Introducing the mooiPLANK: Home Beautiful’s first exclusive design collaboration with our 2014 Design Unearthed winner Melanie Muddle from HoutenPlank.
In 2014 Home Beautiful called for budding product designers to submit their own product into our Design Unearthed competition – for a chance to win $10,000 cash & see their product showcased in the pages of the magazine. From the hundreds of entries received, Melanie Muddle (from Newcastle NSW) at HoutenPlank, was the artisan of choice, and the first Creative Collection Collaboration was born with mooiPLANK (Dutch for “beautiful board”), which is now available for Home Beautiful readers to purchase.
“Whether its candles, cushions, tableware, lighting, furniture or artwork, Australia boasts a rich collection of very talented designers,” says Wendy Moore, Editor of Home Beautiful. “Through our Design Unearthed competition we discovered HoutenPlank, and behind it, Melanie Muddle, a women who is a very passionate and talented woodworker. Together we developed the mooiPLANK as the first ever Home Beautiful Creative Collection product – an exclusive opportunity we wanted to share with our readers whilst supporting a local talented designer”.
