Bedford & Grove


We speak with Laura from Bedford & Grove about her New York state of mind…

Tell us a little about yourself using a Haiku.
Candles made with love
Delicious scents of New York
Hand poured in Melbourne

Tell us a little about the origins of Bedford & Grove.
It’s a very new business of mine, a few months ago I closed down my clothing store. I went to New York for a holiday and came back inspired to start a new business venture. I have always loved soy candles so I decided to teach myself how to make them at home. I started an online store and it grew from there!

Describe your creative process.
Choosing fragrances, choosing the name, designing the labels. And then the actual process of making of the soy candle.

What inspires you the most?
NEW YORK. Fashion, magazines, online blogs and interior styling.

Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers.
I have been in fashion for the last 5 years so my favourite designers would have to be Kelli WhartonMaya Clemmenson and Jesse White.

What are your ultimate dreams for Bedford & Grove?
To expand my online business and maybe one day grow big enough to have my own space instead of taking over our kitchen and bedrooms!

What will we find from Bedford & Grove at our September Bend and Snap Market?
All the usual candle fragrances plus some new scents for spring…
West Village (White Tea), Meatpacking District (Mandarin & Mimosa), Manhattan (Fig & Melon), Yankee Stadium (Lime & Sandalwood)
