Fox & Ramona
Introducing Fox & Ramona...
I’m Kristy Tull, the designer and maker behind Fox & Ramona. It all began in 2011 inspired by a love of interior design, homewares and art. After working with different mediums over the years and experimenting with concrete, it quickly became my main love. I love unexpected colour combinations, raw textures and unpredictable finishes.
TDC - Tell us about your brand. What do you do?
Fox & Ramona is a Melbourne based homewares brand offering a unique range of hand crafted concrete products and hand painted concrete planters.
Raw textures with freestyle designs allow for complimentary pieces to mix and match while simple, functional forms make for versatile use.
The organic nature of concrete and the unpredictable making process means no two pieces are ever the same, so you’ll always own an original, unique piece.
All homewares are designed and handmade by me, in my home studio. I work with small suppliers overseas to design planters which I hand paint.
TDC - What sets your brand apart?
I set out to enhance the aesthetic of my products by highlighting the aspects of their creation – I don’t mask imperfections, I revel in them. I aim to combine functionality and art to create products that are unique and contemporary and that blend effortlessly into their environment.
TDC - What design ethos do you live by?
The primary purpose is to create original pieces that draw attention to the simplicity of concrete in its non-traditional form.
TDC - What's your favourite product in your range and why?
My favourite product is the oval concrete tray in pinks and rust. I love a beautiful handwash so I use the trays in my bathrooms and kitchen to sit them on – they’re the perfect size.
TDC - What plans do you have for the future?
I’ve just released a new range which has been a labour of love and a long time coming so as much as I’m just trying to enjoy the moment, I’m currently designing a new range to release later in the year. I’m also really looking forward to some more exciting collaborations coming up this year, so watch this space!
