From the business’s start up in the early 1970’s our projects’ experience has been continuously evolving.
One of the first projects was for a design consultant who had been commissioned to fit out a small local café. Our brief was to source and supply cups, saucers, plates, platters, table cutlery and glassware. We worked with the design consultant to prepare a schedule of requirements, obtain samples and prepare a quote to supply for the interior designer to present to the owner for his approval. After a small amount of fine-tuning the quote was approved. We supplied and charged the goods direct to the café. Thirty-three years on we are still doing business with that same design consultancy and many others now use our services to reduce time and cost.
Luxury residences & holiday homes, embassies and trade legations:
Our experience in such situations is vast and luxury residences are by far the largest proportion of our business. Probably due to the quality merchandise we carry in stock. Client confidentiality prevents us from divulging specifics, but we do have a portfolio of photographs showing some of the special settings we have supplied.
A perusal of our brands list shows that we are capable of supplying your entire dinning, bar and kitchen accessories. In addition to this we have a comprehensive selection of bathroom, bed linen and table linen.
Super yachts and luxury motor vessels:
Our involvement in the fitout of these vessels qualifies us as a major participant in the marine industry. We have had direct involvement with more than 50 vessels in the 40-metre plus category not to mention the smaller but no less luxurious vessels. The selection of photographs shows a small selection of the high number of quality vessels we have had the privilege of working with.

We have a considerable involvement in fitting out boardrooms and corporate entertaining areas. This has led in turn to the sourcing and supplying of corporate gifts for occasions such as retirements, long service and incentive presentations where ‘special gifts are required.
We have supplied product to many restaurants, cafés and hotels throughout the length and breadth of the country but it is fair to say that our major success has been at the top end of the market (luxury boutique hotels, lodges and international 4-5 star chains). When The Langham Hotel required Silver cutlery for their Partingtons Restaurant they asked us to quote and supply Christofle. The original fitout of the dining room for The Spire Hotel in Queenstown was a Studio Project and in between all that we have given a successful procurement service to all manner of restaurants, cafes and hospitality facilities.
Each of these projects has differing aspects. In many instances we work with the design consultant. However, be it the design consultant, the project manager, the owner, the owner’s representative, or the executive secretary we see our objective as supplying quality, well designed merchandise in a timely and cost effective manner.
We regard Projects business as the highest priority and all directors of our company are in tune with each project at every stage from quote to conclusion. We can assure you that our attention to detail and service is second to none.
