Here at esdesign we have the privilege of being a Wellington stockist of the Homebase range of fabrics, designed by Napier artist Leanne Culy. You should definitely check out the Homebase website: http://www.homebasecollections.co.nz/
Below is a patchwork of all the available fabrics in the range. These fabrics come in heavier weight hemp (in the stormy blue and chocolate colours) or a linen (with the creamy white background). All of these fabrics are available for order and purchase from esdesign.
These fabrics can be used to great effect in all sorts of fabulous applications, including drapery, cushions, lampshades, upholstery, and anything else you can dream, all of which can be organised here by us at esdesign.
As well as selling the fabric, we always have finished items in store which make use of these beautiful fabrics, including this chair upholstered in the nature/nurture on hemp. So pop in and check it out.

- Wellington Woman Magazine, Autumn 2010
If this is your first glimpse of our fantastic, and rather lovely team, I'll take this opportunity to introduce us. As pictured left to right; Leanne Harvey, Alex MacAvoy, Sarah Watson, Eleanor Steel & Sean Dunne.
'in the little dot on the map that is Marion Street, is a little shop with a big personality that can tell you a thing or two about the old and the new'
'"We have the ethos that interior design should be for everybody... At this shop people come in and instantly feel comfortable and I think it's that sense of familiarity."' -Eleanor Steel
'restored chairs, lamps and furniture from a bygone era that have been given a new lease on life with a multiplicity of fabrics and a swish of varnish, lure you in to press your nose up a little more against the window.'Wellington Woman magazine is a free magazine and is available all over the city, including esdesign.

We recently had some clients bring this stunning (and completely run-down) Art Deco arm chair to us, it was a beautiful shape, but totally un-usable, so we restored it to its former glory, and now it's a symphony of orange style!

No, esdesign has not opened a branch in Shanghai but Eleanor has just returned from a fabulous holiday break with her husband, John. As the Paris of the east Shanghai is an eclectic mix of gothic architecture much like Manhattan, NYNY and the ultra modern. With fantastic food, history, culture and people the few days spent there were memorable. She also found some great ribbon which will be in store soon - watch this space and we will give you a preview. Zai jian for now.
