For the love of lockers… is their Instagram bio, and yes, we couldn’t explain it any better. Mustard Made is a brand of THE most fantastic, beautifully made lockers we have ever seen!
Mustard made is a brand born by two sisters Becca and Jess. “It started with a long walk. We were walking by the ocean talking, as we often did, about starting a business together. Two sisters, living opposite sides of the planet.
The idea was sparked by the question: What is it that you love that is uniquely you?
Becca thought about her home + studio… She had a random selection of metal lockers. One flaky old one found on the side of the road, a few from antique stores and some new. She’s always had a thing for lockers.”
From that day the sisters began work. They researched, read, dreamed, brainstormed, wrote lists, and did more research!
“So then we took a gamble. We booked a space at a trade show in Sydney + prepared for launch. Samples were made, photos were taken, branding nailed + list after list got ticked off. It was happening”, say Becca and Jess.
The sisters are quick and keen to thank everyone who allowed them to get to where they are today. From babysitting favours to borrowing cars and props to asking everyone and anyone for opinions on their prototypes, everything was indispensable and still is.
I asked them what styles they’d pick for the interiors of a kid’s bedroom:
Wardrobe – “for a baby I’d start with one SKINNY and add more as they grow. The shelves are adjustable so as their hanging clothes get longer you just move the shelves down.”
Chest of drawers – “a great alternative is the MIDI, it’s nice you can shut everything away and all the mess is hidden inside! Good for books.”
Toy cabinet – “The LOWDOWN is great for young kids because they can reach the top and use it as a play surface. Also good for hiding toys in the living room under the tv.”
Changing table – “the MIDIis a good height (unless you are very short!!) It’s nice to be able to lock all the baby things away safely too.”
It’s safe to say that Mustard Made has thought of everything and can very much decorate your home, for your every need! Thanks girls!
