*UPDATED 24/3/20*

For a business that is inspired by all the wonders of the world, yet so closely linked to our local community, we're acutely aware how the COVID-19 virus is affecting each and every one of us.

While advice on how to best curb its effects is changing hourly, we are taking all necessary steps to do our part for our community, our staff, and our customers.


Our Northcote, City and Fitzroy stores will close their doors until further notice, but we're open online and dispatching orders daily. Staff in our warehouse are taking all necessary hygienic measures and staff in our design studio are working remotely (in our comfiest Travellers, no doubt).

Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook for some special online events in the coming days and weeks!


For many in our community, this roller coaster ride won't be easy.  More than ever it's important to support the businesses that you love and those that are local to you. From everyone at Obus, we want to thank you for your continued support during this tricky time.

Don’t forget to check in on your friends, neighbours, colleagues and young ones. Enjoy the benefits this time to be present and quiet can bring. And above all, keep calm and we'll all carry on!

Love and warm wishes from Kylie + Team Obus
