For Brent and his team, inspiration comes in many forms: whether it’s the architecture of a building, a piece of music, a certain indefinable colour or even the taste of a particular food.


Inspiration for beauty, originality and design can be found in almost anything. Although over the years I have found certain reliable sources that constantly provide ideas. The lines and shapes of Art Deco and Art Nouveau architecture are always an inspiration; while ideas for colour can be drawn from New Zealand's natural beauty. Our rich cultural heritage merges the old world with the new; Sotheby's with the South Pacific. These ideas become entwined and provide inspiration for refined, unique and stunning designs.
