The Earnest Workshop

  • 18 February 2020

Furniture is one of my ‘things’. A thoughtfully hand crafted piece of furniture is something pretty special, particularly these days as we seem to be surrounded by poorly made furniture with either a short functional life span and or something that ticks the On Trend box … for today.

Referred by a client I was delighted to discover The Earnest Workshop who craft their magic right here in Mount Maunganui. In 2012 Dan Gillingham gathered together a group of makers and began to create furniture to cherish.

The Peel Coat Rack sums it up really, beautiful and functional, take a look at this behind the scenes  video to appreciate hand crafting at its best …. it’s very therapeutic

cool stools

  • 12 July 2013

Searching for bar stools I stumbled across these super cool stools, with a little more digging I discovered they are not only New Zealand made but made right here in Tauranga!

I love the simplicity of them, the seat and collar detail. American Ash available both as a low table stool and a high bar stool….yeah!!

They are designed and made by Y.S Collective.
Definitely Beautiful and Functional.
