The first dedicated halo and artwood showroom opens in Ponsonby

JI Home is an interior design lifestyle concept store predominately showcasing the brands Halo and Artwood.

The Halo Group, founded by Major Philip Oulton, began life as Halo Antiques in 1976. Major Oulton loved fine furniture and had an eye for attractive antique pieces, which he bought from local people and then sold on within the UK and throughout the world.

His love of beautiful furnishings has been passed onto his sons. Today, Timothy Oulton and his dedicated team now run the company and continue the family tradition of supplying high-quality, beautiful furniture inspired by the company’s British heritage.

Halo uses the finest materials to develop its distinctive designs in
-house, allowing the team to create quality furniture that looks good and has longevity. All the furniture is hand-crafted, making each piece unique.

The use of traditional techniques and tools adds to the overall quality and durability of the furniture. Halo has a reputation for designing and manufacturing distinctive, innovative furniture. Influenced by iconic designs of the past and present, the Halo collection is a testimony to timeless elegance.

Artwood was founded in Sweden in 1969; a family business that still dares to go its own way. After long journeys to the East they took home exotic materials that are today the basis for Artwood's design. One could say they have taken inspiration from the American east coast mixed with a sense of the pulse of the city and rural life or a house by the sea.

They call it Artwoodstyle - elements which together form a natural sense of quality in your home. Artwood's basic materials are rattan, wood and textiles. As nature has its nuances, Artwood’s furniture has a soul and every piece of furniture tells its own story.

A home reflects one's personality it should be an inspiration and a place to relax, enjoy and socialise. Each style speaks for itself, and product ranges can be mixed and matched to suit your personal style. Come into JI Home and be inspired.
