Excited to see a suite of new design - and the opening of a new studio - from NZ's Homebase Collections...
Leanne Culy, designer, outside the new showroom.
Don't you just want to go visit? Yeah you do - and you can, at 5 Balquhidder Road, Napier. The showroom is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 till 4... or by appointment. Weep not, dear not-in-Napier child, there's also an online store.
This shy little guy isn't new, but they've popped him on a cushion.
Sideboard - you rikey?
Sammy here is a nostalgic Napier/NZ icon, and its only right that someone made him a star again. Way more awesome than the Four Square man.
Sammy on cushions, and Homebase Collections' new woodgrain fabric in use as curtains.
At the heart of Homebase Collections are their textiles.
New pinhole lightshades; and in situ.
The swan fabric (nod to Crown Lynn) isn't new but I just really like this photo.
New fabrics: triangular roses...
... and triangular parrots.
So much good to look at...
Love that Brian Culy Camelias print on the left wall there...
Another shot inside the new Homebase Collections studio.
(PS: Circular windows beat everything.)
