My style is keeping it simple and sleek with Nordic or mid-century elements depending on the space. It’s important to find out what my clients' needs are first, and then I like to balance it out with my own style. I love seeing a project come together when we have both collaborated and made their home truly unique.

What BROUGHT YOU TO BOCONCEPT?

What really appealed to me was BoConcept’s Danish design heritage and the brand’s global footprint with over 300 stores worldwide. I was familiar with the brand in London before I moved back to NZ and started working at the Auckland store. I have been fortunate enough to visit Denmark, Hong Kong and Sydney for work seminars. I really enjoy meeting my colleagues from around the world, sharing ideas and working with a great team here in NZ (who took out the franchisee of the year award in 2019)

What is your background in general?

I grew up in Wellington and studied Industrial Design at Massey University before working at Kirkcaldie and Stains as a window display artist, from there I always had a love for spatial design and worked as a visual merchandiser when I first moved to London for Size? and some of London's top retail stores, Liberty, Selfridges and The Conran Shop. From there I learnt a lot about good design in fashion and interiors, plus understanding customers’ needs. I lived in London for 12 years, loving the vibrant mix of design, music, food and culture. I’ve always enjoyed having several creative projects on the go; I used to DJ and had my own picture framing studio in East London for a number of years, from there my interest in furniture evolved, so I started working at the Conran shop and worked alongside some amazing interior designers.

How long have you worked for BoConcept?

I have worked at BoConcept for eight years. I first started in the Auckland showroom as a Design Consultant, and then managed our pop-up showroom in Britomart for nearly 2 years. I’m originally from Wellington and when my wife and I had our first child we decided to move back home to Wellington which worked out perfectly, with a position available. I’m now the manager of the Wellington showroom and oversee our national marketing.


What inspires you outside of work? 

I always enjoy being outside and over the last few years I have been landscaping around my home in my spare time. It ticks all of the boxes for me, whether I need to unwind or release some energy by digging out an old tree and creating something new. I find it really rewarding and I’ve read that caring for your garden can be a great form of mindfulness meditation; I never thought I would become a collector of exotic palms!

Could you share a recent project?

A cool project I did recently was an old character home in Seatoun Heights. The client had an amazing art collection and views of the ocean. We used those elements as inspiration for colour and texture, The Adelaide dining chairs in Golden Napoli was a bold move that transformed the client's space instantly.

What are your favourite BoConcept pieces?

At the moment we are in the process of renovating our kitchen and dining area, so I have my eye on some new dining furniture. The Torino table in black laminate is designed for commercial use, so it is also perfect for a growing family, with the London bench seat and Aarhus dining chairs. We have this combination in the Wellington showroom and I just want to take it all home! We’ve also had a Carmo corner sofa in dark grey lux felt for over 5 years, which is well loved by all the family (and durable, which is needed with 2 small children in the house).
