Two Friends

Holly Tong, Florist. Runa Kuru Kristjónsdóttir, Photographer

Based in beautiful Gisborne, New Zealand, Runa Kuru, originally from Iceland, and Holly Tong a New Zealander, are the two women behind the self-titled brand. Their individual focuses of photography and floral styling respectively, inspired their combined interest in interior design. With the desire to have fanciful pieces on their own walls, this collaboration between friends bloomed naturally. Their first collection of large-scale prints was launched in 2017 with great success. Since that time they have put their former individual careers as a portrait photographer and florist on hold as they work together on this inspiring collaboration. Their second collection was released earlier this year and their work has been admired far and wide. Their image "Volucris" was selected as one of the 25 exhibited photographs in the 2018 international art awards, Arte Lagune Prize, in Venice, Italy. They are passionate about quality pieces that remain classic and valued for many years to come.
