Empire - 381 Scarborough Beach Rd, Osborne Park

A family run business; Empire is all about elegance and quality and they view their range as collection pieces. They have 5 stores in WA, including Osborne Park, Highgate and Claremont. The furniture and décor at Empire isn’t overbearing but simple and has a Scandinavian feel to it.

Apart from their internationally sourced furniture, they also have their own custom made contemporary range which reflects the relaxed West Australian way of life. The timber used for their custom made range is also sustainably sourced from older non-fruit bearing Mango trees, which makes way for younger trees to flourish and provides extra income for farming communities.

As the furniture here are generally light and minimalistic, it works well in an apartment as its not overbearing and will “lift” any room.

Empire will be closed on Good Friday but open Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday and Monday 11am-5pm. 

Wall Candy – 346 Beaufort Street, Highgate

This isn’t your everyday wallpaper shop! The showroom is inspiring, colourful and great for collecting ideas. Wall Candy Wallpaper import wall coverings from all over the world and are up to date on the latest styles and trends. Their wallpapers range from calm and simple to bold and daring. They even have flamingo wallpaper – yes please!

Why not use wallpaper to make a feature wall in your apartment? If you choose to have one wall as your accent wall, then make sure that the rest of your décor is light so that it doesn’t clash and wear the room down.

They are open on Saturday from 9am-5pm, although closed on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.
