IconByDesign Mother's Day Guide

Our mums are always on the go – juggling daily chores with their jobs, managing a myriad of activities and appointments, looking after everyone and everything. Always ready to help. Always resourceful. Always resilient. 


This Mother's Day, we want to acknowledge a few of our wonderful Icon By Design “supermums” by turning the spotlight on them. Let’s find out how they get a well-deserved break and enjoy some ‘me-time’.



“My Olivia Armchair is my absolute favourite product from Icon By Design because it's not only incredibly comfortable, but it's also become a beloved spot for both my children and our furry friends to snuggle up and relax. There's something special about the way it manages to be spacious yet compact at the same time. This allows me to curl up with a good book and have some much-needed "me time”.  


I can't help but smile whenever I see my kids and pets in the Olivia Armchair; It's become a cherished family tradition to snuggle up together in it during movie nights or lazy Sunday afternoons. As someone who values both style and comfort, I appreciate how the Olivia Armchair manages to seamlessly blend form and function with its modern design and plush cushions. 


The Olivia Armchair is more than just a piece of furniture to me – it's a cosy sanctuary that brings me joy and helps me unwind after a long day. I can't imagine my home without it!”

"Nothing beats furniture made of real wood. We’ve made countless precious memories around our Icon By Design pieces. I have the Otto Dining Table, a set of Nestor Dining Chairs and a Svend Sideboard, all made from solid oak.  Our dining area is a hub of activity – it's where we gather as a family, share meals, and create unforgettable moments. From heartfelt conversations to pure joy, every inch of this table has witnessed it all. So grateful for the warmth and love it brings to our home.

The Svend Sideboard has amazing storage for everything from paperwork to special occasion crockery. I usually style it with fresh flowers, photos and curios from our travels, but when we’re entertaining, it gives me additional space for food platters and drinks. Cheers to that!”

“My Magnus Dining Table is the most used and best loved piece of furniture in my home. It’s part and parcel of our daily lives, taking us from brekkie to dinner. It’s been my saviour during those from work-from-home days and it’s where the kids do their homework. I dress it up with seasonal flowers and my favourite scented candles when friends come over for pizza night.

As for the Astrid Dining Chairs that pair perfectly with the table, I have sat for hours together on unending Zoom calls on them in total comfort! In fact, my dog has decided that one of the chairs belongs to her and refuses to budge!”
