Our Story


Lana has loved textural and organic materials for many years sourcing items on her travels with family and locally to add flair and originality to their own indoor and outdoor spaces. Lana 's husband Todd has a successful landscaping and design business, Groundbreakers Landscaping, providing hundreds of New Zealand homes, apartments and holiday homes with exceptional outdoor spaces to enjoy throughout the year.

Merging the talents of Lana's exceptional eye for design and love of art, and Todd's design and construction skills GBO - Groundbreakers Outdoors and Interiors was formed to bring a little bit of the tropical vibe to Wellington and New Zealand.

Having a number of relationships with bespoke furniture makers and factories both nationally and internationally, Todd and Lana personally source quality furniture and home interiors, that will give your home and garden the wow factor.

“We are so thrilled with the outdoor lounge set we got from GBO - Groundbreakers Outdoors. The whole point of outdoor furniture is to enjoy the sun and a cold drink!  That’s why the generous dimensions of the sofa and armchairs make all the difference - you can actually lounge!  We’d looked at all the mainstream outlets at similar sets before we went with GBO's setting. At first glance they looked the same....but on closer inspection the tightness and quality of the cane weaving, the quality of the cushions and the generosity of the seats we found at GBO was of a whole different standard, and worth every cent. They’ve been on the deck since we bought them a year ago and they look like we got them yesterday. Couldn’t be happier.” Francois - Eastbourne

I Love this store!!! I only just discovered it and it will definitely be my new go to! I would love to buy everything....the designs are amazing and it's all so unique, not what you would usually find at your general house ware store. Customer service was also great, super helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place :) Gemma
