Beautiful brand new Auckland store Douglas + Bec

A selection of Douglas + Bec's gorgeous things.... LOVE THE steel side tables by NZ designer Nathan Goldsworthy (top left), Workroom wooden angle table lamp (top right), Belle of the Ball lamps also by Rebecca / Workroom, and the DS Stool also by Rebecca / Workroom.

I got an email from Kiwi designer Rebecca Snelling recently, sharing these beautiful pics of her brand new Auckland store.  Douglas + Bec is stocked with a carefully curated selection of pieces by both local and international designers - from lighting and furniture, to ceramics, soft furnishings and jewellery.   The shop sells Rebecca's own beautiful pieces (under the name Workroom) alongside work by many other brilliant independent designers, including talented NZ and Australian names such as Nathan Goldsworthy, Genevieve Packer, Speaker Box,  Francis Rose Is and I think I spy some Auntie Cookie in there too...!?

Even though it's in Auckland, I thought this special little place was too gorgeous not to mention.  Plus it kind of looks a bit Melbourne-ish to me.
