How to have a long-term re­la­tion­ship with your fur­ni­ture.

The 80/20 rule very much ap­plies to the fur­ni­ture mar­ket. The main­stream chain store of­fer­ing suits 80% of the pop­u­la­tion, but the re­main­ing 20% want some­thing that’s bet­ter made; some­thing with a de­sign edge that tran­scends trend.

Sta­tion Road Home Col­lec­tion in Ran­giora looks af­ter the 20%. Owned by hus­band and wife team Gavin and Jo How, it’s a one-of-a-kind store that re­tails a col­lec­tion you won’t find any­where else in New Zealand. Most of the pieces are de­signed in the USA, where a su­per-diver­sity of cul­tures sup­ports a va­ri­ety of time­less themes. “In the United States they’ve mas­tered the art of fur­ni­ture with a per­son­al­ity. You’ll see beau­ti­ful ma­te­ri­als and at­ten­tion to de­tail, but it’s not over­done. There’s a clean­ness to the de­sign that doesn’t date”, says Gavin. Sta­tion Road’s clien­tele, a mix of home own­ers and in­te­rior de­sign pro­fes­sion­als, share a com­mit­ment to buy­ing qual­ity, be­cause they know it’s a bet­ter in­vest­ment in the long run. >>
