Event Details





A saw bench and a buzzer from her late father-in-law’s workshop inspired Napier designer Leanne Culy’s latest creations.

She’s now a finalist in the Best Design Awards – Australasia’s largest design awards programme.

Despite rising to the top of 1182 entries, Culy says she won’t be able to attend the awards, but is ecstatic by the nomination all the same.

“I was shocked when I found out. We just entered the collection in the competition because we loved it. We weren’t sure how it was going to go down. But we’re really pleased,” she says.

Culy has run her business, Homebase Collections, out of a design studio on Hastings St in Napier since January 2017.
