Where dangerously desirable homeware meets emerging art, Precinct 35 is offering you a dream duo.
August 18, 2016
Precinct 35 emulates Wellington in all it's culturally rich glory. Sitting flirtatiously between coffee shops and boutiques on Ghuznee street, it's the kind of store you fall into. Owner, Prak, prides himself in offering customers of all ages an amicable place to buy homeware and indulge in art. There's a kind of dual experience in the store unlike any other, a sweet segway between copper spoons and fine photography. The shop works with small brands, keeping the homeware close to, well, home. It's a salt of the earth store, in touch with good quality products and conscious consumers. The product range is extensive and dependant; your next favourite sweater and the book your coffee table never knew it was missing. In the event of dragging yourself from the homeware, the gallery waits out back.
It's a platform for emerging artists but also a spot for art lovers of all degrees. The gallery shows different artists on a fortnightly basis, each bringing personality and a wicked opening night. The small space is a place for everyone to enjoy the depths of art while wallowing in the shallows of watercolour and photography.
Precinct is quiet and intimate, perfect for your Sunday afternoon or lunch time outlet. The concept is there for you to feel comfortable, a place that brings homebodies and artists together, where you can leave with a new rug, piece of art or just a new perspective. There it is, Wellingtonians, right under your noses; the best of both worlds.
