About Us


We source unique, limited edition and designer made product from around the globe. We specialise in pieces of beauty, quality, style and utility with a modern handmade touch for your home. To us minimalism isn't about buying less but buying better.

Supporting small brands using their unique skill and talent to make things by hand while also supporting bigger brands that share our passion for quality craftsmanship, good + thoughtful design and manufacturing with a conscience.

Our collection is curated with a minimalist aesthetic in mind. We prefer a product that speaks softly about what makes it so special. A bowl made from a soft and silky textured rubber. A subtly patterned Italian linen throw. The simplicity of a timber pendant light with a hidden magnet that keeps them clustered together beautifully. Or that limited edition print that only you and a few others will ever own.

The Minimalist is owned by Interior Stylist Leah Taylor. Founded in 2011 from her home + studio space in Sydney’s Surry Hills in the building formerly known as Porters Paints.
