Oooohhh mannnnnnn! Fictional Objects has been a tried and true favourite of Studio Home for quite a few years now and the anticipation of their new collections never gets any easier to handle! But, just in time for the summery rotation of bed linen….we can all welcome ‘Second Skin’, a big juicy range of duvets, sheets and pillow cases in colour ways that quite frankly; never do and never will disappoint! Designer Emma Rutherford is an expert in that epic “sweet and sour” mixing of colour and as a personal fan

I’m really excited to share this brilliant new local brand as I think it will music to the ears of MANY of you with sensitive skin…..but still bound by your duty to CLEAN! Real World is the result of some real world problems for a real world Mum! Hawkes Bay based Nicola Mossman had reached the end of her tether when it came to her dry, sensitive hands suffering from the daily dunking in hot soapy water when cooking/cleaning for a family of six. On speaking to friends and comparing the deep cracks

Hunting for George continue on their path to be your one-stop-shop for quality Australian design, art and homeware. They really are the champion of the independent designer and have slotted themselves in there too! Their new collection; ‘Clifton’ is inspired by summers spent in the sleepy Tasmanian, seaside town of the same name, as remembered by co-founders/sisters; Lucy Glade Wright and Jo Harris.  “I wanted this collection to represent everything we love about Summer holidays. Our fondest memories are from our holiday’s spent at Clifton Beach. Extremely understated and surrounded by

Explore their refined incense and oil burners (some you might not immediately recognise!), bath brews and treatments, candle packs, essential oils and even a leather pilates roller! Welcome to the future of rewarding your senses.  All imagery supplied by and used with permission of Page Thirty Three ………………….

Once again the challenge to communicate divine, hand blended fragrance via the internet is WON by George + Edi and their collaborators Greta Kenyon and Lu Diamond Flowers. I only recently introduced you to the offering of fragranced room sprays, candles and reed diffusers from Wanaka based George + Edi … but it’s safe to say they most definitely have me on their band wagon now! CEDRUS is their newly released,  limited edition fragrance for the festive season which can be found in the form of a candle and room spray, both

Welcome to Dogdogdog all your canine lovers out there! Experienced New Zealand designers Emma Kaniuk and Tana Mitchell had already joined to form a new brand/design studio Akin when a further idea was born! Their shared love of dogs plus business must have been fairly apparent between them, as it wasn’t long before their concept grew momentum, drawing in friends (and friends Mums!) as the makers and suppliers of their beautifully crafted bowls, toys, leads and more. As Emma says: “A bunch of friends and trusted companies who love making stuff for

Wild Wagon Co. is the rather romantic name picked to represent the rich, modern folk art of designer and roving creative; Cristina Viscu. A quick scan of her About page gives a nod to her adventuring spirit which has led her from Moldova to Nashville, New York to Auckland. While she has worked across a handful of creative industries it wasn’t until Cristina arrived in Auckland with her husband Eugene a few years ago that the Wild Wagon Co ranges of stationary and prints took form. I’ve been an admirer of her

Joska + Sons is leading from the front when it comes to solid, innovative, NZ made homeware and lighting. And this is all happening from the seaside port of Lyttelton in Canterbury! Over the years, Joska Easterbrook has allowed his passion for design to organically morph into a passion for making. He is no one hit wonder. Instead, carefully working on small collections which are released only when they a ready, not in response to seasons or retailing cycles. This then leads us to his new products! New to the

Young NZ college and studio mates; Loren Marks and Sarah Carson stepped straight out of their fine arts education into a creative but demanding world of business. On their side was a shared, unwavering point of view and aesthetic, very much focusing on organic lines, tones and inspiration from the softer, shadier corners of nature. Their style has allowed their brand;  Penney and Bennett to grow a loyal following of admirers and like minded stockists…with me included. The rust of that bedlinen combined with the water colour of their silk cushions

Curio Noir is NZ’s answer to fragrance royalty. Tested and critiqued by some of the worlds best noses, the luxury local brand has just expanded their delicious world to include a new collection of parfum AND a flagship store in Auckland. The highly concentrated scent can be found in little 5 ml pocket bottles or housed in one off, hand blown glass bottles by Monmouth Glass Studio.  The store is designed for the senses as well – a product of work completed with exciting New Zealand designer Rufus Night.  As
