'Passion for life and beautiful things' sums up this store rather well. A design store with good values and great taste located out in Port Chalmers. On first entering this store you enjoy it like most other stores until you uncover that everything in-store is handcrafted from around the world. Further investigation reveals that each piece is sourced personally by owners Allan & Annemieke Sutton. But what really sells this store and why it is a must to go visit is that each piece has been sourced direct from manufacturer, the craftsman that make them!
Established two years ago Annemieke & Allan have done a great job of revitalising this building. The store is filled with a wide range of interesting products. Sourced from small producers their furniture is in high demand and is always plantation based, not from the forest. Alternatively, they opt for recycled or repurposed materials.
The best part of this store that really stands out is that everything is unique. With stock arriving daily their is always something new. Open everyday 11am - 3pm on weekdays and 10am - 5pm on the weekend this store is worth the small 15min trip out to Port.
