Marcelle Candy settled in New Zealand with her Kiwi husband in 2011 and started Designers Candy. After working within the Interiors industry since the mid 1990's in various parts of Australia, England, France and the USA she was asked by some of her international suppliers to launch their brands in New Zealand on the news that she was relocating there.  Now in its 7th year of business her team support the Oceanic regions interiors industry sourcing, designing and supplying exceptional products to the most discerning clients.  

Living in New Zealand means that many of the luxury or designer global homewares and accessories brands are imported and only available through exclusive high-end retail stores or designers.  Working within the design industry over the last 20 years in various countries we have established industry relationships and will take the inconvenience out of sourcing those hard to find pieces.  

We understand that sometimes you just want to purchase a great piece for you room without involving a designer or architect or the hassle of dealing with a shop assistant, finding parking or an off-shore website that leaves you having to deal with customs headaches. We recognise that your time is precious so shopping in the comfort of your own home where you have the best view of your environment and sense of what it is that you are looking for is the easiest most relaxing way for you to shop. We have curated a constantly evolving collection for design savvy home owners from the most current sort after independent designer brands that are handcrafted artisan pieces and not ubiquitous.  If you can't find what you are looking for here today but know that it's a piece from one of our suppliers please contact us and we will endeavour to supply it for you.  We also work with the leading designers in New Zealand and are more than happy to put you in touch as they have access to our full collection.
