Shut The Front Door

When Sarah Parker was sourcing industrial-style lockers for her brand General Eclectic, she had a bright idea. “Instead of their typical grey, how great would they be in a bright colour?” she thought. Now these are available in a range of sunny hues from turquoise to mint green at her new store Shut The Front Door. “It was simply a matter of taking industrial furniture and moving it along towards having a cleaner finish,” she says.

This combination of an edgy design with bright colour to create the perfect product is typical of what you’ll find at Shut The Front Door, based in Auckland’s Takapuna.

The flamboyant name of the store is easy to remember, inspired by the idea of “coming home and closing the door behind you and focusing on your home and family inside,” says Sarah. “We supply everything you need to make that home awesome.”
