Exciting developments are happening in Hastings’ inner city, including The Tribune, a heritage revival of what was once office buildings and is now a precinct home to beautiful stores, services and eateries.

Homewares boutique and café superstar Kindred Road is one of the tenants here, and the visual story of this space instantly captures your attention. The high ceilings, exposed beams and polished concrete floor transport you to another world and allow you to enjoy the product journey in front of you.

The old-world charm of this building is contrasted by the modernity of the homewares and furniture for sale, creating that perfect yin and yang. At Kindred Road, they hold three principles close to heart when sourcing what they sell; sustainability, supporting local and unique offerings. It is clear to see these principles in action throughout the store, particularly when it comes to stocking local brands. Makers from the Hawkes Bay region are celebrated here, from skincare brand Corbin Road to fun cocktail creations by Tippl. 

Whether you are looking for a gift or looking to indulge in a ‘treat yourself’ moment, you are spoiled for choice with handcrafted ceramics and glassware, soft furnishings, beauty products, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces and an entire baby section.   

If you need to take a breather from browsing, you don’t have to go far, as the in-house café serves up some of the best food and coffee in town. The café’s terrazzo tables, rounded blush velvet chairs and rattan-backed bench seats carry on the effortlessly cool aesthetic vibes of the store. Housemade lemonades, award-winning barista coffee (using locally-roasted beans) and a cabinet of treats will have you salivating! Relax inside to continue soaking up the well-merchandised store, or head out to the courtyard where it’s just the right people-watching spot with all the comings and goings around the Tribune.
