Just some shots from behind the scenes at todays photoshoot at our home in Point Chevalier with Lani and leeann - will keep you posted as to which magazine it runs in. Carlos again was the star of the show.
We have just finished this bespoke side cabinet make from solid sustainability farmed oak. I wanted the timber to be that main feature so the design is very clean with tuned legs and handles and of course being Scandinavian influenced.
I also took the opportunity to photograph our wooden 'angle' table lamp in a pepper shade.
Here is a coffee table (could be used as a side table) we have just finished. I have always been in love with this coffee table that my mother has at her place that was my great aunt Helen's and I have wanted to do my own interpretation of it. The table is of the mid century rendering and I really like the style - green and turquoise tiles with Rimu surround . We have selected 100% recycled oak and used plain white tiles for our response and I am really pleased with the outcome. I will post some more photos when there is better light.
Things have been rather hectic since my return from our wee excursion to the south and I haven't had a chance to write about our stockist in QT. Vesta Design Store is situated right on the lake, I could think of worse locations!
Unfortunately my timing was not impecable arriving a week after the high lake level the store was taking the opportunity for a well deserved break. So I got some snaps from the outside and through the window. The store is in the most delightful little cottage and Kim the stores owner has set up the rooms like actual rooms - just gorgeous!
I am hoping to make a return trip as soon as we can.
The dates are set. I said I like dead-lines well shesh this one is getting close. As I mentioned earlier two of my fellow graduates and friends, Yolunda Hickman and Michelle Beattie, and I are having a exhibition (of art).
It opens on the 17th of June at 5.3o pm with a wee celebration and we have some beautiful boutique vinos for the evening being supplied by a friend of mine Craig Burke who represents - Makaraka Estate and Amor Bendall. Aren't we spoilt - thank you very much.
The la Gonda Arcade on Karangahape Road is the venue, it is a great and interesting space. Keep an eye on the developments and progress on exhibitions blog: the habit of continuously running.
