assion and experience are the key ingredients to success, and both are something the Hubbers team has in spades. Whatever your interior design needs may be, this trusted and established family business has it covered, and what’s more, they’ll do it with flair and enthusiasm. Hubbers Flooring and Soft Furnishings has been part of the Nelson community for many years. Owner Taryn Beattie took over the business from her parents in 2015, having grown up in and around the industry. “My grandfather had Beattie’s Fabrics years ago in Nelson, then worked at Hubbers Christchurch in his semiretirement,” she explains. “My father created Hubbers Nelson 24 years ago after laying carpet for years and I have grown up knowing how important customer satisfaction is, and how important a great end result is for our clients.” Taryn’s philosophy for the business is to give her clients the service she would expect herself. “My father has always instilled in me that nothing less than what I would be happy with in my own home is acceptable,” she says. “Our focus is to pass on our enthusiasm for home renovations and new builds, and to make the process

Harlequin, Unique and Luxaflex in soft furnishings – and are more than happy to provide free in-home interior design consultations. The Hubbers Richmond showroom also showcases the latest looks and trends in interior design and is bursting at the seams with inspiration and options to suit any budget, so it could be a great place to start if you are looking for ideas. Taryn says quality interior design is one of Hubbers’ strengths, and with five qualified interior designers on the staff, clients can be confident they will have the best people they can get, striving to create that dream home or renovation outcome every time, regardless of budget, from interior kitchen colours and paint colours to exterior looks and even assistance with furniture shopping.

“Our focus is to pass on our enthusiasm for home renovations and new builds, and to make the process as easy and fun as possible.”

With such a long history and a solid reputation built up over many years, Hubbers is known for the quality of its work, which carries right through to installation. Taryn says she is proud of the fact some of her team have been with Hubbers from the get-go. “Some of our installers are second and third generation, and most have been with us for their whole working careers,” she says. “Our guys absolutely pride themselves on exceptional installation.” “The other aspect that has always been really important to me as a business owner is forming relationships. Our clients really do become our friends. We have fun with them, and help them see outside the square when it comes to design ideas and options.” The relationships that the Hubbers team has formed with its clients has
