Carl and Toni of Country Life Furniture are pleased to introduce Kate Garrett as their new Curtain/Design consultant.

Kate joins Country Life after having previously worked in the window furnishings industry for nine years.

Kate grew up in the Hutt Valley, graduating from Weltec with a Bachelor of Design degree before taking a break to raise two young children with husband Dwane. She then worked in the kitchen design industry for four years, before moving to the Wairarapa.

One of the aspects of her new job which Kate is particularly excited about is the wide range of interior design options she will be able to offer clients. “Not only will I be able to assist people with choosing the right window furnishings, but all aspects of creating beautiful interior spaces at home.” Kate is available to give free in-home consultations, offering advice on curtains, blinds, furniture, wallpaper, decor and colour. Country Life is the exclusive stockist of Sanderson drapery and upholstery fabrics in the Wairarapa, as well as such brands as Warwick, James Dunlop, and Mokum.

Country Life stocks quality furniture from leading companies including lounge suites, dining, outdoor and different occasional pieces, predominantly New Zealand made. One of their special assets is a re-upholstery service. “We have the widest range of fabric sampling in Masterton,” says Kate “and I am very excited to be involved in helping people decide how to breathe new life into their existing furniture and sentimental pieces. ”

Kate is bubbling with enthusiasm at the prospect of meeting you at Country Life Interiors’ to assist with your home furnishing project.
