The Ivy House
Owner Annie Loveridge's home was covered in ivy and locally referred to as 'The Ivy House' when she launched her textiles business in 2010 following a career in banking.
The Ivy House opened its doors in Herne Bay in 2013 offering Australia's Armadillo & Co rugs to NZ for the first time.
We constantly strive to offer the best and beautifully made items for your home - items suited to our NZ lifestyle.
We work with clients across NZ, offering a personal service via phone and email, sending samples out and working together. It's about good service, good manners, and ensuring we have happy clients.
It can be overwhelming when faced with so many options. Our inhouse design consultants work closely with our clients to ensure the perfect product is selected, providing the best option for your lifestyle, existing furnishings and how you want your home to look and feel.
Armadillo & Co
The Ivy House is proudly the NZ stockist of the full range of Armadillo & Co hand woven rugs.
Armadillo & Co has a large range of standard sized rugs - many are in stock and readily available. We can also custom size these rugs as well as offering our Bespoke Collections where you can design your own rug or hall runner.
All Armadillo & Co items are hand woven under Fair Trade conditions, giving back to the weavers' communities through The Anganwadi Project.
CocoFlip and HEM
Furniture and Lighting Collections by Coco Flip are hand made in Melbourne and the Pocket Chair by HEM is hand crafted in oak and leather in Italy.
Made by Hand
We carefully select only those items that resonate with us. Items made by hand. With a story.
Handmade items aren't a pristine product; they have the signature of the artisan's hands to provide a unique piece with integrity.
