The Spyder

The wonderful Spyder chair has just arrived in our showroom! We have been anxiously awaiting this beauty so we could test her out for ourselves, and this chair is worth the wait! SO comfortable with nice proportions making for a very ergonomic feel.

Hildy at Kovacs is the brilliant mind behind this chair design and many other beautiful pieces all made right here in NZ, it’s great to support our local designers and locally made product.

We wanted a fun pop of colour in our studio so we went for this Misia fabric in Bleu Paon (Misia make some absolutely divine textiles) and it’s great to be able to show off something a little special in our Interior Design Studio.

Now that we have this piece in our Queenstown based studio you’re welcome to come and have a little look, we have hundreds of fabrics to choose from to customise this chair (or any chair mind) to suit your personal style, or go for something a little different!

Arte new release

Introducing the new Artisan collection and Faction, the stunning addition we love. This collection is an ode to high-quality, traditional craftsmanship. The wallcovering is made of pure, natural materials, from minerals and grasses to tropical plants. Experienced artisans’ pleat, weave and dye with boundless passion and patience. They turn these materials by hand into beautiful, unique wallcoverings.

Faction is made of real mica flakes*. The sheets with mica flakes are hand-dyed, after which large, irregular shapes are punched through them. These are carefully inlaid into a repetitive pattern. The pattern is a modern interpretation of the colourful, classic terrazzo floors.

This wall covering is truly something special; unique, tactile with depth of colour which is justly more than a simple wall covering, it’s a lovingly crafted piece of art.

*Mica is an umbrella term for a group of minerals.
