New Zealand designer Tim Webber has an all-new collection, launched at this year’s Den Fair. The Otto chair up there is my fave – I love how sumptuous it looks in that mustard velvet, yet the wire base lends it a light airy feel, don’t you think? As with all of Tim’s pieces, there are multiple options for materiality – so you choose your own adventure.

Good with Wood


After struggling to find kids furniture that was New Zealand-made, sustainable and playful, mum of three Hannah Fox decided to create her own. Her brand, HideSeek, makes creative, contemporary kids furniture – with a range that includes the Hideout Bed because what kid wouldn’t love their own bedroom hut (p.s: love the little letterbox), Hideout Stool and Hideout Bench (handy to help little shorties to reach things), a great little play/dine table, and the cutest cloud shelf.

If we’re talking about creative furniture for your kids, I can’t leave out fur-kids. Fur-kids are kids too! This is the new Milly Bed by our friends at NDC – a flat-pack pet bed in two sizes that comes with/without a door, and with other custom options like black detailing.

Luke Mills is a New Zealand designer living in Melbourne. (Yes, Australia, you can have pavlova, but New Zealand was the birthplace of Luke Mills.)

Under his brand, Lumil, Luke has a growing range of furniture and lighting with a focus on natural materials (timber, terracotta, ceramics) with clean simple lines and bold forms.

Deftly balancing craft with minimalism – my fave dichotomy.

W I N – Tim Webber Apex Shelf


Feeling lucky this week? You so are. NZ designer Tim Webber has just launched three new colours in his popular Apex Shelf, and he’s letting us give one away!

The new colours are Mist Green (a muted sage), Burnt Red (hello) and Slate Grey (a soft/cloud colour), joining the OG fam of black, and fresh white.

Clean (simple design, no visible fixings or mounts), contemporary and all completely New Zealand made, the Tim Webber Apex Shelf would be perfect above a bed or couch as a ledge for framed art and fave pieces, or in your kitchen or bathroom for storage and display. Or actually anywhere. At all.

Competition now closed – congrats to Helly Parsons x
