Award-winning furniture and interior design company Trenzseater is continuing to develop its high-profile stores in Queenstown, Christchurch and Auckland which in turn is stamping a mark on homes across the country.
“Our recent focus has very much been on scaling up the interior design consultancy working with clients on their existing homes, large architectural builds and commercial projects,” says Trenzseater general manager Ben Lewis.
“We opened almost 20 years ago and one of the key developments from a very early stage was the introduction of this service which has gained an international reputation after our award-winning entry in the International Design & Architecture Awards held last year.”
“We love interior design and it is our passion. My advice is to start as early as possible on a project to achieve a great interior design outcome. It’s important when choosing a designer to look over their previous designs to ensure quality of workmanship for your own project.”
As a purveyor of international design brands Trenzseater is a distributor of exclusive European furniture ranges and designer hardware across New Zealand.
“The majority of our collections are classic and timeless and to achieve this we are always looking well in advance for new designs. We are conscious of the need to keep introducing fresh and exclusive pieces to continue to inspire our clients.”
Ben’s outstanding attention to detail has resulted in all Trenzseater stores offering a highly curated interior and furniture experience.
“They are a real showcase of the unique furnishing collections we import. We have dedicated EICHHOLTZ spaces in each showroom alongside Jonathan Browning lighting displays featuring their speciality finishes and materials. Many of our international brands understand the aesthetic we are trying to create here and work collectively with us on these projects.”
Keeping a consistent brand story across all three stores ensures clients can discover new items whether they are staying at their permanent home or holiday house.
Ben says the Trenzseater online platform is becoming an increasingly handy tool.
“We are more digitally orientated than we were six months ago and our website is an exceptional vehicle that allows clients to visit and shortlist products before coming instore to view. This saves both time and money. We are currently creating a virtual store experience online that is really innovative.”
Trenzseater liaises with many clients who have dedicated offices in their homes.
General manager Ben Lewis says with an increasing number of people choosing to work from home there is high demand for good design solutions.
“We believe having an inspiring work environment at home is key to making it feel genuinely like your own space to be productive in. We have introduced a lot of beautiful desks, desk lamps and office chairs to Trenzseater and often suggest to clients they should further develop their office area with wallpapers and occasional armchairs to create a more complete space.”
