Luxury Home Inspiration

Written by Penny Simpson

With a portfolio of award-winning design to their name, brothers  Ben and Hamish Lewis have captured the imagination of New Zealand homeowners with their exquisite selection of tailor-made luxury furniture and European design on display at their Trenzseater stores in Christchurch, Auckland and Queenstown.

The Covid-19 lockdown last year led to Trenzseater clients looking to improve different areas of their homes from media rooms, libraries and casual living spaces to home workspaces.

“This past year our clients have learned how to make the best of their different spaces making them more luxurious, relaxed and beautiful to create a better aesthetic,” says Ben. “We have seen a lot of wallpaper being used which always gives personality to a space, whether it be a feature wall or an entire room.”

He says the winter season is an excellent time to elevate living areas by introducing personality pieces.

“We are always inspired by what the new season brings and although our designs are classic there is always new product coming through. This season’s inspiration comes from colour and texture and when we think of winter it’s soft luxurious furs, vintage leathers, scented candles and ambient lighting.”

The Queenstown Trenzseater store opened three years ago and quickly established a following.

“ Our fantastic Queenstown team based in the Frankton showroom are all experienced interior designers. They help clients instore with various furniture and lighting requirements and have the flexibility to visit people’s homes or workspaces,” says Ben.

“We offer a full interior design service which has won international awards for providing expert advice from beginning to the end. Having an experienced consultant by your side throughout the process can often be comforting and it is reassuring knowing you have the very best product available to make your home extraordinary.”

New and exclusive furniture and interior ranges are Trenzseater’s hallmark. 

 “Providing an exclusive collection of products and brands is key for us as it makes for a more personal experience,” says Ben. “ All of our international brands have new collections arriving throughout this year and we also have our very own new furniture designs available this winter along with our exquisite new bedlinen collection which is a must see.”
