Lorraine Allen - Director

Established in 1992, Lorraine brought something remarkable to the industry. "After visiting Mexico I saw the beauty in quality, hand crafted interiors and with the gap in the New Zealand market place for the European/Colonial style at the time, I foresaw that it would marry well with the New Zealand life style."The craftsmanship in the product will never cease to amaze me!"

Since then at L.A. Imports, We live for Handmade.

We are an interior design concept company specializing in the Authentic European Style. Showcasing products suitable for Beach Houses, Lifestyle Blocks, Lodges, Wineries as well as existing and new homes. Our products have an extensive amount of handwork and craftmanship which gives texture and softness. Our ranges are always evolving but always consist of Lighting, Lanterns and Candelabras, bespoke solid wood European doors, Outdoor furniture, Interior and Exterior Pots, Leather Furniture, Mirrors and a large variety of Decor Accessories including Ceramics, Artwork, Lamps and Cowhides.
