Now this gorgeous find is all thanks to a lovely new NZ blog called Fancy! Well worth a look everybody!!
“Union furniture offers pieces of character and strength. Designed by Paula Coulthard and Susan Haldane, each individual piece tells a story of New Zealand. Stories of the people; stories of the workplace; stories of the land and sea. Union incorporates found and handmade materials into their new design. We tailor our furniture to work with the character of your enviroment.”
On their blog they reveal every new piece with words to evoke its sense of history and nostalgia. I am a sucker for this type of thing! It is such a welcome relief after the brand spanking new square factory made furniture that we are generally offered!!
