It’s no secret that Mayfield is becoming a real hot spot for creative minds and those alike. The new kids on the block at Neo Boheme are purveyors of all things unique, beautiful and timeless.
I dropped into their freshly renovated showroom on Maitland Road to have a chat with Ben and Heath, two of the four masterminds behind the homemade furniture store.
Originally starting off as an online store, Neo Boheme has taken a step further to allow customers to see, touch, feel and overall, get a taste for the handmade pieces that will hopefully become a family heirloom in their homes.
Using their own designs, the creative couples build and craft furniture that you wouldn’t find at any old IKEA store.
"We drove through Mayfield and there was just a sense of renewal. It's coming alive, the artists are coming out, even the Café scene. Everyone is getting caffeinated and bouncing ideas, beauty and creativity. It just felt right."
When entering the showroom, you can’t help but wish each custom piece was sitting somewhere in your own home. Neo Boheme’s furniture is refined and durable while still brimming with personality, they are built from sustainably-sourced Australian timbers and as Heath would say 'made with love.'
"We started with the table, it’s the main feature in a home that brings people together, you have conversations there, you eat together."
“It’s the sacred place, the gathering spot for arguments, meals, spending time with your family and friends, the people that you love. If you’re around travelling, it’s the place you come around with people that you are familiar with. Oh and the food, we’re massive foodies."
To stay true to the brands aesthetic, the showroom boasts an impeccable collection of carefully curated handmade pieces from local artists from around the Hunter. If it’s hand crafted wooden spoons or ceramics you’re after, Neo Boheme is the place you need to visit to deck out your home with the trendiest décor available.
So pop in and see the guys at Neo Boheme. No doubt you will leave with a smile and possibly a new addition to your home.
