Kim Lane

Kim Lane completed a degree in Clothing Design and Textile Science from the University of Otago. She worked initially as a Visual Merchandiser and Window Dresser for Country Road Clothing in New Zealand before transferring to Sydney, then eventually managed all the store teams throughout New South Wales.

While working in the UK, Kim was drawn to the Designers Guild and Terence Conran stores, among others, and discovered a passion for interiors, colour and fabric. This inspired her to undertake study in Interior Design after returning to NZ, and in 2005 she set up her own business. Kim mainly works with residential clients, providing concept planning and specifying colours and finishes.

Living near the beach, she finds the relaxed, coastal aesthetic is favoured by many of her clients - this fits well with Kim’s love of natural fibres, muted colours and simple modern shapes.

Bronwyn James

Bronwyn James was destined to pursue a career in the design industry. She grew up with creative parents who worked in design-related businesses and was always surrounded by colour samples, wallpaper designs and luxurious fabrics used for theatre costumes.

Bronwyn has been involved in a diverse range of building projects over many years where her intuitive flair and passion for colour, fabrics and design has been evident. She completed an interior design course to complement her practical skills and knowledge, and has had extensive experience working as an interior designer and project manager on the upgrading of residential properties.

These projects have included redesigning and revamping small brick and tile units, modernising dated apartments and extensively renovating original villas and bungalows to make them suitable for contemporary living.

Sophie Seeger

Sophie Seeger runs Seeger By Design, a creative company for interior design, decorating, property styling, colour consulting and art sourcing.

Sophie was immersed in art and design from a very young age, having “caught the bug” from her grandmother, a sculptor, and both art-loving parents.

She studied the history of art, colour and design, interior design and journalism. Her career to date has successfully married her passion for art, design and writing.

While running a contemporary art and design gallery, Sophie developed a commission base for her paintings and also discovered her joy for commercial design development, identifying sustainable opportunities and incomes for artists and designers.

This led to two Indigenous rug and textile ranges with licensed deals for clients, including DFAT, Qantas and public libraries. Sophie has a licensing deal for her own abstract art and has works in private collections throughout Australia, South Africa, the US, UK, Denmark and Singapore.

Sophie has worked as an art and design mentor and a guest curator, and she continues to work on residential and boutique retail interior design projects.

She is a contributor for Houzz and a member of the DIA.
