Scoop®ED washbasin by Minosa™ - Modern Corian Hand Basin

Organically formed to provoke evolutionary change in bathing habits, the Scoop®ED washbasin by Minosa™ is a timeless bathroom design piece that exudes a modern style. The quality craftsmanship of this washbasin is evident in every detail from the meticulous selection of material, Corian® to the beautiful way the horizontal and vertical surfaces are seamlessly wrapped & grain matched.

Evoke, Provoke & Evolve!

Minosa™ wanted to push the boundaries of the Modern Luxury Bathroom market by producing a collection of washbasins that questioned all the residential & commercial bathroom market thought was normal! The “big idea” was to dramatically reduce the depth of the basin therefore pushing the market (that was willing to evolve) to question their habits. By reducing the bowl capacity you effectively have to reduce the flow rate coming from the spout in order to prevent splashing. Effectively reducing your water consumption by around 15 thousand litres per year!! The Scoop®ED washbasin will retain 1.4L of water which Minosa considers to be more than enough for people to perform their daily habits such as shaving & face washing.

Away from the water saving qualities of this modern washbasin we also wanted a material that had outstanding environmental qualities. We chose to utilize Corian® as it meets with all of our requirements. Being 100% renewable & having such a range of colours made it the obvious choice for our design team.

The Scoop®ED washbasin has a great range of options; two sizes 900 & 1200 with the option of having the bowls located in the centre, right hand or left hand side. There will also be a double version in two sizes 1600 & 1800mm coming in the very near future.

The Scoop®ED washbasin is a shining example of quality Handcrafted Australian design. Every piece from the Minosa™ collection is hand made to order locally here in Sydney.

Product Description

Did you know that the word 'Tavla' means table in Ancient Arawak' Archeologists discovered that this ancient tribe harvested thin strips of wood from the rare Veneer Tree (Veneerifus Treeus) and formed some of the first dining tables known to man. O.K., so we're making that up. But even a little white lie can't detract from the true beauty of our Tavla Dining Table. A crisp, clean veneer top is anchored by a nearly indestructible steel frame and leg support. The table will look equally good in your dining room or in the office. It is magnificently simple and simply magnificent.

Product Description

Sure, you could get one of those cavernous leafed tables with seating for 22, but what's the point? Better to tend to your sense of style and fashion than to keep a table around that's only used twice a year. This table fills the bill nicely. Big enough to seat a dinner party but small enough that two can hold hands across it during an intimate dinner, our glass-topped dining table is an exercise in simple elegance. With this dining table in your home, you'll look forward to every meal together, large or small.

Product Description

Seat six with plenty of space to spread out for a multi course extravaganza with this well crafted and superbly built table. The silky smooth dark top is almost like glass, creating a striking reflection that plays with the light from above and from the side. The sturdy stainless steel legs are small but strong, so you don't have to worry about your guests sacrificing comfort for an overly verbose, bulbous carved leg. Instead, they have plenty of room to spread out as they enjoy the spread before them. Rarely has a table been so functional yet so attractive.

Product Description

Dining room tables have always been problematic. For daily use, a small table fills the bill well for most families. But it is woefully inadequate when entertaining or having a holiday feast. One option is to lug in the painfully heavy leaves and jostle them into the table's mechanism. This table offers a much more salient approach. The leaf installs effortlessly, allowing you to quickly scale the table to match the occasion.

Product Description

Whether you're planning a holiday extravaganza, a sumptuous buffet or a sit down gourmet meal, space is always at a premium. Who hasn't created a multi course culinary masterpiece, only to find there isn't enough table space? This extendable table is here for you. Running out of room for food and/or guests? Simply pull out the extension and voila – all the space you need for both.

Cushions Of New Decor

Rattan and wooden Thomas Dare furniture and Crucial Trading sisal carpet create a summery feel, while voiles bleach out the windows and bathe the room in light. Shutters give extra privacy and control. The glass-topped table reflects light, enhancing the space. Spiky plants give architectural interest and echo the cushion print.

Patterned purple wallpaper teamed with an antique-style mirror creates a focal point out of the fireplace in this dramatic living room. The purple of the walls is mirrored in a rich aubergine rug and ottoman. An opulent combination of rich fig shades and glistening silver accessories creates a grown-up living space.

Green and red furniture and accessories provide colourful accents in this living room. The bold print shade ties into the scheme, repeating its colours and cushions. The dark grey walls and white flooring creates a soft and subtle backdrop

Bold red makes a statement against fresh green walls in this living room. Faux fur cushions and a textured rug keep the look cosy, while a glass coffee table creates a feeling of space, and its similarity to the dining table links the open-plan areas together.

A neutral colour palette of dusky pinks and greys creates an informal yet sophisticated look in this living room. A modular sofa is perfect for family to sit together, and upholstery in a darker colour like grey is ideal for hiding stains. Multifunctional furniture is key. For instance, the footstools can also be used as chairs or as storage boxes for magazines.

Give a traditional living room scheme a contemporary twist with super-sized and super-bright florals on the walls. Here, drops of patterned wallpaper are combined with drops of plain to create a bespoke effect. Neutral floors maintain a traditional look, while hits of punchy colour are added for a scheme that’s modern yet timeless.

Mustard florals and dark wood furniture, and matching flooring, create a Fifties-style look in this living room. The floral print on unlined curtains is emphasised by daylight shining through, in a scheme where different floral fabrics work together due to a common colour palette

Shag Rugs

Shag Rugs were very popular in the 1960s and 1970’s and not until very recently has there has been a resurgence in their appeal. There’s nothing quite like the feel of a nice-warm-fluffy shag rug under your feet. They are so much softer than a sisal rug. They are nice and soft and have a casual “shaggy” appearance. Though braided rugs feel soft they don’t have the same soft look. Shag rugs are different than most other rugs in that their fiber loops are left intact to create their pile, and that’s why they are so soft and have such “shagginess”. This is how a hand tufted rug looks before it is sheared.

In their early years, shag rugs were mainly found in oval shapes. They virtually always consisted of solid designs and weren’t as pleasing on the eye as they are now. Modern versions of these carpet rugs come in a greater assortment of shapes, sizes and some down right urbane contemporary rugs. Modern shag area rugs are made up of much higher quality materials than they were in their infancy so they last a lot longer. The higher quality, increased durability and fun styles and colors mean they make great kids rugs.

Most shag rugs are still made up of synthetic fibers however these days you can find some interesting variations. You will find them as cotton rugs, wool rugs, silk rugs, linen rugs and even leather rugs.

One great place to use shag rugs is in bedrooms. The hard/cold surfaces in bathrooms, like tile floors, toilet, sinks and tubs, can be offset with patches of soft and warm bath rugs. Shag rugs help absorb noise which is something to keep in mind when thinking about the areas where you may want to use them.

Generally you get what you pay for in life and shag rugs are no exception. The cheaper the discount rugs the sparser the tufts that make up the pile, which means less structure and lower overall quality. But we have great quality rugs from the biggest manufacturers of shag rugs including: Shaw Rugs, Dalyn Rug, Couristan Rugs, Chandra Rugs and Momeni Rugs.

What a lot of people like about shag rugs is their ability to change the look of a room. Though some people think of them as retro looking, most are attracted by their simplicity and feel. They are much simpler than oriental rugs or persian rugs. But we highly recommend Shag rugs. Take advantage of their warmth, comfort, bold design when decorating your house.

Kids Rugs

Kids Rugs don’t have to be just for kids. Think of them as Fun Rugs for the kid in all of us. We have an ever expanding selection of kids rugs with something for everyone from newborns to tweens to teens to just plain fun.

Kids rugs are the key to livening up a child’s room. As the foundation of any rooms’ décor, kids rugs bring in color and add excitement to any childs room. Some of the newest and most popular styles in kids shag rugs are the Mary-Kate and Ashley collection from Shaw Rugs. They are manufactured with high quality nylon in a state of the art facility to ensure superb durability, and resilience even in the tough environment of a child’s room. Mary Kate and Ashley rugs are extremely distinctive contemporary rugs with an eye toward the latest trends using unique combinations of colors and patterns.

RugSale long lasting relationships with the best suppliers from around the world like: Nourison, Oriental Weavers, Dalyn rug, Momeni Rugs, Couristan Rugs, Capel Rugs, and Chandra Rugs. These carefully cultivated relationships mean our selection and price points are the best. Kids rugs need to be made from soft materials unlike sisal rugs. From the best synthetic materials to the highest quality wool rugs, you will find area rugs that fits your child’s décor perfectly at

If you are looking for unique kids rugs for a nursery, a children’s or even a teens room oriental rugs and persian rugs won’t fit the bill. A good kids rug need to be affordable also like discount rugs. We have kids carpet rugs or even braided rugs to create the an amazing room for your child. Interesting patterns and colors add a lively atmosphere to kids bedrooms and playroom. The energy they add is also a great alternative to expensive wallpapers and time consuming special paint jobs.

Most kids rugs use primary color pallets (red, blue, yellow), but with the right touches you can draw these colors through the rest of the room. If you add colors from the rug in the bedding or curtains you can give the room a cohesive quality and make the room very vibrant. This can also be done with bath rugs. This is the simplest and most inexpensive alternative to using themes and characters your child will outgrow which will mean you will have to redecorate it all over again.
