making dreams come true

 After meeting and falling in love on a ski holiday in Fernie, Canada, in 2002, we moved to Wanaka for the following winter ski season...and never left. We fell in love with the mountains, the town and the people. Rich started up his own furniture making business,  which gave him the flexibility to pursue his mountain and ski guiding career. We moved from our little house in town to the beautiful rural community of Hawea Flat. Our new surroundings inspired us to celebrate the beauty and nature and craft bespoke tables and furniture from stunning macrocarpa timber. We absolutely love our tables and hope that you do too.
