Aesthetic is what The Workroom does best, so it’s not surprising walking in is a pleasure in itself. Tiled floors, soft neutral colours, throws and bright bursts of expertly arranged flowers mean it’s easy to trust these professionals when it comes to designing your own interiors. This former laundromat has long farewelled its days of washing clothes, and is now home to some of the most beautiful homewares, linen, prints and flowers in town.
The all-women team work alongside Anna, the interior designer/owner, keeping the place running smoothly, and are more than happy to help the multitude of customers that come in requesting recovering of furniture, help with curtains or advice on what to put in their holiday home. Carefully selected furniture and homewares from all around the globe (India, Mexico, Bali and France to name a few) spill out onto the street front, while popular with customers who are keen to support local, are the wooden bowls and salt and pepper shakers hand turned by Anna’s neighbour.
The place to go for interior design, floristry and sourcing of furniture, both out of towners and locals who are looking to furnish their Wānaka dream home have an impeccable team in Workroom.
