This flower has come to represent the ANZACS  as it was the first flower to grow in the battle fields of northern France after the First World War finished.

Aesop’s Stores
The Seatery’s reputation for quality commercial upholstery led to Aesop’s stores commissioning them to supply upholstery in their stores in Myer, Melbourne and Myer, Birkenhead and stores in Brisbane, Perth, Canberra and Sydney. Aesop store designs are genuinely inventive and beautifully crafted, with a meticulously considered design.
A sophisticated, luxuriant look has been fashioned by The Seatery with upholstered wall panels at point of sale for the Aesop store in Myer Melbourne. Upholstered in synthetic felt, in dark grey tones the panels are fixed to the wall with shelves and drawers, which are finished in the same fabric. The two panels measure1800mm x 600mm and 2200mm x 600mm. Wall panels for stores in Perth, Canberra and Sydney were upholstered in 6mm felt, elevated to create a looped effect in a blue/grey colour, reminiscent of denim. Each of these wall panels is 600mm wide in 3m drops.
Walls, cupboards and shelving unit drawer fronts were also upholstered for the Aesop store in Birkenhead in a wool fabric supplied by Warwick, in the design Augustine and colour Armour.
