Ico Traders has been a well kept Canterbury secret for far too long….something which is ALL about to change!
Designer/founder/curator; Miranda Osborne has just launched a packed online store to make her collection of wire furniture, homeware and lighting very browsable – this may cause some discomfort to your credit card!
The Christchurch earthquake acted as a catalyst for Miranda to make some changes to her life and work situation with a focus on less travelling and more time with her family. Her background in buying and passion for design led to the launch of Ico Traders as a supplier of those typically hard to find industrial and vintage lighting options and decorative pressed tin wall panels. Once these product lines were in healthy stock, it was a natural progression for Miranda to begin designing her own line. Inspired by retro wire furniture of old and the “holes” in her own home furnishings, she has created a collection of wire, steel and wooden furniture and accessories.
The result of Miranda’s patience, trial and error topped by an unrelenting demand for quality, is the steady rise of a popular, local business. Working with both local and offshore makers, Ico Traders is rapidly filling that gap for casual but hardy furniture to slide seamlessly into our eclectic, New Zealand homes.
