Pip's Journey

Most people arrive in a new country and need considerable time to make the right connections and contacts to start an export business. Not Pip – her contagious enthusiasm and passion for what she does within 3 months of living in Hong Kong she was bidding farewell her first 20ft container of Chinese provincial antiques.

So began a highly successful and rewarding career of exporting Chinese Antiques to America, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand plus many more containers a year made their way into Hong Kong to support her ever growing expat clientele.

China was just the beginning for Pip. Frequent trips to Thailand, Malaysia, SIngapore, Vietnam, Burma and Indonesia with her husband Greg opened her eyes to the stunning world of work available throughout Asia. A view shared by her ever expanding list of clients.

Discovering new talent in some of the most exotic and beautiful locations allowed Pip to foster relationships she maintains today. Each trip unfolded a new and exciting product, exquisite linen and art from Vietnam, woven furniture and stoneware from Thailand, stunning contemporary art from Shanghai and Beijing, beautiful antiques from Zhuhai and artwork from emerging artists in Burma that has now reached a world stage.

Selling art evolved as many of Pip’s clients became more interested in collecting international art as rich and diverse as their origins. This became Pip’s love, the sourcing of interesting artists and their work. Purchasing, supporting and nurturing their endeavors, exhibiting them to continue their craft.

Interior Journeys

Fast forward to today, Pip continues to connect with designers and suppliers in Asia with a focus on furniture and accessories that she feels would enhance the design landscape in the South Pacific whilst giving a respectful nod to the exceptional design of Asian Furniture.

Clients are able to touch and feel each product within three design centres throughout New Zealand giving designers and clients the option to also select their own colour ways. Designers and clients will be able to access detailed colour charts from which they can order small samples of the colours to view for themselves firsthand. Pip will continue to build the range, selecting colours that result in harmony and balance.

Through friendship and trust, nurtured over 20 years of journeys, Pip now draws upon amazing resources and introduces clients on a personal level to a wonderful world of possibilities.
