GIVEAWAY: Room Online

August 13, 2012

My friend  Natasha Stone together with Anne Bouwer run and own Room Online, which is a great local online store that stocks the sweetest things from wooden cake stands, to Honest chocolate to rabbit adorned pillow cases to ceramics to tea towels etc. Their little store has all sorts of things that will make perfect gifts for your friends/family or yourself and the best part is that they are all for speedy delivery. So you see something, you order it and Bob’s your Uncle, it’s at your front door. Nice hey?

– when it comes to craft and design, too often the fruits of the independent designer’s creativity remain hidden away in tiny studios and backrooms, where few can appreciate or acquire these precious gems. this is especially true in south africa, where independent designers typically don’t have the budget or resources to market their goods on a large scale. Room Online hopes to change all that.

The ladies at Room Online have been very nice and given me TWO of these amazing pillows (below) to giveaway to 2 of you guys. And all you have to do is to win either a Kwepie Doll or a rabbit cushion is:

1. Let me know which pillow you want to smother your face into as well as what other item you like from their online store –

2. Follow them on Twitter @roomonline 

3. If you blog or retweet this competition, let me know in your comment and I will enter you again

4. This giveaway is open to absolutely everyone locally and internationally and it will end on the 27th of August 2012

    The bunnies the bunnies the bunnies!! Total loveliness. As for the rest of the shop, I’m a bit in love with the Tree Cups (too bad they’re sold out), and the Travelling Lanterns. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  • Alison August 17, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    The rabbit cushion is beautiful, so I would chose that of the two.

    Secondly, the ceramic teacup has a mystical appeal. It makes me miss a far away place to which I have never been…

  • Simone August 18, 2012 at 2:01 am

    Oh I love the rabbit cushion too. I love bunnies.

    I love the travelling lanterns

    And this is a bit off the point, but from a web design background. If ‘users’ could click ‘rooms’ (aka link) and show all may find a better click through rate within your site. Just a suggestion. Users tend not to have the patience to jump to lots of drop-downs within a category. Lovely shop though.

    Tweeted this too 🙂

  • Natasha August 18, 2012 at 11:51 am

    I love the rabbit pillow. I’ve admired the love milo message mugs for a long time already. Following them on Twitter too.

    Gosh, my boys NEEEED those bunny cushions – they are all things rabbit. Would look so beautiful on their little bunk beds and so good for their little imaginations. I would also totally buy the crate toy boxes and the large Dina teapot. How lovely!

  • zozette August 23, 2012 at 1:02 am

    Having just bought my very first couch, I feel like it is destiny that I have come across this post. I have been completely uninspired by cushions I’ve seen elsewhere, but these would look sooo very lovely on my little Tweed couch.
    So I kindly ask if I could please please please give a loving home to the Kewpie cushion and then ask for a grey bunny one as my online choice. Alternitively, I be just as overjoyed on receiving two bunny cushions of any colour combination.
    Crossing my paws in anticipation! Tweeted and followed! 🙂 @zozette
