Tell us about your background and what got you started in Furniture Design?
Hayden’s background is in carpentry, while mine is in brand management. A friend came to us, with her rapidly approaching wedding, wanting sleek, modern furniture for both her ceremony and reception as she could not find anything in the Bay of Plenty that met her needs or price range. She asked Hayden to custom build trestles and bench seats for her, and the idea stemmed from that. It all happened within the space of about 2 weeks.
