help but fix my eyes on the opening doors out on to the beach just beyond the historic train line that is a big feature along the whole top coastline. It is fun, authentic, so trendy, so stunningly captivating & so warm, from it’s interior through to the greeting you receive as you walk in.
Once I showed Karen our Sandi Hands Sanding Glove range, she was so complimentary and amazed at our products. She could not wait to show her partner in business, Linda, the stock. Received warmly again the next visit I am proud to say “We are now very happy to have our Sandi Hands stock displayed & available in the Cocoon Design Store at Penguin“.
While you are there getting your Sandi Hands Sanding Gloves, make sure you just take the time to peruse everything they have – there is so much variety and you MUST allow time to just enjoy and take it all in, & of course purchase something for your home or someone you love’s home !!! You won’t be able to resist this one !!!
