A family-run homeware store filled with clean lines and local design

In 2014, brothers James, Sean and Thomas Daniels took over their father Grant’s furniture workshop. “Dad had owned his own furniture business for 30 years so we decided to refresh the brand,” explains James.


James, a structural engineer by trade, operates the retail store and showroom as well as creating custom-designed kitchens and laundries for clients. His partner, Jess Thompson, works in the store and is in charge of merchandising.


Thomas has been in furniture design since he left school and now manages the furniture-manufacturing side of the business. Sean, with 10 years in the building industry under his belt, skilfully brings all Thomas’ designs to life.


If you’re in the market for a new kitchen, couch or dining table, make sure you visit The Mood Store. “We’re happy to customise our designs to suit your needs,” says James


In store, the aesthetic is simple, clean-lined, minimalistic and high quality. You’ll find plenty of homeware made from timber, concrete, leather, brass and marble.
