HOUSE OF ABBEY GINNS + BRYCE WILLIAMS

If you haven’t yet been acquainted with Huski Studios, allow us to introduce you and make all of your furniture dreams come true.

Huski Studios is Australia’s most exciting new furniture brand that fuses timeless design, exceptional craftsmanship and high quality, ethically-sourced materials to create products that are not only made to last, but that are guaranteed to turn your house into a home.

Founded by Abbey Ginns and Bryce Williams, Huski Studios was born from a mutual love of design and beautiful forms, and since launching late last year, it’s designs have been winning the hearts of interior lovers all over the country.   

Unsurprisingly, Ginns and Williams’ home is filled with the collection's pretty-meets-practical pieces — and it's as dreamy as you’d expect. The creative duo — and their baby daughter, Woodi — welcomed us into their picture-perfect Sunshine Coast abode and it is proof that we all need a little Huski in our lives.

What do you love about the neighbourhood you live in?

"Our property backs on to a local farm and we are surrounded by trees — we are often greeted by kookaburras and even the occasional cow. You can smell the gum trees as well."

 How would you describe the style of the home? 

“It’s a classic cottage which has been renovated — you feel completely safe and at home here.”

What sort of home is yours? Is it an entertaining house or your sanctuary? 
“A little bit of both — we have the deck out the back which is perfect for barbeques and entertaining, but on the other hand, it’s a really cosy cottage and definitely our sanctuary. We love being at home.”

What has influenced the design style and decorating of the house?  

“I think my style has just developed over time. I don’t have a defined influence, but I guess I just love things that are beautiful, minimal and useable. We love neutral colours, natural light, plants and simple furnishings.”

What is your favourite item in the home and why? 
The Necessary — a free-standing floor-to-ceiling teak mirror from our
Huski Studios collection. It’s a feature piece which is perfect for any space — it makes a room feel so much bigger and brighter."

What was your biggest splurge for your home? 

“Luckily enough we have our own furniture company! We basically filled the house with main pieces from our collection and sourced second hand, vintage items so we didn’t really have to splurge too much.”

 

“WE LOVE NEUTRAL COLOURS, NATURAL LIGHT, PLANTS AND SIMPLE FURNISHINGS.”

What was the last thing you purchased for your home? 

“An olive tree for the front door.”

What was the inspiration behind launching Huski Studios? How did the story begin?
“We were both living in Bali when we took a lease on a semi run-down villa. It almost broke us but we spent a few months slowly doing the place up and designing our own furniture to fit the space. When friends and family came to visit us, the positive comments and feedback in regards to the furniture we had designed was incredible. From there we literally put every cent we had into bringing Huski Studios to life.”

Where did the name Huski Studios come from?
“We were discussing names for our first baby and Huski came into the discussion — we loved it so much we thought it would fit perfectly as the name of our new business.”

“WE WERE DISCUSSING NAMES FOR OUR FIRST BABY AND 'HUSKI' CAME INTO THE DISCUSSION — WE LOVED IT SO MUCH WE THOUGHT IT WOULD FIT PERFECTLY AS THE NAME OF OUR NEW BUSINESS.”

 

If you could only choose three Huski Studios pieces to have in your home, what would they be?

"The Being — it's the couch we love having a wine on at the end of the day and playing with our little darling Woodi.

The Necessary — this beautiful mirror that lives in our living room opens up the entire home and we would be lost without it.

The Golden — we love nothing more than a lazy morning in bed and what better way to do it than in The Golden."

What’s next for Huski Studios?

“Like any new business we are learning so much with every day that passes. We are focused on refining our products and continually growing at a sustainable rate.”
