Byebyelove was started by Heike and Jeanine. These two creative women made it their business to rescue ‘sleeping beauties’ waiting in garages, storage units or forgotten corners of the house to be kissed awake! Those items came from an era where furniture were made with loving care, precision and solid bones. They deserve a second chance to shine again. They often survived a century with hardly any wear and can do it again with a little bit of care and knowhow!
Surely these two individuals can’t spin straw into gold, but they can turn just about anything into something useful and beautiful and not just stopping at furniture! Out of this set of skills, New Zealand’s first Upcycling Warehouse was born! Here you will find the unusual, the unique, the clever, the wacky, the beautiful, the redesigned, the repurposed, the reloved and only one of a kind pieces. The Byebyelove Upcycling Warehouse will host different events and open pop up shops throughout the year where they will display a vast variety of upcycled goods.
Repair and redesign
In their workshop, in Torbay, they can tackle the bigger or more complicated furniture and with a showroom in Longbay nearby it is easy for the customer to either view or pick up existing pieces, or deliver commission pieces for a revamp.
Byebyelove has established good contacts throughout the country, which makes it possible to source any special requests in a relatively short timespan.
They are happy to guide you through the design process for the indecisive or follow exact specifications. Finding you just a single piece or a complete house lot, these two ladies can do magic.
They love their goods that much that they are sad to see them go… hence their name choice ‘Byebyelove’!
Byebyelove also offers delivery or pick up in the greater Auckland areas by arrangement. Often a truckload will also go to other areas, so if you are not in a hurry there is now a chance that you can purchase Byebyelove’s furniture nationwide.
