We're all different. We know what we like and what we don't like. It's what makes us unique.
It's also what can make renovating a home, or buying new furniture so fun.
Dad wants one of those as-seen-on-TV recliner chairs, the kids want something that's going to stand out – and Mum wants luxury and style. Together they want great quality and value-for-money furniture.
This could mean shopping at four different stores just to furnish the lounge! It can be a hard day's work searching the city to find something that suits everybody's style.
But Furniture Hub at 12 Owens Place makes it possible. Take a right after Harvey Norman into Furniture Lane, where the new retail development, Furniture Hub, brings eight large home and living furniture retailers to the same address.
That's comfort, design, affordability and New Zealand-made furniture all in one place.
With everything for the bedroom, lounge to flooring – you can almost furnish the entire home shopping at one destination.
Key tenants include Hunter Furniture, La-Z-Boy, Furniture Zone, Besp-oak Furniture, Forest Furniture, PK Furniture and Carpet Court.
And there's one store left to rent. Word on the street is that spot's currently in negotiation with a large national retailer. Watch this space!
