Following a hugely successful installation with Faye Toogood, The Hub General Store will transform The Front Room into a treasure trove of books in partnership with publishing house Phaidon, to create The Phaidon Reading Room at The Hub General Store.

Celebrating the beauty of books, The Phaidon Reading Room will be filled to the brim with Phaidon titles covering the areas of design, art, photography, architecture and cookery, as well as plenty of children’s favourites.  

Immerse yourself in a book or perch on the staircase and peruse something lighter. The afternoon sun streaming through the front windows and soft tunes playing in the background make The Phaidon Reading Room at The Hub General Store the perfect reading spot!

Jacqueline Foti-Lowe, founder and director of Hub Furniture, has long had a desire to find a home for the everyday objects she has admired and collected throughout her travels.  This collection of treasured discoveries has come together at The Hub General Store. You’ll find handmade goods and everyday tools and objects for the home such as brushes, soaps, stationery, sponges, towels, bags, jewellery and much more.  The quaint red brick facade in a primarily residential street in Collingwood hides three distinct spaces - a front room with an original fireplace, a soaring two storey space with a grand staircase leading to nowhere and a rear space with a pitched roof which cascades down to a typical laneway.  The Hub General Store is the result of a dream 15 years in the making. The door is always open, the fire crackling and music playing. Hub look forward to inviting you into their second Melbourne home.
