Urban Design and Architecture
Christchurch, New Zealand
We are able to provide a range of services from selecting a single piece of furniture to a whole interior design process.
Loughran Design was established through love for Interior Design. I believe in design concepts and how they can manifest from the simplest of ideas into amazing pieces to love and treasure for years to come. The concepts are developed by nurturing an idea though to a truly unique and personal design for your home or business.
We are here to help with a one off statement piece by bespoke design service or creating a collection with this concept in mind. Our bespoke furniture is made from native Macrocarpa timber slabs and a combination or other locally sourced materials such as sea glass, metal and resin. Or it could be to choose from one of unique treasures personally selected on travels to exotic and beautiful places overseas. Or alternatively we can help with a full Interior Design service. The choice is yours and we would love to hear from you to discuss your ideas and next project.
I have been dreaming about Interior Design ever since I was a child and making treehouse and igloos rather than snowmen and I am still obsessed with it today. My name is Joanne Hay and I am originally from Scotland and my family is from Scotland and Ireland hence the name Loughran; my family name. I am also passionate about heritage and love to incorporate heritage into design concepts.
I love to travel and marvel at the Architecture, Interior Design and homewares (and the food and wine) of that culture. I have traveled extensively in Europe, India and Indonesia and bring home treasures from these beautiful places for my home. I have recently traveled to Bali to source treasures for you to place in your home as a pride of place. I have personally chosen pieces that have been handcrafted by local artisans with amazing wood carving skills true to their heritage.
I have studied and qualified in Interior Design and Building Surveying and the combination of creative skills and technical applications helps when developing designs and building furniture.
