A LITTLE INTRODUCTION TO THE BRANDS WE REPRESENT

 

THE RUG COMPANY

Luxury handmade rugs designed by world-renowned fashion designers or by our in-house design studio. We make luxury modern rugs using traditional methods.

Contemporary, courageous and enticing – The Rug Company designs are at the pinnacle of authentic luxury. Taking cues from the world of couture, each rug in our core collection is woven with artisanal precision, made by hand, by our honoured craftspeople in Nepal. To ensure that no project is limited, we have expanded our technical capabilities to offer handtufted, handknotted, woven jacquard and other production tools. This development advances our offering while maintaining the highest standard of quality.

We are dedicated to creating luxury design, that is authentically crafted. Through using honestly sourced raw materials, we can ensure that each design will last for generations.

Over the years, The Rug Company has collaborated with some of the world’s leading creatives, from esteemed fashion houses to profound artists – each designer bestows something unique. At the heart of the brand is our in-house studio, who pioneer each design with unparalleled expertise. 

 

SOHO HOME

Available in NZ for the first time, Soho Home will infuse any interior with tactile luxury.

Soho Home is a modern interiors brand designed for relaxed, sociable living. With more than 25 years of design heritage, the range was created to mirror the look and feel of our Soho Houses around the world.

The brand was born when their guests began asking if they could buy their favourite pieces from around the Houses. They launched with our Barwell crystal glassware back in 2016, and since then have evolved from a small collection of staples into a diverse interiors brand that includes furniture, tableware, accessories, lighting, home fragrance, and textiles.

The Soho House team has opened more than 30 Houses across the globe to date, with outposts in Austin, Mumbai and Berlin, among many others. As they've grown, they've remained true to their core principles: to create a relaxed home away from home for their members with a sense of familiarity.

Each collection is designed collaboratively with the interiors of their upcoming and current Houses, looking to the surrounding areas, creative communities and history of each location for inspiration. That's why you'll find the Manette bed in Kettner's and the Juliana chandelier in DUMBO House.
