Leopold Hall welcomes you into a delightful world of natural living with a European, eco feel. The store which is named after Elizabeth’s Grandfather and Amanda’s Great Grandfather opened its doors in November 2014 after a complete makeover and fit out of what was the old Macpac site in Morrow St Newmarket. The store is light and bright with subtle and earthy tones.
The essence of Leopold hall is a focus on timeless and beautifully made pieces for the home which can be passed down through generations. This works in with the family’s passion for travel and collecting, sourcing one off antiques from around the world so they can have a new home here at the store.
Elizabeth & Amanda work together to design a large proportion of what you see at the store, working with natural, eco-friendly materials such as wool, jute, cotton, linen & recycled timbers wherever possible. They also have a huge appreciation for the imperfect perfection of handmade products and stock a wide range of handmade glass and ceramic items along with beautiful brassware and furniture pieces. For them, one of the joys of having a store is to be able to support local New Zealand artisans, as such, Leopold Hall has some beautiful pieces made by hand in New Zealand right from the milling of the trees to the forging of the steel which is really special.
Leopold Hall really is a one stop shop for beautiful homewares and gifts. The girls stock everything from Furniture, lighting and home décor to that perfect gift for the hard-to-by-for. They often find the men who come into their store love it just as much as the women! With new stock unpacked almost daily there is no surface left bare, be prepared for a sensory delight as you wander through.
If there is something you just cannot find be sure you talk one of the lovely staff at Leopold Hall, it is amazing what they can source for you! They will also be launching their online store next month so you can have the Leopold Hall experience 24/7!
