Shop profile: Mr & Mrs Smith

It's known for its breathtaking stretch of sand, beachside bars and green smoothie toting locals, but Manly is quickly becoming something of a mecca for the homewares-hungry, too. Take Mr & Mrs Smith - tucked away in Rialto Square, just a block back from the beach (and three minutes from Ben & Jerry's, in case you're wondering), it's an Aladdin's cave of earthly delights, from men and women's fashion to furniture, textiles and trinkets.

Not your usual beachside homewares haunt, the vibe at Mr & Mrs Smith is edgy and bohemian - ornately carved timber-framed mirrors are casually propped up against inky charcoal walls, cowhides line the polished concrete floor and rustic pieces of furniture show off the latest cushion collections from a mix of international and local designers. And rest assured - racks of Scotch & Soda, Willow, Zimmermann and By Malene Birger, among others, will satisfy any clothing cravings. 

Some of our fave local designers can be found here, from Bonnie & Neil's colour-rich cushions to floral-print ceramics by Samantha Robinson. We also unearthed our top Parisian pick - whimsical designs by La Cerise Sur Le Gateau.
