Jason and Dani, are the duo behind JAYD, a brand that has come to life quite organically through their passion for unique furniture and decor within their own home.
A few years ago they bought their first “fixer-upper” home where they got to properly experiment with design, decor and furnishings.
"There is something quite wonderful that happens when you create something that is both literally and figuratively made with your blood, sweat, tears and most importantly LOVE."
Growing up in his grandfather's workshop, Jay naturally acquired a passion and talent for all things DIY, more specifically woodworking. He learnt craftsmanship and skill from both his gramps and dad and is the magician behind Dani's wild ideas (read demands).
They realised that there is a higher appreciation for custom designed decor, and it is one of the main reasons why Dani began this journey with JAYD. She believes that, they as a couple, have something to share with you within the small business and shop-local platform.
Finding beautifully made, artisanal type furnishings that compliment your unique style is what makes the experience so wonderful.
"JAYD is a dream come true, one that has been ten years in the making and how exciting to be able to share that within our community. "
WHY I LOVE THEM
I have been friends with Jason for about ten years and was over the moon when he met my now taller bestie Dani.
If someone had told us 5 years ago that we would be working for ourselves as Girl Bosses in our Local Community we probably would have rolled our eyes before ordering a large cappuccino or an even larger glass of wine.
To watch my bestie pursue a dream and be at her side along the way is honestly such a blessing. From the initial JAYD brainstorming sessions to behind the scenes sneak peeks of the website build, as well as, seeing product shoot images come together, it's been the most amazing thing to watch this brand develop.
Knowing the two people that founded JAYD as well as I do, makes it impossible for me not to love who they are and the way they approach this passion.
Impeccable taste, passionate workmanship and a love for creating together is what this pair is about.
I have a feeling you are going to love them too.
THIS MONTHS CURATIONS
ON MY WISHLIST
The JAYD shelves are all made from solid oak. Classic and unique, each piece tells the story of its life with different grains and knots detailing the wood.
The Ally shelf is handmade using an 8mm steel round bar, to form an incredible rectangular bracket set which supports the platform for all your decorative goodies.
The brackets are inspired by minimalism and yet are full of personality which create a sensational statement piece for your home.
SIENNA WALL HOOK
set of 3
ON MY WALL
A beautifully handmade collection of solid oak disks that add a touch of style to your wall.
I have three sets of these in my home. Excessive? Perhaps.
But I love how they allow me to change up my wall decor easily, as often as I like.
If you are looking for a way for showcase some of your favourite things, the Sienna wall hooks might very well be your solution.
JADE PLANT STAND
ON MY WISHLIST
The wonderful earth tones of oak used for the Jade stands create a neutral centre piece for any space. I have house plants all over my home and to be honest, I am running out of surfaces to put them on. If you think that is going to stop me collecting them however, then you are very mistaken.
I love that these plant stands, in varying heights, assist with displaying beautiful plant babies all over the home. A wonderful addition to any living room, verandah or even your spare bathroom.
