#SheSociety rounds up this week’s newest finds

Chic furniture for your kitties!

The newest pet-friendly designs to catch our eye is this super-chic collection by Japan’s Okawa Kagu.

The new campaign entitled “craftsman MADE” is intended to reinvigorate the once-prosperous craft industry of Japan’s Fukuoka prefecture region. Home to 150 furniture-manufacturing factories, Okawa Kagu came up with the idea to merge the internet’s love for cats with the skills of local artisans. The new production took existing full-scale designs and down-sized them to produce high-quality miniature versions that satisfy even the fussiest of felines.

The collection comprises of a pine wood sofa designed and produced by Hiromatsu Furniture, and a dark wood cat bed designed and produced by Tateno Mokuzai.

You can view the pieces at Okawa Terrazza—an information center with a focus on highlighting local design. Each product is available through the respective manufacturers.

A new coastal restaurant – Pipit – opens in Northern NSW

Pipit Restaurant is a new contemporary Australian restaurant by award-winning chef Ben Devlin and partner Yen Trinh.

Having grown up in Byron Bay, Ben feels a strong personal connection to establish his young family and first restaurant in this region.  Set in the coastal town of Pottsville (between Gold Coast and Byron Bay), Pipit’s menu will be a celebration of the Northern Rivers’ coastal lifestyle, great produce and wood-fired cooking.

Harnessing his existing connections to local landscapes, farmers and producers – Pipit will have a seasonally-changing al-a-carte menu of about 12 dishes, with options of 4 or 7 course set tasting menus for those wishing to have a full creative journey.   Supporting the coastal ethos, the wine list is focused on Australian and international wineries located within 150kms of a coastline where mineral content and saline soils help varieties pair well with the style of food.
