Lo & Co is thrilled to reveal the opening of its very first offshore showroom as a proud exhibitor at the innovative design precinct – Home Ideas Auckland in New Zealand!
Situated in the heart of Parnell at 165 the Strand, Home Ideas Auckland is an all-in-one solution for those seeking design and renovation inspiration, showcasing high-quality products from over 100 suppliers to the design and build industry. Lo & Co feels very much at home in its exquisitely finished showroom designed by Material Creative and nestled amongst some of Australia and New Zealand’s leading names in manufacture and supply – Laminex, Astra Walker and Caesarstone to name just a few.
“We really enjoyed having an bird’s eye view of the creative process and seeing the elements of the space come to life.” says Arielle “The showroom is a combination of textures and soft colour palettes to inject a sense of allure and inspiration – everything from reeded wall panelling, troweled plaster, travertine, leather, concrete and black steel has been used to make an impact and showcase our handles in the best possible light. The piece de resistance would have to be the Jaime Hayon Formakami paper lanterns that adorn the space. We love them!” It comes as no surprise that the space has been announced as a finalist in the 2021 Interior Design Awards.
In explaining the decision to expand into new markets Arielle states, “Increased consumer interest from New Zealand really spurred the idea to open an exhibition space which would allow trade buyers and the general public to view our collection in its entirety. We are so pleased to be able to offer a “hands on” experience to our New Zealand friends whilst continuing to provide design advice to those who require it direct from our Adelaide studio”.
New Zealanders – we invite you into our new showroom to discover the craftsmanship and quality behind our brand and explore the wide range of textures, colours and sizes for yourself! Ordering can be done via iPad in the showroom (don’t forget to use the code thankyounz for free shipping) or by contacting us directly in the studio.
