Couchelo, founded by Si-Si Dai, William Fan and Fei Yao, is focusing on unique vintage and designer furniture. Lodie, founded by Melbourne-based entrepreneurs Gabrielle Kelly and Simon Doukas focuses more on the homewares and gift market, including fashion and jewellery.
Melbourne-based entrepreneurs Gabrielle Kelly and Simon Doukas have developed a mobile application Lodie for emerging designers to showcase and sell their products in a virtual pop-up shop format. The app is currently in its beta phase, and set to launch officially in the upcoming months.
