The Elwood Home | Cosh Living


The Elwood Home, designed by Fieldwork Architects is one of four townhouses that sit along the Elster canal.

Built on the traditional lands of the Yaluk-ut Weelam Clan, the home elegantly captures the heritage of place and its surroundings, referencing the myriad of tones and textures found right outside it’s door.  The design of the home celebrates a connection of indoors with outdoors, the Australian narrative strengthened with furniture selections from Kett, which are all designed and made on home soil.

On the top floor of the home, the master bedroom is set amongst the treetops. This bedroom is populated by Kett’s Otway bedroom collection, creating a calm sanctuary. The Otway collection is defined by soft timber profiles inspired by towering mountain ash, settled fern gullies and forest canopies.  The elegant profile of the Otway Bed curves around its upper edges with piping details in aniline leather, a sophisticated touch. Two Otway Night Tables introduce balance into the space. Made from oak and stained in colour ‘Light Walnut’ these night tables are the perfect size to store all your treasured items at arm’s reach, with a contemporary minimal look.

Continuing the modern elegance of the home, we shift focus to the living room. The open plan living space is adjacent to the outdoors, with generous bi-fold doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the canal. This space truly is the heart of the Elwood property, providing the perfect place to lounge in comfort and style. The Erskine collection draws inspiration from the beautiful Victorian coastline – the undulating topography leading into Erskine Falls, water cascading from up on high into a lush tree-fern gully. The dramatic sweep of the sofa’s arms references these natural curvilinear forms, whilst the French seam rises and continues along a ‘ridge’ and back down the other side. Upholstered in an exquisitely full and textured Australian wool boucle, the warm neutrals are reminiscent of soft clouds and mist that grace the valley.

The Erskine is designed with generous proportions, available in a two-seater, 3-seater, lounge chair and modular options. Each variation of the Erskine is crafted with luxurious comfort and exceptional detail as its priorities. This new collection includes a striking coffee table. The Erskine coffee table’s soft lines are in conversation with those of the Erskine sofa, two solid timber planes held in tension. Refined rounded legs confidently counter the gentle curve, intersecting the two surfaces. The planes elevate objects from the floor and provide a locale for books, objects, and plants.

Each piece inside the Elwood home was carefully selected to marry core values of the homeowners and that of Melbourne Designer, Justin Hutchinson. The furniture in this home celebrates true Australian craftsmanship and an incredible level of precision taken from design through to execution. The thoughtful finishes and timeless quality of this home are translated with ease. Modern Australian living has been perfectly executed within this property, and it’s one that Kett has been proud to have been a part of.
