e’ve all been to cluttered lighting shops full of the same old stuff, and wondered why we bothered. Why isn’t someone selling new and distinctive lighting products and window treatments, with a designer perspective instead of following the pack?

Firefly does just that! Hidden off the beaten track in Devonport is Firefly Light & Design; a lighting, interiors and window treatment showroom with a difference. Firefly offers an open airy space displaying a range of the finest European and New Zealand produced lighting. With a refreshingly different lighting selection, as well as familiar favourites like the work of designer David Trubridge.

Firefly also offers a selection of interior window treatments from Roller Blinds to Shutters, all custom made to your wishes, as well as an impressive array of fabrics from Auckland’s leading fabric houses, available by the metre or converted into curtains, cushions or upholstery.

The small, friendly team includes two degree-qualified designers to guide you through the whole interior package. Their expert advice is invaluable whether you’re stuck on one feature light fitting for the dining room, upholstery fabric for that old chair, or need fabrics, blinds and lighting planned for your whole house.

To keep things new Firefly also stocks a small selection of designer and artisan furniture, and a few clever gift ideas such as Tivoli Audio products. It is a selection which is constantly evolving, just to be different.
