About us

Gentle Donkey is a homewares & lifestyle store situated in Melbourne, Australia.

Since the beginning, our ambition has always been to share our knowledge and passion for Australian lifestyle and design tradition. This is something we are passionate about continuing to share with you. And just as you strive to improve your home over time, building and adding bit by bit, we at Gentle Donkey do the same.


At Gentle Donkey we know how important it is to bring your personality into your home and with that in mind we focus on beautiful but functional interiors to live with and love.


The product range has been selected to transcend fast moving trends and help you choose items that you will want to treasure forever. From first sketch to final product, we take an active role in the manufacturing process, collaborating with factory partners to ensure product quality and responsible business practices.

What's Next?

Through interactions with our growing community and collaboration with our manufacturing partners and industry experts, we are constantly seeking the next big idea. We appreciate your feedback and participation in the process and look forward to continuing the journey together.
