The Sonic: Orange’s ultra hip interiors and fashion store
Located in the regional NSW city of Orange, inside a Masonic hall dating back to 1864, The Sonic is a gorgeous interiors concept store, the likes of which you’d hardly expect to find in a country town. Combining a cafe with two existing businesses under the one roof, the large, lofty white space is something of a retail nirvana.
“My husband and I purchased the old Masonic Hall and renovated it into a fresh new retail space. It is the total shop of my dreams! I’ve had my stores in several shops over the years – iglou is now 10 years old, and I’ve had Jumbled for almost five years – but this is the space I’ve always dreamed of!” says owner Pip Brett.
After completing a Bachelor of Design (fashion and textiles) at the University of Sydney, Pip swiftly opened her first retail store. “I had watched my mum run a successful fashion business for the previous 20 years, so it just seemed like a natural progression. I launched iglou over 10 years ago and focused on bringing the best fashion brands out to the country. Then five years ago, Jumbled happened – it’s an eclectic mix of all things wonderful for your home and it’s pretty much everything that I love and want myself, all conveniently located under the one roof. I only sell things that I love and so far that strategy is working beautifully!”
