Retail Spotlight: Welcoming Capricho to Takapuna
Capricho, an Auckland based importer and retailer of luxury European Linens have opened their first permanent store here in Takapuna.
The store, located at 106 Hurstmere Road, is a warmly styled space with lots of natural light, blonde wood and a cool grey & white colour scheme - the perfect backdrop for showcasing their products.
“We wanted to keep the aesthetic of the store simple and clean to really allow the brands within to shine” says Capricho co-founder, Fiona Black.
The store is the next step for Fiona and her partner Javier after a successful European Linen Pop-Up store in Silverdale Village. As they did at their Pop-Up, Capricho have all their beautiful linens open and on display for customers to see and touch. “The feel of bed and bath linen against the skin is such a personal thing. It's very important to our customers that they're able to feel the quality of our products before they buy”.
With the opening of the new store Capricho have significantly expanded their product range, and in addition to their luxury Linens, offer a complementary edit of high-quality Homewares, Furniture, Lighting and Lifestyle products from around the world.
“We believe that good design should be beautiful, functional and have longevity. So, as we have done with our linens, with our new ranges we've chosen brands who also take this approach.”
Fiona and Javier have sourced a number of brands that are unique to Capricho, as well as others that have not previously been available on the North Shore:
Brands such as Home Concept who work primarily with Egyptian cotton to produce supremely comfortable luxury linens and accessories, and BOVI who specialise in home textiles with perfect finishes, rich embroidery and elegant and timeless designs; both are international textile brands located in Capricho's favoured textile-producing region of Northern Portugal.
WOUD, a Danish design studio who collaborate with designers from around the world to produce unique furniture and homeware designs with purpose, function and beauty.
Gidon Bing Ceramics, an Auckland-based artist who creates deceptively simple and elegant handmade ceramics in subtle hues for everyday use.
Laing Home, classic and beautifully finished Sleepwear designed in New Zealand and made in fine cotton, cashmere and silk.
Fiona and Javier are excited about this next phase for Capricho and look forward to bringing their fine goods and exceptional customer service to the denizens of Takapuna and beyond.
