Cantabrians rejoice — ECC opens an impeccable new home design showroom in the centre of Christchurch

With a long history of partnerships in Christchurch, ECC has opened the doors to a new Showroom at the shopping destination that is Victoria Street in the city’s centre. Following the opening of the brand’s Architectural Lighting Showroom in 2019, just around the corner on the same street, this proudly refined and meticulously considered store space was the natural evolution for ECC.

Bringing the world’s leading lighting and furniture brands exclusively to New Zealand, the new curated space is designed for exploring. Family-owned and operated since 1909, ECC is currently run by third-generation Mike Thorburn with sons Richard and Andrew. Their current range includes contemporary and timeless classics many design aficionados will know well.

Made in Italy, the stand-out brand Minotti blends tradition and technique with clean lines, comfort and impeccable attention to detail. For a feel-good factor, the Netherland’s Linteloo has the right balance of structure and softness, with a hefty dose of Dutch design, for furniture that is a joy to live with. Meanwhile, another Italian brand, Magis, incorporates cutting edge technology, and creativity, into its smart designs. Other furniture labels include Giorgetti, Henge, Glas Italia and Piet Boon.

For lighting, look to those that spark new design ideas. The iconic Flos provides legacy lamps that are a testament to timeless design with technical excellence. Vancouver and Berlin-based Bocci brings sculptural glass lighting, while Melbourne based Christopher Boots is a conduit for the material and metaphysical exploration of quartz crystal light fixtures. Other leading lights include Astro, Marset, Tom Dixon and Gervasoni.

With such highly regarded brands in its new showroom stable, ECC has every element of a design-oriented home covered, from floor to ceiling.
