Metroscope has also become the distributor of a fabulous new range of bright, beautifully designed coasters, placemats, trivets, soap rests, luggage tags and key rings. We spied this gorgeous collection in one of Marrakech’s upmarket homewares stores and did some investigation. The collection is designed by a Lebanese designer who is inspired by the  Mediterranean and Morocco. We are now the proud Australian and New Zealand distributors of the Images d’Orient collection. Well designed, high quality, washable, heat resistant, vibrant colours and designs, and beautifully packaged.moucharrabieh - soap rest - sop-770011

We’ve also revamped our website significantly. After repeated requests for information and prices from interstate and even overseas, we now have an on-line shop. This will make it easier for our interstate customers, but the picture gallery and information is significantly enhanced for all.  Mosaic tables, chairs and lanterns cannot be purchased on-line yet due to the individual freighting and packaging requirements, but we do send them to country Victoria or interstate regularly.  

Our first two on-line customers gave the following unsolicited feedback:

“Just wanted to let you know that our two wonderful new wall sconces arrived from you today and we are thrilled. They are beautiful, and when they go up on our wall beside our front door they are going to look fabulous.  … Thank you for the great, prompt service. Five stars from us!! *****”

“I just want to say how awesome you all are at Metroscope! You wouldnt believe the drama I have experienced trying to get a Moroccan teapot from suppliers in Sydney whilst on a recent visit there! Customer service is obviously not a priority with the stores I tried!  It was such a refreshing experience to receive friendly, prompt and efficient service from yourself and the other person I spoke with yesterday. Thank you so much, it is very much appreciated! I will definitely be purchasing more items from Metroscope!”
