On the home straight

We’re on the home straight and summer holidays are within reach.

ON THE HOME STRAIGHT
I'm most definitely a summer person.  When the days are getting longer and warmer, the first Pohutukawa flowers appear and the sea is an acceptable temperature to take my first plunge, I know that we're on the home straight and summer holidays are within reach.
It's very easy to feel fatigued at this time of year (especially this year with all of the disruption and uncertainty we've had to endure) but the early summer sun is providing us with an energising boost for the last few weeks.
We have been fortunate to be able to feed off the buzz of firstly getting back into production in September (I had to look that up as I've largely lost track of time in recent months) and then being able to re-open our showroom week-before-last to welcome you back in.
Thanks to all of you who have paid us a visit.  It's a great boost for us and an additional inspiration as we work through the final few weeks of the year.
A massive round of applause for our local craftspeople too who have embraced the challenge of five weeks lost production, rolled their sleeves up and put us on track to deliver everyone's orders before we close for summer holidays.
RETURN TO NORMAL LEAD-TIMES
We look forward to returning to our normal local production leadtimes in the new year.  Our current orders are out to mid to late February delivery.  We expect to get back to a 6-8 week turnaround of orders early in 2022.
NEW LIGHTING STOCK
We've recently landed a fresh shipment of lighting from VeniceM and Edizioni Design.  We have a number of their lamps and pendant lights in stock if you're needing lighting solutions quickly.  Just let us know and we can send you a list of what we have in stock.
FLOOR STOCK
If you can't wait to have furniture made-to-order for your clients, our floor stock can be purchased for any projects that you're wanting to complete in a shorter timeframe.  This includes designs from our own range and our imported collections.
SUMMER HOLIDAYS
We'll be closing at midday on Thursday 23rd of December and will re-open on Wednesday the 12th of January.
