You can find Abode tucked away in Riverside Market's laneways. The beautiful, light filled shop is as well curated as its wares. Every item that graces the shelves goes through a careful selection process. Abode is where you’ll find pieces to create a beautiful environment for your home without breaking the bank or negatively impacting our earth.

The ladies behind the business are firm believers in hygge, the Danish philosophy, which places cosiness and comfort at the centre of wellbeing. And what better way to heal the soul than by enjoying an inviting, warm home? Customers feel instantly welcome stepping into this cheerful store and will find it hard to leave without a purchase or two. Keep an eye out for Abode’s own jewellery range Tomoko, featuring beautiful earrings, necklaces and rings.

While comfort is a key part of Abode’s philosophy, so is sustainability. From face cloths, to dish brushes and compost bins the offerings support simple living that is mindful of the impact we create. Abode stocks eb&ive, HOME by eb&ive, Isle of Mine and HAVEN which together encompass an impressive array of accessories and homewares that are unique, comfortable, affordable and low impact.

One of their favourite sustainable products on offer? The rCUP, a travel mug that’s as portable as it is sustainable. This handy item keeps drinks hot or cold, won’t burn you, can be used on-the-go and is made from recycled coffee cups.

Supporting other local businesses where possible is also important at Abode, and the store stocks locally made ceramic Flying Pigs by Oink. There’s also a great range of stunning mirrors, pots & baskets to help you bring the outdoors in and a multitude of small kitchen utensils so pretty you won’t be hiding them in drawers

Once you’ve picked out that perfect gift (or perhaps a treat for yourself), write a message inside Blenheim made beautiful Little Difference cards, which contribute to reforestation by one tree per every product sold.
