distinctive – inspiring – beautiful

In the beautiful seaside town of Penguin you will find cocoon. A place where you can soak up the magic of the setting and experience the ever changing furniture, art, lighting, home-wares and rugs we have in our gorgeous store. Our totally unique buying patterns make our store stand out from the mainstream, you will just want to slowly wander through each room, appreciating each new delight and trying to keep your wish list under control!
Our furniture includes selected antiques, vintage, mid-century, Scandinavian, contemporary, industrial and our own brand “Actually Really”.
We have also opened “out of the cocoon” two doors up in one of the most beautiful buildings Penguin lays claim to. We don’t like to use the word gallery, but we have amazing wall art lining the white painted brick walls of this impressive space. We have a mix of original Tasmanian artists work for sale as well as prints you don’t normally see. We have continued with our philosophy of giving our customers the same choices usually reserved for stores in bigger cities. There is also a selection of ‘architectural’furniture- really beautifully designed and formed pieces which make strong and stunning statements.
We love to inspire, to help people make their own rules when it comes to how the turn their houses into homes. We re-use, re-purpose and re-think everything, and hopefully you will leave happier, and excited to make your home your very individual cocoon.
