We love design and we love style, so what better way to spread the love than to open our own Furniture & Homeware Store here in Upper Hutt, Wellington.
Hi, we’re Jono and Damo, your two interior design gurus. When you need design advice, some home décor ideas, a new Sofa or a new house plant, you can’t go past Created - Furniture & Homeware.
Local Upper Hutt guys through and through, we’ve got 30+ years of retail management experience between us, with the passion and drive to make it to 135! But how did we get started in this amazing industry?
Jono has always loved design and studied it from high school right up until he achieved a Diploma in Digital Design. He then took this knowledge and worked as a Visual Merchandiser and Retail Manager. Damo was the bright spark in the relationship and he entered the world of lighting and customer service.
Then as we were beginning to renovate our 1950’s house, Jono decided to make the art for it and style the house to suit ourselves. Turns out our friends and family also loved Jono’s creative style too, so we set up our own home décor business. We began making more and more fab art and posted photos on our Facebook page. Businesses started contacting us to stock our products and we even had our concrete candles, planters and foiled prints displayed on The Block 2015 Villa Wars.
Things were happening and it was time to pull out the big guns. We approached a realtor and started looking for an actual physical store. We’d decided that it was time to take our style and finesse to new levels and display its glory for everyone to see. But we didn’t just want our products; we wanted to offer a place for other NZ artists like ourselves to display their work, as well as the trendiest goods and furniture from NZ & abroad.
Now, years on, we are not only still going strong, we are now Upper Hutt's largest independent Furniture Retailer, Designing and Importing pieces from all over the Globe! Lux Velvet sofas from Malaysia, Dining Chairs from Vietnam, Dining Tables from various different countries as well as Homeware sourced from NZ and Australia. We have a strong focus on Fair trade and Wages with pieces that are still affordable and top quality!
Created - Furniture & Homeware is changing every day. Time doesn’t stand still and neither do our products. We are always on the look out to bring our customers more accessories and design inspiration for their homes and of course our own too!
We’d love to help you style your home, so pop in or flick us an email. Just think of us as your home décor besties.
