The art of Zen life

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - DONNA-MARIE MILNE

FORMER res­i­dent James El­liot and fi­ancé Va­le­ria Ko­vach have set up a new lux­ury fur­ni­ture busi­ness Zen Liv­ing in Port Dou­glas, al­lured by the life­style and com­mu­nity spirit of the re­gion.

James and Va­le­ria are ex­cited to set­tle down in the area and are cur­rently plan­ning their wed­ding to be held in Port Dou­glas in Jan­uary.

James has a back­ground in real es­tate and Va­le­ria has 20 years ac­quired ex­pe­ri­ence in the ship­ping in­dus­try.

Based at Craiglie, Zen Liv­ing of­fers high end fur­ni­ture at af­ford­able prices.

Re­sort fitouts will be the main fo­cus of the busi­ness, but pub­lic is wel­come to the ware­house/show­room by ap­point­ment.

“We have over 2000 lines, with lines evolv- ing ev­ery month,” James said.

“Re­sorts can also cus­tom de­sign fur­ni­ture us­ing an ar­ray of high qual­ity ma­te­ri­als and fab­rics and we can even color match to any shade.

“Qual­ity is our fo­cus and we have part­nered with some of the world’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers, who sup­ply global lead­ing brands.

“We aim to per­son­alise pack- ages and take the time to lis­ten to the de­sires and needs of cus­tomers.”

Zen liv­ing fur­ther pledges to be­come a com­mu­ni­ty­fo­cused com­pany.

“We’re re­ally keen to give back to the town,” Va­le­ria said.

“We’ve made a com­mit­ment to the up­com­ing com­mu­nity gar­den and are look­ing to be­come fur­ther in­volved in the com­mu­nity.”
