Trenzseater - Leading With Distinction

DATE 9th Jul 2020



TRENZSEATER have been leading the interior design industry through innovation, creativity and excellence. Meet Ben Lewis, co-founder and general manager.


The ambience of a residence – and making a home feel special – is something that furniture designer and interiors expert Ben Lewis of TRENZSEATER is acutely aware of.

He’s in the business of creating spaces that look good yet remain timeless and functional through the considered curation of furniture and accessories. He launched TRENZSEATER in Queenstown in 2018 and the retail store and showroom, located on Hawthorne Drive in Frankton, stocks an exquisite collection of New Zealand-made furniture as well as an exclusive range of imported brands in lighting, soft furnishings and accessories.

Ben says it’s the company’s distinct style that resonates with the Kiwi customer and the brand’s overall success in the competitive world of interior design.

“TRENZSEATER has always had a distinctive style that’s instantly recognisable whether it’s through our award-winning interior design service or through our showrooms,” he says. “It is this style that we have carefully curated to show the crème de la crème of furniture we make in NZ along with all our international brands in lighting, rugs and hardware. I think one of the key attributes that makes us so distinctive is that we have a large portfolio of products that don’t just cover one aspect of the home but many, and that we can also put it all together through our interior design service as a one-stop-shop.”

The company has showrooms in Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown and prides itself on showing customers what can be achieved in NZ homes, but on an international scale. TRENZSEATER’s bespoke interior design service works hand-in-hand with its retail stores to provide a full-service experience, whether a client is redecorating a small living area to coordinating the interior of an expansive, architecturally designed home.

Ben’s furniture range is crafted from materials of the highest quality and each piece is checked scrupulously throughout the production process, from the selection of raw materials to the monitoring of craftmanship until the completion of the product. Ben and the team are also dedicated to environmental sustainability, with initiatives in place to ensure an eco-friendly production facility and a careful selection process to ensure that materials and components are sustainable and have properties that will be beneficial to the long-term wellbeing of the environment.

This commitment to sustainability is just one of the ways that TRENZSEATER leads the interior design industry with distinction.

"I think to be an example of distinction is a great honour as it is something that needs to be achieved and is something that takes a long time to be established,” Ben says. “To lead the industry is our passion we strive for in everything we do, from supplying the best products through to the work we carry out in our interior design service."
