In central Newmarket, in the space that Metrix once occupied, a new design collective has set up shop - with a variety of offerings from bathroomware to furniture and soft furnishings. Tucked away upstairs, Josh Heath looks after Vivente - an interiors accents company. He explained to us that "Vivente was created specifically for interior designers, hospitality and trade professionals who want to bring new life to important spaces." Their collection is rather vast, with interior accents including cushions, floor rugs, throws and more. From real to faux fur, there are pieces that will satisfy both true fur lovers and animal advocates within the collection. If you haven't stopped by Evoque yet, we suggest you do - they won't be the new kids on the block for much longer, and the overall collection displayed over two levels will resonate with most.
Visit Vivente at Evoque, 23 Davis Crescent, Newmarket, Auckland.
