Barang has an eclectic mix of all things, capturing your attention as soon as you enter the fun and edgy concept store. Located 41-43 Gawler St, Mt Barker, Barang stocks wonderful and artistic home wares, gifts and furniture sourced from over 16 countries across the globe.
Brothers TJ & Jesse Sekhon, founders of Barang wanted to bring an exciting and colorful shopping experience to the Adelaide market.
Working and living all over the world the brothers’ wide travels have allowed them to source and curate a very special selection from all corners of the globe inspired by quality and functionality.
“Travelling the world, we wanted to find things that brought a splash of colour and fun to our lives. Barang does this and we love seeing the excitement when customers find something just right,” said Jesse.
A focus of ours is to curate a selection which resonates with people and to provide an opportunity for folks to express their individuality within their living spaces. The stimulation from seeing shoppers engaging with different products is very satisfying and creating an engaging, energising environment takes a lot of our attention.
The store has a contemporary feel and we have used industrial materials like metal framing and teak boxes to create a roof space that interacts with products in the store. We want people to have a different shopping experience; we incorporated silver birch trees and windows through the store in Norwood to bring the “outside” inside.
“The range is rather large! Occasional furniture with a difference, décor with colour or attitude, one of the broadest collections of shawls/scarves in Adelaide, olive wood tableware from Tunisia, woven baskets from Botswana, contemporary & traditional jute rugs, Kilims from Afghanistan, ceramics from Spain and Italy, “Frida Kahlo” embroidered cushions, some of the coolest mirrors you will find in leather, timber, metal, Guatemalan fabric based pieces, Timorese ancestral sculptures, a range of ottomans/pouffes in leather, canvass and cotton..the list just goes on (and on and on)!
