Welcome to Marlo & Co Living. I’m Miranda, Owner and Chief Cushion Lover!
I’ve loved homewares and soft furnishings for as long as I can remember, and I also absolutely live for Summer and long days spent outside.
After the idea to create an outdoor cushion collection came to mind, it was almost like it was such an obvious thing for me to do that I don't know why I didn't do it earlier! When I first started researching and developing my debut range I noticed there wasn't a lot of unique designs that also had the features and benefits required for outdoor homewares.
From this, I knew I didn't want to create just any old product, I wanted amazing, colourful and funky designs that aren't currently available on the market and I also wanted to create a range that could actually survive the Australian climate.
This first range is all of those things and I'm excited to see it all come to life. These cushions are definitely there to be seen and are not designed to blend into the background! They are bright, loud, fun and in your face (kinda how my friends and family would describe me haha).
I'm also very proud to say that they are Australian designed, printed and handmade. The decision to keep the manufacturing in Australia was a non-negotiable for me. Having said that, it wasn't an easy process but I am so glad I stuck to my guns and am now proudly producing a quality product right here at home.
Like so many other businesswomen out there, one of the main reasons for creating Marlo & Co is my son, Arlo. He is a typical ball of energy and the absolute love of my life (along side my very supportive husband). This crazy 18 month old turned my world upside down in the best way possible when he arrived and is now the driving force behind my ambition and desire to prove you can do anything you set your mind to. It sounds so cliché, but it really is true.
And so here we are! My goal is to bring modern, stylish and colourful pieces to people all over Australia! We are all about original designs that look ahhhmazing!
I'm excited to see where this adventure takes me and I look forward to having you along for the ride.
Thanks for being here and supporting my small business!
