Something new has been brewing at Urban Nest!
Over the past few weeks a lot has been happening behind the scenes here at Urban Nest. Our team has been working extra hard in brewing some new ideas for our customers and the community and we have worked on creating special spaces in our showroom just for you!
First things first, we wanted to welcome Doing Goods into our Urban Nest family! The newest addition is no exception, we’ve been eyeing this very popular Dutch brand for quite some time now. Doing Goods "the world's most lovable home accessory brand!" is 100% handmade and sustainable homeware company based in the Netherlands and with the team of craftsmen in India.
The Doing Goods artisanal collection of fun and one-of-a-kind accessories fits perfectly to our selection with their handmade animal rugs, brass goods, and throws inspired by the traditional techniques and artisanal crafts of India. Although their goodies are mostly made for the home, their beautiful cotton throws can be used to style your outdoors this season too!
One of our favorite items from this brand is the Faina Throw. Handmade and printed with carved wooden blocks, this throw is so versatile, you can use it indoors and outdoors. Perfect for an outdoor picnic, beach session or even your next family barbeque! Style it with some HKliving Matt white porcelain vases and the HKliving Athena Ceramic Dinner Plates. Complete the table with some contemporary glassware from Puik, the Rare Vase and Radient Crystal Glasses will tie it all in together!
Block printing is one of the earliest, simplest and slowest of all methods of textile printing, with everything being hand-made, all Doing Goods products are “wabi sabi”- imperfect things, with their own unique stories.
The Pink Leopard Throw is also another one of our picks, more specifically because you can see the hard work put into the block print, each detail showcased and also it’s diverse look! Lay it over your bed or sofa for a cozy feel, have a picnic or even style it over your outdoor coffee table as a table cloth. And this is what we absolutely love about the brand, endless possibilities to be creative with your textiles!
Let’s move on shall we. Curious to see what we’ve been working on behind the scenes? Wait no more, we’re super excited to introduce you to our newly re-vamped showroom featuring a brand new Coffee Corner, Co-working Space, Events Space and a brand new Creatives Area- The Cube.
Feel right at home at Urban Nest, we created a new hang-out space for creatives and entrepreneurs, a homegrown concept store, coffee shop, co-working and event space all entwined in one! Just like a nest, our vision is to create a cozy and comfortable space for everyone. Whether you’d like to have a meeting with your client in the downstairs coffee area, simply work quietly in the upstairs mezzanine floor, or even if you are looking for a cool space for a pop-up or an event, we’ve got you covered!

For weeks, we have been working on the space—slowly settling in amid a lot of constructions and installations, and placing final touches! We have put in a lot of effort in making sure that our new nest has the Urban Nest vibe, while still being warm, inviting and extra special the moment you first walk through our doors.
