About Us

Hello and welcome to House of Design New Zealand. My name is Nadja; I am the owner and beyond excited to bring gorgeous Metsovaara fabrics to New Zealand and Australia.

I love spending time with my family, walking my gorgeous puppy, soaking up sunshine, learning to play the piano, books, travel, and finding out about amazing cultures, languages, people, and beauty from all over the world.


I feel very fortunate to call New Zealand my home and love its people, stunning nature, rich culture, and unique wonders everywhere.

With a passion for design and nature, beauty and diversity, I've been searching to combine all of these and found it in designs and textiles with a heritage like no other.


When you deal with House of Design New Zealand, you will receive extraordinary service through me personally, and all products are true marvels just like the New Zealand surroundings I live in.


Do you have any questions or would like to find out more? I'd love to hear from you and will take the time to answer every request and tell you more about what House of Design can offer to you, your business, and your lifestyle. I'm looking forward to hearing from you and introducing Nordic design at its best and most beautiful.
