The Design Depot was founded by Raylene Marsh in 2011, with a vision to be “an edgy and inspirational design store”. Drawing from her knowledge of running an award-winning home staging company, Raylene created a store that not only stocks furniture, homewares, lighting and bed linen – but inspires homeowners to dream.
After the initial success of the Hamilton store, a Mount Maunganui showroom soon followed in 2015, with a focus on furnishing for the relaxed beach lifestyle.
Following Raylene’s passing in 2016, daughters Larisa and Kylie have carried on the family tradition, managing both stores and staying true to the original ‘more than a just retail store’ philosophy. They attribute the continued success of The Design Depot to the wonderful team that are so very passionate about what they do.
Specialising in design consultations, local and global product sourcing and bringing inspiration to every home, The Design Depot will help guide you to the right products that aesthetically look great but also are functional, practical, and fit your lifestyle.
