Here are some E's to end the week on - Enjoy!


Iconic Auckland Design Store Eon, started its life in 1999. It was created to house and expose the talent and creativity displayed by New Zealand designers.It's founder, Angela Roper (a talented designer herself), has committed herself and her business to the NZ design industry.

Eon's growth has seen it move twice - from it's original store in Kingsland, to Freemans Bay in 2002, and then most recently to it's new 650m2 space in Old Sofrana House in the Britomart Precinct

Eon has an online store, (thank goodness) which effortlessly brings it's collection to the world. Housing New Zealand's largest collection of locally designed furniture, homewares and design pieces, there is something for every part of your home - From outdoor furniture like the Stuzzi to the beautiful Maraetai Grey dinnerware.

NZ design is definitely something to celebrate - and Eon gives us the opportunity to grasp it with both hands!

Here are some goodies from Eon's online store:

Visit Eon at Old Sofrana House, 16 Customs Street East, Britomart. Auckland

or shop online anytime (they ship just about anything to just about anywhere!)


We can't go past the E's without mentioning Eeboo.

Eeboo has been one of our staple brands over in the Apple of My Eye Collection. The complete range is a stroke of genius - with a winning combination of colour and vitality, a splash of style and a good dose of superb illustration. Each piece is the perfect addition to a child's room.

Here are my favourite picks from the range:

Esther Diamond

When you are (like I am), a sucker for gorgeous linen (and the odd bunny or two) - you can't go past Esther Diamond.

Based in the Hawkes Bay, Sandi Reefman produces the fabulous Linen range 'Esther Diamond'. Sandi's collection reflects the qualities of her Grandmother, after whom the range is named -

"Esther was very self-sufficient and retained a staunchness and sense of humour to help her survive. These qualities that made Esther the woman that she was are reflected in today in Esther Diamond products."

Sandi also collaborates with some fantastic NZ artists to produce a range of unforgettable and iconic products...

I am only going to give you a taste of what is available because I want you to go and have a look!
