Get to know - Frobisher
Calling all design lovers. Situated in Frobisher Interiors is their well-designed Espressory you will love to visit. Sip your coffee while being surrounded by all things interior design.
After more than 20 years, Frobisher remains a name synonymous with bespoke interiors. Think Frobisher for that original furniture, homeware, and accessories that individualise a home.
We were lucky enough to speak with Jacinta about all things Interior Design, their Espressory and more...
Hi Jacinta, thanks for taking the time to chat we me. Firstly, can you please tell us about Frobisher and how it all started?
Frobisher started off as an interior design space in a Villa in Merivale, we then took the leap and moved to the retail space here in Christchurch and Auckland, where we have been able to achieve and grow Frobisher the way we have always envisioned and planned. We are now in our eighth year on Manchester Street, and have our own espressory, warehouse and logistics team, design studio as well as a projects and accounts team.
How would you describe Frobisher’s interior design style?
The beauty of having a diverse team of interior specialists is we don't have a “style” we are creatives who can form spaces that are functional and meet the needs of our clients lifestyle, but also push boundaries and encourage design elements that they may have not considered to enhance their way of living.
Working with clients to create their dream interiors must be exciting. What is your favourite part of the client design process?
As cliche as it sounds, we love every part of the design process, however seeing our projects come together in the final stages where you and your clients vision comes to life, and you are pulling together the final touches is always a great feeling!
We’re thrilled to have our products used in your Espressory situated in Frobisher. Can you tell us what made you decide to use sustainable packaging?
Our espressory was designed to be a pop up location for if you need something on the go, or a location where you can explore our studio and sit back and relax. We needed serveware that was easy, and sustainable - decent packaging had endless options as well as being completely compostable.
