We created our business Sunday Made in 2018 after we were left wanting for accessible, honest-made furniture and homewares with a design focus. We combine sound craftsmanship and durable materials into a concise collection, designed to suit any space.

We design and manufacture all our own products in Auckland and enjoy creating bespoke mirrors and furniture pieces for clients. Our retail collection is also available through our online store.

Our team consists of myself, a qualified licensed building practitioner (LBP) and two apprentices and we are an all-female team.

We are able to undertake all aspects of carpentry, whether it is adjusting a door or fitting a new lock, small or large renovation or building a new home.

I have also completed studies that include environmental psychology and am passionate about the spaces we live and work in making those spaces achieve their maximum benefit for physical and mental wellbeing. As such, I am happy to consult with clients from pre-design right through to completion of their projects.

Kia ora! I am an independent contractor with a degree in industrial design and also have commercial construction experience. As a private contractor, I have worked in the film industry creating large scale sets and moving walls, built stages for festivals, worked on landscaping projects, and have painted interiors.

My work requires a lot of problem-solving, and so I specialise in odd jobs and unique creative projects that challenge my knowledge and skills.
